Are there things about your body that you don’t really like?
There are some body parts that I often wished I could change–like the bump on my nose that my brother constantly picked on me for growing up.
Or my chin…which I never liked when I looked at my profile–I think it’s too pronounced.
I think we all have something we’d like to change about our bodies.
While I’ve entertained the thought about plastic surgery, for some reason, it was never a road that I could fully commit to so I’ve just sucked it up and decided to like the bump on my nose and my big chin.
Another thing I always wanted to change growing up were some moles that I had–one on my back and one on my left arm.
When I was in my 20’s I had the one on my back burned off at a dermatologist office.
I had an appointment during a day when I was nannying so I took the girls with me & I totally passed out when they burned it off. I still remember smelling burning skin and seeing Chelsea (11) and Gabby (9) watching as all this happened and the look of fear on their faces when I passed out.
After a big chunk-o-change to the doctors and a bit of a scare to Chelsea and Gabby there was something about burning off the one on my arm that didn’t really appeal to me.
(As a totally aside–I still keep in touch with Chelsea & Gabby to this day–they are like little sisters to me & I love them dearly–maybe that bonded us?)
You can imagine my delight when I read that you can use Oregano essential oils to remove moles!
I busted out my Oregano Oil, started right away and 6 days later, it was gone!
Seriously–so. freaking. exciting. to. me.
Here’s the protocol that I did.
(*note doing this at night seemed to work better for me as Oregano has a strong smell and although I have a lot of Italian in me, I don’t enjoy smelling like a pizza shop!)
Step 1: Apply a drop of lavender on the skin area around the mole (to prevent any burning from the Oregano Oil)
Step 2: Drop 1 drop of Oregano essential oil onto a q-tip.
Dab the q-tip on the mole for about 30 seconds and cover with band-aid.
Step 3: Repeat daily until the mole is gone. You can do this 2x/day for faster results.
A few notes:
Oregano oil is considered a “hot” oil–it will burn your skin if you don’t dilute it with fractionated coconut oil–which is why I suggest using a q-tip to put it onto the mole.
The first couple of nights I put it directly onto the band-aid, which then came in contact with not only the mole but my skin as well so I actually burned my skin.
(I’m a tough Jersey girl, I can handle it 🙂 To heal it, I used Frankincense & Lavender & it’s healed up nicely.)
Stop using if it causes prolonged redness, swelling, itching or dry skin.
It may take up to 30 days for some moles to be gone.
Make sure that the oil that you are using is certified pure, therapeutic grade oil (yeah, I’m saying, make sure it’s doTERRA).
Want to get your hands on some Oregano Oil to get rid of some nagging moles?
(It’s also great for immune support so it’s great to have on hand).
Until Next Time!
