Malin : lutter contre les verrues avec les huiles essentielles !

Often multiple, warts are preferably found on the hands and under the soles of the feet.

Even if you take a few precautions such as wearing plastic flip flops around the pool, you rarely escape these unsightly growths.

Essential Oils are effective natural remedies to “kill the virus”. Find out how to use an anti-plantar wart essential oil in this article!

Why use essential oil for a plantar wart?

Plantar warts are skin growths caused by a viral infection, most commonly the human papillomavirus (HPV).

Essential oils offer a natural and effective approach to treating these warts non-invasively.

Tea tree essential oil is one of the most commonly used essential oils to treat plantar warts. It has antiviral and antiseptic properties that help fight the virus that causes warts.

It is recommended to apply a drop of anti-plantar wart essential oil directly to the plantar wart, using a safe method to avoid touching the surrounding skin, and then cover with a bandage to protect the area.

Cinnamon, with its antiviral and antifungal properties, can also be used in synergy with tea tree plantar wart essential oil for effective treatment of plantar warts. You can mix a few drops of cinnamon essential oil with tea tree essential oil and apply this synergy to the wart.

It is important to note that essential oils must be of organic quality to avoid introducing unwanted chemicals to the skin. Additionally, plantar warts can be particularly stubborn, especially in children.

If essential oil treatment does not show significant improvement after a few weeks, it is advisable to consult a healthcare professional for other treatment options, such as cryotherapy or electrocoagulation.

How to recognize them?

Warts look like small, benign swellings on the skin and are caused by a virus from the “papillomavirus” (HPV) family.

Their incubation period varies: a few weeks to a few months. Transmission is due to direct or indirect contact , for example with water or shoes, and increases when visiting swimming pools or sports fields.

Warts are contagious and it is advisable to treat them to prevent them from spreading! Common (located on the hands, knees or elbows) or plantar (on the soles of the feet or on the tops of the toes), warts are very common skin lesions .
