Coconut Oil For Mole Removal: I've been using coconut oil for about six months now and it's fabulous for heaps of things. But something interesting I noticed was this. My skin pale and blemish free, but just above the right breast, I noticed a mole starting to form. It was quite large (about half the size of a pinky nail) and it was skin coloured. I don't expose my body to the sun and I alwasy use sunscreen, so I didn't understand where this mole came from. Over a few weeks, it started turning soft pink and it got me a little worried. I start applying VCO to it every night after my shower and every morning whilst getting ready for work. In about 2 weeks, it had just flaked off in the shower. There's no trace of it ever being there and the skin beneath it is the normal colour with no trace of a scar. I'm so pleased with the unexpected result, I've started applying it to the black mole on my lower back.

I have used extra virgin coconut oil topically and internally for seven months. It is fantastic. I applied it topically to a pre cancerous skin lesion on my forehead at the hairline and within three days the lesion was gone! I wish I had known about the benefits of coconut oil six years ago when I underwent Mohs excision and plastic surgery on my nose for skin cancer. I could have saved myself a lot of worry, not to mention pain and nine month of plastic surgery procedures to reconstruct my nose.

I have a big round mole, 3d shaped, on my face kinda like Enrique Iglesias had it, anyways I'm starting the garlic process, I already put garlic on the mole in the afternoon (yesterday) (I didn't cover the surrounding skin around the mole) and it burned my skin and made a big rash, I noticed the mole bigger and darker. I wasn't sure if to keep going or stop the process, I felt it dry later in the afternoon and thought "maybe I should keep going and dry it up till it falls" so I did my second time and left it for 4 hours then I took the cotton ball off and peeled the skin and part of the mole came off, now I'm been bleeding for 10 hours and have not stopped, seriously Iv'ed wasted 2 rolls of paper. I'm scared and don't know what to do.
Guys its a joke, it is bleeding but light, now I have garlic on it again, we see how it goes. Stay safe and be safe.

Better But With Side Effects
I tried to remove a mole using garlic, the mole is half the size it was before and is very dry and hard. The skin around it has become red and inflammed. I decided to stop the garlic treatment. Is there anyway I can reduce the redness?

I put a shred of garlic clove on my facial mole, it was really small but it was on the tip of my nose & I didnt like it. So yesterday is when I put the garlic and just now I removed the facial mole with a toothpick and I just picked it off. Yes it's kinda painful, but worth it! because it is now gone :)

Better But With Side Effects
Garlic worked but with side effects. I tried the garlic remedy for my facial moles and I did get rid of them in four days. The only problem is my moles were very small like pinhead sized so it was difficult to apply the garlic on just the moles without the surrounding skin. So I burnt my face badly and now have bean sized black scars on my face. I have tried vitamin e oil and cream to fade the scars without success. If anyone here knows how I can fade these black scars without bleaching my face (am african) I would really appreciate.

About 4 days ago I tried the garlic remedie, then every day I would apply garlic juice about 3 times a day. Then at night I would cut a piece of garlic and put it on the mole and cover it with a bandage then go to sleep. When I wake up I would peel it and repeat. And just a few hours ago I peeled a little skin off, and it was bleeding a lot. but surprisingly it doesn't hurt one bit. and when I press the spot of my mole it hurts a little. Please advise!! Thanks

I didn't believe a single word of garlic..cause I thought it was the same things people listen and say without trying it. I decided to give it a try.
I had two moles(flat) by birth with a diameter of almost .05 and two other moles which were not there by birth. I decided to try on all four of them. I squashed a garlic with a kitchen rols and put a small piece of it on each mole and covered it with a scotch tape..since I didn't have a band aid or medical tape. I slept with it, and next morning my cheek was burnt on the skin where garlic had touched it. The mole had given out some sort of liquid too. I cleaned it and applied garlic again in the day and kept it on. I did the same at night. Next morning I looked worse then ever, it seemed as if I was scarred for life, so at day I gave it a break..I even peeled a bit of mole with tweezer but it hurt like hell so I left it alone. The third day I didn't apply garlic. However at night I applied garlic, this time I applied vasline to skin around the mole. Next day(fourth day) I didn't apply garlic. I took a bath and peeled off some of the moles. There was still some part of mole left clinging to skin. However when it dried up by next day, I just peeled it off. Todays the sixth day, by burns are almost gone and so are the moles, IT IS AMAZING. I couldn't believe it. It actually worked, Thanks to Earth clinic. And YAY for garlic. I'm glad. :)

Hello I like to say how glad I am to find this website,it rocks. anyhow I always never been a big fan of medical treatments from doctors anyhow. I have had multiple failures on their treatments and now I have become a lab rat for my projects at home which i wont state to you now on the results until I see positive results... But I will say I have used many treatments through Earth Clinic and had no failures on remedies yet to date, my new project is ridding moles on my side chest under my arm, if it is successful i will tell you all later time, i only started to try and rid it with only garlic clove and boy it stings, but i will live through it all. also like to say my father in-law has a bad case of gout on his feet and fingers and i called him and told him I want to try something on it that is natural as I see him not getting any results on modern medicines. ok thats all for now, oh one more thing my secret project becomes a success i will sheare it with you all for free, i hate the sites you read for a cure and at the end it say $19.99 for this book of home remedies why? i got it free here ok thats all for now peace

I had a couple of small moles on my face which were (at least to me) unsightly. Especially during the winter, when my tan went away. I decided to try some remedies that i found online. Applying honey to the mole didn't do anything for me. Neither did eating a lot of potassium. So i decided to try garlic. I got one of those bowls with a masher and mashed up two little Garlic peaces. When they where all mashed up, i got a Q-tip, and rubbed the inside of the bowl. (with the garlic still in it) I then took the Q-tip and placed it on one of my moles, and in just one day, it fell mostly off. I still have a small portion of the outer ring, but hopefully that will go away too. Otherwise, clear beautiful skin was discovered under the mole. Hope this helps. God bless you guys.

Two months ago I used garlic to try to remove three moles on my body. I smashed and cut a piece of garlic for each held on by a bandage. I admit i didn't follow the advice to use the smallest piece possible because it burns the skin around the mole. The garlic kept moving around under the bandage. which gave me a burn, so i taped it on. That gave me a worse burn and cellulitis, but not on my face. The mole on my face peeled off with clean skin under. I did see two black roots left and within a month the black came back but the mole is really flat. The other two are a lot smaller. I actually had two skin tags, that i wasn't treating, dry up and fall off, which i thought was really cool. I also had swollen glands in my groin. This whole time I am swallowing a smashed and cut up raw clove every time I ate something. I didn't chew it. I did this for two and a half weeks. This time for about a week i had a pain on my right side every time i had a full bladder. The pain was getting steady and the next day i had a fever. I swallowed two cloves and chewed the third. It burned so i swallowed quick. The next day my man said i was snoring like crazy which i normally don't do according to him. Then i noticed the pain and fever were gone, but the inside of my cheeks and a little on the roof of my mouth were swollen. I can feel the glands in my face are swollen also. 12 hours later the swelling in my mouth is subsiding. I don't advise chewing it but swallowing raw garlic rules. Scientific studies say cut up raw garlic kills bacteria and such in a 9 inch radius around it. Scientific studies also show garlic kills cancer. This site rules.
