I've had mixed results with castor oil. Some moles would shrink in size instantly and others would take a few months. Some moles were not affected at all. I heard that mixing castor oil and baking soda would work well together, but it didn't help me at all.
This seems to work for most skin issues such as skin tags, moles, warts, even skin cancer (removes the lesion/roots but does not heal the cancer):
Mix Castor oil with baking soda. Make into a paste, like tooth paste. Dab on the lesion and cover with a band-aid. Continue doing this until lesion fall off. Be patient. The area will heal without any scaring. Edgar Casey first recommended this procedure decades ago. When you remove a lesion with acid you will normally leave a scar. Baking Soda is alkaline and safe to use. My kitty Fonzie has a lesion on his forehead. We have been dabbing this mixture on his head when we can catch him. No band-aid. It is now just a tenth of what it was. Making a video of this and will post after the lesion is gone and his fur has grown back. I've used this on myself and it has always worked well.
Castor Oil and Baking Soda
I've got an enormous of moles and a few skin tages. I was so excited to read that I can get rid of them so easily! I always thought they were permanent. And the one that the derm. removed a few years ago left a 'burn' scar, and cost me $120 (they didn't mention this beforehand either) I've been ridding them with the Castor Oil/Baking soda paste method. I read the AC-Vinegar works well, but since I had the whole bottle of Castor Oil, and I find that it does not burn the skin around the mole or skin tag, I am using this as my initial attack on the moles. I have a little advice for anyone curious about this method. It is basically very similar to the AC-Vinegar method, but just want to add a few helpful tips. I am still learning myself, as I realize that one method alone may not rid every mole I have.
For the purpose of these tips, I'll state that one 'application' would be considered 4-8 hours, which can typically be done during a workday or a night of sleep.
1. For the first 1-3 applications, nothing new might be noticed. This is usual.
*I've read that the ideal consistency is that of 'gum', and this has worked best for me. So make it more on the moldable side rather than too runny. You should be able to almost roll it into a little ball and stick it on the mole. This is also better so that the mixture doesn't leak out too quickly.
2. For faster results, 'score' the mole or skin tag (scraping lightly with a needle, toothpick or nail file) prior to each application.
**Please note that this will make the mole more tender and a red or irritated area will usually develop around the mole due to distress from the scoring. If your mole is in a visible place (on the face or neck) you may not want to score it. In my own case, I'd let them dry and scab up and apply light makeup since they were near my face or neck...and I was still presentable during the treatment! This won't hamper the treatments, it just takes more time. Either way, it should take only 1-2 more applications to get to the next phase.
3. Once you start to feel a slight tingling or burn, this means the mole is moving into the 'disintegration' phase. I imagine it as if the paste is literally eating away at the mole, at least that is what it feels like, and looks like afterwards. The burn doesn't have to occur for the treatment to be effective. I've so far only noticed it on moles, but not with skin tags. Sometimes I will place light pressure with my finger on the area if the tingling starts to subside, to make the most of the application. I feel that this helps to really dig in there and pulverize that thing! It simply feels like a tiny sunburn; and you will likely gain a tolerance for it.
4. I've noticed that some (bigger or raised) moles seem to be full of blood, and this disintegration phase will often look like a blood bath (sorry but that's really what it looks like) when you take the bandaid off, so take care when wearing an application if you are going to be out in public or with friends. Other moles just seem to flatten without the blood, but it's still good to be cautious during this phase, in case of a leaking bandaid. Nothing appealing about that!
5. Once the mole has significantly been disintegrated, use your judgment about peeling it off, or letting it heal. It seems each case is different, and there seem to be no firm method of what to do from here, so go with what you feel. Sometimes I let the mole rest for a day or two so I can truly determine what kind of progress has been made. Other times I just keep going at it. It's often hard to tell if the mole is gone, when there is a scab area, hence the uncertainty.
6. I also read that treating more than one mole at a time is not the best idea, because your immune system is aiding in fighting it off. I attacked quite a few big moles in the past few weeks, and I certainly have had some spells of fatigue that came out of nowhere; just something to note.
In any case, I won't hesitate to try different methods, or perhaps even switch methods mid-treatment. I am covered with plenty of 'beauty' marks, and once the big ones are completely addressed, I'll still be at this for awhile!
Castor Oil and Baking Soda
Remove skin tags, moles, etc: A Cayce Remedy that worked for me was mixing castor oil and baking soda into a paste and apply cover with a bandaid is necessary refresh it till it disappears.Worked every time. John

