The Scabies causing parasite-Sarcoptes scabiei is a pesky mite with super resilient powers that can fend off most conventional mechanisms employed to uproot its infestation for good. Therefore, you must have heard it popularly being called the ‘seven year itch’. You are probably reading this page after trying numerous pharmaceutical and home remedies that have failed you. Read on to learn about natural methods that can restore your health and freedom!
Scabies needs to be promptly addressed because it is highly contagious and easily spreads. It can make you a pariah even amongst your own family. Moreover, it has been estimated that about 300 million scabies cases occur each year and lead people suffering from it to a helpless despair and depression.
Is there a Scabies Treatment?
Although, oral ivermectin and/or topical permethrin cream are touted as the best cures for scabies; the fact that both these treatments cause innumerable toxic side effects makes finding a more effective and safe cure imperative. Many feel that these pharmaceutical methods work temporarily and that the scabies infection returns in due time. These pharmaceuticals are toxic and should not be used repeatedly.
On the other hand, natural and home remedies have time and again shown potential in getting rid of scabies. In fact, there is ample historical, empirical and scientific data highlighting therapeutic properties of herbs and other natural remedies in this condition.
For instance, a clinical study testing a herbal preparation containing garlic, onion and lemon extracts, turmeric powder and camphor applied to lesions caused by Scabies daily for 5 consecutive days reported that the preparation took effect as early as the 3rd day after treatment and the treated lab subjects became free of mites by the 7th day and remained free of them for the remaining 90 days of observation. 1

10 Home Remedies for Scabies
The neem tree (Azadirachta indica) is one of the most revered herbs in Ayurvedic medicine. It is traditionally believed to possess analgesic, antiparasitic, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties. Several clinical studies have supported neem oil’s use in treating scabies. In an in-vitro experiment, 200 mg neem oil caused a 100 percent mortality rate on scabies mites after being exposed to the oil for four and a half hours. 2 Neem’s active constituents are also said to numb pain and relieve itching.
Biogetica doctors have blended neem with other natural ingredients in our Cutis cream and Neem karanjal lotion.
This is another important ayurvedic preparation that is lauded for its potential versatile properties. The oil is extracted from seeds of the Karanja Tree (Pongamia glabra) and is traditionally used for its antiseptic, insecticidal, anti-parasitic, and cleansing properties. The oil has also been tested for its role in fending off the scabies mite and it has been observed that karanja and neem oil form a synergistic combination that may assist in maintaining normal healthy skin.

Sulfur is a common homeopathic remedy and is traditionally used for a multitude of problems. It is commonly employed for itchy skin infections owing to its traditionally believed antiseptic and cleansing properties. In fact, 95 % of the patients enrolled in a study to determine efficacy, safety and acceptability of precipitated sulfur for topical treatment of scabies reported being clinically cured 7-30 days after cessation of ointment application, with no relapses or relevant adverse effects. 3
Biogetica’s HRS 200 Scabease formula is a homeopathic remedy that contains Sulfur in a synergistic combination with other effective natural ingredients.
This herb has been fervently studied for its immune boosting, antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory and protective properties. Several studies have highlighted its potential in boosting immunity against foreign invaders. Results of a pilot study evaluating 814 patients with scabies reported that 97% of the participants were found to be completely relieved of scabies after applying a paste of neem and turmeric for a period of 3-15 days. Moreover, no toxic or adverse reactions were observed. 4

Borax is a naturally-occurring mineral composed of sodium, boron, oxygen and water. Scientific research has indicated that borax possesses inherent anti –inflammatory, insecticidal, virucidal, and fungicidal properties. It is a potential antidote to fluoride toxicity, boosts immunity, promotes healing of wounds, regulates hormone production, and enhances memory.
We’ve added borax in our Skin Health protocol amalgamating it with other potent natural ingredients for added benefit.
Sandalwood is a reliable ayurvedic remedy known for its multifarious properties. However, it is best used for promoting and nourishing the health of the skin. Studies on this ingredient have highlighted that it is a natural disinfectant, possesses powerful antimicrobial properties, and helps in subsiding inflammation, skin redness and sore skin. Plus, it exerts a cooling, soothing and emollient effect on application.
Biogetica has ingrained this ingredient in its Freedom kit with HRS 200 Scabease Formula for its nourishing and healthifying properties.
Although clove oil has been popularly used as a traditional toothache remedy, phytochemical evaluations have identified analgesic, antioxidant, anesthetic, anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties in it. Clove oil’s active constituent eugenol has been studied for its inhibitory effect on the scabies mite. 5 It was reported that clove oil may be highly toxic to the mites killing them effectively in a short span of time.

It is also recommended for boosting immunity and maintaining healthy skin.
Cardamom has been added to our Freedom kit with HRS 200 Scabease Formula as an adjuvant to other ingredients in our kit.
Tea tree oil has been traditionally used as an antiseptic and anti-inflammatory. Many clinical studies have tested its effects as an acaricidal, antiparasitic, and emollient agent. It has shown to relieve burning, itching, inflammation, and scaling. A recent study highlighted that tea tree oil has a relevant spectrum of activity against the scabies’ mites with potential antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory, and putative anti-itch properties along with it also being an effective antipruritic that alleviates the itchiness of the skin and reduces the burden from a scabies infection. 6
