I used bloodroot paste to remove a few small moles. I got the paste on Amazon, but the seller has left Amazon, and I can't remember the name of the brand. I just that it was super expensive (maybe $30 for a thimble full).

You scratch the mole with sandpaper or a needle until it bleeds just a little. Apply the bloodroot to the mole only and tape it up. Apply again everyday for a few more days, then stop. A blister or a blood blister forms around the mole and the area turns red and irritated. Eventually, a scab forms and it drops off. You're left with a crater, but that's good, it shows the root was removed. I have no scars at all from this, though it took a month or two so for the crater to fill in and for the pinkness to turn a normal color. I used this on my face and neck and it was fine.

I bought Generations Black Salve from a store in California before the FDA banned it because they are no more than tools of the pharmaceutical industry. I have keloid skin and scar from everything. Tested this on the tender inner arm skin where all looked good. No reaction, which is how it should be. Put it on a mole that looked wrong and WOW! It reacted. The mole died, went black. Then the area became inflamed and pussy like it should. My body pushed out the mole and some stringy things. I healed better than from surgery even though I still scarred. The stuff works and is great. Does not react to normal skin if you get it from a reputable place that only uses the bloodroot, gangalal, red clover, and sheep sorrel in it. Generations is gone now, but Best on Earth and another place still have it.

As many people here have noted, bloodroot is an effective solution to unsightly moles and with a felt improvement to one's appearance and quality of life. Dermatologists will charge hundreds of dollars to cut out moles, but with bloodroot, moles can be removed for the cost of only about ten dollars. The scalpel of the doctor will always leave visible line scars, but bloodroot, which is all-natural, will not always scar. I do have a few scars from using bloodroot, but with proper treatment these can be reduced in time. Whether a scar does result seems to be due to the size and location of the mole. Larger moles and the areas around them will turn white from the application of bloodroot. Then, after a few days, the mole will simply shrivel and pop out, leaving a crater which will eventually fill and become covered with skin. I have had scabs form over other smaller moles on my face, and in those cases, the moles came off when the scab peeled away. Red marks larger than the mole were left. These eventually faded with daily treatments of vitamin E oil, which is another miracle cure. I tried special scar reducing cream, and this did nothing. With only a few treatments with vitamin E oil, scarred areas lightened quickly, and within only a couple days, I saw new skin growth. Currently, I am treating scars on my chest from the removal of a few moles that were like fly specks. With time, I'm hopeful that these will heal over as well. Generally, bloodroot works best with larger moles, and it seems to do more damage with the smaller dots. My theory is that the mole tissue absorbs the bloodroot, but around smaller pigmented spots, bloodroot only damages the skin, thus causing worse scarring. On a small speck on my leg, the bloodroot, although applied directly, missed the spot completely, apparently because the mole, being small, did not have any mass of tissue to absorb it. I might suggest simply learning to live with the small mole specks which do not rise above the skin surface, but I do highly recommend it for taking out larger and more unsightly moles. Once the area is white or scabbed, treat it with aloe for healing. Then, when the mole and/or scab is gone, use vitamin E to prevent scarring.

Bloodroot, grown often as an ornamental in gardens has proven to be an amazing remedy for the removal of facial moles!!! I had on, dark brown mole on my chin that grew darker and larger over the years. I stumbled upon this remedy and decided to try it. Absolutely amazing! The pulverized root mixed with a little cayenne pepper and a drop of grapefuit seed extract was applied to the lightly scratched surface of the mole. This was covered with a bandaid and left overnight. In the morning I applied a hot compress for 1 minute. Then the bandaid was removed. A scab had formed over the surface of the mole. I applied an antibiotic ointment over this. It is important to let the scab fall of in it's own time! After three (!) days the scab fell off and my mole I had lived with for 15 years is COMPLETELY gone!!!

About a year ago, I decided to use bloodroot to remove a pencil- eraser-sized mole on the left side of my chin close to the jaw line just below my mouth. I chose the bloodroot/DMSO combination since I understood that the DMSO would speed the process through the skin. I have to say that I was not prepared for what happened. Once I had started the process, though, there was no turning back. I covered just the mole with the bloodroot paste and kept it covered. I reapplied the paste for about a week. First, the mole turned a cheesy looking white. Then, it scabbed over and had a white ring completely around the edge of it. By this time, the whole thing was about the size of a dime. My jaw swelled up and there were shooting pains in it that kept me from sleeping. This really scared me and I contacted someone for advice. I was advised after about six days of applying the salve to stop applying it, just keep the scab area covered,swab around the OUTSIDE of it with peroxide and it would loosen and fall off. This seemed to take a little longer than I anticipated, but when I added a little warm compress, it truly did pop right out. You certainly don't want to rush this - it has to fall out on its own. The back of the "mole" was grayish and smoothe with little dots on it that I assume were the tiny blood vessels that had supplied blood to it. The spot where the mole had been looked like I had taken a paper punch and punched out a circle of skin. I thought I was in for a bad scar, but I started putting vitamin E on it and organic coconut oil. It's been a year now and the spot is not very noticable to anyone but me, and that's because I know its there. I continue to keep it oiled and also use anti-scar products just for good measure. The faint of heart should NOT use bloodroot, especially on their face. Using it on a floppy mole in some inconspicious place covered by clothing would probably be a lot less scary. My mole was fairly large and well anchored, and on my face - not the floppy kind on a stalk. I do think it is amazing stuff, BUT extreme care needs to be taken when using it.

