Warts are becoming more and more common.  If you have never seen a wart consider yourself lucky, most of us have had one or know someone that has.  They are hard rough lumps growing on the skin, caused by infection with certain viruses and occurring typically on the hands or feet.  If you have one, you want it GONE as quickly as possible.  I have a close friend that has some large ones on her hands, so I have been doing a little wart research.  Here are a few great natural wart treatments.

Essential Oils

Oils

Tea Tree Oil and Lemon Oil are most commonly used.

Use Lemon Oil first, apply 2 drops directly on wart and cover w/ a band-aid before bed (leave on for 12 hours).  Do this every day for a couple of weeks.

If you see no improvement, move on to Tea Tree Oil and follow the instructions above.

Tonic Remedy

Apple Cider Vinegar has amazing healing properties.

Take a cotton ball and tear off a small piece (that would cover the wart), soak it in vinegar, and then place directly on wart.  Cover w/ duct tape or brown moving tape (over cotton ball).  Leave on for 12 hours.

Some people had to do this for months before the larger warts disappeared.  The key is consistency and determination.  Do not give up!

Homeopathic Remedy

Thuja 30 C- mainly used for acute case, not chronic.

There are many herbs and vitamins that can be supplemented to support the immune system.  I read that having a deficiency in potassium can cause warts, digestion issues, low vitamin D and C, etc.  The wart is an outward manifestation that something on the inside is off.  I would clean up the diet, eat less sugar and processed foods, and eat more cultured food regularly (or include probiotics).
