Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.

My daughter, age 7, had two huge warts on her pinky finger for a few months. I used Oregano oil (1 drop) diluted 50/50 twice daily and the wart would start to shrink but it kept coming back.

I am a nurse and frequently watch our doctors treat warts with acid and realized they often scrape/shave wart down before applying anything to it so they can get closer to the underlying virus. I used a razor blade to gently shave the surface (dead skin- no feeling) of the warts off 3 or 4 times over approx. one week period.

I used the above Oregano 50/50 twice daily during this time period and the warts literally vanished before my eyes! That was about 6 months ago. They have not returned. Beautiful, healthy skin. No evidence of the prior warts.
