6 of the Best Essential Oils for Skin Tags

Frankincense Essential Oil For Skin Tags

frankincenseWhen in doubt, use Frankincense! While that may always be the case for many health problems and emotional upsets, it’s definitely the rule when it comes to unsightly skin tags!

Frankincense is a potent oil, and it works by cutting off oxygen circulation to the tag and drying it out from the inside out. With just a dab a day, you can be skin tag free with essential oils!

What You’ll Need:

  • Frankincense
  • Petroleum jelly (optional)
  • Carrier oil (optional)

How to Use:

You only need a little to go a long way with Frankincense. Simply use a toothpick or cotton swab that the oil has been applied to. You may apply neat to the tag, but if you have sensitive skin, use the petroleum around the skin tag to prevent nearby areas from being affected by the oil.

You can also use a carrier oil if you wish. Dab the essential oil as close to the base as possible. Only applying to the skin tag will take longer to dry the tag out since it has to travel and further for absorption. Apply 1-2 times daily.

Melaleuca Essential Oil For Skin Tags

tea tree melaleucaMelaleuca or Tea Tree essential oil is well-known for its cleansing and purifying properties. But, what about skin tags? Well, it does that too! It’s so effective that you can expect successful results in a week!

According to Chinese medicine, skin tags (acrochordon) are the result of wet organs and dampness in the body. To dry things up and to reduce the physical manifestations of this condition, Tea Tree oil works to dry out tags and their oxygen life source with its antibacterial, anti-fungal, and antiviral properties.

What You’ll Need:

  • 3 drops of Melaleuca
  • Cotton ball

How to Use:

Clean the skin tag and surrounding area thoroughly. Wet the cotton ball with water and squeeze out excess water. Apply the Tea Tree oil and massage into the skin tag ensuring that you get to the base. Repeat this process three times a day.
