To treat lice, there are times when all you need to do is use a lice comb to comb your child’s hair every morning and evening for three weeks, but most of the time you are going to want to treat with a product.

Need a lice comb? You can purchase our all natural exclusive lice killing products and tools online. You can combine the combing with some easy—although sometimes messy—home treatments. From tea tree oil to simple olive oil, there are numerous home remedies.

Smother the Lice!

Nearly all home remedies rely on some method to suffocate the lice. Using an effective home remedy is probably preferable to putting harsh chemicals on your child’s head. Here are some of the natural “suffocating” or “smothering” treatments that can work well if you follow the instructions.

It’s important to note that some experts believe that the combing does most of the work. The “suffocating” treatments just stun the lice and make them slower and easier to catch on the comb.

Essential Oil Treatment

A number of essential oils have been shown to be effective—along with combing—in eliminating head lice. (Please be careful to dilute the essential oils and never use them undiluted. Consult an aromatherapist especially if you have any kind of medical condition before using essential oils)
