Get Rid of Lice with Essential Oils

LICE


If Lice Settlements have been reported in your school or work environment:
To prevent Lice: add 4 drops of Oregano oil to a mixture of 1 ounce apple cider vinegar and 1 ounce of water. Use as a hair rinse.
If a Lice Settlement chooses your head, to get rid of it:
1. Mix 20 drops of Melaleuca (tea tree), 10 drops of Rosemary, 8 drops of Oregano, 8 drops of Lavender, and 2 ounces of vegetable oil (fractionated coconut, grapeseed, olive, jojoba, etc.).
2. Apply the oil to dry hair, cover with a plastic bag or shower cap, and then wrap
your head in a towel.
3. After 1 hour, shampoo your hair without wetting it first to help remove the oil, rinse and
shampoo again. (If your head feels irritated before the hour is up go ahead and rinse out right away).
4. Lice eggs are very resistant, so repeat this treatment in a week and then again in 2 weeks to destroy any newly hatched lice.
In between treatments do a preventive hair rinse. Add the same number of drops as above to 1 cup of apple cider vinegar, shake the mixture very well then add ¼ cup of it to 1 cup of water and use this as your final hair rinse, making sure you rub it well into your scalp. Lightly rinse with water.
