Among the various natural remedies for genital warts, the use of the milkweed plant for genital warts relief is a method that comes with many advantages. It is free of side effects, and can have fantastic results. And as an added bonus, it costs absolutely nothing.
The milkweeds are scientifically named Asclepias L., after the ancient Greek god of healing, due to their various medicinal uses since antiquity. They are a genus of herbaceous plants with more than 140 different species and can be found easily across the whole North America. Milkweed plant use for the treatment of minor wounds and genital warts relief is well documented throughout the centuries and has been acknowledged in Wikipedia and many scientific publications. As a matter of fact, it is the milky sap of the milkweeds which contains substances that will eventually soften and eradicate the warts from your private area.
To apply milkweed sap on your genital warts, you first need to locate a plant and cut a leaf or a stem off it. You can massage it directly onto your genital warts, however there is a danger that when undiluted, the white milky sap will be a bit too strong and may cause skin irritation. It is therefore a good idea to gather the milky sap in a small container and dilute it to about 10% to 20% with vitamin E oil, an aloe vera lotion or a mixture of both. After you are done mixing the ingredients, simply put a few drops at a time on your hands and gently massage your genital warts. Apply liberally, two to three times per day, and repeat on a daily basis until your warts disappear. Typically, application of milkweed plant should provide effective genital warts relief within two weeks of therapy.

They can be used instead, but results may not always be the same due to their varying composition. All in all however, you can definitely trust milkweed plant for genital warts relief and give it a go. Centuries of folk-medicinal use simply cannot be wrong.
