The Easiest and Cheapest Natural Wart Treatment


Got a wart that needs to go? This Natural Wart Remedy is the cheapest one around and it really works! I tried several natural wart remedies, but this worked the best. Would YOU try this?

I’m always on the hunt for natural remedies to treat ear infections, sinus infections, headaches, and more.  I’m just not a fan of prescription meds, or even OTC medications, mainly since one of the things that contributed to my health issues (including candida) is overuse of meds and antibiotics in general.

So when warts surfaced in our home, I was not about to just run to the store to get an OTC cream – and I for sure wasn’t ready to pay $30 (how did it get that high?!) for a physician copay to have it removed from my son’s foot.

Warts are not a pleasant topic.

If you’ve ever had a wart, you know how hard it can be to get rid of it.

And it’s worse if you’ve got more than one wart. Once they start spreading they can really be tough to get rid of.

About 1 month ago I was helping my youngest get changed for bed. I don’t remember now what happened or why I noticed it, but I saw two small “somethings” on the sole of his foot, near the heel.

I wouldn’t have thought much of them, except for the fact that I remembered having a plantar’s wart when I was a young girl.

It was painful and it took a long time to get rid of it.

I think we went to the store and got an over-the-counter wart remover and I applied it over and over again.

And they’re gross.

Back to my son.

I took a closer look at his foot and scraped a little of the surface off of the skin.

It felt hard underneath, and I could see the tell-tale little brownish-black dots in the center of a pattern.

The dots are called wart seeds sometimes, but they really are little blood clots.


Anyway, he clearly had two of them.

Then, my son showed me a “callous” on his toe.


It was a big one. But was it really a callous?

I went to the internet and found a site with a great diagnostic information.

How To Tell the Difference Between a Callous and a Wart!

To tell the difference between a callous and a wart, you press on it:

  • If it hurts pushing straight down on it–it’s a callous.
  • If it hurts putting pressure on the sides (by squeezing it)–it’s a wart.

Sure enough. No pain pressing down, but when I squeezed it, my son wasn’t happy.

Now it was time to try to get rid of them.

Natural Treatments for Warts

We’d tried using oregano oil before on a wart on my husband’s finger.

It really worked great, but we weren’t consistent enough to get rid of it, so it’s still there.

One day we were on a road trip. I put the oregano oil on it and within 3 hours it went from being a raised wart to being level with the rest of his skin.

So I tried the oregano oil on my son’s foot for several days.

Again, I wasn’t consistent enough and no surprise–nothing happened.

I really wanted to be consistent with the oregano, but life was getting in the way.

So I hopped back on the internet and even asked my fans on my Facebook page for their ideas. (hop on over there if you haven’t already, K?)

Well, let me tell you, there were loads of ideas….

Plantar Wart Remedies

  • OTC topical treatments (not going there again)
  • super glue (doesn’t sounds very natural to me)
  • apple cider vinegar (I did this once for a wart on my hand. It ended up burning the surrounding skin and was super painful)
  • banana peel (the inside of it)
  • concoctions of all sorts
  • cutting them off (not an option. No way)
  • removal by a physician (I’d read over and over that the wart often comes back. This is the case for one of my son’s friends.)

and one that really caught my eye.


Yeppers. You all remember my post, Unbelievable Ear Infection Natural Treatment, right?

Well, at the time I tried that in my son’s ear (of course, after reading all over the internet that urine therapy has been used by many cultures for many years and there was even an international convention on it–so don’t think I’m just so crazy that I’ll try anything that I read on the internet–’cause I’m not), I was already trying this on my son’s warts.

But I wasn’t sure if it was going to take care of the more stubborn ones so I didn’t want to share it yet.

Well, now you can see what happened and judge for yourself:

How to Treat a Plantar Wart

  1. Have child urinate in a cup (we had a cup specially designated for this task to avoid unpleasant “glass confusion” :-).
  2. Cut small pieces of cotton that will cover the affected area.
  3. Soak cotton in urine and squeeze to remove excess.
  4. Place cotton piece on wart.
  5. Cut duct tape in appropriate shape and cover the wart and cotton completely.
  6. Repeat one time daily.

We did this for a few weeks. It would have gone faster if I’d remembered to change the cotton daily, but I forgot occasionally.

But every day we noticed an obvious change in the big wart.

And now, this is what his toe looks like:

Plantar Wart Gone

All gone except for some peeling skin.

And the other warts are gone as well.

Even while we were treating the first 3, one more showed up on the other foot (lovely) and that one is gone as well.

Now, I am thinking the oregano oil would have worked if I had been more diligent, but I would forget sometimes and frankly, urine is a lot cheaper.  But if you’re squeemish about the urine thing, then hop over to Native American Nutritionals and get some oregano oil. It’s great stuff and is anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. I’ve even heard of folks treating MRSA successfully with it. Now that’s something to have on hand, you know?

If you’re curious about  why I recommend Native American Nutritionals, you can read my who series on Which Essential Oils Company is Best.

But I tried the urine also because the testimonials were so emphatic.

One was even pretty hilarious.

A man said his whole family had been plagued by plantar warts–except for him.

He thought it was because he had the habit of urinating in the shower, so he thought his feet were getting a natural anti-wart treatment every day.

I don’t know, but interesting, huh?

I’m not sure why my son got all of these, but they did start when he was wearing footie PJs and during winter when he was wearing winter boots around a lot, and his feet would get all sweaty.

