Castor Oil and Baking Soda for Warts

I think I heard this cure here... Definitely works. I have now treated on different people in the family: one wart on nose, one between toes, one of the cheek (which may have been a skin tag) and one on the eyelid (which also may have been a skin tag). You have to be patient, though. Twice a day application for several weeks.

Many years ago my youngest brother was constantly having to have thread warts burnt off from under his chin and neck area. He was very young and this was extremely painful for him. A retired nurse suggested that I might want to try using a slurry of castor oil and bicarbonate of soda on the area twice a day. It worked absolute wonders, they all fell off within a week, and twenty five years later he is still wart free. If I remember correctly, I used a teaspoon of castor oil and two teaspoons of bicarbs to create a sludge which I applied to his skin with a q-tip.

Castor Oil and Baking Soda for Warts

I keep a mixture which I keep in a pot with a little spoon for warts. It's a really simple mix of castor oil and baking soda made into a paste.

Every night for 3 weeks as you are going to bed cover the wart in the paste and tape over it. In the morning you take off the tape and do nothing.

You leave it to slowly die and fall off on it's own over a few weeks. If it's a nice big established wart and doesn't look like it's dying then repeat the 3 weeks of taping at night.

The mixture effectively suffocates the thing, like a plant without oxygen.

Sometimes I use corn plasters and fill the hole in the middle with the paste, this is for my kids who are a bit wriggly - it keeps the paste in place.

It has never failed me and it's the simplest thing to do. It doesn't hurt either. You just have to be patient. Usually you look one day and it's fallen off without you even realising, because it dies after the treatment has ended.
