This is the main reason why some remedies may not work as efficiently the first time.

One last thing...The key to wart removal is ensuring the topical wart remedy penetrates down to its base. You accomplish this by keeping the paste in place as long as possible.

Wart remedies tend to contain some sort of acid and can be somewhat painful. If this is too bothersome, it is recommended to remove the paste for a short while.

Replace it as soon as you can if you really want the wart(s) to resolve. Meanwhile, ensure you contine to drink the cleansing and purifying tonics.

Here's a few recipes.

First Wart Remedy - Paste and Tonic

This is the strongest of the wart remedies and it can be painful. Use only if your warts are very stubborn and other remedies have not resolved the problem.

If the remedy is too painful, please read ahead for a milder recipe.


- One peeled garlic clove and crush finely. Use only its extracted oil. Garlic is a natural antibiotic and can help with the topical healing process.

- One aspirin and crush or use BC powder to skip the crushing. Aspirin is acidic and will help starve the wart from nutrients.

- Add a small amount of Apple Cider Vinegar. You can also use white vinegar but it's not as effective because it does not contain the same potency and volume of nutrients as ACV. ACV also assists with blood circulation enhancing the healing process.

- Add a small amount of vitamin E to replenish and help restore the skin where the wart resides.

- Add a small amount of baking soda to create the paste. You can eliminate this step as the aspirin will create the paste.

But, if it's too watery, it's best to use baking soda as more aspirin can make this paste much too acidic and painful.

- Mix all these ingredients together forming the paste

- Cleanse area. Place paste over the wart(s) and cover with a bandaid large enough to cover the entire wart

- You can do this throughout the day but, again, if it is too painful, use only at night or read ahead for a milder solution

Precautionary Information: Some comment how this wart remedy can cause a small crater where the wart existed. Some also claim there is slight discoloration of the skin surrounding the wart with this remedy. Use vitamin E during and after the wart falls off to help alleviate this problem.

Vitamin C is essential for the synthesis of collagen, a key structural protein for the restoration of the skin. It is also an anti-oxidant.

It is a natural enemy for warts when taken in high doses. It is a water soluble vitamin and therefore, it is not stored by the body. It needs to be replenished daily.

It can be taken orally in very high doses, or topically applied directly to warts as a paste.

Ascorbic acid powder may be the most beneficial form of Vitamin C but can cause pain, especially if the skin is broken.

Sodium ascorbate and calcium ascorbate are other non-acidic forms of vitamin C.

Both seem to cause less pain. If you can not locate these other forms of Vitamin C, then mix baking soda with ascorbic acid powder to neutralize its PH. Look for the fizz.
