Eugenol found in clove oil has demonstrated significant potential for clinical trials to help fight against permethrin-resistant scabies mites (Sarcoptes scabiei). In vitro studies have shown eugenol and clove oil to be toxic to scabies. The levels demonstrated suggest that it is even more toxic than benzyl benzoate (a widely used topical acaricide for treating scabies).
Clove essential oil and the eugenol found in it has been shown to have toxic effects against a wide variety of protozoa. Making the protozoa unable to replicate and sustain themselves, thus eliminating them. (citation: 7)
