1. Oregano Oil
2. Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil provides a painless way to remove skin tags from your body. This oil has anti-fungal, antibacterial and antiviral properties and it also works to dry out the skin tag so that it falls off on its own. Soak a clean cotton ball in water and then add three drops of tea tree oil to it. Thoroughly clean the skin tag and the surrounding area with soap and water and then completely dry the area. Use the cotton swab that has water and tea tree oil on it and gently massage the skin tag and the surrounding area three times a day. It is important to use the water because tea tree oil should always be diluted or else you are at risk for skin irritation.
3. Dandelion Stem Juice
4. Lemon Juice
Lemon juice is a powerful antiseptic and it also contains citric acid which helps to dry out skin tags by decomposing the cells. Take a half of a fresh lemon and apply the juice to a cotton ball. Apply this directly to the skin tag and leave it on without washing it off. You can apply this up to three times a day and continue the routine until the skin tag falls off.
5. Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar is able to destroy the skin tag tissue so that it goes away completely. Take two tablespoons of apple cider vinegar and soak a cotton ball with this. Apply it to the skin tag after completely cleansing the skin and drying it. Make sure to squeeze the cotton ball while you massage the skin tag so that the skin tag is saturated with the vinegar. This can be done three times a day until the skin tag is gone. Keep in mind that apple cider vinegar is acidic and it can cause some mild itching and stinging for a few minutes when you do this treatment. To minimize these effects dilute the vinegar with some water before doing the treatment.
6. Fig Stem Juice
Fresh garlic has anti-fungal and antibacterial properties which help to improve skin health and dry out skin tags. You need four fresh garlic cloves and then ground these up into a paste and apply the paste directly to the skin. Place a bandage over this to keep the paste in place.
