9. Pure Lavender Oil
Pure lavender oil promotes skin cell regeneration and kills parasites like mites that cause scabies.
- Add five drops of pure lavender oil to warm bath water. Soak in this bath water for at least 15 minutes. This will help soothe the skin and provide some relief from the itching. Do this once daily for a few weeks.
- Mix equal amounts of pure lavender oil and rubbing alcohol. Apply it on the affected area and massage gently so that it penetrates and saturates the skin. This will help kill the mites and their eggs. Do this twice daily to speed up the healing process.
Bleach is another popular home remedy for scabies as it helps kill mites.
- Mix together one part of bleach and four parts of water.
- Spray this solution on the affected area twice daily.
Repeat the process for a few days.
Along with these remedies, it is very important to avoid with an infected person and his or her personal items. Also, keep the surrounding area neat and clean to prevent the mites and scabies from spreading.
