Lice have been an annoyance to humans since ancient times. Lice also seem to prefer children to adults, so often parents receive the dreaded call from their child’s school…"Your child has lice. Please come pick him/her up immediately." Doubts go through the minds of moms – “do I wash my child’s hair often enough? Do I need to vacuum the house more often? Is the whole house infested with this pestilence now? Should we move house?”.
Swift treatment of the infestation is required in order to stop the spread of lice. However there are often concerns about lice treatment products that contain potentially harmful insecticides such as Gamma Benzene Hexachloride and the long-term toxicity of these ingredients that could be caused by frequent use thereof.
There is now a natural treatment available on the market that uses pharmaceutical grade tea tree oil to rid victims of their lice, namely the Treet-It Tea Tree Oil Complete Anti-Lice Kit. This kit is manufactured by Reitzer Pharmaceuticals and contains no harmful chemicals, is free of Gamma Benzene Hexachloride, is non-toxic, free of pesticides and is safe and easy to use.
Tea tree oil has been used for centuries by the Aboriginal people of Australia and has wonderful properties known to fight a number of ailments. Therefore is an excellent natural remedy for hundreds of bacterial and fungal skin disorders such as acne, abscess, oily skin, blisters, sun burns, athlete's foot, warts, herpes, insect bites, rashes, dandruff and other minor wounds and irritations. It is distilled from the Australian plant Melaleuca Alternifolia, which is part of the Eucalyptus family. Treet-It is a range of therapeutic products that are manufactured using tea tree oil.
Tea tree oil is safe and is very effective in getting rid of head lice. It coats the shaft of each hair follicle, making it difficult for the nit to stick to it. The aroma of this essential oil makes the hair an unwelcome place for lice to live and lastly the active ingredient, Terpinoel, helps to repel lice and nits.
Other advantages of using the Treet-It Tea Tree Anti-Lice Kit is that it has a preventative spray to prevent re-infestation, is cost affective and is safe to use on infants and children and can be use on a regular basis.
The Treet-It Tea Tree Oil Complete Anti-Lice Kit contains an Anti-Lice Treatment Gel-Cream, Therapeutic Shampoo, Anti-Lice Maintenance Spray and a Fine Tooth Nit and Lice comb.
