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?

Today I'm sharing with you a natural wart remedy that's surprising, but it really works.

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 for a natural wart remedy, 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 on natural ear infection remedies, 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 how well this natural wart remedy worked and judge for yourself:

Unbelievable Natural Wart Remedy

  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 Rocky Mountain Oils 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 what essential oils company I recommend, 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!

    Speak Your Mind


  1. Warts are a virus. My daughters both had multiple plantar warts. I went to a health food store and they recommended thuja pills. A natural remedy. I also bought the ointment. I didn’t feel like the ointment helped. But those little pills were awesome! Just let them dissolve under your tongue. It kills the virus. Way easier than most home remedies.

  2. strongly prefer using more of natural remedies

  3. Mama to 3 says:

    Warts are a sign of zinc deficiency!

  4. After numerous searches on options for getting rid of the seed wart on my thumb I tripped across your site. First, I fell for the most advertised OTC product – Compound W ……. didn’t work and made t REALLY sore.
    I started your urine process 4 days ago …… changed 3 times a day. This morning it’s 95% gone, no pain, no bump!! THANKS!!!

  5. After reading all the solutions I started to P in a bucket add bleach add oregano drink it soak my foot in it and then pray to three times a day

  6. I’ve had a large one on the ball of my foot since in my twenties and I’m 64 now. Some of these ideas are intriguing and I will try some of them. Here’s a suggestion: my husband had the cluster kind of planters warts and all he did was soak his feet in Epsom salt a few times. You could actually see the black seeds floating in the pan. The warts just cleared up. Sadly, mine is different and much deeper than his were. If you have the cluster kind, try the Epsom salt. I thought it was amazing how fast they went away. Also, I believe the water was as hot as he could stand.

  7. Teresa Cooper says:

    I have what is commonly referred to as a seed wart on my right forearm. Grainy to touch. Need idea on how to remove it.

  8. Experienced my very first wart last month. I managed to get it off yesterday, I don’t necessarily know what killed it but I must say that I’ve tried a combination of things. First I decided to try molasses, it dried up my skin but I didn’t necessarily see any results from it. Through my impatience I decided that I would cut it, which I did. And it cut very easily and without pain because of the molasses drying my skin. After I’ve read about a study done on children who had warts, and that using garlic was very effective. I mashed fresh garlic into a paste and applied it to my wart. It stung so much! I wasn’t necessarily consistent with it, and I took it of at night because of how much it stung. But I was definitely seeing positive results. The wart was getting darker. I would then again cut part of my skin, and apply the paste.. again with an intense burn. (expect that it might burn after an hour or more). And within in a week of scraping off a layer of wart skin and applying the paste it turned completely black, eventually I could just scrape all of it off. Not a wart expert but I think applying molasses and cutting of a big part of the wart really sped up my process.

  9. I had multiple warts on one of my fingers for years, I tried everything had a Dr. cut off, it grew back, had it burned off every 2 weeks for 2 years, so so painful and it always came back. I tried the duct tape, tea tree oil, apple cider vinegar and various other internet-inspired concoctions and nothing ever worked. I was desperate as I was pregnant and terrified that I would give warts to my new baby. My doctor said it was not possible, as newborns have better immune systems than that, that their bodies resists things like warts. Still, I was embarrassed about it and wore a bandaid around my one finger for absolute years and years, ugh!
    My mother went to England to visit relatives and an Aunt mentioned to her that her grandson had warts on his foot and she was buying him a homeopathic remedy. My mother knew of my struggle so she asked about it immediately and was informed it was called Thuja Occidentalis. The Aunt said she had given it to her kids and grandkids whenever one of them got a wart and it always worked and was safe for kids.
    I immediately went out and bought some, I think I took 3 little pills two times a day or 2 pills three times a day, something like that. I saw some little difference within a week or so, but it took around 3 months for them all to disappear completely. Occasionally I’ll feel something coming back in that spot and I’ll take the Thuja again for a week or two and it will go away. So far, they have never come back fully, I’m just super paranoid and alert to the possibility.
    I just wanted to share this with everyone, although I am not sure what everyone’s opinion of Homeopathy is vs. Natural Remedies. But this was the only thing that ever, ever worked for me. I have given this advise to 2 other people and they have also had success in getting rid of warts with this homeopathic remedy.

