What is it?

  • Castor oil is popularly known for its anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties
  • It is one of the most effective natural remedies that a lot of people swear by.

How to use it?

  1. Cleanse the area where you have the wart.
  2. Simply put a few drops of castor oil on the wart area daily.
  3. It can take a week or more for the wart to be destroyed, depending on the type of wart.

Warts typically end up going away on their own. Although home remedies such as castor oil may help but they're not backed by science. You should discontinue using them if there's any allergic reaction.
