Though the six most common types of warts eventually heal by themselves, people often remove
common warts and plantar warts, as they are contagious and sometimes painful. Medical methods of wart removal can be draconian: burning, cutting, freezing, and peeling the infected skin.
Medical treatments eliminate the symtpom without addressing the cause: the Human Papilloma Virus. Essential oils with anti-viral and immune support properties both target the virus, and bolster the immune system simultaneously.

Blends for Adults and Adolescents
Combine in a 12 ml bottle:
4 ml Bay Laurel
2 ml Thyme
1 ml Melissa
2 ml Hyssop
2 ml Lavender
Soften the skin of the affected area in warm water for five minutes before applying oils. Apply 2-3 drops of the anti-viral blend to each wart, 2-3 times per day. Air dry, or cover with a clean bandage. Within 2-8 weeks the wart and its root virus will be gone. Though the natural treatment is a longer course, it is easy on the body.
Preparation for Children Under 12
In a 5 ml bottle, add 5 drops of the above concentrate into 2 tsp of cider vinegar. Use a cotton swab to precisely apply the mixture to the wart, taking care to avoid the skin around it.
Note: If the skin around the wart becomes irritated, apply Tamanu oil before and/or after the concentrate. Tamanu oil is known for its ability to heal skin and provide pain-relief.
