Before I tell you how to get rid of lice, I want to tell you how to prevent them. Lice hate tea tree oil. If you have tea tree oil in your hair, on your clothes or other items the bugs will avoid you.
Therefore, you can mix equal parts tea tree oil with your favorite essential oil. Then mix the two oils in a large spray bottle. Fill the bottle the rest of the way with water. Spray hair, bedding, stuffed animals, carpets, clothing and backpacks with this mixture to ensure you and your children do not become victims of head lice.
If you do, however, get head lice,
You will need:
8 drops of Geranium essential oil
7 drops of rosemary essential oil
1 tablespoon of jojoba oil
Mix all of the ingredients together and massage all of the mixture into the hair before going to bed. Place a plastic cap on your head and then wrap with a towel. Leave the mixture on your head overnight. Repeat this process until all of the lice have died. This will kill lice, not the eggs, which is why it will need to be repeated.
As you can see, there really is nothing that cannot be cured, healed, or relieved by using essential oils. From something as simple as a sunburn to something as dramatic as reducing your blood pressure, essential oils have the answer.
Many of us, with all of the ‘advancements’ of today’s pharmaceuticals, have forgotten about natural remedies such as essential oils for our health problems. While I am not a doctor and I do not suggest that you stop taking any of your medications, I do believe that the answers to our health problems will not be answered by filling our bodies full of chemicals. Instead, I believe that nature will provide a way, sometimes that way is essential oils.
