How to Get Rid of Head Lice in a Natural Way


The problem of lice and its eggs shows up every year within students in schools where these insects spread in heads. Because of its small size, it may be hard to get rid of it, but we can give you some natural ways as an alternative to chemical treatments.


Mixture of three oils

Put 30 ml of olive oil with 10 drops of original lavender oil and 10 drops of rosemary oil, then mix it together.  Get your hair wet, then put the mixture on it and rub into your scalp and hair. Leave the oil on your head covered with a shower or swimming cap for an hour, then wash it with normal shampoo.

Olive and lavender oil mixture

Add to 5 large spoons of olive oil 10 drops of original lavender oil; then mix it well . Put the mix on dry hair at night covered with a shower/swimming cap or a towel.  Leave the oils on your head at night, then you can wash it in the morning.

Lice shampoo for prevention

If schools announced having lice spread and your child hasn’t picked up the infection yet, you should take preventive actions by adding some drops of rosemary oil, lavender oil, tea oil or thyme oil to an amount of normal shampoo then wash your child’s hair . Leave the  shampoo a few minutes before washing, and by that you will protect your child from lice.

Obligatory steps

Clean your combs and brushes, and most importantly, you should wash clothes on 60 degrees C, but don’t forget to do the same for towels, bedsheet,s and any sheets or tools that were touched by the hair or body.  You can also put all of these in a closed sack for 10 days, since lice that don’t feed on blood will die.
