12 Natural Remedies for Skin Moles
1. Swedish Bitter Natural Remedies of Skin Moles
Swedish bitter is one of the best natural remedies for skin moles and there are two effective ways to use it for this. Let’s start with the first one. After bathing, put a small cotton pad soaked in Swedish bitter over the mole. Secure it in place with a bandage and leave it in place for the next 4-5 days. Remove it and wash the area well and repeat. Usually, in a month or so, the mole falls off. The second way to use Swedish bitter as a remedy for skin moles is the following.
- Pad the skin mole with Swedish bitter daily.
- Then apply slightly crushed cabbage leaves (washed well with warm water).

2. Copper Sheet, a Sure Cure for Skin Tags
For this simple remedy, you will need a 0,3-0,5 thick copper sheet, big enough to cover the skin tag entirely.

After cooling down, secure the copper sheet over the skin mole with a bandage.
3. Celandine Natural Remedies for Skin Moles

Do this procedure twice a day, in the morning and at night before bedtime, and three times a day on the weekends. Follow this remedy for 7-10 days, closely monitoring the evolution of the moles until complete healing. If you don’t have fresh celandine around you, you can use an alcohol tincture made from this plant. Soak dried celandine in 38-40° alcohol for 8-10 days. Pour the tincture into small amber bottles. Apply the tincture to the mold daily.
4. Castor Oil Remedy for Skin Moles
Massage the skin moles with castor oil, twice a day, in the morning and in the evening with gentle moves, without rushing.

In the first two days, you might experience slight pain, which will disappear.
