I recently had a wart appear overnight on the inside of my left "pointer" finger. It was sore to the touch, red around the outside edges and about the third a size of a dime.

I decided to try cinnamon bark oil applied neat on it every night before bed for a week. Luckily, this particular area on my body is NOT sensitive to the heat this oil produces. On the first application a small whitish area appeared in the center of the wart, and the skin seemed to toughen somewhat.

I'm glad to testify that after a week the wart is now completely healed and flat to the skin with no redness, soreness or irritation. IF you look with a magnifying glass you can tell where it was for the skin striations are still somewhat circular, but for all intent and purposes it is gone!

PS. On the last couple evenings I also put a drop of lemon oil on it for the smell of cinnamon was so strong, it was a bit difficult to fall asleep easily. Also, I might note, DO NOT attempt use of this hot oil neat on the neck or other tender skin areas -as this oil WILL burn!
