This entry was posted on April 11, 2016 by admin
When it comes to head lice treatments, we are not afraid to admit that we believe we have the best product available on the market. Our ClearLice line of products is extremely effective when it comes to treating even the most advanced cases of head lice and this is because of the quality ingredients that we use in all of our products. One of the most important ingredients found in our products are essential oils.
Essential Oils in Head Lice Products
Essential oils are concentrated liquids that contain the aromatic compounds found in plants and they are called “essential” because they contain the essence of the plants from which they are extracted. One of the methods by which essential oils are obtained is by distillation although they can also be obtained by extraction, cold pressing and expression, amongst other methods.
The topic of essential oils for lice treatment is one that has been well-documented and researched; and as of today, essential oils are one of the most critical ingredients when it comes to head lice treatments. One of the reasons why essential oils are preferred over chemical-based treatments is because they have no side-effects and can be used on children of any age regardless of how bad their head lice problem is.
Another reason why essential oils have become so effective in the treatment of head lice is because they have been used for centuries by cultures all over the world in the treatment of a large number of health ailments. Take for example, one of the main ingredients found in our ClearLice products; Neem Oil. Neem oil has been used in India for over a thousand years in traditional head lice treatments. This vegetable oil is pressed from the seeds and fruits of the neem tree (an evergreen species endemic to India) that is one of the main components found in other cosmetic products such as soap, shampoo and lotions. However, one of the things that most people don’t know about Neem Oil is the fact that while it is completely harmless to humans, people in India have also been using it for a very long time as a natural pesticide in organic farming. After learning this, it is not difficult to see why we consider Neem oil to be one of the most important products used in our formula.
Another essential oil that plays an important role in the effectiveness of our products is Tea Tree Oil. This oil has been used for a very long time by tribes in New Zealand and Australia as a natural antiseptic for cuts, bruises and other injuries. The antiseptic properties of Tea Tree oil are well so well-known that a 2008 article published by the American Cancer Society highlighted its properties as an antiseptic that can be used as a topical application. As you may already know, head lice feed by drawing blood from our scalp skin, leaving tiny little bites that can become infected if left untreated. This is why we believe having Tea Tree Oil as a natural antiseptic in our products seems like an intelligent decision.
Our products also contain a healthy dose of Peppermint Oil; an extract obtained from peppermint leaves that has been used for hundreds of years as a natural antiseptic and known as a natural pest repellent. When used in combination with the other ingredients found in our ClearLice products, peppermint oil is a powerful pest repellent that will kill lice and nits within 24 hours without creating any unpleasant side effects in children or adults. In organic farming, peppermint oil is commonly used as a pest repellent against flying insects, ants, mosquitoes and rodents, which highlights its importance as a natural repellent and antiseptic.
As we can see, when we consider the effectiveness of essential oils, when used in combination with the other ingredients found in our products, it is not hard to see why our alternative natural lice treatment is much safer and more effective when it comes to treating head lice in comparison to some of the other popular prescription or over-the-counter head lice treatments which are simply not worth the risk or when compared against some home remedies like Listerine or mayonnaise which are simply not effective.
