Added/Modified on December 27, 2016

Warts are generally harmless. Warts are caused by a virus known as “Human Papillomavirus”. Formation of warts on the skin can result in embarrassment. Warts can spread from one part of the body to another. It is important for an individual suffering from this problem to avoid scratching the affected area.

A wart may occur in the form of a bump with a rough surface or it may be flat and smooth. Different types of herbal remedies are available to deal with the problem of warts.


Bloodroot is treated as one of the most effective and powerful remedies for warts. Bloodroot is also known as “Sanguinaria Officinalis”. This herb contains sanguinarine and chelerythrine and has powerful proteolytic enzymes. All these components can help in the treatment of warts.

Direct application of bloodroot paste on the affected area on every alternate day for a period of 1 month can completely cure the problem of warts. It is essential to cover the affected area with a bandage after the application of bloodroot paste in order to obtain best results.

Castor Oil

Castor oil can be directly applied on the warts on a daily basis. To obtain quick results, it is important to soak the affected area in warm water for 15 to 20 minutes before the application of castor oil. Further, castor oil should be applied only after the affected area has dried. This process can help in removing the dead skin protecting the wart.


Many herbalists recommend the use of dandelion milk in the treatment of warts. Application of dandelion milk after soaking the affected area in warm water can provide highly effective results.

Drying the affected area with the use of a towel (before the application of this herb) is essential. It is important to use this remedy till the time the warts are completely removed.


Goldenseal has antibiotic properties. Regular use of this herb can help in curing different forms of viral infections and thereby providing relief from the problem of genital warts. Goldenseal can be used both internally and externally.

Birch Bark

Birch bark contains 2 antiviral chemical compounds – betulinic acid and betulin. Besides these compounds, birch bark also contains salicylates. All these constituents can help in removing warts. An individual can apply birch bark (wet) directly on the affected area to obtain immediate relief.

Another option is to consume herbal tea containing birch bark. This tea can be easily prepared by boiling ground birch bark (1 tablespoon) in water for 10 minutes. Application of this tea on the affected area may also provide the desired results.

Herbal Oil

Lemon balm oil can also be applied on the warts for a period of 25 to 30 days. It is important to use this remedy on a daily basis for effective results. A few drops of tea tree oil can be applied 2 times in a day to treat plantar warts.
