Frankincense Oil: Using frankincense for warts January 09 2014

Warts are hard skin growths that most typically occur on the hands and feet, though they 
can be found virtually anywhere else on the body, from inside the mouth and even the 
eyelids. Warts are caused by the human pappilomavirus (HPV). There are over 100 strains 
of this virus, and each strain can cause a slightly different kind of wart. 
Warts are considered to be contagious, especially when scratched or festered with. They 
typically disappear on their own over time, but it could take years to do so. Depending on 
the location and size, you will most likely want (or need) to get rid of them sooner, and 
frankincense essential oil provides a safe alternative to painful burning, freezing, and over-
the counter wart removal kits, particularly for children. 
Frankincense oil (boswellia serrata) has stimulating effects on various important bodily 
glands, including the brain, hypothalamus, thyroid, and pituitary glands. These glands 
all work in sync to support a healthy immune system. Because warts reflect a “glitch” in 
immune system function, frankincense is a natural means of boosting overall immune 
health and strength. It helps the body fight the physical symptom of the HPV virus, and 
additionally prevents pesky warts from growing back. 
How to treat warts with frankincense oil:Days Island 100% Pure Frankincense Oil
Apply one drop of frankincense oil directly to the wart. 
Cover with a bandage that provides the ability to absorb and hold the frankincense 
against the wart.
Repeat this process in the morning and at bedtime until the wart disappears (be diligent 
and patient, as this may take a few weeks!)
Continue application (without a bandage) for approximately 2 weeks after wart removal to 
maintain clear skin and prevent regrowth.
