A small but elongated skin tag on my upper chest was annoying me and I kept fiddling with it. It had broken off before some years ago but gradually regrew. I have successfully removed seborrheic keratoses and small warts with rosemary oil so I thought I would try it on the skin tag. I applied it with a finger once a day, and after a week it turned black and crusty. I stopped the oil for a week but the tag turned a nice healthy pink again so I resumed the rosemary oil. It took two weeks but it did eventually turn black and fall off, leaving no trace behind. I did have to scratch at it with a thumbnail to get the oil to penetrate and I did keep the area very clean. One word of warning be careful to apply the rosemary just to the tag otherwise the skin around it can get irritated.

I saw this remedy on this site and put rosemary oil that I picked up at the grocery on a seborrheic keratosis I had on my cheek near my nose and eye. I used a q-tip to apply it on the raised area 15 to 20 times each day. I didn't cover it or anything. Around day 10 I started alternating apple cider vinegar and rosemary oil because nothing was happening. Then 2 days later, it finally scabbed over and got a bit darker. I picked off the scab about 5 to 7 times over the course of a few days until I could feel the area was smooth. It was slightly discolored for a few weeks and now 2 months later, no sign of it at all. Very thankful for this site!

Thanks to this website I too got rid of a seborrhoeic "wart" or keratosis on my forehead by using rosemary essential oil. I applied it with a fingertip about 10 - 15 times a day. Every three days the wart crusted over and scabbed off, each time leaving it smaller, flatter and lighter in colour. After 15 days it was completely gone. This treatment was very effective and cost mere pennies. Doctors do not seem to know about this treatment but it deserves to be more widely known. I am very pleased with the result.

I had two adjoining Keratosis on my face they were getting larger and darker. I put rosemary essential oil on them and one disappeared in less then a week. I had to scratch the surface of the other one and continued with the rosemary oil and it went away very quickly.
