lice home remedies
Lice are common parasites that infest the hair and are showing increasing resistance to over-the-counter treatments. Scabies, another microscopic mite burrows into the skin to lay its eggs. In the case of many OTC lice treatments the cure can be worse than the lice itself, causing more scalp irritation, itching and worse, overexposing kids to toxic chemicals. Natural treatments are gentle to hair and scalp while still being effective. Many essential oils work against against lice, and those that contain cineole are highly effective.
