Head Lice — 4 Comments

  1. Yes, Melanie, head lice are very nasty. I wish it wasn’t so, but it’s a reality of life, especially in our schools today. Luckily, the right essential oils can make a big difference in stubborn head lice situations in a completely non-toxic way.

  2. I just tried using Tea Tree Oil full strength and it didn’t melt anything. The nits are still there.

  3. Debbie,

    The question is, what quality of Tea Tree Oil did you use? It’s very hard to know what essential oils are high quality and which are not, but one indication is the price.

    The low-cost oils generally have little real Melaleuca alternifolia in them. They are usually heavily thinned or nothing more than chemicals created in a lab. Read, “The Therapeutic Grade Essential Oil Difference” for more information.

    I’d say either try a higher quality oil, or try a different oil. One person had great success with lemon oil, others with some of the recipes listed above. But be sure to use quality oils (you can get the best on this website).
