Here is list of oils for LICE: Eucalyptus Radiata, Lavender, Peppermint, Thyme, Geranium. A blend to use is: 4 dropsof Eucalyptus Radiata, 2 drops Lavender, 2 drops Geranium. Dilute 50-50. Apply 1 teaspoon to scalp. Massage entire scalp. Cover with disposable cap. Leave for 30 minutes. Shampoo and rinse well. A good rinse is: 2 drops of Eucalpytus Radiata, 2 drops lavender, 2 drops Geranium, 1/2 oz Vinegar, 8 oz water. Mix and shake. Pour over hair throughly. Repeat daily until lice and eggs are gone. Dry naturally. Recommended to do over a sink as the lice and eggs could cling to other body hair. I recommend the therapeutic grade oils from Mountain Rose Herbs. It may be an expense at first but they will last a long long time. The oils will be good for many things. If you use Young Living Oils, they are good as well.

Thanks...going to try this on my daughters hair, they are so hard to get rid of, I treat her hair all the time but she is always getting them because other parents don't treat their's so frustrating.

I have 5 children and I did use lice shampoo years ago on my kids and it was a waste of money it didn't even kill them, I now use rubbing alcohol, it works brilliantly I just put it at the roots and cover the head with cling wrap, leave for 20 mins and wash out, kills every last one, then repeat 3days later, and then I just spray their hair daily with tea tree and water in a spray bottle to keep them away.
