This stuff is amazing. It has all sorts of culinary and health uses. Did you know it can also remove moles? It's not an over night thing, it will take a little while.

This will cause the mole to scab over and fall off over time.
Pineapple is packed with natural citric acid that will dissolve the mole; the sea salt sheds the skin giving you smoother, clear skin underneath. You could also use lemons or other fruit high in citric acid.

Carefully apply a layer of honey to the mole and apply a bandage or sterile piece of gauze over it. Leave it on over night. Repeat the process until you are happy with the results.

Apply it to your mole and leave on for at least an hour. Follow these steps three times a day for a few weeks. This will soften the mole and loosen it around the edges, allowing it to fall of easily.
