Can essential oils treat HPV?

Dear Robert,
Greetings! Because you are an expert with regards to using essential oils I was wondering if you could offer some advice or direct to me to research with regards to using essential oils for an advanced case of HPV (Human papillomavirus). I appreciate any information that you could offer and thank you in advance for your time.
Be well,

Hi Rachel,
I could only find one relevant piece of research, which talks about tea tree oil successfully treating warts caused by HPV. I hope this may be of some help!

    I am always impressed with the varied viral and bacterial infections with which Tea Tree essential oil can assist. Is it the Terpenin 4-ol content that is the effective chemical constituent?

    Cynthia – in a word, yes it is. The T-4-ol is known to be active against H1N1 influenza and HSV-1, so certainly an important constituent, as it is in bacterial infections too. At the same time, there are invariably synergistic effects between constituents, so sometimes the whole essential oil is more active that the major constituent, and tea tree oil does contain other important antimicrobial constituents.

    Hi Robert
    This is dated April 2011, I doubt this trial is concluded but East Indian Sandalwood may be worth a look. From the trial design it looks like they should be concluding this year.
