"You have to be careful when buying tea tree shampoo," states aromatherapy specialist Motti E. cautiously, "a lot of them use that name for branding purposes, and don’t contain the necessary amount of tea tree oil to produce benefits."

What It Comes Down To

The US National Library of Medicine along with the National Institutes of Health recently published the effects of tea tree (a common plant in Australia) oil against Pediculus capitis (head lice) and its eggs. The results proved to be astonishing. Read the study here.

The tests involving tea tree oil were conducted over a six month period in France, and the conclusions proved that the effective use of tea tree oil treatment resulted in the death of all head lice within thirty minutes, and the abortion of louse eggs after a five day period. This revolutionary news can mean a common person who regularly uses a hair product containing the right quantities of Tea Tree can prevent an infestation more effectively than expensive prescription drugs and dermatological intervention.

How to properly use Tea Tree to prevent head lice

As a member of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the NCCAM (National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine) released a guide for the public including the benefits and safety precautions of tea tree.

Tea tree oil is most effective for this causes when derived from the right source and uses within a balancing formula which doesn’t interfere with the synergy between the natural compounds found within the oil.

"You have to be careful when buying tea tree shampoo," states aromatherapy specialist Motti E. cautiously, "a lot of them use that name for branding purposes, and don’t contain the necessary amount of tea tree oil to produce benefits. On the other hand, too much tea tree oil, like too much of anything, can produce harmful results."

Where to find the most effective Tea Tree oil products

In a recent interview, Motti E. recommended Maple Holistics Tea Tree Shampoo as a reliable source for safe and effective tea tree oil treatment in a shampoo form. Tea Tree is also known for its effectiveness against dandruff and other scalp ailments, and for those looking to protect their scalp, it is the most valuable quality in the hair care industry.

People pay more money than necessary for lice treatment, when the condition can be prevented through natural and healthy measures rather inexpensively. The combination of US lab research and experts in the hair care industry points highlight the importance of treatments such as Maple Holistics for a healthy, lice-free scalp.
