- 1/2 tsp. apple cider vinegar
- 1 drop oregano essential oil
- 2 drops frankincense essential oil
- 2 drops lemon essential oil
- 1/2 tsp. coconut oil
- Cotton ball
- To make the wart treatment, add the apple cider vinegar and oregano and frankincense oils to a container or bowl.
- Mix these ingredients together, then add the lemon oil.
- Mix the combination again before adding the coconut oil. This will help bind everything together while giving it a thicker consistency that prevents it from running off the area of skin it's being applied to.
- Dip the cotton ball into the mixture. Don't oversaturate it, but apply enough of the solution to make the cotton ball damp.
- Press the cotton ball over the wart firmly and secure in place with a bandage. Make sure it doesn't wiggle around. It's very important for it to remain in contact with the skin.
- Repeat this process twice a day until the wart is gone.
