Do a quick Google search and you will find unlimited advice on home remedies for plantar warts.
The tips range from applying fresh garlic, to mixing a poultice of crushed up aspirin.
And then there’s the classic: cover it with duct tape.
How do I know this? Because a few months ago I had a bad mommy moment. I realized that the teeny, tiny plantar wart on my five year old daughter’s foot had somehow grown into a painful, throbbing mass…
In fact, in my daughter’s case, it had become so painful that it was making her cry at night. *cringe*.
It. Was. Serious.
Still, rather than rush to the doctor, we opted to look for a natural remedy.
We looked at things like:
The remedy that did work is so easy, anyone can do it.
It was shared by another momma.
And since it has now been used successfully on at least three children, I figure we’ve pretty much done clinical trials.
Here it is:
That’s it. Seriously. Even if you forget and just do it once a day, it will still work.
I know, right? Perfect for mommas and kids who have got alot on the go…
My observations: the essential oil began to attack and ‘eat’ the root of the plantar wart (almost immediately). It created a bit of a hole (that my daughter didn’t complain about at all) until it reached, exposed, and killed the black roots of the plantar wart.
Here’s another amazing part: The skin around the wart stayed completely intact and healthy.
Within 2-3 weeks, the wart was completely gone. Without a trip to the doctor to ‘burn’ it off with liquid nitrogen (ouch!).
Without using any yucky medicated bandaids.
