Lice again! But turned into a spa day.

Sunday, February 26, 2012

I found out that we had the lice monster again! More laundry than I ever wanted for the next two weeks. I decided to make this fun by turning it into a spa day. Baby Oil is a natural remedy for head lice. We used nice smelling baby oil gels and rubbed that throughout our heads. Then the girls followed it up with a chocolate mask! We closed our eyes while we let the mask dry and actually felt relaxed! I am surprised to see the little wrinkles on my forehead diminish! My skin feels so soft! I decided to look up the recipe for homemade chocolate masks. It is surprisingly simple:

1/3 cup cocoa
1/4 cup honey (organic is better)
2 Tbsp heavy cream or sour cream
3 tsp oatmeal powder

mix it into a paste. put it on your face, avoid eyes.
Leave it on till dry.
wash away with warm water.

I also found a homemade remedy for pimples:
Honey and cinnamon mixed to a paste. dot it on the pimple and leave for 20 minutes. the next day it will be smaller. You can repeat it every day until the pimple is gone.

give these recipes a try and let me know how it works. I found the chocolate smell very relaxing and it took the angst out of the head lice thing!

    I don't envy you with the head lice. We had rounds with that a few years back, and what a pain. My mom had found some recipe online using a bunch of different oils (like lavender and tea tree oil). It smelled awful, but it worked!

    Thanks for sharing all this. My daughter might like the pimple solution! Not that I would use it on this one, but right now she has one right in her ear and it's driving her crazy!
