Tea tree oil lice don’t like it. In this Italian study done in 2012 it was determined that tea tree oil had insecticidal and ovicidal properties when tested on head lice. The study also mentioned that ” The development of novel pediculicides containing essential oils could be, in fact, an important tool to control the parasitic infestation.”
We have certainly seen families who have tried to use tea tree oil on their children’s scalps to get rid of lice. However one mom we saw used 100% pure tea tree oil and it actually burned her kids scalps, so we don’t recommend pure tea tree oil. Pure tea tree oil is very strong and very caustic and can cause burns. Many families use sprays containing tea tree oil including couch spray and bed spray, however none of these products are necessary since lice are not on your couch or bed. So save your money and instead purchase the best lice comb we have ever seen The OMG Lice Comb
Tea tree oil lice. Any kind of oil will make your hair less interesting to head lice. Oil makes the hair difficult to walk on and to lay eggs on. In fact you use the OMG Comb with OMG Lice Solution to comb out the lice and nits. Why do parents try to put different kinds of oil in their children’s hair to kill lice? Because parents try the pesticide shampoos and their kids still have lice. Furthermore the pesticide shampoos do not work on lice.
Tea tree oil lice. You may be able to deter and repel lice while you treat an active head lice case with tea tree oil. Because tea tree oil, olive oil, baby oil, motor oil, any oil will make the scalp and hair difficult for a lice infestation to proliferate. However any oil, including tea tree oil, will not penetrate the nearly bulletproof nits or lice eggs. The nits have a hard shell encasing the growing baby louse, and nothing passes through the nit shell. Therefore the only way to treat lice is to comb with a good metal nit comb. What is the best good metal nit comb out there? The OMG Nit-Free Terminator Comb.
