I have cured three warts with thuja essential oil. I put some drops on cotton and then secure it with tape for woods over the wart overnight. DO NOT DO THIS WITH GARLIC. With garlic it can burn you deeply while you are sleeping and leave a scar but with thuja only some redness will be around thw wart. My last wart withered in one day and one third came off in my fingers the first day. It is better to file the wart a little (not bleed it) before first application and maybe sometimes later if it doesn't go away in one week.

The other two wart were at my index finger and needed weeks to vanish completely. Finally it left no scar at all.

The bad thing is that I've used thuja for big moles for months and they it didn't succeed. Just withered a little.

I'd like to correct my previous post and write that if you put thuja oil overnight at sensitive areas the second or third day you can get a burn and pus. So only for just one night and then without cotton or bondage it might be better.

Finally it was my mistake that I didn't succeed with thuja at moles. I didn't put cotton and tape over it so the essential oil of thuja just evaporated without cotton.

In about 10 days, my mole of about a big corn kernel, has withered completely.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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!

I began getting hooked on clamato juice (tomato juice w/ clam juice in it). I have been drinking probably 4-5 glasses a day. I have about ten warts on my hands and I have noticed they have all decreased in size and some of them have already disappeared.

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...

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.

I've had a wart on the bottom on my foot for 5 years. I've tried these methods to get rid of it: banana peel, duct tape, vinegar, oregano oil, over-the-counter meds, and freezing it (3 times!) by a dermatologist. For the past 4 days I've been putting a slice of fresh turmeric (and band aid) over it, once in the morning and once at night. It's almost completely gone now. Turmeric is magic. I hope this works for you, too.

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.

Please add Tumeric to your list of remedies for warts. For about year, I was troubled with a wart on the on my right palm. Resonable--though not excellent nutrition-would shrink the wart and cause it to blacken slightly. But it was still there. Due to other health concerns, about 6 weeks ago, I began taking moderately high dosages of tumeric/curcumin (4 capsules, 3 times per day) My wart is now absolutely GONE without a trace--not smaller--GONE!!!!!!

I do offer the following cautions: NEVER take curcumin on an empty stomach. It is best taken with plenty of healthy fats, and BE CAREFUL TAKING CURCUMIN IF YOU TAKE PRESCRIPTION BLOOD THINNERS... But this works!!!

This is my story about warts. I promised myself I would post this once I figured out a cure! I am so happy I intuitively found Fresh Turmeric Root and it has healed a wart problem I've been trying to treat for 2 years.

With the previous methods I tried, the wart would only get very small but not go away!

I think I first got this plantar wart on my foot during my travels in India. I never knew what it was because it was totally flat, less than 2 mm across and looked more like a divot or a flake of dry skin than what I usually think of as a wart.

It wasn't until my boyfriend asked me about it that I went and purchased an over the counter remedy. I bought a "wart stick" which is basically like a chapstick with salicylic acid in it. The wart came out from hiding and then I knew what it was! It got bigger and I felt it was no where near strong enough to remove a wart which had potentially been there 8 years without my knowing it.

Thats is when I found this website and tried several of the natural remedies. I didn't want to go to a doctor or have it freezed or cut off. I had read that sometimes these methods only cause more warts to come out!

I tried Banana Peel, and my foot really hurt! And it didn't seem to be getting any better. (Now I think it had similar effect as turmeric - but it was tough for me to keep fresh peel around). I tried ACV but it was too stinky and my boyfriend hated it). I also tried a few others but no luck. I tried to go to a clinic but they only recommended drugstore remedies.

Thats when I thought I would give the stronger over the counter medicine a try. I bought several brands of salicylic acid in a brush on jar, a bandaid with medication, the little stickers and the at home freezing kits! I used these for a year and a half! Always thinking somehow I was getting close. With extreme diligence its size would go down but the qualities of it would not change. It was always white. It would never scab or come to the surface.

I must have spent way over $200 on these meds, but they only prolonged my battle. In the mean time I couldn't get mani-pedis or feel great with my shoes off! I tried using exfoliating pumice stones and beach sand, toothpicks and razor blades to get the wart out! DO NOT DO THIS! It will spread little bits of the virus all over the shower or bathroom or whatever place you are working in!

All of my fussing with the wart on my foot ended up cause a new wart on my hand this time! I immediately tried the over the counter salicylic glue bottle but it got bigger and bigger - until I had it on my hand for one month! I was starting to feel very desperate and sought out a podiatrist. I got a price quote for a deep cryogenic treatment started saving the $150, but I felt conflicted because of the one on my hand!

I do NOT recommend any of the traditional western medical treatments! Plantar warts are deep and you cant go in to get the wart (it seems)! You have to make the wart come out and kill it from the root or internally. It will naturally die and be expelled by new layers of skin if you use what I eventually used!

FRESH TURMERIC ROOT was my savior! I found it at a local Asian Grocery. It looks exactly like a ginger root only a little smaller and very yellow/orange.

I sliced the root and used a bandaid to stick it to my foot and hand. I would push on the area to make the juices come out and to stimulate the area into sending my natural immune defences out.

I also made a daily tea drink of Grated Turmeric Root, Ginger, and Dried Hibiscus Flowers. These are all great for the immune system and the Hibiscus has a ton of Vitamin C!

