Tea Tree Oil Cure for Warts

Home Remedy Ingredients:

  • Tea Tree Oil
  • Bandaids

Apply a drop of tea tree oil to a wart and then cover it with a band-aid. Re-apply once or twice a day. Within about two weeks, the wart should fall right off.

[YEA]  07/15/2008: Sandie from Choctaw, Oklahoma: "I find that Tea Tree Oil is great for melting away WARTS ! I tried every cure from freezing to duct tape to cut it off with clippers. It always returned. I then tried Tea Tree oil. Would apply with qtip several times a day. I tried to put a bandaid on with the oil, but the oil would just melt the adheshive. In two weeks my wart was gone and never came back. Since then I have tried it on several relatives with the same great result. I am now trying on my sons acne and it seems to be working with no side effects or scaring."

[YEA]  04/10/2007: Marc from london, UK: "tea tree, the fastest and most effective cure for common warts"

[YEA]  03/20/2012: Chuck from Dayton, Ohio, Usa replies: "I have used tea tree oil on warts with good results. I use full strength right out of the bottle. The trick is how much and how often to apply. Instead of a q-tip, one of those mini-screwdrivers (like in an eyeglasses repair kit) with a flat blade is a perfect applicator. Just dip in the tt oil and coat the wart only. This minimizes irritation of surrounding areas. I would apply every 2-3 days until resolved."

[YEA]  12/13/2006: Edwina from Lexington, KY: "I applied tea tree oil to wart on bottom of son's foot for two weeks, twice a day. When skin had pulled away from wart, and wart was at surface, we soaked foot for about an hour. The wart removed itself from son's foot. We were absolutely amazed! The skin healed back quickly with no scarring. Thank you for making your website available to all for free!"

[YEA]  Wendy from Bedminister: "I too had a wart come up. I used tea tree oil and amazingly it did go away. Wow I was so happen I had the wart for years."

[YEA]  01/02/2010: Sp from Nashville, Tn replies: "Tea Tree Oil vanished the warts that were my fingers. I tried the garlic, banana peel, OTC creams, nothing worked. Then, I tried the tea tree oil; I used full strength 2-3 times daily on the spots and within a week my wart melted away. I then apply the spot once daily for another week to make sure to get rid of any "roots" that's left behind. It has been 2 years now and they are still gone. I only used the tea tree oil for only 2 weeks. They are cheap and very effective.
Hope you have great success with this method."

Tea Tree Oil, DMSO

09/24/2009: Paul from Bloomington, In: "I've had planters warts several times in my life. First time I had them I tried having it burnt and cut out by doctors. Strangely not only did this not work it actually increased the size of the wart. I'm not sure how I came up with this method but I have owned two health food stores so I come into quite a bit of misc information from time to time. I heard that tea tree oil helps to eliminate warts so I started to put that on with a cue tip. With the other side I put on DMSO as it has the ability to draw things deep into the skin. After some days the wart whitened and I started the process of scrapping out the dead skin with a sharp knife to get to the live wart below. In less than two weeks the wart was completely gone. I had suffered with this wart for nearly two nears. I started to always wear shower sandals and avoid subsequent infections until about 10 years later when I stopped wearing them for a while and got infected again.

Again I tried the same process of Tea Tree Oil followed by DMSO and periodic scraping and in about two weeks it was gone. It would have taken less time if I added an Indian healing mud called ____which is simply bentonite clay earlier. This wart was a little more stubborn so after the Tree tree and DMSO and scraping I'd apply the mud and leave it on for the night.

I would be very surprised if this did not work for somebody else. The only thing is you have to be diligent. Every day before bed you need to do this process. Yeah its a little pain but it will cost way less than the doctors, and certainly will be less expensive. Most importantly it actually works."

[YEA]  04/20/2012: Mandy from Houston, Texas replies: "I applied tea tree oil to some small warts I had on my arm and they did go away. Over about 2 weeks time. All I did was apply it every night (or every chance I remembered) and they just seemed to disappear! But, if you have a large wart it will not work, or at least it did not with mine.

