Natural Remedies for Plantar Warts

Print Friendly

Are you looking for natural remedies for plantar warts? Have you tried over the counter salicylic acid peels, freezing at the doctor’s office, the duct tape method, garlic, and other methods? Plantar warts are stubborn little guys – they may last from up to a couple of months to 2 years. They also make it very uncomfortable to walk if they are on the bottom of your feet.

I have caught a plantar wart virus in the gym I think, and it has been there for a few months before I got tired of it.  I did try the duct tape method, acid peel (which made my foot a mess) and even tried rubbing the yellow juice of  the celandine herb, which grows in my backyard. I also tried really watching my diet and any kind of sugar intake. Nothing really helped. The worst part of having the warts on your foot is that it is hard to walk long distances in any kind of shoes, it hurts very badly after a while. So I avoided walking for that reason – biking was ok though, since you do not put pressure on your foot that much.

Then I remembered when my 5 year old daughter got a plantar wart a couple of years ago, our naturopath at the time gave her homeopathic thuja pellets. They worked like a charm – the wart fell of within a few days. I did not find any pellets in my herb cabinet, so I decided to get the thuja herb extract instead. I took about 30 drops 3 times per day, and within 1 week the plantar wart diminished in size and within 4 weeks went away. At first when I started taking the extract, during the night the foot area near the wart was painful and itchy, I guess because it started working?

So from now on, thuja herbal tintcure will be another remedy in my natural medicine cabinet!

Update (March 2014): I have found a topical natural treatment for plantar warts as well. My daughter had one on the inside of her thumb. I did not want to give her thuja extract as it has alcohol in it, so decided to try something else after reading about on the net (don’t remember where). Basically, I picked up lemon essential oil at the health food store, and put a couple of drops of it on the wart and covered with a band-aid, just before she went to bed. We did this maybe 3-4 times, and by 4th time the wart turned black, and within a couple of weeks fell off.

Don’t know where to buy herbal thuja extract and lemon essential oil? I love buying my supplements and herbal tinctures on iherb.com.

I would love it if you share what you have found successful for getting rid of plantar warts?

    I’ll have to add the thuja herb extract to my list of remedies to try. I have a stubborn wart on my knuckles and I’ve tried a ton of remedies with minimal success. If apple cider vinegar doesn’t work too, I’ll have to try this next. Thanks for the great tip!
