Essential oils are a great, natural way to deal with head lice. Oils such as peppermint, eucalyptus, nutmeg, clove, neem, and lavender oil will all work. However, tea tree oil is the most well-known for head lice treatment and is often found in commercial products. For a home remedy, add three to 10 drops of essential oil to three ounces of olive oil. Massage this into your scalp and leave for a minimum of 12 hours. Comb and shampoo twice.
