Nearly everyone is bothered with some form of a wart on their skin during their lifetime. These pesky bumps are caused by HPV (Human Papillomavirus). This particular virus causes rapid growth of cells which form the wart. Over the counter remedies may remove the wart; however, they cannot destroy the HMV virus. Freezing or burning off a wart with chemicals is not an option for essential oil enthusiasts. The preferable method of removal is to kill the virus with our P.U.R.E. Lotus Naturals oils. Other essential oil brands do not offer our pledge, and in this instance, it is critical not to introduce a watered-down oil or one that may have pollutants.
Before deciding which essential oil is best for wart removal, one should know what type of wart they have. Common warts usually appear on fingers or toes and have a raised appearance. They are rough and scaly to the touch. Flat warts grow on the arms, thighs or face. Their name comes from having a flat-topped appearance which can be pink, yellow or most commonly brownish. The plantar wart is probably the most painful because it appears on the soles of the feet and grows into the skin. Soaking the foot in a small pan of warm water with Epsom salt and a few drops of our Oregano oil and a few drops of Clove Bud oil can relieve discomfort. This remedy will allow the Oregano oil to penetrate the plantar wart. Some warts are more difficult to remove and may require more intensive therapies.
The process of wart removal may take a couple of weeks or even longer. The time necessary for removal depends on the size and variety of the wart. It is important to remember that warts can be contagious, so keeping sterile conditions is critical. Always clean the affected area with warm water before applying any oils. The warm water will soften the wart and make it more susceptible to receive the therapeutic value of the oils.
The two most effective oils for treatment of warts are Lotus Oregano and Tea Tree Oil, also known as Melaleuca. Our Oregano oil is not only antiviral but also has antibiotic properties. Oregano oil has a powerful ingredient called carvacrol. Oregano oil is highly effective in boosting the immune system and eliminating the HPV virus. It is the fastest acting antiviral oil available. We do not ingest any oils, but placing a few drops of Oregano oil on a small cotton ball at night and keeping it in place with a band-aid will give the oil a chance to kill the virus that caused the wart in the first place. This same process should be repeated every night for 15 days or as long as needed.

Lotus Tea Tree Oil is also highly effective. Our Tea Tree Oil acts as a natural antiseptic and anti-fungal as well as anti-viral. You can apply a few drops of either Oregano oil or Tea Tree Oil or both to a cotton ball and secure to the affected area overnight. Warts need oxygen to survive, so keeping the oil soaked cotton secured with a band-aid at night will also help to starve the wart.
A lowered immune system is usually considered to be the cause for the appearance of warts on the skin. This conclusion came about because children are more susceptible to warts than adults. Their immune systems have not had sufficient time to develop. A healthy immune system can ward off viruses but, unfortunately, our bodies are being bombarded daily with airborne pollutants. At Lotus Naturals, we strive to educate and provide wellness alternatives to strengthen our immune system and even repair damaged areas with the correct use of our essential oils.
For safe removal of warts from the body one should first test the oil of choice on the skin. Oregano and Tea Tree Oil can cause a burning sensation. You need to be very careful in applying oils to children’s sensitive skin. We have a line that is child safe. We recommend that oils should always be diluted before putting on your skin. Adults are more able to tolerate these oils directly applied to the skin, but the safest alternative is to blend a few drops of oil in coconut oil. We also have a SMARTblend line that is perfectly blended for you.
For maximum benefit, one can use a couple of drops of one or both of these essential oils on the affected area. Also, Clove Bud oil has an antiviral compound and acts as a natural anesthetic if there is pain associated with the wart. You can prepare a blend of oils with a few drops of apple cider vinegar (with the mother) and a small amount of virgin coconut oil. Keeping the mixture in a small clean container will have it always ready to apply. It can be safely applied up to four times a day. Apply the essential oils of your choice to the affected area with a Q-tip during the day and soak a cotton ball for the nighttime application.
For safe and effective wart removal a blend of oils may be the perfect solution. Blending can increase healing properties by giving them a boost. Blending one or more of the mentioned essential oils will be highly effective in combatting the virus associated with warts. Another essential oil that has antiviral and antiseptic properties is Eucalyptus oil. This oil is skin-friendly and will not irritate the skin. Lemongrass, Frankincense, and Myrrh also contain antiviral properties.
The reason blending our oils may be the most effective means to remove warts is the synergistic effect oils have naturally. There are antimicrobial properties in the biological makeup of essential oils. Anyone who has listened to any drug commercial on TV knows that the side effects and potential hazards of ingesting most drugs are worse than the disease. On the other hand, essential oils offer a safe alternative and can be safely blended. Blending can increase the effectiveness of the oils. Pharmaceutical drugs, on the other hand, almost always have contraindications when interacting with other drugs in the system. For this reason, Lotus Naturals essential oils are the perfect solution for removing warts and other conditions as well.

In conclusion, there is one further remedy you might want to consider to maintain wellness in your home. At Lotus Naturals, we have prepared a blend called Resistance Protected Blend. This specially formulated blend, unique to Lotus, was created with essential oils that are known for their antibacterial properties. It includes Clove Bud, Lemon, Sweet Orange, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary Essential oils. Using a few drops of Resistance Protected Blend in a diffuser will protect your home from airborne germs and viruses. Breathing this blend will help to purify the air, and also add an aromatic fragrance. Once the wart is removed, you will want to maintain a healthy environment that will not be conducive to the HPV virus impacting your life in the future.
It is important to remember that our emotional well-being also affects our health. According to Dr. David Stewart, a noted authority on essential oils, “A state of cheerfulness is elevating to the immune system, helping to protect you from many illnesses. Thus, our emotional state is a key element to our state of health and to the healing of disease.”
