Milkweed Sap Dissolves Warts

Warts are growths under the skin that are annoying, but usually harmless. Most people have come into contact with warts at one time or another, and wish to get rid of them as quickly as possible! Good news, grandma has a cure – milkweed sap. Milkweed is a common plant with over 140 different species. These plants produce a “milky” sap when cut or wounded. By applying this sap to warts, you can dry up the wart and eventually cause it to fall off. It’s important to note that milkweed sap is a powerful astringent which contains latex, so make sure to do an allergy test before rubbing this into your skin!
