    Default preventing nits sprays/spritz ?

    I read somewhere (but can't find the Threads here) that to help prevent nits, people make up a spray/spritz of particular oils.. I remember tea tree oil is in it, just can't remember the rest.

    I use tea tree oil mixed with water on DD's hair and she hasn't had any all year despite numerous outbreaks

    I use water, tea tree oil and eucalyptus oil. I have been planning to put some lavender oil in as well but it is expensive. I spray with that spray and then coat over with hair spray. so far so good, despite there being a couple of outbreaks this year!

    LOL that's okay. Nits freak me out, so also want to avoid with my two girls.

    I spray on every morning after I have done their hair, enough to make it damp. I must say even though I can smell it when I spray it, I can't actually smell it on their hair. I also only was their hair one time a week on a Friday night. Their hair never looks dirty I must say.

    How much tea tree oil (& or Eucalyptus oil) do you add to a water spray bottle? I don't have school aged girls yet but would be handy to know as my niece quite often gets them from school.

    In about 1 cup of water I put 10 drops of each oil.

    Hope that helps!
