essential oils that can prevent head lice

Can Essential Oils Help Prevent Head Lice?

Head lice are a most unwelcome house guest that can bring a great deal of stress, discomfort, and embarrassment for them. Any parent would like to be able to prevent an infestation from entering their home, and it turns out that it may be as simple as using clinically tested essential oil products.

An essential oil is a concentrated hydrophobic liquid that contains volatile aroma compounds from a plant. These naturally occurring oils can be derived from the seeds, stems, flowers, bark and other parts of the plant. Essential oils have long been used for their natural healing properties and may be an effective deterrent against head lice. Their extremely concentrated odor works as a repellent, helping to prevent head lice infestation.

The use of natural products, with essential oils, to ward off head lice is a great option for parents. However, the best way to avoid irritation is to use a product that has been scientifically formulated and tested. While essential oils are completely natural, some may irritate and some can be harmful. Fresh Heads carries clinically tested essential oil products, including shampoos, conditioning sprays, and detanglers, which are scientifically formulated to help prevent head lice naturally. They are effective, safe, all natural, chemical-free, and smell great!

Some of the best lice-repelling essential oils used in our product line include:

Tea Tree Oil
Tea tree oil is probably the essential oil that is most commonly believed to effectively prevent head lice. It has antiseptic properties and a strong odor.

Eucalyptus Oil
Eucalyptus oil contains a menthol scent and has been shown to affect repelling insects including head lice.

Lavender Oil
Lavender oil has long been known to be a natural insect repellent. It has a strong, floral scent.

Rosemary oil, peppermint oil, geranium oil, cinnamon leaf oil and thyme oil have all also been shown to be effective at preventing head lice.
