thanks to original post dated 11/9/2010 I tweaked the recipe.
SKIN TREATMENT RECIPE (can be used as an All Natural Scabies treatment)
- Grocery store: Grapeseed Oil (by Olive Oil)
- Instant Hand Sanitizer w/ Aloe
- Coconut Oil Hair conditioner (in the hair section with Afro-American hair products)
- . 3 fl oz Tea Tree Oil
- . 5 fl oz Sweet Orange essential Oil
- . 5 fl oz Clove Bud essential Oil
- 1 fl oz Neem Oil
- Neem Oil Bar of Soap
- get a used water bottle or container same size of 16 oz. fill half full of Grapeseed Oil
- Add 3 drops of each; tt, orange, clove and neem oils. Shake well
Half hour before bed get naked. Spread following products from chin line and hair line down. (may need partner to help spread this in unreachable areas). Sanitizer all over, in creases too including private areas. follow with oil mixture, then coat with coconut oil. Walk or stand around for about 30 minutes until absorbed
If treating for Scabies, you can actually look down and where they were not before, you can see gray specs on the skin in places appear (dead bugs)
After 30 minutes, throw on undies, sweat pants and long sleeve thin shirt to sleep in. You want to sleep in your bed overnight with mixture on.
In morning take shower, gather all sheets regardless then wash dirty clothes, and disinfect house (if scabies). Use Neem soap to wash with in shower. If you are concerned about your hair, add few drops of Neem oil to shampoo. Repeat in 3 days after first treatment, then weekly for 3 weeks. Mix ingredients as needed.
Great for dry skin. Mixture actually makes you feel energized. My kids and I did this for scabies, I tried it first time doing it for 30 mins then washing off. Yes you can, if you look closely see the dead bugs if your eyesight is good.
It was more effective following same directions like the Premethrin as far as leaving it on overnight except this was all natural. We repeated treatment after 3 days then weekly for 3 weeks and cleaned everything in the house.
I want to let every know that this recipe works for scabies! We used it here on a seer of 7 year old twin boys! We included Sulpher soap and a spray of borax and hydrogen peroxide. As to the comment of "watch them crawl out" I think that was to make a point. So much safer and better than using insecticides! Everything was easy to get. I live in Livonia, Mi and there is a health food store here that has wonderful staff who helped me and told me how to use all these. Like the tea tree is so good to add a drop into my kids hair after shampoo to deter the little critters. Also coconut oil used for moisturizer and cooking, orange oil to clean my wood floors.... All these things I can use for multle purposes! I love this site and thank you for posting this recipe for scabies. Who would of knew? Coconut oil, tea, tree, orange oil, borax, Sulpher soap.... So easy and effective.
WORKS! My twins had scabies from the day care weeks ago and we learned Permethrin is not what I want to expose my bpys to. So I researched on the Earth Clinic website and found this recipe but I changed it a little. 1. Wet skin with natural hand sanitizer made with Thymol extract)
2)first layer with ORANGE OIL
3)second layer raw organic COCONUT OIL.
4) third layer TEA TREE OIL (now brand)
5) within 5 minutes the scabies literally crawled out by the hundreds (scary),
6) leave oil mix on skin for at least 30 minutes,
7) soak in shower and watch the mites run down the drain, and wash with Sulpher soap. 8) disinfect entire home with 1 percent hydrogen peroxide spray and Borax solution (can also spray skin with this). Use borax to spindle on carpet and then vacuum a few days later. 9) Rinse and Repeat
10) RELAX! ... Please follow these 10 easy steps and soon you will be posting the good news. Like I did for twin boys! No more scabies! Yaaaeeeeeee and my boys are safe from pesticide toxicity!

To get rid of mites from the home, you must be religious about vacuuming everyday; tile and carpets. Laundry everyday in hot water and highheat drier.
Use African black soap on body and hair. Will kill the eggs and the mites instantly. First few times you lather up your skin will feel a burning sensation where there are openings on your skin. There will be a major 'dry-off' of the areas infected on your skin. First time you use the soap you may want to pause from using it again for a couple days. As your skin heals and mites disappear, you can use it daily. Use a shea butter based lotion daily. You will feel relief right away. You will sleep better right away. Check with med professional before using on children.
Good luck and God Bless.
Scabies - I have 90% relief using amber colored Original Listerine, not the blue listerine. After shower, put on gloves and apply listerine all over. Keep out of eyes. But can use on face. Air dry or blow dry, then take half a lemon, apply all over, let dry. Then apply coconut oil all over. Try to do this 2x day.
Scabies: Andrographis paniculata internally as tea or tablets. Very good. Hemp oil with vinegar.
You must you must treat the whole household and clean everything including clothes shoes etc.
I tried ___ bodywash, an antibacterial soap. It helps with any skin condition like scabies, acne, any sores that spread on body. I am unsure what I have but resembles scabies & sores people get with fibromyalgia that sometimes itch & burn & spread. What antibacterial ___ does (may be other soaps as well like safeguard my mom says helped for shingles) is peels off the swelling/sores & they are gone. Unfortunately they will come back if you dont treat with a chemical free remedy. U can do a google search to find out where to buy an inexpensive cure.

