Flied Lice?

Natural Treatments
for Head Lice


When I was growing up, my mom made us believe that head lice was something to be ashamed of, like bed bugs or such horrific little vermin. I remember going to the movie theater, and she would bring a special towel to put behind our heads on the seat backs!  

But once we moved to the country we learned that sometime head lice just comes with the territory.  In fact, as I write to you tonight, I am told that if you  have school aged children, chances are, at least one time you may indeed come face to face with this pesky little problem.

Doo Do Do Doooooo!    Aromatherapy to the rescue!  Why douse your child with unecessary chemicals yet again?  Nature's pure essential oils have the remedy,  and we have three recipes just for you!

Recipe #1


3.38 oz or 100 ml vegetable oil
10 Drops Eucalyptus Essential Oil
20 Drops Rosemary Essential Oil
20 Drops Lavender Essential Oil
10 Drops Geranium Essential Oil




Measure out your oils, and funnel into a dark glass container or plastic PET bullet bottle.  Add the prescribed drops of essential oils and shake well to distribute.  Apply this oil mixture to WET HAIR! This will help you in being able to shampoo out the oils when the treatment is over. Massage the mixture deep into the scalp and make sure to have it thoroughly cover the hair. Put on a cap, like a shower cap, or even plastic bag. Leave on 3 hours, and then shampoo your hair thoroughly.


Be sure to remove any dead lice and nits with a fine toothed comb or lice comb, and repeat this same treatment twice more at three day intervals.


Recipe #2


Head Lice Bug Buster Treatment
1 drop Eucalyptus essential oil
1 drop Lavender essential oil
2 drops Tea Tree essential oil
Blend with 1 tblsp (15ml) Sunflower oil and massage into the scalp. Cover with a plastic shower cap and leave on for an hour or overnight. Shampoo out the next morning - rub the shampoo in before adding water to get rid of the greasiness of the oil. As a preventative measure add 2 drops of Tea Tree oil and 1 drop of lavender oil to 1 tsp of mild shampoo and use to shampoo hair.


Recipe #3



Add ten drops of each of the following essential oils to an empty two-ounce bottle:
  • lavender
  • eucalyptus
  • rosemary
  • peppermint
  • tea tree
Then, fill to the top with a carrier oil, such as apricot kernel, jojoba, almond, or even the olive, peanut or safflower oil that you cook with! Cap the bottle, place it between your palms, and roll back and forth between your hands for several minutes to combine. (It is a good idea to repeat this before every use.) To apply, add a few drops of this mixture to a cup of water. Rinse hair with this mixture every night, massaging into the scalp, to relieve itch, kill lice, and reduce your risk of future infestation.
Now, off to make one of these recipes; my friend has 4 very vivacious little boys who like to play outside in the dirt, and she asked me to mix her up a cocktail to treat their heads!  Should you need some relief, please don't hesitate to contact me through my shop or within!
I have quantities of pure natural essential oils just waiting to serve you!  It would be my pleasure to provide you with safe, natural alternatives to dangerous chemicals for your precious children!  It's just what we do!

Have a fantastic evening, dear friend!  And a wonderful day tomorrow!
