First, what is a skin tag? According to Medical News Today, 

"A skin tag, also known as an acrochordon, cutaneous papilloma, cutaneous tag, fibroepithelial polyp, fibroma molluscum, fibroma pendulum, papilloma colli, soft fibroma, and Templeton skin tag, is a small tag of skin which may have a peduncle (stalk) - they look like a small piece of soft, hanging skin. 

Skin tags are invariably benign - non cancerous - tumors of the skin which cause no symptoms, unless it is repeatedly rubbed or scratched, as may happen with clothing, jewelry, or when shaving. Very large skin tags may burst under pressure. 

They can appear on any part of the surface of the body (skin), but most typically exist in areas where skin may rub against skin, such as the: Eyelids, Axillae (armpits, Under the breasts, Groin. Upper chest and Neck.  Skin tags are very common and generally occur after midlife. They are said to be caused by bunches of collagen and blood vessels which are trapped inside thicker bits of skin.”

Protocol for using Oregano Essential* oil on skin tags:

Apply a drop of oregano oil to the skin tag three times a day.  It may burn for a few minutes because of the strength of the Oregano oil but remember, you want it gone and it will be worth it!  Be careful not to get the Oregano on the skin around the tag but if you do, rub some coconut oil or olive oil on the area.  You can also mix a little lavender oil into the coconut or olive oil to soothe the skin.

It can take anywhere from 2 weeks to 2 months for the tag to disappear but it will happen.  You may not notice any change at first but then the tag will suddenly be darker and then you will be surprised to see it has disappeared a short time later.

*Caution: Make sure you are only using CPTG essential oil.

Thanks for giving the time frame. I have used it for a couple weeks and was about to give up. It is difficult to keep from burning the surrounding skin under the breasts. And on my neck, I have been trying to use it on the whole batch of "baby skin tags" before they become large. Will it get rid of those too?

Thanks for giving the time frame as I was about to give up. When using on a whole batch off "baby skin tags" on the neck, will they eventually go away? I don't want them to keep growing. It is hard not to burn the surrounding skin under the breasts, even with oil.

It will get rid of the small skin tags as well as the large. You can also try adding a little bit of Frankincense essential oil to protect the surrounding skin. If I were you, I would also address the internal issues that may be leading to the skin tags. When the body needs to get rid of something and can't, sometimes there will be evidence of that on the skin. I would try the GX/PB Assist products doTERRA has. See my post on Candida:
