Let me begin by saying that I have no medical training. I am not a doctor, not a dermatologist, not even a skin care expert. I just want to share my experience with you. Also, please use common sense when trying to treat any type of skin mole yourself by first checking with your doctor to make sure it is non-cancerous.
I had this light colored skin mole, about the diameter of a pencil eraser. I had heard of several essential oils (including Sandalwood, Myrrh, Lavender, Oregano, and Frankincense) that were supposed to remove moles and I wanted to give one a try. I decided to begin with Frankincense, I knew how valuable it has been through history for various skin problems and I liked that it wasn't a "hot" oil like oregano. I stole this info about Frankincense from my Total Skin Repair Balm post.
Frankincense Essential Oil is amazing in so many ways but we will stick to skin care here. It has an astringent property that tones and lifts the skin, also reducing the appearance of wrinkles. It also helps fade scars and stretch marks and is known for its anti-aging properties. Frankincense Oil is Cytophylactic, it promotes the regeneration of healthy cells and keeps existing cells and tissues healthy. According to OrganicFacts.Net, "When you combine this aspect of frankincense oil with its powerful astringent capabilities, you have a potent anti-aging quality that frankincense oil is often used for. It can help you to eliminate sun spots, remove micro-wrinkles around the eyes and cheeks, and generally tone and tighten skin all over your body, while simultaneously replacing old or dying cells with new healthy ones!"
I began by applying just a dab of pure Frankincense essential oil, neat, directly on the mole at least twice a day.
|Sorry about the quality, it was very hard to take this myself!|
|10 days later|
|After 11 days|
|Day 17, as you can see this is a much closer up and its still hard to see.|
(I was appalled to see how awful my skin looks in the close up pics, almost didn't want to share!)
I am still applying the Frankincense until it is completely gone!
BTW, if you decide to try this please use a high quality essential oil. I get mine from Spark Naturals. You can save 10% on an order placed with them if you use code enjoy at check out!
