How to get rid of lice using Essential Oil's!

So it's that time of year... LICE. Those nasty little booger that come home with your kid's from school.. hard to get rid of.. and just down right nasty! (Yes I know I said "nasty" twice)

You can easily get rid of and prevent head lice without using harmful chemicals!

What are symptoms of head lice?
It's pretty basic... itchy head. More sever cases can produce bites on the back of the neck or forehead.

What Essential Oil's can I use to get rid of head lice?

 Melaleuca (Tea Tree oil)

Lavender Essential Oil

Eucalyptus Essential Oil

Geranium Essential Oil

Pine Essential Oil

Thyme Essential Oil

Lemon Essential Oil

Rosemary Essential Oil

Apply to the feet to disperse throughout the body. And, dilute 50:50 (with a carrier oil) and apply one teaspoon to the scalp up to three times per day. Cover the head with a disposable shower cap and leave the mixture on for at least 30 minutes. Once the time has passed, then shampoo and rinse the hair and scalp well.

You can also apply the EO to a comb and comb through hair. Lice hate the smell of essential oils!
