Warts are unsightly and sometimes painful. If you have developed these small skin growths, you can use these grandmotherly remedies to make them disappear. Truc Mania presents 5 recipes to act naturally and eliminate a wart quickly.
1- CELERY, AN ANCESTRAL WART HERB
Celery has been known for a very long time for its effectiveness in the treatment of warts. This plant is not sold in garden centers for the good reason that it is considered a weed. It is recognizable thanks to its swallow-shaped leaves and its bright yellow flowers.
THE MAGIC ANTI-WRINKLE PLANT ?
For a long time considered as a magic plant, chelidonia has lost its credentials among dermatologists. However, before considering a radical treatment, whether physical or chemical, it is really worth testing its effectiveness on your wart. Its action is due to a juice contained in its stem and containing an alkaloid, the coptisine. By preventing the multiplication of cells, this substance with antimitotic properties limits the wart in a space and weakens it.
HOW TO USE THE CHÉLIDOINE?
To treat a wart with chelidonia, simply cut the stem of the plant in half and apply the juice directly on it. It is advisable to repeat the operation twice a day until it disappears completely. The disadvantage of this remedy is the unsightly yellowish color it leaves on the skin. You can cover the area with a bandage to camouflage this aspect of the treatment.
Be careful, the chelidonia is corrosive and toxic, it is thus disadvised to use it in the treatment of warts in the child. On the other hand, the adults can possibly make dry sheets to consume them in infusion or to soak compresses of it to apply to the wart.
2- LEMON AND ITS ANTISEPTIC ACTION
Lemon has antiseptic virtues and can be a precious help to get rid of a wart. There is also a particularly effective recipe with lemon and white vinegar well known to grandmothers to treat warts, especially in winter, when the chelidonia has disappeared from the ditches.
PREPARATION OF THE LEMON REMEDY
To prepare your remedy, remove the yellow layer of the lemon peel, taking as little of the white as possible, so as to keep only the effective part. Then dip these peels in wine vinegar and reserve the preparation in an airtight jar. Close the jar tightly and leave to macerate for at least a week.
Once the lemon peel has become soft and pliable, take it with tweezers and cut small pieces with scissors to the size of the wart. Do not cut larger pieces, as they will burn the skin around it.
APPLICATION OF LEMON PEEL ON THE WART
Take a piece of cotton and soak it with the vinegar from the maceration, it will serve as a support to apply the macerated lemon peel on the wart. The vinegar will prevent the lemon from drying out, and this is important, as you will need to keep the bandage on overnight for maximum effectiveness.
Make sure that the lemon is only in contact with the wart and hold it with the compress and plaster. If you feel a tingling sensation, this is normal and is also a sign that the lemon is working. Remove the plaster the next morning in the morning and repeat the application the following days if the wart is recalcitrant.
In principle, it is necessary to repeat between 2 and 5 times to make the wart disappear completely. You can keep the same preparation and reuse it as many times as necessary, as long as you keep it in a tightly closed container.
