Hair Lice Prevention

I just made this treatment for a girlfriend whose little one came home from school with a Lice Alert in the first week back, she has not had them yet but all her friends have. Anyway, a fabulous and inexpensive preventative treatment for Lice is ……….drum roll…………. rub a few drops of oil (almond, apricot, olive, jojoba) between your hands and then smooth over your childs hair. I made this one with jojoba, lavender, rosemary, west indian bay & virginian cedarwood. Put a little more on if they are going swimming as apparently lice can sit on the water, ewwww.
oh you can also put it through your own hair, it’s a lovely treatment, just use it sparingly. lol:)

    I`ve been told that headlice hate the smell of mouthwash, so I fill a spritzer with Listerine, and spray it on my girls` hair.

    I also comb some gel through their hair – it`s supposed to help.

    I`ve been taking these preventative measures ever since my older daughter had lice. It was a NIGHTMARE – took F-O-R-E-V-E-R to get rid of.

    yeah, it just doesn`t smell great for the kiddies. they have a much stronger sense of smell than we do. if you`re going to do something like that i would suggest Lavender as well or instead of.
