Trish asked how to get rid of warts on hands.
There are many ideas on how to get rid of warts. We’ve had three suggestions for you to try.
1 Melaleuca Oil
Bev has used Melaleuca Oil. Melaleuca is the botanical name for tea tree oil and is available from Melaleuca : The Wellness Company www.melaleuca.com Their oil is very high quality and available in two strengths T36-C5 and added strength T40-C3
For isolated common warts, apply T36-C5 each morning and night faithfully for up to 3 weeks. If the wart is thick and dry, shave the excess away before applying T36-C5.
For body warts you could also bathe in a hot tub with 1oz of Sol-U-Mel and 1oz of Renew Bath Oil for 30 mins – these products contain Melaleuca oil. Some warts require the added strength of T40-C3 to disappear.
An alternate solution is to apply our Renew Intensive Skin Therapy (this is the product that we have so much success with eczema). This will be a slower process but just as effective.
Other brands of Tea Tree Oil available may not be very high quality or may be diluted so take care if you’re shopping around. I can give you Bev’s contact details if you want to contact her to buy Melaleuca Oil
2 Homeopathic remedy
Lesley, who is a Homeobotanical practitioner, recommends a homeopathic remedy – either Homeopathic Thuja 6c or Causticum 6c. Dosage will be on the bottle. For an even better result alternate these two remedies. Use one for 3 days and then the other for 3 days.
Jeanine says her mother used to swear by milkweed to cure her brother’s warts. What she means is the milky sap from a garden weed commonly known as milkweed. However there are many plants known as milkweed so you need to know which is the one that has a milky secretion that is good for curing warts.
Can anyone help us out with a photo or some more detail? If not then, Trish I suggest stick with the Melalauca Oil or the homeopathic remedy
