Banana Peels Can Cure Warts

From what I have read, applying banana peels on warts really works to remove them. Before you go all psshh!, read on my friend.

Warts (and some moles) are usually a sign of potassium deficiency, and the idea to infuse a potassium-rich food directly over the wart does have some merit. Banana peels are high in potassium.

Which brings me back to this simple, yet effective remedy.

You’ll need: One banana peel. You don’t have to buy bunches of bananas for this, just one may be enough as long as you keep it stored in the fridge.

How to do it: Cut a section of the banana peel, large enough to cover your wart. (Keep the unused portion in the fridge now. ) Depending on where your wart is located, you’ll have to find the most suitable method to keep the cut peel section in place as you go about your day. The inner portion of the banana peel (the damp, fibrous part) should be placed against the wart.

If it’s on your toe, putting a small bandage and wearing socks over it is a good idea. If it’s on another part of your body and is small enough, you can do this by simply putting a band-aid or some tape over the banana peel to hold it in place.

Be consistent and replace the banana peel section with a fresh one twice daily at least. The wart should shrink in size and fall off painlessly over time.

This will take anywhere between a few days to a few weeks to happen so be patient.

  3. you did not say what side of banana peel should sit on the wart or boil…is it the outer or the inner side of the banana peel?

  5. There is another rememdy for boils. that is the skin of an egg. crack open an egg & remove the skin very carefully & place it on the boil. Will not come off until the boil has bused or came to an head. It is a little painful but helps.

  6. Banana peels are EXCELLENT to prevent bruises. Take a slice of peel, bigger than the area you just bumped, place the pithy side on the bumped area. No bruise the next day.

  7. i believe that banana peel can cure warts because we made a study about it the banana peel and it really can cure warts……..its so amazing….

  8. Yea it does work. But you have to locate the “mother wart”. this is usually the biggest and would have been the first to appear. Put the banana skin on this one and it will die. Once the mother wart is dead the others will die too. This worked on my little boys.
