Tea Tree Oil for Warts: Benefits, Uses, and Does It Work

Medically reviewed by Debra Rose Wilson, Ph.D., MSN, R.N., IBCLC, AHN-BC, CHT — By Corinne O'Keefe Osborn — Updated on April 3, 2018

Overview

Tea tree oil is well known for its strong smell and its antimicrobial properties. Often used in alternative medicine, tea tree oil has the power to kill bacteria and viruses. Tea tree oil may be an effective treatment for warts, which are caused by more than 100 different strains of the human papilloma virus (HPV).

Tea tree oil is derived from the leaves of the Australian tea tree. The aboriginal people of Australia have long used it to treat wounds and infections. Today, tea tree oil is found in many topical beauty products such as moisturizers, shampoos, and soaps.

Tea tree oil is commonly used to treat acne, athlete’s foot, and fungal infections. As a natural antiseptic, tea tree oil can often be found in hand soaps, cleansers, and antibacterial gels. It may even help to prevent the spread of viruses like influenza.

Warts are caused by viruses that spread from person to person. They are common in children and teenagers, but can occur at any age. Many people get warts on the hands, genitals, or feet (planter warts).

Warts are harmless, but they can be painful. Left untreated, warts can take up to two years to disappear. Fortunately, there are several ways to treat warts. Warts can be treated in the doctor’s office, with over-the-counter products, or with home remedies.

Antiviral

Tea tree oil has antiviral properties that have proven to be effective against common pathogens. A 2001 study found that a combination of tea tree oil and eucalyptus oil worked effectively against the herpes simplex virus.

A 2013 study found that tea tree oil could prevent the spread of influenza. While tests have not yet been conducted on tea tree oil’s effectiveness against HPV, it’s certainly a possibility.

Immune boosting

One potential treatment option for warts is to use your body’s immune system. One study of tea tree oil suggests that it activates the immune system’s white blood cells. This means that when applied to warts, tea tree oil may activate white blood cells to fight it.

Cleansing

Tea tree oil is an effective antimicrobial. It has been used for centuries to clean wounds and prevent infections. Warts on the hands and feet can spread easily from person to person, especially in communal spaces, such as gyms or locker rooms. A homemade cleanser containing tea tree oil may prevent you from spreading your warts to other people.

Tea tree oil can be used in several different ways.

Concentrated dose

Tea tree oil can be found in several different concentrations, including 5, 10, and 100 percent. If you’re going to make your own recipes, buy a 100-percent tea tree oil extract. If you want to dilute it, you can do so later.

For a highly concentrated dose of tea tree oil, soak a cotton ball with 3 to 4 drops. Hold the cotton ball on your wart for 5 to 10 minutes, repeat 2 to 3 times per day.

Alternatively, tape the cotton ball to your wart and let it sit overnight.

Australian combo

Consider mixing one-part tea tree oil with one-part eucalyptus oil. This combination has been proven effective against certain viruses. Apply the mixture to a cotton ball or gauze pad and secure it to your wart with a bandage. Use this concoction nightly until the wart disappears.

Oil rub

Try mixing one-part tea tree oil with one-part sandalwood oil. A recent study found that the topical application of sandalwood oil resolved warts in about 80 percent of cases. Rub this mixture on your wart twice daily for 12 weeks, or until the wart is gone.

Acid peel

One of the most commonly used wart treatment involves a mild acid called salicylic acid. It’s found in many over-the-counter acne creams. Try adding a few drops of tea tree oil to a salicylic acid acne cream. Apply the mixture to your wart once per day until the skin begins to peel away and the wart falls off.

Tea tree oil should never be ingested. Swallowing tea tree oil is dangerous and can lead to confusion and loss of muscle coordination.

Tea tree oil is a powerful product that causes allergic reactions in a small percentage of people. Conduct a small patch test on healthy skin before using it on your wart. Apply tea tree oil directly to your forearm and watch it for at least 24 hours. If you develop a rash or another skin irritation, discontinue use.

