Plantar warts are warts that are usually found on the bottoms of the feet. They are not generally raised as are other warts. Sometimes they have small black specks in the center. Mosaic warts are clusters of plantars warts. While plantar warts are not a serious or dangerous health condition, they can be painful and unsightly. Because they are caused by a virus, then can be transmitted from one person to another. Children seem to be more susceptible to them than do adults. The same type of wart found on the hand is called a Palmer Wart. While there are over-the-counter products for warts, and they can be frozen off, there are many inexpensive natural remedies than work to heal plantar warts, including castor oil, coconut oil, essential oils, and even duct tape!
Oils to Cure Plantar Warts
Castor Oil or Extra Virgin Coconut Oil have both been found to be helpful to heal warts. Rub either oil into the wart once or twice a day until the warts are gone. Cinnamon Essential Oil and Oregano Essential Oil are both counted as anti-viral oils and some have found that they will heal plantars warts. These are strong oils and should be diluted before using topically. Castor oil and coconut oil, because of their own reputation for healing warts, would be the ideal carrier oils. Add 5 drops of cinnamon or oregano essential oil to 1 teaspoon of castor or coconut oil and rub a bit into the warts twice a day.
Duct Tape Method for Plantar Warts
To use duct tape for plantar warts, cut a small piece of duct tape slightly bigger than the size of the wart you are treating. Attach it to the wart and change the duct tape daily until the wart is completely gone.
Banana Peel Cure for Plantar Warts
