I heard that Neem tree is used agains head and body lice as well as scabies.
I don't know exactly, but I think the fruits are used. Maybe somebody here
knows more. This tree is used to make an insecticide, and is traditionally
used in India against lice and scabies mites. I heard it is very effective.

The tree comes from India, but it also grows in Africa and probably
elsewhere (unfortunately not here in Germany).
