What makes shnazzy Lice Prevention Spray effective?
Essential oils are rich in what are called monoterpenes, chemical compounds with various beneficial characteristics including, in the case of tea tree oil, insecticidal properties. The two major constituents of tea tree oil, 1,8-cineole and terpinen-4-ol, have demonstrated anticholinesterase activity, which is similar to that of over-the-counter chemical insecticidal lice treatments.
There have been many studies done on essential oils and their effectiveness to treating lice. The three most effective have been Tea Tree, Lavender, and Ylang Ylang.
At 1% concentration, tea tree oil killed 100% of head lice after 30 minutes.
#2: Lavender and Tea Tree Oils:
97.6% of lice were dead using these essential oils, compared to only 25% were dead from using chemical treatments.
#3: Anise and Ylang Ylang Oils:
92% success rate against head lice.
In my research I have also found Rosemary, Clove, and Peppermint to also be effective. I created a good balance of these essential oils to make a great lice prevention spray. You get a natural alternative for the lice battle and a great smelling head!