Most warts go away on their own with or without treatment. If your wart is painful or growing inward, however, you should consult a doctor. A dermatologist can perform an easy, in-office freezing procedure to remove your wart. If your wart doesn’t go away after six to eight weeks of home treatment, consult a doctor.

Warts are not dangerous, but they can be unsightly, annoying, and painful. You have many options when it comes to wart treatments. Tea tree oil is one potential treatment. If it isn’t working, however, considering buying a wart treatment product from your local drug store or consulting a dermatologist.

Tea Tree Oil, Plantar Warts, and More

About warts

Warts are raised bumps on the skin that are caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV). They can appear on nearly any part of the body.

Warts are very common, and most types are relatively harmless. Genital warts are the most serious and should be examined by a doctor right away.

Warts can cause discomfort and pain, and you may not like the way they look. They’re also contagious and can be spread to other parts of the body as well as to other people.

There are a number of home treatments you can try to remove warts, including treating warts with some essential oils. Essential oils need to be diluted before they touch the skin.

Neem oil comes from a tropical evergreen tree also known as Indian lilac. Neem oil has an ancient history as a folk remedy with many medicinal uses, including the treatment of warts and cold sores.

It’s commonly used in many beauty products and as a natural pesticide.

Studies have shown that neem oil possesses many antifungal and antiviral properties, which may help treat warts.

Neem oil is a very potent oil. Dilute it with a carrier oil like jojoba, which also helps to mask neem oil’s mustard-like odor.

Tea tree oil is extracted from the Australian Melaleuca alternifolia bush. It has been used for centuries to treat various medical conditions, to ward off insects, and for household cleaning.

Tea tree oil is found in many beauty products, soaps, and shampoos and can be purchased in varying strengths — some already diluted are ready for application.

In scientific studies, tea tree oil has been shown to exhibit antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties and to accelerate wound healing, properties that may help treat warts.

Diluted tea tree oil may be applied directly to the wart, up to two times per day. It may take a few months to see results with tea tree oil.

If you have the highly concentrated essential oil, dilute it in a carrier oil before using.

Tea tree oil has been linked to hormonal activity, so it should be used with caution by pregnant or breastfeeding women, or when using on children.

Never ingest tea tree oil.

The commonly used spice, cinnamon, is cut from the bark of the Cinnamomum zeylanicum tree. Cinnamon is high in antioxidant and antimicrobial compounds and has traditionally had a variety of therapeutic uses. These properties may make cinnamon oil helpful for treating warts.

Cinnamon oil is extremely potent and could irritate the skin if applied on its own. Blend a small amount of cinnamon oil with other essential oils or with a carrier oil before application.

Pregnant women should not use cinnamon oil. Cinnamon oil has a history of use as an emmenagogue (it increases menstrual flow).

Oregano essential oil comes from a flowering plant of the mint family. Though you may only know it as a popular herb in cooking, the oil of the oregano plant has an ancient history of use as an extremely powerful and versatile home remedy.

Oregano oil contains compounds that give it antifungal, antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and pain-killing properties. It also contains the compound carvacrol, which has been studied for its antiviral properties. These properties may make oregano oil helpful for treating warts.

Oregano essential oil is extremely concentrated and must be diluted with a carrier oil before use to avoid skin irritation. Start by using the diluted oil once a day to determine how your skin reacts to this potent oil.

Pregnant women should not use oregano oil.

Frankincense is an extremely popular essential oil used in aromatherapy and home remedies. It has an ancient history of use across many cultures as an important part of religious and traditional rituals.

It has been used as a medicinal remedy for a wide variety of ailments. It’s also been used as a household cleaner and a beauty product.

Frankincense has astringent, antimicrobial, and wound-healing properties that may help treat warts.

Place one or two drops of the oil mixed with one to six drops of carrier oil on a cotton ball, place the cotton ball on the wart, and then cover that with a bandage. Repeat two times per week until your wart is gone.

You may also add a few drops of diluted oil on a cold compress and apply to the area twice per day.