Blood Root Paste did indeed remove a few moles from me. Each mole took a bout a week. It can be a bit uncomfortable and painful for a few days when it swells up. This method supposedly uses your own immune system. Those with auto immune systems may wish to consider this fact.
Since it became hard to find, I can also testify to Edgar C's baking soda and Castor oil method. (The Castor oil is Cold Pressed. Found in Health food Stores.Not the normal type found in Drug stores.) Scratching or pricking the mole, then applying a paste of the two ingredients, and covering with a bandage. The first mole I tried with this method was gone in 3 days ( takes a bout a week to heal after that.) I have 2 that are being treated right now. They are in the "blister" swollen stage on day 2. That can be a bit painful...but they should be gone in the next 2 days... This is suppose to work with warts as well. It did indeed get rid of a very, very small one on my penis.. it felt like a grain of salt under the skin... this took about 12 days... A much bigger wart on my toe that I have had for almost 10 years has not seen results yet, after 12 days... So it may be a stronger,older wart, or the method just might work better on Moles? Either way , it does seem to work on both.

I have face moles and I have tried all the mole remedies. They all seem to work, but it takes too long and I look like hell doing it. With the Iodine treatment, the mole shrunk, but it was so messy and ugly, ugh!
Then I tried Clove Essential Oil and it worked! I had a HUGE mole by my eye (bigger than a pencil eraser) which is almost gone after 1 week! SO FAST! All the other treatments seemed to take forever...
What I did was put 1 drop of undiluted Clove Essential oil on the mole, then mix 1 drop Clove with one drop of carrier oil and put that on a round band-aid and I kept that on the mole to keep it wet. (Keeping it wet keeps it from scabbing and makes it shrink more quickly.)
I remove the band-aid and do this same treatment daily - maybe 4-6 times per day with the clove oil straight, then half and half on the bandaid, and I slept with the band-aid, too. Only removed it for showers and then put it right back on.
Do not use more than 1 drop straight and always put the carrier oil on after! Otherwise it can burn you. I have been doing this same thing on tiny moles, without the band-aid - and those shrink too, but more slowly. The only trouble with this method is I got a scab where the band-aid touches my skin. Ive been applying lemon salve to the area before I put the band-aid on, so its not so bad, but I can see that discouraging others.
Get some salve before you start! All together, I bought: Clove Essential Oil, Lemon Butter Cuticle creme (I use as salve for everything, great stuff!), Maracuja oil as a carrier oil, and a box of round band-aids.
The moles that I have removed with this method shrink down to pore sized bump and the dark end just pops off like a black head; its very odd. I keep applying it to the raised bump that is left until there is nothing there.
I had a large mole on my breast, the cost to remove it was rediculous so I decided to try coconut oil. It took about 2 months of keeping the mole saturated with the oil, but it finally just came off in small pieces and has not come back.
Coconut Oil Remedy: I had a very large mole on my left breast and was not fond of going to the Doctor's to have it removed.
I placed a fingernail dolop on a bandaid and placed it over the mole for approximately 8 weeks everyday. I could see that it was starting to disintigrate before my eyes. And it just seemed like suddenly it was gone. What a relief to not have to get it taken off by a Doctor.
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.

For a cyst, I used cold sore medicine and it cleared right up. It was on the back of my ear and had been bothering me for years. Almost completely gone now after one night
DMSO cures moles, put it on sparingly. i reccomend you read all about DMSO on the web first before you use it.

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 pierced a mole and then put a fresh piece of cut garlic on the mole, and secured it with a cotton taped to keep it in place. Did it for 2 days and the mole dried up and fell off. I have successfully done this twice.
