When doing research about head lice treatments, you may come across some blogs about tea tree oil for lice. People have been using tea tree oil to suffocate lice for years, just like they’ve been using drugstore shampoos. The problem is, lice have built up a resistance to both. It’s not that easy to kill lice anymore. Tea tree oil can often be a great way to prevent lice because lice don’t like the smell of it, but it is not a good way to get rid of it because it will not suffocate them. Tea tree oil is safe when used in very small doses but can be damaging to a child’s hormones if used in large doses. Researchers have also link tea tree oil to some other damaging effects. Remember to only use a couple drops of it. What you put on your child’s head can be absorbed into their body.
Tea Tree Oil Doesn’t Kill Existing Lice And Eggs
Tea tree oil does nothing to a live lice infestation. The lice won’t die and it’ll be quite a pointless treatment. So, don’t try tea tree oil to treat head lice. It is not an effective treatment for existing lice; you’ll wind up learning the hard way if you don’t take our word for it. Sadly, lice are resistant to the active ingredient in tea tree oil.
Although tea tree oil can often be a great way to prevent lice, make sure to do your research about the potential side effects of it absorbing into your child’s scalp. Just because something is natural, doesn’t mean it doesn’t pose harmful effects.