Do not use frankincense oil if you are pregnant or breastfeeding or if you are taking blood-thinning medications.

Clove oil is extracted from the dried flower bud of a tree native to Indonesia. When ground, it’s used as the common kitchen spice. Clove has an ancient history as a medicinal remedy for many ailments, including warts.

Clove oil is unique because it has antiseptic properties and is known to be numbing to the skin, making it a good choice for treating painful warts. It may also have some antiviral properties, which would make it more helpful for treating warts.

Diluted clove oil can be applied to the affected area once or twice per day.

Clove can cause abnormal bleeding and should not be used by anyone who has bleeding disorders or is on blood-thinning medication.

Cypress oil is pressed from the leaves and stems of the evergreen Cypress tree that’s cultivated in many parts of the world. It’s commonly used in many soaps and perfumes.

Cypress oil has long been prized for its use as a medicinal remedy in the treatment of wounds, acne, headaches, muscle pain, and respiratory infections.

There is also some evidence that it has antiviral properties for herpes simplex virus-1, which is one of the viruses that causes warts.

Cypress essential oil should be diluted with a carrier oil like jojoba before being applied to the skin. It can be used a few times per day. It should not be used by pregnant women.

All essential oils carry the risk of allergic reaction. Before using an essential oil on your skin, it’s recommended that you do a patch test.

Dilute the essential oil with a carrier oil. Place a small amount of the diluted essential oil on the inside of your forearm or wrist. Check the area after 24 hours for signs of an allergic reaction.

Allergic reactions can include:

  • skin irritation like redness, itchiness, rash, or hives
  • dizziness
  • shortness of breath or wheezing
  • rapid heartbeat
  • anaphylaxis

Pregnant and breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before using any essential oils. Consult your pediatrician before using any essential oils on or around children. Do not use essential oils on infants. Essential oils should not be used around people with asthma.

Some essential oils may be inappropriate for people taking certain prescription and OTC medications.

Essential oils can be toxic and should never be ingested. Consult a certified aromatherapist for more information.

Visit your doctor if your warts become more painful or if they spread to other parts of your body. A doctor can provide a number of in-office and prescription treatments that can remove warts quickly and efficiently.

Genital warts are the most serious kind of wart and should be checked by a doctor immediately.

Papillomas and warts: removal and prescriptions

Papillomas and warts: removal and recipes

Papillomas and warts on the skin are manifestations of a virus that has about two hundred variations; this virus lives in the body of about 70% of the world's population. Any panel of analyzes is available to a modern person to determine the exact type of virus and complex treatment of warts, especially if the problem has become large-scale. However, at home, you can get rid of a couple of random warts. The main "erasers" of this scourge from the skin are essential oils and plant extracts.

Essential oils of arborvitae, wormwood, marigolds, cinnamon leaves, cajeput, fir, pine, cloves, peppermint, eucalyptus, oregano (oregano), tea tree, thyme, lemon, clary sage, Roman chamomile have always helped to remove a wart at home , Santolina cypress, as well as lavender. CO2-extracts of calendula, celandine, echinacea and hawthorn also proved to be excellent as a remedy for removing papillomas. Turmeric, neem and ginger oils make excellent bases for diluting essential oils and formulating for wart removal.

All these natural products have one thing in common - their antiviral and disinfectant power, because the maximum possible amount of biologically active substances is concentrated in essential oils and CO2 extracts. That is why, in its pure form, these substances must be used carefully, pointwise, regularly to remove warts.

Before proceeding with the removal of a wart or papilloma, it is useful to consult a dermatologist, especially if the wart is visible on the body. An examination by a specialist and a complete history, supported by the results of a laboratory analysis, will clarify the cause of the papilloma and a further strategy for their eradication: liquid nitrogen, laser, alkali-based chemicals or alternative methods.
The easiest way to remove a fresh wart: the tissues do not have time to harden, therefore, in such simple cases, pure lemon or tea tree essential oil saves.

