Young Living Lemon Essential Oil - Curing a Plantar's Wart

As you read in my last post, I have become a true believer in Young Living Essential Oils. Tonight I am telling you about their Lemon oil and the wonders it has done for me. 

You see, during the summer months while playing sand volleyball I got a plantar's wart (a wart on the bottom of the foot). Plantar's warts, like all warts are caused by HPV (Human Papillomavirus) and I'm sure I contracted it from the sand where we play barefoot volleyball. It's a little gross I  know, but it's really not a huge deal. It's the same a getting a canker sore in your mouth. 

The worst things about a plantar's wart is 1. The pain they cause and 2. How hard they are to get rid of. So, they are the same thing as a wart you would get on your hand, but due to the pressure of standing on your feet all the time a plantar's wart grows in, instead of out. They look like a hole in the bottom of your foot, as apposed to a bump.

And this is why they are so tricky. Since the wart grows in, it's really hard to get any medication to it. Over the counter medicated pads, such as Compound W, may work well for a wart on your hand, but when you put it on a plantar's wart the medication doesn't even touch it. (I won't even go into what the "medication" in Compound W is, but I can promise you, you don't want to put that on your body or into your blood stream!)

I am a runner. I have 3 young kids and NEVER sit down. I suffered with a plantar's wart for 6 months! It was terrible! 

After my amazing results with Young Living's Peppermint Oil treating my head aches I decided to see if there is an oil that could help my foot feel better. 

And you guessed it. Young Living's Lemon Oil is what I found. 

So, here's how it worked. I applied the lemon oil (undiluted) to the "hole" on the bottom of my foot once per day for two days. And you know what? 

The pain was gone! 

The "hole" (aka plantar's wart) in my foot was almost completely gone! 

The lemon oil gets down in to the hole and attacks the virus causing the wart. And it KILLS it! 

After the first 2 days of treating my foot and having such amazing results I continued treating it until it was gone for good. 

Young Living's Lemon Oil has been an amazing addition to our house. 

I've used it to 
*Clean and sanitize our yoga mats (a few drops in a spray bottle of water)
*Get rid of a blemish...Ah hmm...pimple (which disappeared over night!)
*And I've been rubbing it on my leg for a varicose vein (I so graciously received after my 3rd baby :( ) and shhh...I've been rubbing it on my upper thighs for cellulite, but let's pretend I never said that! 

Young Living's Lemon Essential Oil has endless possibilities! 

Here are a few more uses...

  1. Did you cover up your planters wart after putting the oil on it?

  2. Just socks. The oils obsorb into the skin pretty quick. I would wait for the oil to absorb for walking on the floor or cover it with a sock to avoid getting oil on the floor.

  8. What a great essential oil. I would add 3 or 4 drops to my water during a bout with a virus and it would completely help my sinuses unclog. It is also very refreshing and uplifting to breathe the scent.

  9. It could certainly be a helpful component in blends with other appropriate oils for this purpose. Also in the Melaluca family is Rosalina, or 'Lavender Tea Tree'. Helichrysum essential oil benefits

  10. There are some real Bozo's here. If you don't like what the owner of this pAGE HAS SAID THEN DON'T READ IT. I am trying the lemon oil on my grandson and hope it works. Going the dr. route does not sound fun. I am a firm believer in Young Living essential oils. Thanks for sharing.

  11. With the growing popularity of natural and holistic medicine, we hear often of the use of essential oil in massage, aromatherapy, and other calming treatments. Almond oil But to the practical American mind, it can be hard to imagine that fragrant oils can do much to heal legitimate injuries or illnesses
