Healing Natural Oils H-Skin Tags Formula: Does it work?

As we age, numerous growths start to happen throughout the body. Skin tags are benign, small pieces of skin growth that occur in aging skin. They love to happen at the armpits, neck, and other creases of the body. Healing Natural Oils H-Skin Tags formula is a homeopathic topical treatment that promises to be very effective to treat skin tags. Does this treatment work?

Skin Tags
  1. Active ingredient Thuja occidentalis has pro-destructive cell properties and is used to treat cancer; it is unclear how it works. This may help destroy skin tag cells.

  2. Second active ingredient Calendula officinalis plays a role in wound healing but it is unclear how it helps resolves skin tags. Likely, it counters the destructive properties of Thuja occidentalis.

  3. The essential oil blend (Citrus limon peel, Melaleuca alternifolia leaf-branch, Melissa officinalis blossoms & whole plant, Thuja occidentalis leaf): it is unclear how this impacts skin tags except for the Thuja ingredient, which is a known homeopathic treatment for cancer.

  4. This product is comprised of essential oils which may afford it a strong pleasant vs unpleasant smell.

  5. Possible skin irritation and allergic reactions may occur from these essential oils or active ingredient extracts so do not use of there are skin symptoms such as pain, burning, itch, or rash.


Overall, this product relies primarily on anectodal ( self-reported) accounts of its efficacy. Therefore, it is hard with clear scientific evidence to confirm how it works. It does not appear to be a harmful product but it is unclear how it can destroy benign skin tissue in skin tags, unless the Thuja occidentalis is causing the destruction.

As a SkinVestment, a 33 ml bottle of H-Skin tags costs about $32-$36.Consider this for very small lesions on the neck, armpits, groin. However, if lesions persist or if a skin rash develops from the product, stop its use and seek a health care provider.
