How to Get Rid of Warts

essential oils work on warts
UPDATE:  Did you know it's been over 5 years and my son hasn't had another wart since!

A little note before I start.  I'm sure you have noticed that I have my favorite tools, products, books and brands that I have and will recommend.  Some of these things I am an affiliate for and have made a little bit of money telling you about them.  Some of them I just share because it's what I use I like it and I enjoy sharing good things with others.  Thus the many, many recipes I have posted just for the simple fun of sharing them!

My point is that I just want you to KNOW without ANY reservations;  That I will not ever recommend something I have not already tried, or used myself and found it to be of value to me and my family.  I will not recommend companies that I think or feel have questionable practices.

Okay onto warts!
Yeah I know not the Tastiest subject. Those of you who are interested in a very easy pain free way of wart removal stick around and I will share this past experience of removing warts off my son's knee!

Warts all over his knee
Yep I know lovely huh!  I didn't actually take a before picture, I really didn't expect such dramatic results, I had to go looking for one.  Luckily my boys frequently have very big holes in the knees of their pants so it wasn't to hard to find one I could zoom in on his knee with.

Alright from what I have understood warts are a virus and/or a fungus and people with compromised immune systems tend to get them easier and have a harder time fighting them off.  This is the case with my son (I shared more about that here Part 1, Part 2, Part 3)  and for some reason he was just getting more and more of them.

These on his knee here were the worst and they were starting to get pretty annoying because he is a boy and likes to crawl around and they would crack and bleed and with shorts weather on its way I really wanted to be done with them.  So I got these essential oils!

I have told you a little bit before about Be Young  now called Younifi essential oils.  I have tried lots of different brands and there is a lot of good ones out there but for the most part these just seem to be my personal favorites. They have worked just like they are supposed to every time!

Anyway this is what I did.  I placed the Guardian blend directly on the warts then I taped on a cotton pad and soaked it with the Lemongrass.  I had him leave in on overnight.

How to remove warts easily

The next morning his knee looked like this and felt pretty hot.  I was supposed just leave the bandage on and continue to put the lemongrass on until the warts were gone but I was a little concerned because of the color and how hot the knee was.  So I told Curt we would leave the bandage off and not put anymore oils on until we saw what was going to happen.  I also could see something was obviously going on so I took a picture so I would be able to reference it!

Easy pain free wart removal

Well after about two weeks this is what happened.  His warts basically dried up and fell off.  There was one day when we got home from Church that he told me a wart had fallen off in his shoe.  I was like, "thanks for sharing son."  I know it's way gross but there wasn't any bleeding and very little scabbing.  And we only ever applied the oils that one time!

Warts gone in less than two weeks

I took this picture of his knee a few weeks later.  We rubbed a little coconut oil on it after that and there was very little if any scaring.  And guess what else?  He had few warts on his other knee and his ankle that we didn't put oils on.  They fell off and went away too and haven't come back either!  My guess is that we killed the virus and/or fungus and the others died and fell off too!

I'm still amazed! We still continue to use and love Be Young essential oils now known a Younifi. A few of my very favorites are Spice of Life, Breathe, Defense, Birch, Lemon, Peppermint, Lavender, PMS pack, Mars, Venus....just to name a few. ;)

Looks pretty interesting - I get them on my feet. Only thing is, you can't access the website without having an intermediary - know any way around that?

Mike and Risa said...

Wow Tammie, thanks for sharing this post! I don't think I ever told you, but when I was Curt's age I had a ton of warts as well, and I definitely remember that trip to the doctor to have at least a dozen "burned" off. It was very painful, most of them came right back, and they all left scars. My sister even had a plaster made with some kind of acid on her feet for warts when she was young and couldn't walk for days! I've used almost every product at the store and most natural methods I hear of with not much use, I'm excited to see that this works! Especially exciting is that most products seem to do more damage to the surrounding tissues than they do to the warts, so it's even more awesome to find a natural remedy that doesn't do that. You're amazing!

Tammie said...

Pica Maloria: I think I fixed that now. Let me know if you still have troubles.

Crystal said...

I have heard that they are a virus. I have also heard that because it is a virus there is a main wart and if you kill that one then they will all go away without extra treatments. We use essential oils for colds and things on a cotton ball next to our bed. Colds are so short lived at our house because we never take an OTC.

My daughter has a wart on her foot that we need to get rid of. Is the Guardian/lemongrass combo the way to go for all warts? How did you come up with your treatment plan?
thanks! -Carol

Tammie said...

Carol: If it were me and it was just one wart I would probably just give the lemongrass a try first. I know that's all my husband put on a wart he had. But his did take longer too. I was amazed how fast this worked. Dana Young the founder of Be Young has written an essential oils desk reference that he sells that had the info about the oils and warts in it.

Pica Maloria said...

It works now, thank you very much. :)

I was curious about the education aspect of Be Young because there is no information on their website about using their oils. Where is the desk reference available or how did you learn about using essential oils? -Carol

Courtney said...

