word lice with no symbol over it

You know what’s really lame?

Like really, really lame?


Lice are really, really lame.

When I was a little girl, my sister and I brought home a head full of lice that someone at our school was kind enough to share.


I don’t know about you, but I’m willing to do anything and everything to prevent that from ever happening again.

Pretty sure this back to school tip is at the top of importance at every house.

Lice is becoming a HUGE problem in schools. Once it gets started, it is very hard to get it under control.

The best way to avoid having to deal with it at all, is to make the lice not want anything to do with your child in the first place. Lice don’t like lavender, tea tree, rosemary, or peppermint. Obviously, lice are REALLY lacking intelligence. Who doesn’t like lavender, tea tree, rosemary or peppermint?!?

This spray used daily in the morning as a preventative is going to be your very best friend.

2 oz glass spray bottle (can buy right off amazon)tin vase with flowers and blue glass spray  bottle
10 drops lavender
10 drops Tea Tree
5 drops Rosemary (can sub peppermint)

Add drops of oil to spray bottle then fill the rest with distilled water. Shake it up before each use. Every morning before school, spray liberally to hair and comb through. Should be applied to hair, neck, backpack and clothing (especially bulky winter clothes).

Um, hi. How easy is this?? AND your child(ren) will be free of pests and smell wonderful, too!

Also, you can also add several drops of Tea Tree to your child’s shampoo. Good for the scalp and bad for the lice!

So, don’t wait until it’s too late. Make this bottle today. Comment below “Done!”
