Head Lice- Eeew!


It's that time of year again! The kids are back in school and head lice are looking to expand their territory. Most of the commonly available treatments are harsh and rather toxic. The best way to deal with lice is to discourage them from taking up residence on your or your child's head to begin with. Fortunately, this can be done safely and fragrantly!
These essential oils are suitable for people of all ages-
  • lavender
  • rosemary (should NOT be used during pregnancy)
  • lemon
  • eucalyptus
  • geranium
Pick one or two of your favorites and blend equal parts of each. Add 2-3 drops to the final rinse after shampooing or put a couple of drops in the palm of your hand and massage into the scalp and hair after washing. The oils add a subtle shine and a pleasant fragrance that lice just don't like!
