6. Clove Oil

Clove oil is not only an antiviral but it is also an antibacterial, antifungal and anti-inflammatory that works like crazy when it comes to killing most viruses. One of the great things about clove oil is that it is also a natural anesthetic, which can help to ease the pain of burning off that wart.

 

7. Cajeput Oil

This oil is similar to Tea Tree oil and comes from the same family. Many users of essential oils use this to treat viral infections of all kinds.

 

8. Peppermint Oil

This is one of the most commonly used oils around and is very easy to find. Peppermint oil is effective against some viruses, including the herpes virus. If you decide to use peppermint oil, use it at the very first sign of the wart as it is most effective at that point.

 

9. Eucalyptus Oil

This is another very common oil that can be found almost everywhere. It’s not quite as powerful as tea tree oil but if you have some at home, and can’t be bothered to shop for something else, it is certainly worth using.

 

10. Manuka Oil

Native to New Zealand, Manuka oil comes from the leaves of Manuka trees. This is one of the most powerful antiviral and antibacterial compounds available. Honey made from Manuka trees is one of the strongest antibacterial agents around. This oil works best when used at the first sign of a wart as it prevents the virus from taking hold. Even used later it can be very effective as it stops the virus from reproducing, which will kill it over time.

The simplest way to use these oils is to mix 10 drops of your chosen oil into a teaspoon of jojoba or coconut oil and store in a bottle. Apply one or two drops of this mixture twice each day to the wart and cover with a bandage or cloth to force the oil to stay on the wart and to avoid infecting others. Continue for another 3 days after the wart has fallen off.

If you have sensitive skin, you can use lavender essential oil. This won’t work as quickly as the other oils listed above, but its gentle and safe for those with sensitive skin or for children.

 

If you are looking for the most powerful method of getting rid of wart, try this recipe:

  • 1 Tablespoon of jojoba oil
  • 4 Drops of lemongrass oil
  • 2 Drops of tea tree oil
  • 2 Drops of Manuka oil
  • 2 Drops of eucalyptus oil

Mix this in a container and apply two drops to the wart two or three times each day. Continue for another 3 days after the wart is gone to ensure that you have killed all the virus infected cells.

Once you have finished treatment, be sure to apply an oil that will nurse your skin back to good health. For the next 7 days after you have finished your treatment, mix one tablespoon of coconut oil with 6 drops of tea tree oil and 6 drops of lavender oil. Apply twice a day to the infected area.

Always be sure to give your body time when using essential oils. If your chosen oil shows no effects after two weeks, try changing oils or using a combination of oils.
