Edgar Cayce’s Wart Remedy

There is a wealth of information in the Cayce readings

on skin care, ranging from suggestions for enhancing

the natural glow of a beautiful complexion to treating skin

problems as unsightly as warts and moles to as painful as

eczema and psoriasis.

This month I’d like to share Cayce’s

simple treatment plan for the former. A key ingredient in

the remedies we will discuss is castor oil, a healing element

discussed in superb detail last month by my co-editor,

Elaine Hruska. My hope is that all of our readers were

compelled by Elaine’s article to freshen their supply of castor

oil and baking soda (used to cleanse the skin after the

pack). This article can give you an additional use for this

amazing oil, should you or a family member suffer from


It Works!

I’ve studied the Cayce readings for over twenty-five

years now and met thousands of other people who have

done the same. Over the years I’ve heard success story after

success story on how the readings have proven effective

in alleviating health problems. If there is a single story

line that most often concludes with the words “It worked!”

it would be stories about Cayce’s simple cure for warts.

The most common suggestion by Cayce for the eradication

of warts is a mix of castor oil and baking soda.

Here’s the most detailed reading on that subject:

“(Q) How can [1179] get rid of her warts?

“(A) Apply a paste of baking soda with Castor Oil. Mix

together and apply of evenings. Just the proportions so it

makes almost a gum; not as dough but more as gum, see?

A pinch between the fingers with three to four drops in

the palm of the hand, and this worked together and then

placed on – bound on. It may make for irritation after the second or third application, but leave

it off for one evening and then apply

the next – and it will be disappearing!”


It would be nice if this solution

worked for all warts, but it seems from

the readings that there are some instances

where the warts require a different

approach. In this case, the situation

appears to be plantar warts, a painful

situation indeed! Here, Cayce suggests

mixing spirits of camphor with baking

soda. This is a remedy I applied myself

in college, and I am here to tell you personally

that “it works!”

“(Q) There are two growths that

appear to be warts on the ball of my left

foot; what is the best way to dissolve or

remove them?

“(A) Apply each evening a small

amount of baking soda wet thoroughly

with spirits of camphor, just sufficient

to cover same – and bind on so as to

keep over the night. This will cause

some little sharp pain, and a little soreness

for a few days, but will dissolve and

prevent any irritation following same;

for these are as but those eliminations

in system being thrown out in improper

directions.” (1101-3)

In some cases, the warts were unusually

stubborn, so Cayce provided a final


“As we find, they may be removed

by touching same with a twenty percent

(20%) solution of Hydrochloric Acid.

But do not pick at them as the discoloration

takes place, and as they begin

to deteriorate! Rather let them wear off

than pick at them, see? for such would

allow too great a chance for infection

by the irritating, and cause disturbance;

otherwise they will disappear. In touching

them with the Acid it is preferable to

use either a glass pestle (that is, a small

round piece of glass) or a broomstraw.”

(487-22) (Note: Hydrochloric acid is the

same as muriatic acid, used most commonly

in cleansing concrete and bricks.)

If you or a loved one are challenged

with skin blemishes such as warts, give

the Cayce remedies a try. You’ll be sold

on the simple wisdom of the readings
