Back-to-school Healthy Scalp Spray

It’s back-to-school season. And along with the joy of new backpacks, anxiety about new teachers and a fresh start comes a different kind of unique challenge…dun dun duuuuuuunnn….LICE.

All parents live in fear of their child bringing home a note with “…one of your classmates has been diagnosed with lice.” We all want to make sure that not only do our own children avoid the dreaded little bug, but also ensure we’re taking whatever precautions we can to prevent it in the first place.

We do have a wonderful, effective blend for this issue called Get ‘Em Gone, which you can also use in this DIY. But for the purposes of making this as quick and easy to make as possible, we created this DIY from oils you probably already have in your essential oil collection: Tea Tree and Lavender.

Why Tea Tree + Lavender

You already love Lavender and probably Tea Tree too. But for lice? I bet you’re wondering why we chose these two oils in this case. There’s a great reason! In 2010, a study was done on the effectiveness of essential oils to help ward off lice, specifically. It found that Lavender and Tea Tree essential oils killed lice in 97.6% of cases. That’s pretty effective!