Wart Removal with Essential Oil

Wart removal begins with cleansing the skin and preparing the desired area for the cauterization procedure. To do this, wash your hands and wipe the skin with medical alcohol or isopropyl. After that, you can proceed directly to cauterization: with a cotton swab soaked in a miracle composition, we cauterize the growth for 10-20 seconds, without touching healthy tissues. After the wart is sealed with a plaster for the whole day, and at night it is removed if desired. The cauterizing procedure is carried out 3-4 times a day until the coarsened tissue is completely eliminated: usually the wart or papilloma simply disappears.
After the wart has dried up and fallen off, it is important to treat the fresh skin under it with a special mixture of lavender and tea tree, the recipe "Life without warts" can be found below. Such care prevents the return of the wart in this place: a complete local victory over the virus is guaranteed to you.
The effect of natural antiviral oils and extracts is based on their ability to destroy viruses and stimulate skin renewal. If the usual cosmetic care contains a tiny percentage of thuja essential oil, then a more powerful dose will be needed to burn the wart. However, mixtures of essential oils for wart removal are usually based on fatty oils: jojoba, almond, apricot kernel, as well as turmeric, ginger, and neem. At the same time, the antiviral and antioxidant effect of bioactive essential oils does not decrease at all.
A useful side effect of the use of essential oils in cosmetic care is the strengthening of local skin immunity - with a tendency to warts, this is an unkillable argument.

application specifics, performance and testimonials

At all times, people have strived to look perfect. However, for a perfect body, only clean skin and hair, well-groomed nails and excellent makeup are not enough. Various skin growths (papillomas) can develop a real inferiority complex, as well as cause a negative feeling in strangers. How to remove papillomas with tea tree oil?

Hateful formations

It is no secret that most people on our planet can find at least one skin formation on their bodies - papillomas. Few people know that warts are a viral disease, and these viruses can be in the human body for almost his entire life. However, with a significant decrease in immunity or with a weakened state of the body, skin growths can form on the body. As a rule, such formations are a benign tumor, and with proper treatment, warts can be permanently eliminated. Nowadays, there are many ways to cleanse the skin: cauterization of warts with a laser, cryotherapy, surgical removal, treatment of papillomas with tea tree oil or celandine. However, a person infected with HPV (human papillomavirus) should be on the alert, because at any time the neoplasm may appear again.

Let's talk about oil

Medicine and cosmetology do not stand still, so it has become much easier to remove papillomas from the skin. However, not all methods are safe and painless. One of the miraculous remedies for cleaning the skin from neoplasms is tea tree (essential oil from papillomas helps in 80% of cases).

Those people who have already tried the drug on themselves are simply delighted with the effect obtained, because in fact tea tree oil from papillomas helps very well. This is due to the fact that the tool contains a huge amount of terpenoids that destroy the shell of harmful viruses and microbes. In addition, tea oil has antiviral, antiseptic, anti-inflammatory and antifungal effects.

It is worth noting that all these miraculous properties are inherent only in natural tea tree oil. Before purchasing the drug, it is better to first familiarize yourself with its composition, because ineffective oil mixtures have become increasingly common on sale.

How to use the product?

Removal of papilloma with tea tree oil should be carried out with caution, because the drug is very strong and can cause significant damage to healthy skin. The product can be used both in pure form and in a diluted state. It is best to dilute the oil with aloe juice or an ordinary aqueous solution. When diluting an oil product, it is best to use equal proportions of the constituent components (observe the 50:50 ratio).

It should be noted that essential oils are not suitable for everyone. Many people experience various allergic reactions when using oil products, and tea tree oil is no exception. From papillomas, the drug should be used only in the absence of discomfort. Before starting treatment, the patient should do a trial test for an allergic reaction. To do this, a person needs to apply a small amount of essential oil to the surface of the skin and wait at least 30 minutes. The most suitable place for allergy testing is considered to be the crook of the wrist or elbow. After applying the product to the skin, a person may experience unpleasant and even painful sensations (burning, itching and redness of the epidermis). In such a situation, tea tree oil from papillomas should be used only in a diluted form. In the event that there are no unpleasant sensations, then an undiluted drug can be used.