IF YOU HAVE A LARGE WART LET ME SUGGEST THIS CHEAP TREATMENT!! SO EXCITING BECAUSE IT IS CHEAP AND WORKED!!! OK I had a BIG wart under my finger finger nail, and I applied everything you can imagine to it!!! And nothing worked!! I was so sad, I could not paint my nails, I kept the nail super short... But, I read some where on the internet that if you chrush an asprin and add a tad bit of water to the asprin and make a paste out of it and applied that to your wart and then put a bandaide over it and let it for 12 hours it would get rid of them.. Well I tried it I did it over a week, and I noticed the texture of the wart looked different, and I kid you not, the wart went away.. It just went away.. I used an emery board on some old skin left on it and it has not came back! This was in Febuary 2 months ago! Try it IT WORKS AND I TRIED EVERYTHING!! :D"

Tea Tree, Coconut Oil

[YEA]  06/20/2009: Kalee from Rice Lake, WI: "About 8 months ago I had two warts around and under my pointer and middle finger of my left hand and one on the middle knuckle of my pointer finger on my right hand. I had these warts since I was 16 (I am now 20), so I had them for about 4 years. I had tried many things: Banana peel, duct tape, nail polish, apple cider vinegar, cutting them off, wart remover, freezing them...The list could go on. Some of them decreased the size by a small margin, but barely noticeable. I perform on clarinet and piano, and to have unsightly fingers as mine was embarrassing! Like I said, I tried all those things. I came across the combination of tea tree oil and coconut oil by trial and error. I love this site so when I got fed up with the warts, I came here. I tried tea tree oil on it's own, but it burned my fingers and they turned red and peeled where i had placed the cotton ball. They started going away! But I couldn't stand the burning when I used it. I saw some people used coconut oil on here, so I tried that by itself and it worked a little bit and it healed the burns from the tea tree oil. Then I combined the two and voila! No burns or peeling skin and the warts were gone by the fourth or fifth day of use! What I used was a very small part of a cotton ball with a dab of tea tree oil, then I put a bit of coconut oil on my fingers and wrapped a bandaid around it. Don't use a whole lot of tea tree oil, the piece of cotton should be small enough to fit over the wart, but not much bigger than that. Use more coconut oil than tea tree oil so that the burns won't be that bad. Hope this helps those who can't find a cure like I couldn't!"

[YEA]  02/17/2012: Joseph from Boulder, Colorado: "I used thuja oil, otherwise known as cedar oil, to amazing effect on a good-sized wart on my index finger. I am an acupuncturist and warts are anathemic to my practice.... So my wife (who's a great herbalist) suggested thuja. The big caveat here is that thuja is hepato-toxic, will cause harm to your liver if inhaled. The fda took it off the shelves because someone whom was treating a wart beneath his nose died from frequent applications. So with that said, don't inhale it, or ingest it. Apply on wart only, twice a day. My wart began flaking after two applications, then the core actually fell out after 2 days, and has not returned. Have used it on patients to good effect. Plantar warts are deeper and would require longer application."

02/17/2012: Francisca from Zug, Switzerland replies: "Interesting post Joseph. Here in Europe Thuja is often prescribed to patients with warts. It has never worked for me though but I am talking about homeopathy so I suppose there are no gases in it anymore! I think that there is also tincture but as I haven't used it for a number of years I don't know anymore! I do have cedar essential oil, would that work for my last very flat little wart on one of my little fingers? I had the others frozen by the dermatologist, I got fed up of trying all kinds of treatments that never seemed to work! I suppose that it is not the same oil as cedar oil is used in aromatherapy!"

[YEA]  05/01/2010: Ger from Dublin, Ireland: "regarding warts.i advised a friend of mine who is a hairdresser to use homeopathy remedy thuja 30.i didnt actualy think he would take it or at least take it correctly but the next time i saw him his hands were completly wart free. it took him only a short time"

[YEA]  08/29/2007: Melissa from Alexandria, Virgina: "My son had a wart on his finger. I bought Thuja ointment, available at any healthfood store. We used it every night for 5 to 6 weeks. He complained that it wasn't working until one day it started drying out and flaked away over the next few days. My husband had 3 or 4 on the bottom of his feet. He also used the ointment with amazing results. This homeopathic OINTMENT will cure warts. Give it time. It is not an overnight cure. And also put a bandaid on top at bedtime."

[YEA]  08/09/2007: Adam from Andover, Massachusetts: "I had plantar's warts on my feet for many years. A naturopathic doctor told me to buy thuja oil and finely chop up an aspirin and make a paste using about 5 or 6 drops of thuja oil on the aspirin. Apply the paste to the plantar's warts.

I did it and after about two weeks the warts disappeared completely. Thuja oil can be bought at a health food store or online. There were a few times that I applied the thuja oil directly without the paste. It killed the virus and the warts went away. This was six months ago and my feet are fine,fine, fine!"

