Back to School: Keep Unwanted Guests Away!
There is nothing worse than the children going back to school and all of a sudden the infestations of pesky headlice begin! Even though we are home educators, there are still the meetups with other home educated children, and other after school groups we go to, so you would think we would avoid this problem… However, I have found that the only way to avoid it, in a safe and gentle way for my children, is to use clove and melaleuca essential oils. In a nonclinical, experimental study in February this year (2016), researchers found that clove oil was an effective repellent for body lice – they really did not like that oil! And we all know that they also detest melaleuca, also known as tea tree!
So in our house, this recipe is essential for our Back to School regime… enjoy trying it out!
