Essential oils are a great, natural way to deal with head lice. Oils such as peppermint, eucalyptus, nutmeg, clove, neem, and lavender oil can all have positive effects, but tea tree oil is a well-known natural lice treatment and is a common ingredient in commercial products. For a home remedy, add three to ten drops of essential oil to three ounces of olive oil. Massage this into the scalp and leave for a minimum of 12 hours. Comb and shampoo twice.