[NAY]  04/20/2012: Mandy from Houston, Texas replies: "This was a waste of money for me! I tried everything, and finally read online how crushing an asprin and adding a little water to it making a paste would kill the wart I tried it and it worked!!! Cover it in the paste (300 mg of asprin) then cover with an bandaide for 12 hours, do this for a week or two and the wart will start to change! Good Luck! "

[YEA]  04/12/2008: Steven from Chiang Mai, Thailand: "Apple Cider Vinegar, HP (remedy) plantars wart(ailment):

I have had plantars warts on the bottom of my feet for close to 15 yrs now... 4 of those years they were nothing more than an irritating itch that i could put up with without much of a headache.. then i started to scuba dive and i found my feet burning inside my fins and progressivly got more irritating.. my guess is the salt water and depth combination had a hand in that. so after a year i moved off the island i was living on and moved back to the city... i think i should remark that i never had much knowledge about warts.. always had perfect skin even as a teen.. went to the doctor 5 times to remove 5 warts... using the usual freezing,burning,cutting and combinations of all of the above with the horrible result of the warts growing back much bigger after each operation.. the doctors said that the root wasnt cut out so the warts would just return... (should have told me before he took my money i think).. tried the duofilm and urine cream... just burned holes in my feet making me so sensitive that i walked on the left side of my foot... causing my bone on the outerside of my foot to change shape to the point of being able to bear my weight on the bone instead of using the ball of my feet..in a clear act of despiration after stopping the duofilm (used it a year without positve results) i contemplated drilling a hold into my foot.. filling it with super glue and yanking it out of my foot.. i know i know.. crazy... but pain 24/7 for so long made me alittle desperate to be free of it... i had looked on the internet numerous times but never came across ACV before.. this is about 2 weeks ago.. ive been using acv full strength everyday now for 7 days.. the first day i just stuck my whole foot into a plastic shoe box with my heal elevated by a small plastice box inside.. the burning came after the first 20 min. but desperate to remove this virus from my foot i left it in for 90 min.. then washed it off with clear water and applied a small piece of duct tape with a piece of cotten in the middle soaked in acv.the following morning the area looked like it had swollen 2 times the size.. so i used a razor blade to trip off what i thought to be dead skin.. finally trimmed across the vein or hole that the virus i guess is using to breath and bled for 30 min..i have been applying the tape,cotton and acv coninuously now for 7 days.. also drinking Ted's recipe for acv.. the reults have been excellent so far.. although the pain for the past 7 days has prevented me from much getting sleep. the wart is black/red now and i think dieing.. i hope. if it works.. ill be jogging often.. thanks very much for the information shared here by all... i think if this didnt work i would have tried the super glue.. OUCHHH.. ill post again when my feet are clear..."

[YEA]  03/20/2007: James from Victorville, California: "This may be posted in wrong area, but I have a strange cure for warts that worked for me. A math teacher of mine in my 10th grade year noticed I had them severely on my hands. By severe, I mean, dermatologists could not get rid of some by burning or freezing. She recommended I try Tums Antacids. I chewed 1 regular strength mint pill once a days before bedtime. In no longer than a month's time, my warts had simply ceased to exist. I had tried everything before, dermatologists, duct tape, liquids, but this method worked best for me. I will say, i do randomly have one spurt up from time to time, but I just start tums again, and away they go. So hope this helps."

[YEA]  12/27/2013: Scot from Pen Argyl Pa: "I've had this wart on the 4th finger of my right hand for years but since I didn't have health insurance, couldn't afford a doctor and it wasn't really bothering me I never did much about it. A few weeks ago I started taking turmeric 2-3 times a day. Not much, just the tip of a teaspoon in certain food or drink. It's the only change I've really made. Last week I noticed the cauliflower getting smaller and it starting to develop dead skin over it. The cauliflower is tiny now, about 1/8th-1/10th the size. I've just started a few days ago using a nail file on it to remove the dead skin. It's looking like by next week it will be gone completely. I haven't had to rub any nasty stuff on it and cover with bandages or tape. There's been absolutely no pain or discomfort of any type. What a pleasant surprise to have such results from something I was going to do with or without the wart.. And with all the health benefits of Turmeric, we should all be adding it to our diets anyway. Depending on what you put it on or in, there isn't much difference in the taste. It actually tastes pretty good in warm milk with a bit of raw honey or agave nectar and sometimes some cinnamon too. It's a great drink for cold days or just before bed. The mom down the street has started giving it to her husband and kids instead of hot chocolate and they like it. This is the first year none of them have had any colds yet too. It's also not too bad in my morning coffee. You just have to keep stirring the drink because it doesn't dissolve and settles to the bottom.

The one drawback to turmeric is take too much and it will dehydrate you. If you need to take more of it, drink more fluids."