I really think the tropical nature of these plants helped out with the tropical nature of my wart!

I think that Banana Peel might work the same way, but I felt like all the bananas with black chunks of peel missing were messy. Also Salicylic Acid may work somehow, but the over the counter dosages are very small. I consider Salicylic Acid to be a natural remedy because it comes from willow bark. Maybe if you went to a live willow tree and stripped a piece of bark it would be more potent.

I love the fresh Turmeric Root because it is a lot less messy then the powder and probably 20X more potent because you can keep it alive unwrapped in the refrigerator!

At first my warts got big and like little mushroom clouds at their maximum diameter about 5 or 6 mm. But NOW they were really at the surface and their size diminished as I gently scraped the dead skin off with a toothpick. Within the first week they were down to about 2 mm in size with the area around all being replaced by new pink skin!

They hurt for that first week, but now I am at the end of my second week and they look great. The skin is completely flat, the warts have scabbed up (red color- not white! ) and the scabs have fallen off. I see new skin underneath and it just seems a little dry and yellow - because of the root.

I feel extremely confident that this is my final cure! I am going to continue to treat for one more week just to be sure. But a 3 week treatment surely beats 2 years of constant applications and worry with the over the counter medications!

I am so RELIEVED! I hope you try this method. Fresh turmeric root is easy to find in Asian or Indian Groceries. Dry root can also be found - I would rehydrate it before using so that the turmeric can really seep into the skin. The power must be of some use as well and I have heard of making a paste. I'm sure it can be used if that is your last resort, but the whole root makes a nice little slice that will easily stay under a bandage!

GOOD LUCK! I hope to hear more success stories using FRESH TURMERIC ROOT! Whatever you do don't give up! Find a natural remedy that works or keep trying new ones till you find one that works for you! Cheers!

Hi Monika, I'm excited to read your post. I've had a wart on my foot for YEARS.. Been to 3 foot docs and now I'm going to a dermatologist. My last visit was Friday and I'm sure in some way this thing is laughing at me and saying 'are you serious' as today there is no sign of the 'freezing' the doc performed. I told her to freeze the hello out of it.. she did and today its like I never went.

So, yes, I'm quite interested about your treatment and this tea you are making. Would you mind posting your recipe for the tea?

Thanks a million and here's to hopefully happy feet here soon! Best wishes...Addy

I love EC, since then I been using it on my ailments and giving all remedies a tried. I have to share that I had great success with URINE. I had for several years tiny warts on all my neck, the warts are not plantar so there is no way I can cover them with makeup. I tried vitamin C and ACV but the warts were still there! So anyways I kept on doing them. I saw the URINE THERAPY on this page and wanted to try for my candida and give it a shot to see what happen to my body but I failed.. I just could not drink it! But I used it and apply it all over my face and neck-thinking what wrong could that do... in the morning when I woke up I saw my face clearer and checked my neck, WOW I WAS SO HAPPY I COULD Barley see any WARTS!! I'am super happy know I can wear my V tops with confidence!! I will keep on trying it!

Dear Reggina, I have the same problem as you had, that is warts around the neck and face. When did you start seeing change? Basically how long did you apply the urine for? Thanks a bunch, well and truly appreciated.

Urine therapy cured my warts. All 3 times that I have gotton pregnant I get warts. The past 2 times I have had them frozen off in my ob/gyn office. This past time I got a lot of them and they spread into my nailbeds were they were no longer able to be frozen. My gyno sent me to a dermatologist and they attempted to remove them with chemo injections. I got about 10 shots in my nail beds with hurt like crazy yet nothing happened to the warts. I went back a month later to the dr. as advised and he decided that they were stubborn enough to not continue with the shots but to rather try a topical treatment called DNCB. Some sort of chemical that is suppose to induce an allergic reaction and have my immune system fight off the warts. Well, it back-fired. I applied the treatment as prescribed and I ended up with huge puss blisters which they said were normal but it developed into a bad strep infection. I got really sick: fever, chills, achy, and fingers that were disabled (which was really difficult with a newborn baby). I was put on an antibiotic for the strep infection and started feeling better slowly. About a month last I developed some bowel problems and started to feel sick with bloody stools for about a week. I went to the dr. again and it was decided after a ton of testing that I had "Antibiotic enduced Colitis". I couldn't believe it. All this just in hopes of taking away a few warts. I of course was fed up so I got online. This is when I found urine therapy. It sounded easy enough, cheap enough, and it couldn't seem to hurt. I wasn't brave enough to actually drink it but I read that by just putting the urine on the warts would do the trick. I figured I could handle that so I did it and IT WORKED!! I can't believe it. What a miracle. After all that trouble, money, pain, and all I had to do was pee on my hands. The warts that were once "stubborn" and huge, cracked, bleeding are now a problem of the past. I don't know why or how it works but I am glad I know this cheap and painless cure.

Vapor Rub

Posted by Trishygirl (Wanganui, New Zealand) on 05/31/2014

Last week I had a cold and so I tried putting Vicks Vapor Rub on soles of my feet and between my toes to give me relief from coughing at night. I put socks on and went to bed. After 3 night of this (It did help with the cough) I noticed that a wart on my toe was nearly gone. A quick search on the web showed up incidents of it working for others. Hope this is helpful to others. Take care
