Do you want to get rid of moles?
Whether they’re just an annoyance or are causing you to worry about skin cancer risk, it’s important to learn about the treatments that are available.
One of the most popular ways to remove moles is by applying tea tree oil (or TTO) directly onto the mole.
It can be applied in several different ways: as a topical solution, as a supplement taken orally, or even by putting drops into your bathtub.
How Long Does It Take for Tea Tree Oil to Get Rid of Moles?
How long it will take tea tree oil to get rid of a mole depends on the size of the mole, your skin type, and how much you apply.
In general, however, it takes about two weeks for moles to dry up after using tea tree oil.
If you have a large mole or one that’s fairly dark in color, you may want to cover it with a bandage before applying tea tree oil.
This can help remove freckles faster because they’ll be less exposed to air and sunlight while they’re healing.
Additionally, as mentioned above when discussing how much tea tree oil is required: any kind of covering prevents sun exposure which helps reduce freckling and fading naturally over time (but also speeds up results).
What Are the Benefits of Using Tea Tree Oil to Get Rid of Moles?
There are a few reasons why you might choose to use tea tree oil to get rid of moles.
First and foremost, it’s an all-natural treatment that won’t cause any side effects.
Additionally, it doesn’t cost much to buy and is easy to apply yourself (or have someone else apply for you).
It’s also safe for children and pets—if they do happen to ingest the tea tree oil by accident, there’s no need for concern because it can be easily removed from their system with water.
Also worth noting: unlike other treatments that only target moles directly, tea tree oil can also be used as an antiseptic against other skin conditions like athlete’s foot!
What Can You Do If a Mole Is Growing Back After Treatment?
If a mole isn’t fully gone after two weeks of treatment, you may need to reapply the tea tree oil to the entire area.
This can be done once a day for up to two months, depending on how quickly your moles are growing back.
Moles that have been removed may also grow back and/or become inflamed.
When this happens, apply tea tree oil directly to the mole with cotton balls using gentle pressure for 30 seconds before bedtime every night for up to three months.
If you’re dealing with inflammation from an existing mole or new growths in sensitive areas (e.g., your face), try applying a small amount of lavender essential oil diluted in olive oil before going to sleep at night.
The bottom line: if you keep applying the oil, and you have a little patience, tea tree oil is the better option.
Or, if possible, try to get your moles removed by a doctor, but add in some tea tree oil as well for good measure.