CONGRATS On winning the Mountain Rose Recipe Contest!

Tammie said...

Carol: On the Be Young site if you go into Products and then Tools you will find the Desk Refernce there are also a couple of DVD's that have lots of good info on them. I have also been to a number of Dana Young's classes! He also does a weekly conference call that I usually listen to after the fact. He is a wealth of knowledge and if you ever get a chance to learn from him be sure to take it!

Great information! I'll be sure to make a note of it for future reference.

Shuffy said...

What about planters warts, have you tried it on those? I currently suffer from some on my little toe and they stink and I've even gone to several doctors for treatments that never worked. Thanks for your time, I am extremely interested.

Tammie said...

Shuffy: I'm not sure about planter warts but it wouldn't hurt anything to try. I will have to look into it. It seems I read once about soaking feet in Dr. Christopher's Calc-tea helps with planter warts. I will have to look into that too. In the meantime you could try googling Dr. Christopher, planter warts, and calc-tea and see what you come up with.

MamaBug said...

Tammie, I'm just starting to explore your blog and I'm really impressed. My sister-in-law has a healthy eating blog as well and I sent her the link to your blog.

I have heard good things about Be Young essential oils. I recently discovered doTerra essential oils and I love them!! I could totally tell a difference between the brand I was using before and doTerra. I have tried oregano oil on a plantar wart on the bottom of my foot, but I'm not very good at remembering to reapply, so it has improved but not gone away. I recently bought some Lemongrass and I'm totally excited to try your method and blend to see what happens.

Tammie said...

MamaBug: Let me know how it goes! I would love to know if you have the same dramatic results with the doTerra. I have tried some and really liked a few of their blends but for the most part just really trust Be Young's E.O.B.B.D (essential oils botanically and biochemically defined) process. I think they are the only ones in the U.S. who use those strict standards.

I also really have grown to trust the founder of the company. He's the real deal! He doesn't just talk about the how well oils work but he teaches the health principles I try to teach here on my blog. I believe it is the foundation of true health.

Anyway again let me know. I will be very excited to hear that their oils are as pure as they say they are. Because lots of people are using them! When looking into them I was a little hesitant because most of the heads of the company have marketing degrees. But as long as their standards always remain high it is probably a good thing.

Tamara said...


I am new to the site. I am LDS too and feeling the need to match my family's diet more to that of the word of wisdom. I am loving all you have to say. Thank you for taking the time.

I stumbled on this posting and have a question. My daughter has a fungus that she got on her toe after loosing a nail there (when the nail grew back it came with fungus)...and I can't get it to leave using the cream the Dr. suggested, and digging and cutting at it...seems to not be working well (as they suggested). I've done there suggestion for 8 months and I am done.

Do you have any suggestions?

Thank you,

Hi Tammie,

Just recently found your blog, love all the yummy recipes, can't wait to try a few.

I love essential oils too, so just had to add my two cents, hope you don't mind. I used Dana's oils when he was with ForeverGreen. I really learned a lot about essential oils from attending his boot camps. In fact, when I was first learning about the oils and at a Boot Camp, my toe became infected from a blister. Fellow oilers instructed me as to what to do, and after putting Oregano oil on my toe, and taking some in a capsule, the infection was gone within hours, I was sold!! I also got rid of a mole using Oregano oil, it took several months, but it eventually dried up and fell off.

Right before Dana left Forevergreen I started doing some research and looking into other oil companies. I found doTERRA in Jan of 09 and I love the company and their oils. When I used doTERRA's Oregano to get rid of a mole, it was gone within just a few weeks, not months. I love how pure their oils are, and I feel safe using them topically and internally because I know they are tested with Gas Chromatograpy and Mass Spectrometry for purity. I also feel assured they are safe knowing they are bottled and manufactured under strict conditions.

You should take the time to look at them again, and try the oils again. The owners and founders have years and years of experience with essential oils. I have met all of them personally and spent a lot of time with them and feel they have the utmost integrity. I am also a gut instinct kind of person, and when I found doTERRA I KNEW I had found something that would bless my life in so many ways, and I haven't been wrong.

Feel free to contact me if you want to "talk oils". Or you can check out my blog at http://www.WellnessEssentials.blogspot.com

Tamara: I have talked to people who have said that Lemongrass, Lemon, and Tea Tree work good for Rubbing on toenail fungus. I have wondered if the Guardian wouldn't work really well for that too.

Wellness Essentials said...

My mother-in-law had a fungus on her fingernail that would not go away, even with all the stuff the Dr. gave her. She had it for months. I gave her Melaleuca (Tea Tree) oil and it was completely gone within a week.

Tammie said...

Wellness Essentials: Thank you for your comments I love hearing others experiences. I'm glad you are enjoying DoTerra's oils. I have lots of friends that use them and I'm sure they are great. But personally I get really tired of the "my oils are better then yours thing" I'm willing to try and use any oil that works well. That is why I have come to trust Dana he left Forever Green for a reason maybe the reason that Oregano took weeks to work. ;)

I don't really want to go into a lot of details but I really don't like multilevel marketing for that reason and others. I joined Be Young because it was FREE I had no minimum purchase and they don't force me to sell it to all my friends! I still wish though that they could sell it without the multilevel. It's not about the money for me I just love sharing what I learn. I'm sure you can relate! Can't wait to look at your blog by the way!

