At many places, you take home some offering (a stone, branch or wart of a pine tree 松イボ) to rub on the warts till they are healed, or bring a special offering to have your prayer granted.
Other places offer sacred springs or wells to use the water.

In the Mikawa district, there had long been the statue of a Jizo called
yuzu no ki Jizoo 柚の木地蔵 Jizo of the Yuzu citron.

Once upon a time, there lived the village leader Fujisaemon 籐左衛門 who had a daughter of 9 years, called Ryuu. All of a sudden many warts appeared on the body of the young girl. Her mother was quite perplexed and suggested:
"Well, since this is a great shame, let us go to the Yuzu Jizo and pray for help."
The younger sister Shin also went with them and prayed:
"Please take away the warts from my older sister. I do not mind if you put them onto me!"

When the mother heared her pray like this, she scolded her:
"Oh dear, that is not a good thing to say. What will you do if you get all the warts?"

But after three days, all the warts had gone from the elder sister's body and began to show on the younger sister.
So mother took the younger sister again to visit Yuzu Jizo and prayed again with great intensity.
This time Jizo heared her soon and granted her prayer, taking the warts from the girl's body.

Since then the local people called the statue ibotori Jizo 疣取り地蔵.

Until to our day, people come here to pray and bring flower offerings to the Jizo.
