I have used this treatment numerous times and it has never failed me yet.

Please note you will have to buy good quality essential oils etc but it will be cheaper than buying a solution from the chemists.

Treatment Add 2 drops of eucalyptus and a drop of lavender and geranium in a teaspoon of olive oil. massage the mixture into the scalp and leave for half an hour. Use a nit comb hrough the hair and then shampoo and rinse well.

Finall apply an antiseptic rinse recipe below to cover the whole of the hair and then let the hair dry naturally. You can repeat this daily but i found i only needed one go. You can also use this rinse as a preventative measure after every shampoo.

Antiseptic Rinse

2 drops each of eucalyptus, lavender, rosemary and geranium, 15ml of vinegar and 240 ml of water. Mix this solutions together and apply as stated previously.

Please note I have been known to leave the oils on all night if you can.

Essentially oils are very good quality oils and they last a very long time.

why would you want to cure headlice?
#2
Does that mean they smell it and die, do nits have noses?
neem oil does the trick too and only has to be on 30mins. and its also natural also

You did not state whether you found lice or just a nice smelling alternative.

The reality is here............TIME is the best investment to prevent this problem

The reason "nit nurses" were stopped was because it was not effective. No matter how long you inspect DRY hair, you cannot ever say you are clear, you are simply deluding yourself.

It is clear which children have a problem which is being neglected at home; those families are targeted and dealt with confidentially. Hopefully avoiding the stigmatisation of kids.

The only effective way to check hair is wet combing with a nit comb and any conditioner (tesco/asda 35p). If people did this with children's hair every week, it would greatly reduce the problem, although not eradicate it.

Should be done on all kids 4-11. Most of the time they will be clear but if you leave it for a few weeks, you might then have a headful which will take more TIME to solve.

Sadly, it is a normal part of primary school life. You cannot blame the school or other children

Please don't waste a GP's time with this. Not because they would see the problem as trivial but as you have all posted here, you have access to advice on the internet, a lot of families don't and it is them that need the help with this. Any pharmacist / nurse can give the same advice, if you need it.

"the smelly ramshackle family" might check their child's hair every week, who are we to judge? I have known many cash rich - time poor families who were unwilling to invest the TIME to check the hair because they did not believe the problem existed (until it was graphically pointed out to them). They then paid the nanny extra to deal with the problem :oops:

You have to train your kids from an early age that it is normal that their hair is wet combed regularly; otherwise you will be paying a small fortune in insecticides / alternative lotions.

It can be so traumatic for parent and child. Eventually it became a very useful bonding chat TIME . (4 daughters, very long hair - never cut because of lice problem). Just doubled the TIME that we had to invest. Many people are not willing / unable to do this and want a quick fix which might work in the short term only. As kids progress through junior school, their activities and games are not as close, so the incidence decreases as they get older

Lice do not have brains or sense of smell.

They do not make reasoned choices!

THERE IS NOTHING YOU CAN PUT ON A CHILDS HEAD TO PREVENT THEM (apart from a bathing cap every day!)

There are now thousands of web sites only too willing to offer a variety of products. You can spend your money on what you like but:-

Tea tree or any other oil WILL NOT kill lice, or prevent them.

If you use a certain remedy and your child never has another outbreak IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH WHAT YOU PUT ON THIER HEAD. Hair grows rapidly. Do you think stuff stays on the hair for months :w00t: Like most hair products, it goes down the plughole

The peak season for most outbreaks is Oct...New school terms, closer contact in families-colder nights). Opposite is true in the summer

Majority of parents who live in the working world do not have the time in reality to do hours combing conditioner through their hair I am just stating that I have found this a very quick and efficient way of treating headlice. And having four children I know what a problem they are. You are always going to get the minority who couldn't care less whether to treat lice or not.

you do not need time, combing your childs hair morning and night with a tooth comb or even a gentlemans comb will stop your child getting an outbreak, i bet most kids dont even know they have have a them, once the nits are damaged they cannot lay, you do not need to sit for hours to rid the problem, just combing everday will stop your child ever getting infested with them, prevention is the cure


to the op all the oils do is make it harder for the nits to latch on, and easier to remove like conditioner is
