If you have school-age children, you know how bad and frequent cases of
head lice occur. An effective way of preventing your child from getting
them is to add about 10-12 drops of tea tree oil to the bottle of
shampoo or squirting shampoo into your palm and adding a few drops
directly to it. IF your child DOES come into contact with lice,
massaging tea tree or coconut oil into hair every day will help in
killing the eggs.