In ruling out what could be causing the terrible itching that I've had for the past month I came across this website two nights ago. I was sure that I had seen Apple Cider Vinegar mentioned as one of the cures but after going thru three pages of posts tonight was unable to find Apple Cider Vinegar mentioned in anyway when talking about scabies. Does anyone know how it might be used for a cure? Have used the borax, peroxide soak three times so far and still itching almost if not as bad as I was when I realized I have scabies and have had a new outbreak in the last few minutes.
Please get bitter melon or bitter gourd. You can find the pills at your local health food store or online (Amazon). You can find the fruit at Asian markets and juice it. This worked for me when all else failed and I had tried EVERYTHING. I had it all over my hands for close to a year and had practically given up but continued to do research and found bitter melon which is known as the scabies fruit in some foreign countries. As the name implies it is very very bitter and I am sure that it makes our bodies not a good host for the scabies parasite. They do not like the taste of it. Take it as directed.

It all started when my boyfriend came home very itchy! We had two months in to our new apartment, also bought a new bedding set, new comforter set, NEW EVERYTHING! We thought perhaps the itching was brought on by dust, chemicals from his job, or something so simple as dry skin. Sadly, we were wrong! This is where our worst living nightmare came to life. The scratching got so bad and the most scratching happened when we were in bed trying to sleep and that never became possible. We would finally be able to sleep when our eyes couldn't take it any longer! In the morning is when we noticed the most bumps on my boyfriends rear and in between both our thighs. Two whole weeks went by, I would wonder to the store at night when the itching was unbearable because we both felt things crawling in a sense. SO I HAVE TRIED IT ALL! Cortizone creams, Cortaid sprays, Zyrtec Allergy pills, Benadryl. NOTHING over the counter got rid of this awful itching. Finally it came down to a night where I was so frustrated and spent hours in an emergency room to find out what my hubby and I had. SCABIES was the first word the doctor said! Thanks to Google, I later found out what this horrible parasite was. Sleep was out the window for sure! The doctor prescribed Permethrin cream. Shit sucked! Tried it twice and still nothing. So don't even waste your time with these doctor visits. One doctor prescribed me with Eurax 10% Lotion which was only available at one Rite Aid pharmacy for the price of $400! Crazy right, and no I didn't buy. Wasn't going to throw more money away for something that might have came back to haunt me.
So thanks to all the research online, I came across here. Read everyones stories and let me tell you, I know how it feels to have these disgusting things crawling around in your skin. It's mortifying and I will ever be the same.
When I came home from the first doctor visit I rushed to have everything washed in HOT water. I began to start washing piece by piece every single clothing we had and that became impossible. So now we have collected only a few pieces of clothing that we can wear over and over after washing over and over, manly pj's because we have been confined to these apartment walls. Every other piece of clothing and blanket I put in plastic bags tightly sealed and in front of the sun. They have to be on the skin to survive right? In those bags they will stay for a week so they can die completely!
I started up my bath and dropped a cup of bleach with the hottest water our bodies could take, following with sitting in there for a good 15-20 minutes. Washed our bodies with Sulfur soap and a all natural lavender soup to rinse off with. And when we got out we lightly dried ourselves and again rubbed some more bleach and water mixer, applying more amounts in the places where we both needed the most. I slept through the night for the first time in a month after doing this. Minor itches here and there, yes. The results are there, BLEACH is the cure for these things. Constant day to day cleaning of everything in your home and everything you touch. We washed and cleaned the carpets as an obsession that maybe they were all over the carpet. Now everything I clean I wipe down with bleach!
At first I found all of this very tiring but it's a routine one literally has to make part of their life to get rid of this condition. I have never came across with anyone besides my boyfriend and myself who has experienced this and I don't ever wish it upon anyone!
Right now we are going through the baths and constant cleaning to fight these off and little by little I know these suckers will give up with my "bleaching baths," as I like to call them.
I hope this is helpful to some like it was so very helpful to me! Many good lucks go out the the people experiencing this and trying to find ways to get rid of these suckers. Above all have faith that things will get better and that this will pass:)