Get rid of growths on the legs

Tea tree oil for papillomas on the skin of the legs can be used undiluted, because the skin of the feet is quite rough and difficult to damage. The procedure for removing growths is best done several times a day. A few drops of essential oil should be applied to the papilloma and let the medicine soak into the neoplasm. Due to its properties, the solution completely destroys the blood vessels in the skin growth. Without sufficient blood supply, the wart gradually dries up and falls off.

In addition to applying the oil solution directly to the wart, the patient can also be treated with special foot baths. How to carry out this procedure:

  • In a bowl of warm water, drop a certain amount (enough 10 - 15 drops) of essential oil and mix the resulting solution thoroughly.
  • Place both feet in the pelvis and soak them in medicinal water for 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Do not repeat the procedure more than 3 times a week. Complete removal of papillomas with tea tree oil can last from two to three weeks to six months or even more. The duration of treatment of neoplasms largely depends on their number and degree of germination in the skin.

Papillomas on the body - away!

If skin growths are found on other parts of the body (other than the feet), the use of pure essential oil is not recommended. To remove warts on the body, it is better to use an oil solution diluted with aloe vera and water. The amount of tea tree oil in the prepared preparation should not exceed 50%. The resulting oil solution, on the one hand, will destroy papillomas, and on the other hand, it will not be able to harm healthy skin. It is worth noting that the higher the concentration of the essential oil, the faster the healing process will take place.

Genital growths

Not everyone knows that using tea tree oil against papillomas on the genitals, you can get rid of many problems in your personal life. The skin in the intimate area is very sensitive, so the use of the drug in its pure form is not permissible. For the treatment of genital warts in women, it is better to use a gauze bandage or a cotton pad soaked in a dilute oil solution. The procedure for removing papillomas is best done at night. A tea tree oil tampon should be left on all night without removing. If a woman begins to experience discomfort during treatment, then the bandage should be removed immediately.

A more dilute oil solution should be used for this procedure. With proper treatment, papillomas in the intimate area can be completely removed after 30 days.

Night is the time for treatment

For a faster recovery, experts recommend treating not only during the day, but also at night. To remove papillomas at night, it is necessary to use a more gentle solution. To prepare it, mix 50% olive oil with 50% tea tree oil. The resulting solution must be soaked in a gauze bandage, and then applied to the accumulation of neoplasms. In order to prevent the gauze from shifting during sleep, it is best to fix it with a medical plaster. These dressings should be applied every night until the problem is resolved.

Side effects

Tea tree oil is an excellent remedy for various skin lesions. The drug is quite inexpensive and widely available, but due to its properties it is simply unique. Tea tree essential oil is harmless and completely natural, so the only unpleasant moment when using it can be itching, burning and redness of the skin. However, in order to remove negative sensations during application, the oil should be used in a diluted form.

Contraindications for use

Despite its miraculous properties, tea tree essential oil should not be used in the following cases:

  • Pregnant and lactating women should not use the drug, so as not to harm the baby.
  • Age up to 6 years. For children, it is better to choose a different way to get rid of papillomas.
  • People allergic to tea tree oil. In addition, you should not use this drug for those who have bronchial asthma, skin dermatitis or other allergic manifestations.
  • The use of oil is not recommended for significant damage to the skin or burns of 2 and 3 degrees.

Tea tree oil: use in papillomas. Results

With a decrease in immunity, a deterioration in the general condition of the body, or malaise, a person may develop skin growths. The appearance of neoplasms on human skin can cause an unpleasant and sometimes even disgusting feeling in others. Many citizens try to get rid of papillomas in a variety of ways. One of the effective and inexpensive remedies for getting rid of neoplasms is tea tree oil. From papillomas (reviews of women also speak of genital warts), the patient can completely get rid of in 2 to 4 months.
