My son had been bothering me with this “thing” in his big toe for a while and to be honest I didn’t think it was a big deal so yeah I put him off and didn’t really take the time. fully investigate the matter. By the time I actually examined the “thing”, it was a huge plantar wart on the side of my 5 year old son’s big toe! Huge and disgusting!

My first thought was, “I hope I have some black walnut tincture in the cupboard.” Crazy you say? I was raised by herbalists, what else would you expect me to think? I didn’t have any on hand, but I knew where to get it, so I grabbed a bottle (for just $12.99) and started the treatment. I dropped the tincture onto a cotton ball until it was almost saturated, placed it on the wart, and then wrapped it with thin strips of athletic tape. Band-Aids didn’t work around that little toe, but this tape job did! We applied it every night and the bandage lasted all night and the next day. When it was time for bed we redid the bandage, soaked a new cotton ball in Black Walnut and reapplied the tape. We left unconformed and started using pre-wrap folded over the cotton ball and then secured with the athletic tape. Both methods worked fabulously. Even with all the wrapping, some of the dye stayed on your sheets and it stains, but twin sheets aren’t expensive so that didn’t bother me at all.

If you have gone to the doctor to have a wart frozen off, it withers and dies. This did just the opposite. She grew, and grew and grew, she looked like a mushroom! My husband wondered how this would turn out, and my son was a little nervous because he grew so tall, but we kept applying Black Walnut every night and watching this crazy stuff grow on his toe. Soon enough, the top of the mushroom broke free and flaked off. There was still a big wart with lots of seeds, so we kept applying Black Walnut. Then one day, after about 5 weeks of being diligent, most of the wart dried up and fell off. Left a huge crater on my son’s toe (which he thought was SO COOL). I reapplied Black Walnut that night and by morning the crater was gone, the skin had completely evened out. There were only a few seeds left on the site, so we continued with the procedure and the wart site got smaller and smaller with fewer and fewer seeds until the skin on it closed completely and it was completely complete. There is no evidence of any seeds or that it ever had a wart!

It was amazing to see my toe heal from the inside out. We gave the body the tools it needed to get rid of this viral infection and it did. No scars, no recurring warts. His body did exactly what it does best: heal itself. He just needed the right tools. And in this case, those tools were a bottle of black walnut tincture, cotton balls, and duct tape. No doctor visits, no insurance billing, just simple home remedies.

If I run into this again, I’d apply the tint morning and night to speed things up a bit, but it’s nice to know it works with just one good application a day! I love taking care of my family this way!