My husband and I have been suffering from scabies since early November. We got a couch from some family and within a few days of bringing it home noticed we were breaking out and itching bad. Neither of us have ever had them before or known anyone who had them. We finally broke down and went to the doc. They prescribed the cream for both of us but unfortunately couldn't afford it as we have no health insurance. I started searching the Web and tried everything possible and nothing worked.
Finally tonight I gave up and we tried the bleach and peroxide bath. I put 1 cup of bleach and 1/2 cup peroxide in a full tub of water as hot as I could stand it. As soon as I sat down I felt instant relief. The itching stopped immediately and I could feel my skin no longer feeling like I have things crawling all over me. I soaked for 20 min then got out and air dryed. I have also used the same amount in a spray bottle and sprayed all my furniture and bed.
Will continue to do this and hope they go away.
Bleach and Hydrogen Peroxide Soak
I contracted an itchy rash from the man I had been seeing for the last 6 months. He travels quite a bit for work and he became symptomatic before me and the doctor said it was contact dermatitis. But that doesn't spread to others. After I started itching, I realized the doctors were wrong. But then couldn't find anything until this website. The fact that people were so frank and not scared to say... this worked for me.
Tonight is my first attempt at the Bleach/Peroxide bath and this is the first I have not wanted to peel my skin off in days. After the bath I took a hot scrub shower, and then sprayed myself with a water/bleach mix(4/1) and dryed with a hair dryer. Then slathered in tea tree oil.
I hope that everyone tries this. INSTANTLY better. Now begins the battle of cleaning, cleaning, cleaning!
But thank you to everyone who shared an alternative to doctors and pesticides.

So thankful I found this site. In 2021 this regimen of bleach/water still works. Particularly on page 2. I would add to use veterinarians formula antiparasitic/antisebhorrahic shampoo and lime sulfur dips on the animals. Be very careful and make sure to dilute it, using just a paper towel around the animal's face. It's very toxic to their eyes/nose etc. Also, don't go in the car for 4 days so the mites die off. Take a bath in 2 cups of bleach, 1 cup hydrogen peroxide daily. Spray down with a 4:1 or 5:1 spray of water to bleach, whatever your skin can handle. Then use lotions with essential oils to rehydrate. I also got a prescription of metronidazole which is an antibiotic/antiparasitic. Lots of times Take good probiotics to counteract it wiping out your good bacteria.
I want to Thank this forum for finally getting my home back. My husband and I are completely rid of Scabies because of this forum.. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. Here is our story and what we did to finally rid our bodies and home from these relentless critters.
We tried the prescription creams and even took the pills that doctors prescribed and scrubbed my house and washed the linens every day, only to have recurrences every 4-5 days. After 3 failed attempts doing it the doctor's way finally I headed to the internet and found this website. I read all the different posts for what others were using and having success. I guess you can say I gathered a mix of treatments. Here is what we did to finally rid our bodies and home.
1) Wrap the mattress and box springs in plastic
2) Wrap the couch in plastic
3) Steam Clean the Carpets -- We added 1/4 cup Chlorine free bleach, 3 Tblsp Dr Bonners Castile Peppermint soap and Zep Carpet Cleaner to mix with our water. Not only did this actually do a better job on our carpets then the cleaner itself ever did, but our carpets were minty fresh.
4) Take the bed linens off the bed every morning and straight to the washing machine. Add borax with your detergent. Then to the dryer until completely dry, I ran mine for 2 cycles. Spray the plastic on the bed with 50/50 Cholorine free bleach and Water, let air dry.
5) If you have pets, bathe them with the Peppermint soap made into shampoo. Use a nit/flea comb to remove any eggs that they are carrying. No the scabies don't infect them, but they do provide them with rides all over your house.
6) Remove daily clothing in the bathroom and place them directly into a plastic bag to transport clothing and towels to the washing machine.
7)Bathe twice a day, make the water as hot as you can take. Add Tblsp of each -Dr Bonners castile Citrus, Tea Tree and Peppermint oil soaps to the Bath water and soak. Then wash with one of the castile oil soaps which ever one you choose for the day and shower off. Towel dry and spray entire body with a 50/50 mix of the chlorine free bleach and Water. Place towel in the plastic bag with the clothing you were wearing and off to the laundry.
8) vacuum carpets every day.
9) each day spray every room in your house from floor to ceiling (everything- walls, doors, cabinets, floor.. Etc. ) with a 50/50 mix of chlorine free bleach and water.
In 10 days and we were completely free of scabies from our bodies and home. I say 10 days because we were clear of any outbreaks in 5 days, but we kept up the cleaning regiment for another 5 days just to make sure we didn't have another recurrence in the usual 4-5 days when we were following the doctor prescribed methods.
You have to be completely ready to stay with the routine, if you decide that you are tired and don't follow through with the cleaning regiment, I promise you will be sorry. Just plan on starting over as though it is day one all over again. Trust me you can't win the battle if you aren't fighting.
Once again Thank you everyone for posting your remedies, I hope passing along our success story will help someone else. Please pay attention to your body because the chlorine free bleach and soaps are not for everyone and I wouldn't want anyone to have an adverse reaction if you have allergies or sensitive skin to any of the ingredients used, then don't use them, create a mix of your own that works for you.
Bleach and Water
We got mites from a dog we picked up. I used mostly bleach and a little hot water. I had the bleach as strong as I could stand it and sprayed it all over my body and let sit for five mins then washed it off. Word of advice - don't scratch while bleach is on you. It burns really bad if you do. Not bad if you don't scratch; it has a light sting to it but the next day I was seeing results. My daughter had it from head to toe and I sprayed her down let it sit on her skin for about five mins then had her get a shower. Same thing I saw results the next day. We did that for three days and it's gone.