    FOR YOUR REFERENCE: Thuja occidentalis is an evergreen tree, native to North American and Canadian wetlands. … It is almost as though the tree itself is trying to conceal its ugly side. The homeopathic remedy is prepared from the fresh twigs and leaves. The tree contains an essential oil which is used for the treatment of wart infections.

    • I had warts on my hands for years when I was young. At one point, having 11 on my combined two hands. MDs tried all the tactics and some worked: had a few burned off with freezing, some removed with an acid and others with electric needles. Most of remedies worked but I’m left with the scars. Amazingly as I grew to an adult, all the remaining warts just faded away on their own, with no action needed. Weird. I’ve had no warts now for over 40 years…..

  10. I had a couple of plantar warts and used hot water with a cap full of bleach in it and soaked my foot each night for about 10/15 minutes and in about a week they were going away. Have told a few people of it and it worked for them also.

    • Yup. I had a huge one on the ball of one foot as a teenager. After one treatment at the doctor’s that involved cutting and acid I got faithful about soaking my foot once a day in a dilute solution of Clorox and water. It took a while but eventually the large wart and multiple smaller warts surrounding it all cleared up. I always feel bad when I hear about folks undergoing painful surgeries for this.

  11. Thanks for the post! It made me laugh, which a mum of 4 (aged 6 and under) can always do with! I’ll definitely try this.

    My (now 5) 4 year old son had one wart just like yhe one bulky one in your picture. The doctor recommended an ointment and I accidentally spread it further than the necessary area. It was so painful for him, and of course I felt so bad. I’m never using that stuff again!

  12. I have read the comments and have to share my own experience. I have had plantars warts on my foot for years. Here is what didn’t work:
    – The kits that freeze warts. Did not produce any results.
    – Surgical removal. Costly and took care of the issue for a time, but the wart still returned.
    – Duct tape. It wouldn’t stay on with any ointments.

    I finally decided to try Oregano Oil. I have to say it worked though It took a long time for the area to clear – maybe 3 and a half months. Patience is key. I also had to apply the oil continuously, almost 3 times a day. The area is callous as a result, but it is better than the wart. The area is also very dry and the sole of my foot is flakey. But the area where the wart was is pink and much like a healed scar. I still inspect my foot regularly to make sure the wart hasn’t returned, but after years this is the most effective and economical solution there was.

  13. I had a very large, painful planters wort on the bottom of my big toe many years ago. I was able to actually pop it once, but it came back.

    Thankfully, my brother-in-law had the solution. He brought me a pussy willow plant and showed me how to get the milk out of it. We out the milk on the wort, no covering or bandage, one or two times only and the wort simply disappeared.

    Simple, easy and it never came back.

  14. I tend to opt for duct tape when I get plantar warts. Thanks for these suggestions. I’m gonna give some of them a try to see if they clear up faster.

  15. I haf a huge one on my thumb, and was trying EVERYTHING to get rid of it…..nothing was working…the only this I fid not try was “cutting it off” …..and I was like NO WAY….but I said ya know I can tolerate a little cut but not the whole thing…..I took a knife closed my eyes looked away and… SLICE! Right down the middle! Not too deep but just enough to get to the bottom of the wart, a tiny bit of blood was there but not enough to freak out about…..the next two days it was GONE! My body recognized I had a “cut” and went to heal it and BAM I guess it took care of the wart too!!!! I had NO IDEA that would work, but IT WAS LIKE MAGIC…Especially after having it for years!!!

    • So glad it’s gone!!! Yuck!

    • Shelley Adman says:

      Wow cutting a wart yourself is totally dangerous for several reasons.Mostly the knife was definitely not sterile nor skin around area.Also you could have caused sepsis which is blood infection.U could have missed and cut artery or vein.I am shocked when people say they have for years.Please seek medical assistance.Foot care NURSE or Medical Doctor

  16. My girl got a wart on her thumb in the pencil holding area. We put Tea Tree Oil on a band-aid and stuck it on the spot. The wart died soon after. A matter of days. No cutting required. Painless. Smells better than Urine, especially in a school setting. Can’t understand why, in all these posts, Tea Tree Oil was never mentioned for wart removal. Now you know!

    • I saw a doctor for a plantar wart on a small toe. She scraped and did three expensive and painful laser treatments. Not only did they not work,but soon I had three other smaller warts on that same little toe. I tried so many things for two years but what finally worked was wrapping it in duct tape after placing baking soda on the warts . I read that a virus cannot survive in an alkaline and I was duct tape cuts off the oxygen.
