5 Traditional Home Remedies for Skin Tags, Moles and Warts
Updated: Jan 27
One of the most frequent questions that I get asked as a holistic health practitioner, is how to get rid of moles, skin tags and warts. I have found in my practice that the same thing does not work for everyone. But, here are the most common ways that have been successful for most of my clients.
1. Apple Cider Vinegar.
This traditional remedy is successful for most people about 80% of the time. Here is what you do: Saturate a small gauze pad, piece of cotton ball, or tissue with raw apple cider vinegar. Apply on wart, skin tag or mole. Repeat two or three times a day for 2 weeks. If this remedy is going to work, you will notice that the unwanted growth starts to get red and then eventually it will darken and fall off. Many people report this is effective within just a couple of days.
2. Essential Oils.
The best choices of oils include: Oregano, Tea Tree/Melaleuca, Frankincense, Thyme,
Wild Orange, Lemon, Clove, Rosemary. The oils that I have seen with the best results
include Oregano and Frankincense. Just like the apple cider vinegar, apply these two or three times daily for a period of two weeks.
3. Caster Oil, Baking Soda and Lemon Oil Paste.
Similar to the other ideas, this mixture is applied a couple of times a day and continued for two weeks.
4. Lime or Lemon Juice.
This method is used when the problem is less chronic and is addressed when the skin issues first appear. If you have had the problem for some time, try another method first.
5. Turmeric Root Paste with Lime Juice.
Grate a portion of the fresh root, add fresh lime juice. Cook the mixture for 5 minutes. Apply to skin when it is not too warm to the touch. Reapply in 2-3 hours. Do this daily until it is gone.
