While most school-aged children aren't a big fan of sharing, they do tend to share a few things including head lice. Yikes!
The thing is, lice can easily spread via head-to-head contact at school, in the gym, playground, slumber parties, camps, or even during sports. And telling your kids to consciously avoid such head-to-head contact is like telling the wind to stop blowing. Not gonna happen.
Instead, keep the nasty critters away using Plant Therapy's Get 'Em Gone blend! 100% natural, safe, and gentle to use on children ages 2-10, this blend is made up of pure essential oils known to soothe the scalp and relieve itchiness.
Instead of using harsh insecticide-fortified shampoo or over-the-counter treatments, try adding 7 drops to a teaspoon of shampoo and gently massage on their hair and scalp. Use a fine tooth comb to spread and let sit in the hair for 15 minutes. Rinse and repeat if necessary.
A DIY hair and scalp spray of 2% Get 'Em Gone and 1% Polysorbate or Solubol (emulsifiers) in 120ml of water should also help prevent those pesky cootie bugs! Just shake well, spray into your child's hair in the morning and leave in. The spray will last for a week in the fridge.
