The Magical Tea Tree Oil
Thanks for subscribing to our monthly tea tree oil newsletter.
My name is Jim Beane, and I guess you could call me a bit of a tea tree oil fanatic, ..... because I've been collecting, using, and studying herbs and natural foods since I was a boy. I think I read every one of Euell Gibbons books as a boy, and while I don't eat pine trees and their bark, I still love the outdoors, and all the plants and animals that have been provided for us.
I'll provide you with updates and news regarding tea tree oil and the tea tree wonders website on a monthly basis and maybe share a few secrets with you along the way ;-)
Did I say second? Yep.
As a lice treatment, tea tree oil may be one of the best! It rarely causes any skin irritation, is non-toxic, and readily available. You can go to nearly any pharmacy or drugstore and find tea tree oil, as well as at health food stores and herbalists. Keep in mind though, you get what you pay for. Never buy cheap tea tree oil, it's cheap for a reason.
If you can't find a source for the tea tree oil shampoo or nutritional stress support, contact me.
You'll also want to wash the clothes, bedding, hats and possibly the upholstery where the infected person has been. I can empathize with you, I used to help folks with this all the time when I ran a carpet and upholstery cleaning service.
Shampoo your hair while your soaking in the tub or shower. Use a high quality shampoo with tea tree oil.
Then generously apply tea tree oil to your hair and scalp, making sure to gently rub it in. The Tea tree oil will help to soften the hold the eggs and lice have on your hair. Remember, apply the oil generously! As the lice treatment is working, you may feel a little tingling on your scalp and a cooling sensation from the tea tree oil.
Step 3. Using the nit comb, Comb the oil through your hair, then let the tea tree oil stay there for ten or fifteen minutes! Wrap your head in a hot moist towel to fumigate the insects. As gross as it may seem, lice are related to ticks and other mites, and the oil helps to suffocate the live ones so you can easily remove them. Between the action of the oil and the thorough shampoo, you'll be killing off the lice.
After the 10 or 15 minutes, shampoo out the tea tree oil.
Step 5. Finally, you'll need to do a major house cleaning. All bedding, clothing, and possibly the upholstery will need a thorough cleaning. Again, I recommend you clean all your clothes and bedding with a high quality laundry detergent. we get ours from the same place that we buy our tea tree oil from.
Step 6. Consider some added nutritional support. We carry a fantastic stress pack that combines all of the herbs and vitamins to support your system in stressful times. I haven't heard of a family yet where at least one member wasn't stressed from a lice infestation.
It has been reported by some that a tea tree oil shampoo used daily can help to reduce or eliminate re-infestation, so if your children or loved ones are exposed to the same source of your first infestation, you may want to consider this lice treatment as a home remedy alternative health option.
