There are home remedies for moles which are effective and which can be done right at your home.



Garlic is considered as a very effective home remedial for moles. It contains enzymes that break down the clusters of pigment producing cells, thereby eliminating the moles on your skin. It provides another advantage to you-it lightens the dark pigmentation.

To use it, you need to crash a fresh garlic glove and then place it on the mole. Keep it overnight and if you cannot keep it overnight, at least keep it for four hours. You will need to do it daily for a few days and after that the mole will automatically fall of.

If you apply the garlic paste, you will need to disinfect the area with alcohol or any other disinfectant.

Apple cider vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is a very popular remedy for moles. As the name suggests, it contains acid, which can scab the mole and remove it after some time. To apply Apple cider vinegar, you need to dip a cotton ball in it and put the ball on the affected area. To secure the ball in its place, you can use a bandage or medical tape. Keep it overnight. You will need to do this daily for about a week or 10 days and the mole will fall off. You can also directly put Apple cider vinegar on the mole and keep doing it until the mole dries naturally. If you see a scar left behind by the mole after treatment with Apple cider vinegar, you can use coconut oil to lighten the scar. Before you apply vinegar on your skin, apply petroleum jelly on the surrounding area to protect the skin around the mole.


A tincture of iodine is also beneficial against moles and skin tags. It can cause natural cell death and so can eliminate the clusters causing the mole. Iodine tincture is available in all the medical stores. To apply it, first you need to clean the affected area and then apply 5% iodine solution on the mole. If the mole is flat, you can scratch it using an emery board before you apply iodine on it. After application of iodine, you can bandage the area or use a gauze to cover it. Keep it overnight and repeat the procedure daily for one or two weeks. To avoid deep purple iodine stain on your skin, you can apply a lotion or a petroleum jelly around the mole. If you do not want to use the bandage, you can apply the iodine solution on the mole and let it dry but you will need to apply it 2 to 3 times a day.

Flaxseed oil

Flaxseed oil is effective against moles. It first softens the mole and then loosens them on the edges, as a result of which the mole comes off easily.

Castor oil

Castor oil is also effective against moles and you can use it to remove moles from your body. It is also effective against warts, and skin tags. Castor oil can dissolve and eliminate unusual growths on your skin. Be advised that this method may leave scars. The Castor oil method may take some time because it eliminates one layer of the mole at a time.

To use it, you need to mix a pinch of baking soda and few drops of castor oil. Use the mixture and rub on the mole. Leave it for few hours and let it dry naturally. You will need to do this twice daily for about one month. You can also use Castor oil alone if you do not have baking soda at home.