Mostly I'm totally uncomfortable with how WELL DoTerra markets their product. When looking into it most of the owners were actually professional marketers and not in any sort of health field aside from Dr. Hill.

Alot of people seem to really love their oils and hey if they have a great product why not market it well. But I guess I just struggle when something becomes almost like a FAD. I don't do well will fads. Just ask me what I think of the Twilight books and movies! ;)

But in all honesty I was actually smelling some of DoTerra's oils today if they have something I need that Be Young doesn't sell and I get a sense that it's a good oil when I smell it I will for sure give it a try. I have always tried to be open minded that way.

Please I would love for you to share with me your knowledge of OILS but not the marketing! My goal is to help empower Mom's to heal their families not sell them products!

I love hearing your stories of health and healing! Please continue to share!

Wellness Essentials said...

Hi Tammie,
Thanks so much for your reply. I love your honesty and openness (is that a word?)

I had to laugh when I read your reply because I feel the same way you do about fads. (good thing doTERRA isn't a fad yet here in AZ).
When all the mormon mommies were all buying Suburbans a few years ago, I refused and made my husband buy a Van Conversion. And while I will admit to reading the Twilight series (before it was a fad) I refuse to participate in the whole Twilight Movie madness. So I totally understand where you are coming from.

I also agree with you on the MLM thing. When I was looking for new oils I was really hoping to find ones that weren't part of a network marketing company. I even asked why they had to sell them that way and not just retail them at a store. Their reply was that Network marketing was the best way to spread the word about the benefits of essential oils.

I think most of us who really love essential oils have no intention of building a business with it, it just sort of happens by accident because we love them so much, and can't help but share.

I feel like my knowledge where essential oils are concerned just barely scratches the surface of what they can do, but I do love to share the little bit I do know.

So glad I found your blog.

My son had a wart on his thumb, right on the inside of the joint, that was very painful to the touch, and it seemed like it was getting bigger all the time. I bought a fresh lemon and taped a cut quarter of in on his wart overnight. It was okay at first and "tingled" but then started to burn. I told him that was the juice working on the wart and he left it alone. Anyway we left it on until it (the lemon) was all drying up, then did it one more time. That was about all he could take, but after that it shrank instead of growing, finally disappeared and fell off, and he now has no scar. The process did hurt, however, so I will be glad to try this on his other warts -- he has about 10 total between his two hands alone.

Thanks so much for the info!


Tara said...

I just found your blog and am loving it! I tried accessing the Be Young site and it's asking me for sharing partner ID, do you have that or know how to get one? Thanks!

Tammie said...

Tara: You should be able to go to products and purchase whatever you want without needing to have a sharing partner ID. If you want to become a sharing partner you can click on enroll now and sign up. Let me know if you have other questions!

Pam said...

Hi, I wanted to check out the Be Young oils and it's asking me for a sharing partner i.d. or URL. I see you've addressed this question in a couple other posts, but I'm not having any results and I don't want to necessarily enroll in their program. I clicked on products, but it won't even let me see any products without that sharing partner info. Do you have any other suggestions? Thanks!

Tammie said...

Pam: It is just wanting to know who referred you. When you click on the link it usually has me as the person who referred you with my sharing partner ID etc. but some computers don't. If you will just use 4050 as the sharing partner ID it should let you look at all the products and purchase whatever you want by just being a customer buying through me. Hope that helps!

Pam said...

Tammie, thanks so much! I'm going to go try it.

Hi, I am very interested in buying these oils but i need a representative id to purchase it. what would you recommend I do? -Jaclyn

Tammie said...

Jaclyn: Sorry Be Young has changed their site and I haven't yet figured out how to make it do exactly what I want. But you should be able to click on the Be Young icon in my sidebar to your right>>>>>>>>just scroll up>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
then when it asks you for a Ref # just type in 4050 and it will show me as your sponsor and you should be able to shop as a customer and get whatever you need.

Vinuta Shetty: If it were me I would go ahead and order the oils and give them a try. If it asks you for a Rep # use 4050.

Anonymous said...

I tried this on Friday night, which was June 28th. I have a couple of warts on my knee. I ordered the oils and gave it a try. I followed your directions that you posted, now I have a huge burn on my knee that is pretty big. Is this supposed to happen? How should I treat this? Please respond asap. Thanks!

Tammie said...

Anonymous: Curt's knee was very hot the morning after sleeping with the oils and gauze on. It didn't leave a burn but would have I think if I had continued to leave it on. Even though I had been told to leave it on longer I was worried about it burning so at that point I took it off and didn't do anything else. I just left it alone. Let everything heal up and the warts just "fell" off within a few weeks.
