Thank you, Mother Nature, for essential oil therapeutic recipes. Thank you especially for essential oil formulae to eradicate, kill dead, and generally wreak thermonuclear havoc on head lice!
I have done both the bookwork and the first-hand research: My unfortunately exhaustive researches confirms that swift, decisive intervention with essential oils kills both head lice and motherly mortification. The essential oil therapeutic recipe takes approximately ten days to achieve its full effect, killing the creepy-crawlies and their eggs. The vodka in the formula, however, brings mom fast-acting relief. Everclear works even better.
Over-the-counter and prescription medications for (ugh!) head lice contain strong pesticides, which most moms really do not want on or around their precious children. But essential oil recipes combat those despicable, disgusting, and generally villainous little arthropods with deadly agents but without toxic chemicals. I wholeheartedly believe head lice mortify even Mother Nature her own self.
Therapeutic essential oil combats parasites and character assassination.The four carpool moms have studied this issue in some depth and detail. We recommend essential oil therapeutic recipes not only for quelling head lice but also for administration of justice. Whereas we recognize the measure of sweetly poetic justice in lice assaults on the haughty PTA moms’ hapless children, we see neither meaning nor justice in similar assaults on our own children. We tolerate the occasional bout of in-class projectile vomiting-difficult, yeah, but no reflection on a carpool mom’s love and homemaking. Ditto the occasional outbreak of explosive diarrhea. But head lice?! No way! The gossip spreads faster than the creatures themselves-and, just for the sake of perspective, remember, mother lice lay eggs daily. If we could send e-mail at the speed of head lice reproduction or PTA-mom gossip, we would have a truly monumental technological advance. Face it: nothing more mortifies a mother than pestilence on her child’s scalp, because those evil PTA moms immediately turn the outbreak to a reflection of our hygiene and where we went to college.
As we said before, then, thank you Mother Nature for wonderfully effective essential oil recipes to kill head lice and permanently protect against their return.
Essential oil therapeutic biochemistry…Two or three mouse-clicks will take you to proven essential oil remedies for head lice. All the recipes combine powerful plant extracts with hardcore grain alcohol-a nice mix, we think. The alcohol acts as a catalyst for the essential oils, making both eggs and live lice more vulnerable to the oils’ action. The plant products all contain heavy concentrations of aldehydes, ketones, oxides, and phenols. Lice quiver just at the sound of those active agents.
Especially make sure your recipe contains geranium, because that innocent-looking little potted plant kicks it on pathogens and parasites. Geranium oil contains linalyl acetate and beta caryophyllene, both of which protect your child’s scalp from irritation, inflammation, and therefore itching. More importantly, they inhibit fertilization of the eggs. Best of all, however, geraniums come power-packed with citronellol, the name of which you may recognize from your anti-bug sprays and candles. Would-be multi-legged invaders hate that stuff.
In chemical analysis of essential oil therapeutic geraniums, eponymous “geraniol” reveals it superpowers: It actually has an “official” clinical history to certify its “antiproliferative properties” in cancer patients. In other words, geraniol stops cancer cells dead in their tracks, boosting patients’ immune systems as they complete chemotherapy. If the stuff totally dominates cancer, just imagine what it can do to those head lice! But wait, there’s more! As you deploy your lice-killers, you can rehabilitate your reputation as a mother worthy of abject veneration: Drop this one on your PTA antagonist, “I never would expose my children to those carcinogenic pesticides! OMG, no! I use clinically proven geraniol in my essential oil therapy for Phthiraptera.” Carpool moms rule!
