      The quassia is rubbed onto the affected parts of the body and not
      washed off for a couple of days. It has a bitter flavour and acts as
      a deterrent as well as a parasiticide. You may need to give a second
      treatment 2 - 3 days later if there is the possibility of eggs on the
      body that could hatch after the adults have been killed.
      Quassia is also occasionally used internally as a liver tonic, but
      there are probably better hers to use this way.
