5 out of 5 stars

20% orange oil (Citrus Sinensis is the non-phototoxic citrus variety)
15% Dr Bronners
10% sublimed sulpher
55% generic lotion

apply liberaly from chin and back of head from within the hairline, down to soles of feet 5 nights straight. hit your eyebrows and bearded areas too.

repeat this process every other week if itching persists until itching is gone (you have to understand how to clean your environment also)

natural, inexpensive and soothing. this worked for me and was like a miracle. good luck!

ps i tried alot of the others to no avail. i found this recipe and good instructions for cleaning at scabies-cure.net


Orange Oil

a friend of mine had scabies and came in my house to tell me about it and even sat on my bed!!! (before she told me LOL)

she had welts everywhere and she had been scratching for days and it looked very uncomfortable!

i told her to try orange oil added into her bath water and also to make a mix in spray bottle of about 50 drops or so for 16 ounces of water.

she came back and told me that it had worked!!!

now she only came to me after she had been to the doctor twice and used the prescription creams and they didn't work - but the orange oil did.

WARNING: do not go into the sun after applying the orange oil - it photosensitizes skin (makes it easier to burn) so it may be better to use it at night which is what she did.

also, keep orange oil away from MALE pet rats. the limomene in it can cause them to develop tumors in later life supposedly.

orange oil is very cheap also and it smells good! although after using it for a while you may get sick of smelling the orange smell.

oh - and i immediately did and orange oil bath and sprayed the same mixture of orange oil all over my bed and in my room and had not scabies trouble myself!!!
