Clove Bud Oil: Using clove bud oil for warts March 20 2014
Common warts are growths on the skin that are caused by a virus (the human papillomavirus). Warts are 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 clove bud essential oil provides a safe alternative to painful burning, freezing, and over-the counter wart removal kits, particularly for children.
Clove bud oil has potent anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiviral, and antiseptic properties, making it a great choice for the concentrated treatment against warts.
How to treat warts with clove bud oil:
Apply one drop of clove bud oil directly to the wart.
Cover with a bandage that provides the ability to absorb and hold the clove bud oil 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.
