About the Recipe


  • Pine oil or Eucalyptus oil

  • Fine tooth comb

  • 1 pair disposable gloves


  1. Both pine oil and eucalyptus oil have both been used to remove lice and nits from hair. Both oils exhibits antimicrobial properties and anti-fungal.

  2. Shampoo hair thoroughly and rinse completely. Massage choice of oil into hair and pay special attention to scalp, hairline and nape of the neck, and around the ears. Take your time with the massage.

  3. Rinse completely and use nit comb or a fine tooth comb by taking small amounts of hair and starting at the base, comb out completely to the end.

  4. Thoroughly rinse comb and make sure all lice/nits have been removed and repeat until the entire scalp has been covered.

  5. Wash hair again and blow dry. Check again for any remaining nits or lice.

  6. Repeat as often as needed until all traces of the lice or nits are gone.

Another way to get rid of lice and nits is by applying perm solution. As odd as it sounds, perm solution is often used to remove lice and nits very effectively, but be warned that it might straighten your hair.