I never liked those footie sleepers because they made my feet sweaty and sweaty feet are like a breeding ground for warts.

No more footie sleepers for him.

And no more warts for him either.

Happy mom!

Think I’m Crazy?

Likely you think this is just gross and NUTS, right?

Well, check out this book – it’s got some very nice reviews.

I say – if you can get things done naturally and inexpensively then it’s worth looking at :).

    So heres the thing, I have had warts on my hands for several years, think maybe seven? I have tried everything and I was really desperate so I decided to try a combination of urine and garlic. it seems to be working as the warts are turning dark coloured and shrivelling up, but my concern is that today one started to bleed, I don’t want to go to the doctor because the freezing treatment didn’t work but I’m worried that this could be cancerous. Is the bleeding normal or is it a sign of cancer? Please let me know if you know anything or you find something out on the internet about this problem.

    • I have no idea but I know when I got down to the base w/ my warts as a child they bled. It was very painful and icky looking. I would call your doctor if I were you and talk to a nurse. Hope that helps.

  2. Alliep465 says:

    Just to be clear, seven years not seven warts!!!

    • Sure :). And of course, none of this constitutes medical advice. Just telling you what I would do.

      • Alliep465 says:

        Thank you for your post by the way, I would never have known to do this if you hadn’t posted this material. There is of course an ick! factor but I am hyper-vigilant with cleanliness around my treatment. I wouldn’t be doing this if I weren’t desperate to be rid of this scourge.

  3. tea tree oil
    clean feet before bed
    pure oil on wart, cover w/band aid
    7 nights
    lotsa love

    son was in 3rd grade, he is 26 (may 1st) & has never again had a wart

    • Nice – thanks!

    • I’ve been doing that with my almost 5 year old – she’s been plagued with warts since she was a toddler. The last time they spread so quickly, and on her face, we had the largest one on her hand injected with something (I don’t remember now) and within a week they all started to disappear!
      She now has one (over a year wart free) under her big toe. I’ve been treating it with tea tree oil for over a month, putting some on a cotton ball then covering with duct tape (bandaids don’t seem to stick) and it’s not going away. GRR!! We’ve done just duct tape as well but its really hard to keep on that area. Was the wart you treated on your son very big at the time? I’m wondering if I’m just dealing with a harder-to-kill-than-normal wart??

  4. I have had a very stubborn wart on my heel that bas resisted every freeze and otc remedies. I even cut it off and back it comes. I will try the tree tea oil, oregano oil, then, maybe the urine. thanx

  5. I suffered with those warts on my heel and arch for over 10 years. Then I put colloidal silver on them.. I made it myself with batteries and silver wire. Just a drop or two on a band-aide everyday and they were completely
    gone in 4 days.and they were very deep to start with.

  6. several years ago, i got a random plantar wart on my foot, which turned out to be a subtle hint from my body about candida and deeper troubles and blah blah blah, but anyways… i tried a few different home remedies, including vinegar, duct tape, tea tree oil, and some others, but nothing was working. the wart was really painful and making life difficult. just so happened, my sweetheart and i were on a business trip and had a chance to visit the ocean. after a walk along the beach and ankle deep in the water (i’m actually scared of the ocean!), we stopped at a hotel for the night before heading home. i got in the shower, and that plantar wart just washed right out of my skin and down the drain, never to bother me again. i swore if it ever happened again, i would get some “instant ocean” and soak in it! well, about four years later, i got two plantar warts on my foot, one underneath my toenail. blech! i soaked in a combination of apple cider vinegar and warm water with plenty of sea salt (just the kind i use for cooking) – every day for about 10-20 minutes – it took about a week to get it all cleaned up. i’m not all about urine, although i’m not against anyone else using it, because i do agree it should work; just saying, if you think that’s icky, i would highly recommend the sea salt water.

    • What a great story! So interesting that it was so quick the first time but took longer the 2nd. Thanks for the tip and hope to see you around again!

  7. 10+ on each foot came back after many applications of blister beetle extract – totally painful, don’t do it. After applying coconut oil as hand and foot lotion, just like you would for dry skin every day or two for a couple months.

    They just vanished with no pain, no peeling skin, no tape or bandaids, just a quick massage of coconut oil then clean socks. I wasn’t trying to treat the plantar warts, so I don’t have any data. Use I have a special container to avoid the dreaded ‘cup confusion.’

  8. I had warts on all my fingers and had tried everything, for months, to no avail! But a friend told me to try dandelions- so every day when I got home i picked one out of my front yard and dabbed some milk on each wart as i was walking into the house. Within a week ALL of them were gone and I haven’t had another- that was 5 years ago! Have you heard of or tried it? Just as cheap as urine. :)

  9. Lemon Peel removes warts. Tried and true. I removed 5 from my own hands when I was younger and just recently I removed one from my 3 yr olds toe. A small piece of peel to cover the spot each night while sleeping and it is gone within 2 or 3 weeks. You can speed it along by removing ‘seeds’ as they surface, but my 3yr old was not fond of this, so l had to skip this step with him. The acid in the peel opens the wart and the ‘seeds’ rise to the surface.

  10. Just had a few small plantars show up on my left heal. I’d been showering in a communal area for a few months and neglected to wear thongs (stupid). I’m trying Lugol’s iodine, standard strength. One or two applications per day directly onto the lesion with a cotton bud. Too early to know if it will work but after 24 hours the pain has gone. Lugol’s is one of the most under-rated remedies and very safe. I’m pretty confident that it will do the job.
