Herbs & Natural Remedies:
Willow bark, birch bark (Betula spp.), and celandine (Chelidonium majus).
Willow bark and birch bark: plaster. Celandine: fresh juice or tea.
How it Works:
Willow bark and birch bark contain salicin, an acid that helps dissolve warts. Celandine contains irritant compounds that help dissolve warts.
Willow and birch bark: make a plaster using ½ teaspoon powdered bark and a little water. Place it on the wart. Cover with a bandage. Repeat daily. Celandine: if you have access to the fresh herb, apply its juice to the wart once or twice daily for a week. Otherwise, apply a strong tea made from the dried herb.
These herbs may be irritating to your skin-if you experience redness and irritation, rinse your skin and discontinue the herb.
Don't scratch or pick warts, or they may spread.
