A mole can appear on almost any part of the body, but the most difficult to hide are moles on the face. Sometimes a mole can be viewed as a distinguishing mark, making you stand out in a good way. But usually people see moles as a nuisance, especially moles on the face.

Consume more potassium. Moles and warts can be caused by a potassium deficiency. Eat more potassium-rich foods like bananas. You also can take a quality multivitamin, preferably a food-based multivitamin like the NOW Multi-Food Complex.

Massage the area with tea tree oil every day for two weeks. Tea tree oil has many great benefits and is very common. It can be found in oil form, or even as a soap. Apply at least once per day, preferably after a shower when your pores are more open.

Make a paste of baking soda and castor oil. Use some gauze or a cotton ball to apply the paste to the mole once or twice a day, leaving it on for at least 10 minutes or up to an hour. If you see any redness or feel any burning, you could be having an allergic reaction; remove the paste immediately. Make fresh paste each time you apply.

Make a paste from ground flaxseed and local raw, organic honey. This can be especially good if your mole is relatively new, because the honey might help to alleviate any allergies that are aggravating or contributing to the mole. Apply fresh paste one to two times a day, for 10 minutes to an hour.

If all else fails, you can have your mole removed by a skilled dermatologist. You might have a scar from this procedure, which is why you should try other remedies first.


Try one method for a minimum of two weeks before moving on to the next. Also some of these attempts can be combined, such as potassium in your diet and castor oil/baking soda paste. Be consistent; success comes to those who do the right things, long enough.


Before attempting any remedy or diet change, contact your health care professional.

Moles can be cancerous, so see your doctor if your mole changes in appearance, bleeds or otherwise seems unusual
