First off, I've got to tell you that I tried a certain brand of all natural remedy from a website and all it did was burn my skin and cause major irritation, discomfort and bleeding. I also tried the banana peel wrap, the Castor oil & baking soda paste as well as applying household bleach with a cotton swab. The best thing that worked for me was to first vigourously apply bleach with a cotton swab to all warts and then let the bleach dry for a couple of minutes. Once dry, vigourously apply raw apple cidar vinegar with a cotton swab until you have removed all of the superficial/dead skin tissue and you can only see the warts in their plain shape. Repeat this three times daily. They'll be completely gone within about 10 days.
This really isn't a home remedy but after 5 years of having planters warts my mom took me to the dermetologis and she put blister beetle juice on my warts. I saw her every three weeks. After three visits even the most stubborn wart which was about a half inch big was gone. I know it's not a home remedy but you can buy blister beetle juice off-line. Trust me, I never thought I'd get rid of my warts and I did! Try it if nothing else works. Good luck!
This is regarding Bloodroot. I have made and have used a blood root past also know as black salve. A doctor that I have worked with now uses this almost exclusively to treat warts. I have never seen it not work. Here is the recipe:
1/2 cup powdered Blood Root (Sanguinaria Canadensis)
1/2 cup Zinc Chloride, crystals or liquid
1/2 cup common white flour
1 1/2 cup warm water
100ml Chaparral extract or 100gm of powdered Chaparral (Larrea mexicana)
Pre-mix all but the water, thoroughly, before adding to the water. Using a stainless steel double boiler. Put in water, then stir in the other ingredients. Stir in well using a wooden spoon. Cook for thirty minutes over boiling water, stirring constantly. Application is much the same as cansema. Apply a thin layer (2-3mm) of the paste over the affected area and cover for 24 hours. Then remove the covering but do not disturb the lesion at all, do not attempt to pull the cancer out at any time, it should fall out in 10 days or so. Some people with sensitive skin put Vaseline or antibiotic ointment around the cancer so that the paste does not irritate the skin.
Bloodroot Paste cured a Planters wart (had for 10 years and tried everthing) and a wart on my left arm. Use as directed and be patient results take at least a week. Also dont be too frightened by the hole it leaves in your skin it will heal nicely.
Accidentally came upon this. I purchased castor oil for my hair. Each night I would rub castor oil over my palms and unto my hair. A few days later I noticed that a wart located on my palm had begun to dry up. I did a bit of research and indeed it turns out castor oil gets rid of them.
I had previously tried ACV which did the trick rather quickly but kept returning. The last few times it did very little, I suppose the wart was becoming immune to the ACV.
The wart is almost completely gone, it has been about two weeks since I first started rubbing castor oil.
As a young child at the age of eleven I always noticed these horrible looking things, the whole length of my left hand, I later found out they were warts, also caused by some sort of virus, I decided to use my mother's corn remover and it took a little bit longer then I expected but after a few months went by they were all gone. Now I am beginning another new search for a virus that doctors are playing games with// a couple of doctors kept telling me it was a mild infection and gave me antibiotics. Finally after many years off and on, I came very close to having a heart attack... The first thing hosp's. do when you go into ER is hook you up with Iv's and antibiotics, "Not good." I do mostly probiotics/ even though this virus will never end...
Needless to say, back on the subject of warts, here is a great web site I found for warts as well, rather surprising but castor oil is another good method.
Warts are caused by viruses and need air and moisture to survive. Castor oil applied religiously will cut off both and the plantar wart will disappear in a matter of weeks. Much better than paying a Dermatologist to have the little buggers burned or frozen, only to be left with visible scars.
As a teenager I had five "seed" warts on my right middle finger. They drove me nuts for a about three years until my mother suggested I use castor oil. I would soak small pieces of of a cotton ball in the castor and then place it on the wart held on with surgical tape. After about three weeks of this all of my warts had disolved. There was no scar and the surrounding skin was not effected. I hear that castor oil is also good for longer, thicker eye lashes.
Mixing Castor Oil with baking soda, enough to make it like gum, applied directly over the mole or wart will make them go away! Do this every evening with the intent that you are making it go away.

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.
Castor Oil and Baking Soda
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
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.
Try chalk that you use on the Blackboard because one time I had a wart under my thumbnail and I took some chalk, chopped and shaved it finally and packed it under my thumbnail put a Band-Aid over it in a few days it was gone.
Whenever I contract a wart I go to nature and search for the plant called Chelidonium majus (Swallow Wort / Greater Celandine).
How it works:
This plant produces a yellow 'milk' when its stems are cut. I apply this milk directly on the wart (only wart - omit healthy skin) and leave it to dry. I take a section of such plant with me home, and I apply the milk few more times over next 1-2 days. It depends on the size of the wart. Sometimes I need just one or two applications and the wart is gone within a week or two. (You need to allow some time for it to disappear and for skin to restore itself in that damaged place.)
The strongest milk seems to be down where the stems turn to roots - it has nearly orange colour. Make sure, you don't destroy whole plant, while taking a section of it - it might help you next time and you will already know where it grows...
It has never failed to kill the wart on me and the plant is actually quite well known in central EU countries as a wart killer. I have managed to heal warts on other people with it too. You can even find it during winter under the snow, if you know where it grows, or you have it in your garden.
1. The downside of it is, that after the milk dries on your skin, it goes through the oxidation process and turns dark brown.
So for few days you have to walk around with a dark brown spot.
2. Be careful with the milk - it contains alkaloid chelidonine. Alkaloids are powerful substances found in many plants, able to cure various diseases, but should be handled with extra caution and used wisely. Make sure children understand that they shall not put it into their mouth / eyes. Keep away from home pets, mainly from birds.
Coconut oil does not work for warts on feet and hands. Apple cider vinegar does. I use no other moisterizer for over a year on my feet and hands everyday, and I saw no difference on the warts on my hands.
