Wash yourself with Sandalwood Soap and just before you get out of the shower put some of the soap on the warts and let it dry on. This company is trying to make a business of it with FDA approval:
Here is one of the earlier patents. I selected this URL because it gives many human individual cases if you scroll all the way down. In addition, these two sections caught my eye:
"At the time of filing this application, further clinical work is underway to refine the method of the present invention and to further characterize the active components of the sandalwood oil. At this time, a total of fifteen (15) individuals have undergone the inventive therapy and all 15 experienced the eradication of their palmar or plantar warts. The application of the sandal soap at least twice daily with occasional placement of soap residue on the warts, results in disappearance of the warts in about four (4) weeks. Deeply embedded warts took up to eight (8) weeks to resolve. Of the 15 individuals treated to date, twelve (12) were previously treated with salicylic acid preparations, liquid nitrogen or surgical techniques. In all twelve (12) cases, the warts reappeared. Upon reappearance of the warts, the subjects enrolled into the sandal soap study and have successfully completed their course of therapy and the warts have failed to reappear. It was noted that the individuals that had previously received salicylic acid treatments were slower to respond to the inventive therapy when warts were covered by scar tissue. However, in all cases, the warts had disappeared within four (4) to eight (8) weeks and recurrence of warts had not yet been detected."
"In light of these results, the inventors have concluded that sandalwood oil (or a component of the oil) is not only an antiviral agent against HPV, DNA pox virus and perhaps other viruses but it would also be a chemoprotective agent for skin cancers and an effective therapy for cancerous or precancerous lesions of the skin and the female genital tract.
Since warts are caused by human papillomaviruses (HPV) of different types and the sandalwood oil disclosed herein can eradicate this virus, it is contemplated that this composition may be useful in methods of eradicating other viral-induced tumors. Genital warts are also caused by HPV. Genital warts in women are a genuine nuisance and are very hard to eradicate. The sandalwood may also be useful to prevent other DNA viral lesions. Its effect on other DNA as well as RNA viruses needs further investigation. The fact that sandalwood oil appears to be extremely effective in eradicating palmar and plantar warts caused by the DNA HPV virus and also effective in treating Molluscum contagiosum rash caused by DNA pox virus supports its effectiveness against other DNA and RNA viruses.
It is proposed that the continued use of sandalwood oil or the components of sandalwood oil (such as B1- and B2-santalol) would be effective for the prophylactic treatment of viral tumors and eradication of DNA viral infections and bacterial infections caused by streptococci or staphylococci."
Sandalwood Soap as it is specifically called out in some of the literature that I have read and clinical trials. There really aren't tons and tons of companies that manufacturer Sandalwood Soaps. Another that readers could try would be Sandalwood-Tumeric Soap w/Neem in it. This latter soap additionally has coconut oil and castor oil too.
I sincerely hope this helps some folks.
