There’s a lot of lice shampoo available on the market, but as you read through the pages on this site, you may find many of them have some undesirable side effects.
It is interesting to note, that lice are killed in a solution of just 10 % tea tree oil, and that some natural health advocates suggest using a tea tree oil shampoo and boosting it with just ten more drops of tea tree oil twice a week, in order to get rid of lice.
Lice shampoos may cause the skin rashes and burning because of not only their toxic chemical composition, but also the emulsification of the poisons and the removing of your skins natural oils that give you a measure of protection.
Some amazing compounds were found in the bark of the Paw Paw tree called annonaceous acetogenins, that are particularly effective for eliminating certain insects and pests that have become resistant to pesticides.
Through this research by of the Purdue Research Foundation Office of Technology Commercialization, a new product was developed and marketed as PawPaw Lice Remover Shampoo beginning in 2001. It was sold byNature Sunshine Products, and boasted some extra ordinary results in preliminary clinical trials.
The clinical trials of a Pawpaw Lice Remover Shampoo were first done with the test group of about 20 participants. In this test clinical study, the shampoo proved to be 100% effective in eliminating head lice! Through additional studies and tests the shampoo proved itself capable of removing lice and their nets when used according to label instructions.
In a final clinical trial and often mom formula for the Pawpaw Lice Remover Shampoo was created, and tested on group of about 16 participants. This final formulation showed itself to have a 100% effectiveness at removing head lice and nits.
Unfortunately, even though the shampoo was considered effective and safe it is no longer manufactured and so no longer available. However, we are making the recipe available to readers of www.teatreewonders.com. You are free to download and use the recipe, but please do so with the full understanding that it is for educational purposes and it is not a prescription for healing, treating, or curing any sort of illness, disease, or affliction. I have to remind readers of this in order to comply with federal regulations.

The skin is an amazing delivery system for many chemicals and medications, just take the recent introduction of so many weight loss and stop smoking patches as an example. This is why it is a potential portal for the introduction of cancer causing chemicals like malathion, permethrins, and lindane.
Lice shampoo can be bought at nearly any store or pharmacy when it contains pyrethrins or permethrins, but you need a prescription to get lice shampoo with malathion or lindane. The only exception to this might be in a pet lice and flea shampoo. No matter which product is available, the best use is always according to the label instructions only. Personally, I prefer a more natural solution to my health needs, whenever possible. I find that there are many types of herbs, essential oils, and even a few homeopathic remedies that have worked extremely well.
The home remedies that have worked, worked consistently, and the herbal and homeopathic remedies that have not worked were just as consistent. To me, this represents in my case a total lack of the so-called placebo effect.
Next time you see a pest control outfit out and about, ask them if they are required to post strict warnings whenever they use any of these three chemicals.
You will most likely find that they are under severe restrictions regarding not only use, but they are required to have a special applicators license to apply the same chemicals that you are encouraged to use on your skin.
Whenever they apply these same chemicals, they are required to use a respirator, gloves, and other protective gear. Why are we using this on our hair as shampoo? Read any label for malathion or pyrethrins at your garden and plants store and you’ll notice they recommend immediately removing all clothes used during application, and a thorough washing of all exposed areas of your body.
Buy a quality shampoo to use for lice, and as suggested above, add tea tree oil, thyme oil, paw paw extract capsules, and mix well, shampoo and leave it on for sixty minutes. Do this twice a week to get rid of the pests. You can also try working at it a little more by following the instructions on the home remedy for lice page.
