Back to School! Hope you enjoy this video and recipe for my head lice prevention spray. The oils I have used are all doTERRA, high quality certified therapeutic grade Essential Oils. You could use just the Lavender and Tea Tree as they are both great for deterring lice, but the Geranium and Rosemary offer additional benefits for hair and scalp health. I find the geranium also balances out the smell of the tea tree.
When making products containing essential oils, it is important to use glass or stainless steel as the oils will draw the nasties out of the plastic.
Headlice Prevention Spray
100ml glass spray bottle
7 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil
7 drops Lavender Essential Oil
2 drops Rosemary Essential Oil
2 Drops Geranium Essentail Oil
Add oils to spray bottle then top with cooled boiled water, or distilled water.
You could add a touch of your conditioner if you wanted it to act as a bit of a detangling spray at the same time.
For the Treatment of Lice
To treat the lice you can simply use coconut oil with a few drops of Tea Tree Essential oil added. Smother your hair combing through thoroughly to ensure all of hair is coated, leave for about 30 mins, comb with head lice comb, then wash as usual.
This process should be repeated daily for at least a week.
