Remove Skin Tags Naturally With Essential Oils

Skin blemishes can have a big impact on our daily lives. In particular, they can reduce one’s overall sense of self-confidence and self-esteem and make it harder to feel good about oneself. Next to warts, they’re one of the most common types of skin-related issues that one can experience.

While things like visiting a doctor to have the skin tag removed or using different creams or other products to remove skin tags is an option, a better choice for many is to use natural remedies. Essential oils are a perfect example, and they can help eliminate the unsightly skin tags and make it easier to feel good about your skin’s appearance.

What are Skin Tags and how are they Caused?

Skin tags are small, benign tumors most commonly caused by groups of blood vessels that become trapped in a thicker piece of skin. They usually occur when two parts of the skin rub against one another causing friction. They are common in areas like the neck, the thighs, eyelids, or the groin area.

Some evidence suggests that underlying conditions may also increase the risk of skin tags – things like HPV or diabetes are often present when skin tags are an issue. No matter the cause, treating the skin tags is often done in one of two ways. Either a minor medical procedure is done to numb the area and clip the tag away or chemicals are used to freeze the tag and it will fall off on its own.

Both can be painful and expensive, and neither is an option that most will work 100% of the time. But many have found there are better alternatives, including using natural things like essential oils.

It’s important to remember that skin tags in sensitive areas such as the groin and eyelids should always be treated by a medical professional.
Skin tags aren’t inherently dangerous, or harmful to your health. However, they can be annoying and if this is the case, having them removed is something that can be done easily enough.

Essential oils may be a less painful option than having the tag cut or frozen away, and they work by helping the skin tag dry up and eventually fall off. There are a few good essential oils that can that can help do this including:

  • Tea Tree Oil – Far and away the best choice when trying to remove a skin tag, tea tree oil comes from a plant native to Australia. It has strong antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties, and when applied properly it will choke off the blood supply the skin tag receives. This in turn helps the skin tag dry up quickly and fall off. It may take some time, but will eventually produce the results you are looking for.
  • Oregano Oil – This oil has very strong astringent properties that can help get rid of skin tags. It’s one that is also best used diluted, for it has very strong irritant risks. Dilute with coconut or olive oil before use to ensure you don’t suffer any discomfort during the process.
  • Frankincense Oil – This essential oil works just like tea tree oil and drying out the skin tag through reducing blood supply. It’s one that has been used for centuries in India for its curative properties, and while not quite as effective as tea tree oil it still provides good results.
  • Lavender Oil – This option is perfect for those who have sensitive skin and want a more soothing experience. It may take longer than tea tree oil, but over time it can help eliminate the skin tag as well.

How to Apply Essential Oils to Skin Tags

To use the essential oils, simply add several drops to a cotton ball and apply liberally to the skin tag. Repeat twice daily until the tag falls away. For oregano oil or those with sensitive skin, it’s recommended to dilute the oils by adding 10 or 15 drops to 1 to 2 tablespoons of carrier oil like coconut oil.

As you use the oil, the skin tag will begin to change color, darkening as it gradually dries up and moves towards its demise. The key here is persistence while applying two times a day,  it may take a week or longer to notice a difference, but over time you’ll be able to get rid of your skin tag naturally.

    Been doing this with oregano oil and frankincense for years. I don’t dilute….I know I should and will from now on. Works like a dream. Glad to find out about tea tree and lavender also.

    I used to get skin tags often, but haven’t had any in the last couple of year. Now I know what to do if I get them again.

    I didn’t know this could work for skin tags too! I heard it could work for warts, but maybe I wasn’t consistent enough to get results. This will be easier to try.

    Excellent ideas. I agree, frankincense essential oil would be more gentle and I’d say more restorative against skin tags than oregano, which tends to be quite strong and spicy-smelling. Love oregano oil in my soup, makes it smell absolutely delicious!
