Accidentally came upon this. I purchased castor oil for my hair. Each night I would rub castor oil over my palms and unto my hair. A few days later I noticed that a wart located on my palm had begun to dry up. I did a bit of research and indeed it turns out castor oil gets rid of them.
I had previously tried ACV which did the trick rather quickly but kept returning. The last few times it did very little, I suppose the wart was becoming immune to the ACV.
The wart is almost completely gone, it has been about two weeks since I first started rubbing castor oil.
As a young child at the age of eleven I always noticed these horrible looking things, the whole length of my left hand, I later found out they were warts, also caused by some sort of virus, I decided to use my mother's corn remover and it took a little bit longer then I expected but after a few months went by they were all gone. Now I am beginning another new search for a virus that doctors are playing games with// a couple of doctors kept telling me it was a mild infection and gave me antibiotics. Finally after many years off and on, I came very close to having a heart attack... The first thing hosp's. do when you go into ER is hook you up with Iv's and antibiotics, "Not good." I do mostly probiotics/ even though this virus will never end...
Needless to say, back on the subject of warts, here is a great web site I found for warts as well, rather surprising but castor oil is another good method.
I agree, Castor oil removed a wart from my sisters neck... It was a stubborn one and she tried lots of things to get rid of it. Only the Castor oil worked, without leaving a scar behind.
Warts are caused by viruses and need air and moisture to survive. Castor oil applied religiously will cut off both and the plantar wart will disappear in a matter of weeks. Much better than paying a Dermatologist to have the little buggers burned or frozen, only to be left with visible scars.
This worked for me as well! Happy to say that too. I never saw a wart completley dry up and fall off, more like I saw it just slowly dissappear into nothing. I didn't hear about the castor oil and baking soda until after I had been doing my current regimen. But I would give that a try too. I used straight, cold-pressed, castor oil, rubbed it into the wart (I was pretty liberal with it because it is also good for the skin) then sealed it with a coat of clear nail polish. I did this morning and night (taking off old nail polish by gently filing before each application). I started to see a change within a week. Just had to share!
Castor oil and baking soda worked on a wart I had had for 10 yrs!
As a teenager I had five "seed" warts on my right middle finger. They drove me nuts for a about three years until my mother suggested I use castor oil. I would soak small pieces of of a cotton ball in the castor and then place it on the wart held on with surgical tape. After about three weeks of this all of my warts had disolved. There was no scar and the surrounding skin was not effected. I hear that castor oil is also good for longer, thicker eye lashes.
Mixing Castor Oil with baking soda, enough to make it like gum, applied directly over the mole or wart will make them go away! Do this every evening with the intent that you are making it go away.
