Essential Wholesale & Labs Offers Natural Solution for Head Lice

Portland, Oregon (PRWEB) November 15, 2013

Essential Wholesale & Labs offers ingredients and recipes for a two-step, Neem oil based at-home natural remedy for head lice. Harsh chemicals are not appropriate for every child so many parents look for natural alternatives to traditional over-the-counter insecticidal shampoo.

“Head lice infestations are quite common. According to the Center for Disease Control,” says Laura Badcock, general manager, “between 6 and 12 million infestations are reported every year. In my experience, neem oil can be an effective, non-toxic solution.”

Neem oil is a gentle, non-irritating, fully biodegradable product with the moisturizing and anti-bacterial properties which promote improved scalp health. Neem oil is a natural botanical whose components include effective insect repellants such as salannin, nimbin, melantriol, and azadirachtin. Neem oil derivative products are so effective they have gained wide spread use in certified organic farming as an alternative to chemical pesticides.

For a natural head lice remedy, Essential Wholesale & Labs recommends beginning with a hair oil made of one part neem oil, one part coconut oil, and one part olive oil. Coconut oil and olive oil coat and lubricate the hair shafts, loosening eggs and larvae, allowing the neem oil to affect the lice. Neem oil’s unpleasant smell can be disguised with 1-3% peppermint oil to make it more agreeable to your child. Simply work the oils into the hair and let sit for 10-15 minutes. Afterward, using a fine toothed comb, thoroughly comb out the hair. Follow this procedure with shampooing.

We recommend following the neem oil treatment with Peppermint & Tea Tree Hair & Body Wash. This aloe juice based shampoo is a gentle, foaming, and sulfate/paraben-free product that soothes and nourishes the scalp and hair.

While Tea Tree oil has been shown to be effective in repelling lice in many trials, no specific ideal dose has identified. However, doses between 5 and 10 percent are generally applied in trials. To increase the effectiveness of Essential Wholesale & Labs’ Peppermint & Tea Tree Hair & Body Wash add 4 oz of Tea Tree Oil to one gallon of wash.