Is cancema and blood root the same thing? I put some cancema on a tiny mole I had on my shoulder - a tiny bit three days in a row. The area around the mole went quite red about 1cm immediately around the mole it was raised up a bit and creamish colour. I covered it with a bandaid each day as it took weeks to heal, but when the scab finally came off the mole had gone. It has slowly healed and now I'm putting a little lavender essential oil on it each day and the scar is disappearing quite noticeably. I am a real fan of this website....thank you. Maily

re: Bloodroot Paste. Used it to test it on a small mole that I have had all of my life before my wife used it on a suspicious looking mole on her back. Her "suspicious" mole fell off and healed considerably faster than my mole! Cansema worked very well. It was painful for me, not overly so, just noticeable. Her experience was mild. If you understand the process Cansema is an outstanding remedy. But to use it ignorantly would be unadvisable. Just one of many natural remedies that big pharma cannot profit from. It is impossible to patent natural cures. Therefore, a mainstream cure to cancer has become a money-making machine for the "gods" of this world. Who else would you take your clothes off for just because you are told to do so? Sheeple are to be sheared so become informed and share with your friends, family and neighbors.

I used bloodroot paste on a large mole on the back of my neck. It took several weeks because of the size, but it worked wonderfully. I got the idea from my brother in-law who has used it repeatedly on several facial moles. He has had no problems.

Hi, I have been using bloodroot to remove moles for a few months now and have found it to be a miracle! I am worried that the FDA may try to crackdown on this and other herbal remedies and would like to suggest to you and all readers that this upcoming elections year we have a chance to vote for someone who would stop this from happening. His name is Ron Paul and is a doctor but has publicly stated and written columns about how the FDA has no right to stop us from using these herbs. That's all thanks!

I use bloodroot paste on moles and skin tags. As everyone says, it does cause moderate pain and redness. I apply it for 3 days with a bandaid over it and then I apply neosporn or bag balm for 3 days with a bandaid and the mole or tag falls off by itself at the root level. The area then heals and within a few weeks there is no sign of damage.

Hey, I said I'd write back after I finished using the bloodroot paste on a mole on my arm, so here I am! I am mostly pleased with the results. The reason I say mostly is because I seem to have missed a tiny bit of the mole when I was applying the paste, and am left with a tiny speck of mole, about the size of a pen-tip. But the part of the mole that did get covered is completely gone. I had applied a fresh bit of paste to the mole after every daily shower (because the medical tape got wet and uncomfortable, mostly) for a week. A white ring developed around the mole (the part that I had missed didn't get the ring). The surrounding skin was red and felt itchy, rather uncomfortable. At the end of the week, I left the bandage off while in the shower, and when the water hit it the scab that had formed in the center of the ring, it just fell off. I was left with a hole in the skin, not very deep, and it didn't hurt at all. After that, I applied Neosporin and a bandage, kept it changed every day for another week, and after that I stopped applying anything to it at all, not even a bandage. Now it's all healed up,the skin is smooth and there's only a pink mark, and the little speck of mole that I missed. I plan to use the paste again to get rid of the speck.

I tried the Bloodroot Paste - I have many moles and I am very anti-doctor. I have been cursed with these moles since I was young. I read about Bloodroot & decided to give it a try. Well I started on one (to get a feel for the length of time & what to expect) I began at the beginning of Jan 2007 and on Jan 31,2007 that first mole just fell off!No bleeding -- nothing- it just simply fell off-WOW!! It is Feb 1ST &I am starting on #2 mole.. I did experience a small about of discomfort on the last day.. before it fell off- so I opted to do one at a time (some of mine are quite large) I am VERY pleased with the results!! And by the way-- this morning the spot where that first mole was.. is barely noticeable..

My husband had a large mole on his back that has increased in size over the years. He's very anti-doctor. After some extensive research he decided to try the bloodroot paste. It has worked perfectly, just as described. Be prepared, it can be VERY painful, especially with a bigger lesion, but he is very satisfied with the results. I am an RN, and I am amazed by the results and complete and total removal of the mole. He now has a nice pink, granulated wound that I'm certain will heal quickly without infection. Had he had conventional surgery, I'm certain he would have had a much larger wound with the probable need for a skin graft. We are very satisfied with the results.
