So I have already heard of some cases of head lice since the start of school. Head Lice is a complete pain in the butt not to mention the gross poison that is typically used to kill it. /get rid of it, but I can suggest a better holistic way of treatment.
When you put any products on your scalp, they are absorbed immediately into your body and into your bloodstream. Children are especially vulnerable to these products, and they are the group that most often picks up this dreaded bug.
I treat any issue our family may have with doTerra essential oils .
Essential oils are a non-toxic and safe alternative for getting rid of head lice instead of using the usual pharmaceutical solutions. Studies have shown that therapeutic grade essential oils effectively kill both lice and their eggs. Here are some ways in which to do so .
Infestations of lice can range from mild to severe. Listed below are a range of alternatives depending on the severity of the infestation. In any case it is important to identify the source and also to treat surrounding areas, clothing, bedding, combs, brushes and other potential locations the lice can be passed on to others.
Mild: Mix the following and apply to the scalp:
- 2-5 drops Melaleuca
- 2-5 drops Lemon
- 5-10 drops carrier oil
Let stand for at least 1/2 hour. Shampoo with good quality shampoo with 2-5 drops of Melaleuca added to a teaspoon of shampoo. Follow with the Melaleuca shampoos daily for the following week.
Moderate: Use the above protocol but modify with double the amount of Melaleuca and after the application cover the head with a shower cap for 1/2 – 1 hour.
- Follow this with a careful combing with a lice comb.
- Repeat daily until no signs of lice or nits are visible.
- Continue with Melaleuca shampoos daily for a minimum of a week.
Severe: Mix the following and apply to the scalp every night for a week:
- 10 drops Eucalyptus
- 5 drops Geranium
- 5 drops Lavender
- 5 drops Melaleuca
- 5-10 drops carrier oil (VCO)
Comb with a lice comb then cover with a shower cap for the night. Be careful to protect the eyes from any oils. Follow the next morning with a good quality shampoo with 2-5 drops of Melaleuca added to a teaspoon of shampoo.

Back 4 years ago my health started to decline I was exhausted and worn out and found myself enduring many health issues only in my mid 30′s so at this time I knew I needed something more than what doctors had to offer and was looking for a modern way of healthcare . I began to take my health and fitness into my own hands by working out effectively and eating organically as well as being introduced almost 2 years ago to essential oils !!! Not only was I sick often but my family was too. Children were always catching things and always run down so I knew that something had to change especially since we have not had insurance in several years now.
So one day a was searching the net and came across a blog post of a blogger I follow and she shared how she used essential oils to improve her families health so I was intrigued and wanted to learn more. I read tons of her posts until the wee hour of the morning and then I was sent to links with 1000′s of testimonies of how essential oils have healed many of many different things I was now excited. I went to the site and right away began ordering oils!!!
I started with these !!
I started with these three oils they all have great benefits. Let me start by sharing about Lavender this oil is all things calming . Common uses *Burns*Calm and relieves stress* Cuts and wound* Depression* Earache* Insomnia and much more. Next Lemon is all things Clean and Fresh I put this in my water daily one of my fav. oils. Common uses *Disinfect Living Areas* Dissolves synthetics in body* Gout* Insect Repellent* Sore Throat and much more. Finally we have one of my favorites Peppermint is all things cool and invigorating I wont be without this oil I have been a living testimony that this is great for headaches and tummy aches and aides in diarrhea and these common uses; *Allergies/Asthma *Cold and Flu Season* Fever* Headaches* Indigestion* Menstrual Problems and more .
I was shocked to see these work as they have I am a huge skeptic of things like this and when I started seeing results I was so surprised and excited so of coarse I am now using many more oils than just the three I have mentioned and am also now so passionate about these oils and their benefits I am now an Independent Consultant for DoTerra Essential Oils I wont be without them in my house!! After using oils for the last 2 years my health has improved dramatically and my kids immune systems have been boosted by leaps and bounds and are sick maybe twice a year now instead of dozens of times and when they are sick I am able to treat at home saving tons of money and the duration is nothing as it was before.

Coconut oil is being talked about all over the internet these days so is it truth or trend to what is being said on internet space??
I can try to shed some light on the coconut oil dilemma.
I use and LOVE the one in picture above I have found it to work the best for my family
Virgin (unrefined) coconut oil (VCO) is a bit different from other oils:
- It is 92% saturated fat, compared to the saturated fat in other products: olive and soybean oils (about 15%), butter (63%), and palm kernel oil (82%). For further comparison, the fat in beef is about 50% saturated fat. Now don’t start freaking out thinking coconut is already a foe. Just wait…
- It contains a high percentage of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), whereas other oils are made up of long-chain triglycerides (LCTs). Without getting too deep into the science end of things, here’s why one researcher says this is important: “MCTs are transported directly from the intestinal tract to the liver, where they’re likely to be directly burned off as fuel and raise the metabolic rate slightly.”
After some research, here are some interesting things I’ve discovered about VCO:
Besides including VCO in your diet, it also has some other uses:
If you decide to cook with coconut oil, it’s important to know which form (virgin or refined) is best. According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, VCO is best for baking or medium-heat sautéing (up to 350*), if you’re looking for a bit of a tropical flavor, as a substitute for shortening (VCO has no trans fats), or as a vegan replacement for butter. Refined coconut oil can be used for medium-high heat sautéing or stir-frying (up to 425*). VCO is also often used by candy makers because it doesn’t go rancid quickly. New to baking with coconut oil ?? I will share over the next few weeks some of my cooking tips with coconut oil as well as a few others I follow
So for me Coconut oil is GOOD but I will let you be the judge of it in your own way of living / lifestyle
Blessings until next time,
