Native Americans are known to have used Cedar boughs to repel fleas, ticks, and lice, while Eucalyptus and Bergamot are very fragrant oils that are quite useful in 'masking' the alluring scent of an animal- human or otherwise.
This blend can help in preventing the spread of lice in your school aged children and into the home. Add one drop to a hair-tie, 6 drops into your shampoo or conditioner, or make a blend of 2 drops of Feeling Lousy with 1/4 tsp of a light carrier oil and use one drop of the blend to spread between the palms and rub onto the hair.
Cedrus deodora (Cedarwood), Melaleuca alternifolia (Tea Tree), Eucalyptus radiata, Citrus aurantium bergamia (Bergamot).
My favorite is the 'Feeling Lousy'. I take it wherever I go just in case my kids start feeling a little sick, it works like a charm. I brought it with me to Europe, and it has come in very handy when going to a doctor or a pharmacy would be almost impossible. - Rocheal
