A question has come forth concerning a safe and chemical-free way of eliminating head lice. This is a condition which usually affects children first, but then often spreads throughout the household – and there a safe and effective means of dealing with these pests. It is very important to continue the treatment daily until all of the eggs are gone as well as the lice.

The following protocol is from Essential Oils Integrative Medical Guide by D. Gary Young, ND.

TREATMENT BLEND

  • 4 drops Eucalyptus Radiata
  • 2 drops Lavender
  • 2 drops Geranium

Dilute 1:1 with pure vegetable oil. (For every drop of the blend, use 1 drop of vegetable oil.)

  1. Massage into entire scalp
  2. Cover with plastic (bag or wrap)
  3. Leave on scalp for at least 30 minutes
  4. Shampoo and rinse well

BLEND FOR FINAL RINSE

  • 2 drops Eucalyptus Radiata
  • 2 drops Lavender
  • 2 drops Geranium
  • ½ ounce vinegar
  • 8 ounces water

Mix in container with lid. Shake vigorously. Pour over hair, making sure every strand is rinsed.

NOTE: This should be done leaning over bathtub or sink as lice can cling to body hairs

Dry naturally.

REPEAT DAILY UNTIL LICE AND EGGS ARE GONE
