Bloodroot as an Effective Home Remedy For Skin Moles

Many people suffer from moles anywhere on their bodies. The accumulative skin cells which appear darker in color to the surrounding skin are normally benign (non-harmful) and can be removed by a variety of methods. Bloodroot mole removal is considered to be one of the best natural methods to be rid of the skin lesions and as such, it is used in many mole removal creams that are found on the market today. Unfortunately, the vast majority of such creams is extremely expensive and offers no guarantee in removing the lesions.

The plant has been used for centuries in alternative medicine for its many properties, some of which include, but are by no means limited to:

  • Antibacterial
  • Antioxidant
  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Anti-plaque
  • Antiseptic
  • Diuretic

However there is caution needed in the application of the any bloodroot extract, as there are also various toxins contained within the plant that can be extremely harmful to the human body. Therefore, it is not to be taken orally unless a precise dosage is administered within a pill.

Bloodroot for Moles

As mentioned, bloodroot mole removal is among the most popular remedies in the world. It is easy to use and when the bloodroot is bought from the pharmacy in liquid or paste form on its own rather than as an ingredient within an existing cream, it is relatively inexpensive.

Another way to use bloodroot is to cultivate the plant, obtaining seeds and clippings from a store or online. Plants should not be taken from the wild as they are endangered. Once the plant has been grown at home, steps can be taken to extract a salve, or make a paste using the leaves.

  • Clean mole and surrounding area with soap and water before patting dry with a clean towel.
  • Use a sterilized needle to agitate the surface of the mole.
  • Apply a tiny amount of the salve using a cocktail stick or second sterilized needle. Caution must be taken not to apply too much because of the aforementioned toxins.
  • Cover and leave overnight.
  • Repeat every night for a week to ten days.

When the salve or paste is first applied to the agitated mole, there should be a mild to moderate stinging sensation which implies that the mixture has penetrated the skins surface and is working on the cells. Users may also experience slight inflammation and redness in the area closest to the mole.

After some applications, the mole will appear to change color and shrink before eventually falling off, leaving fresh, reddish skin beneath. This skin should change to match the color of the skin surrounding it after as few days and eventually there will be no sign of a mole ever being there in the first place.

Great care should be taken when applying the bloodroot paste to ensure it is only applied to the mole itself and not the skin around it. Only small amounts should be used each time.
