Summertime can breed warts. The wart virus loves warm, moist places like small cuts or scratches on your hands or feet. Once the virus finds a nice warm place on the skin, a wart begins to develop. Warts can grow for many months — sometimes a year or more — before they are big enough to see.

Children are particularly susceptible to warts. I recently treated a wart on my son’s elbow successfully with this DIY essential oil blend. It was very satisfying to see it turn black over night, scab and heal in a matter of days!

I’ve also had success treating warts by supplementing with desiccated liver. My older son had one on his toe. I researched and thought there was something in his immune system that was not fighting off this virus. I changed nothing else for him but started giving him two desiccated liver tablets per day. The warts started disappearing and went away in two weeks.

Here is the blend I used:

Homemade Wart Removal Blend:

  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 drop oregano essential oil
  • 2 drops frankincense essential oil
  • 2 drops lemon essential oil
  • 1 cotton ball
  • 1 bandage


  • In a small dish, combine the apple cider vinegar, oregano essential oil and frankincense.
  • Blend well.
  • Add the lemon oil. blend again.
  • After cleansing the area, use a clean cotton ball to dip into the mixture.
    Lightly soak the cotton ball, then apply it to the area (be careful not to get on skin around the wart)
  • Cover with a large bandage.
  • Apply this remedy twice a day, morning and night (you can sleep with it), until the wart is completely removed.

I use Young Living essential oils for all my concoctions. You can purchase them here.
