Plantar warts can not only be ugly but also painful for your feet and so it’s always better to get rid of them as soon as you notice them.

Oil of oregano is an ancient Greek, herbal formulation that has become popular in the recent years because of its multiple medicinal benefits. Patients can expect relief in the case of plantar warts within 2 weeks of application of oil of oregano. When used for warts, oil of oregano is supposed to be diluted with coconut or sweet almond oil in the proportion of 1:8.

This solution can be applied to the affected skin region for approx. 5 times in day. Plantar warts have a very strong chance of recurrence and it is therefore recommendable to go for an option that can keep it under control for a long time.

Consumption of immunity boosting foods like mushrooms, yoghurt, garlic, and beef on a long-term basis can back the action of wild oregano oil. Hygiene plays its own essential role in backing the action of wild oregano oil. For instance, soaking feet in warm water (after plantar wart has been dissolved to a satisfactory level by oil of oregano) and rubbing it with pumice stone would prevent the build-up of dead skin layers in the affected area.
