Quassia chips (Picrasma
excelsa) as a shampoo for head lice/nits:
Preparation: Take one tablespoon to one large mug of water (or one ounce to one pint water) and place in a stainless steel pan. Bring to the boil, cover, then gently simmer for 20 minutes. [This is known as a decoction.] Allow to cool, then strain (a paper coffee filter is ideal) and keep in the refrigerator when not in use.
Directions for use: Shampoo
as normal, rinse, then rub into the hair a handful of the quassia preparation
and leave for 5 minutes. Rinse,
then repeat. Finally apply
conditioner and comb hair thoroughly. Repeat
every other day for one week, then apply weekly until all signs of infestation
Regular use of a shampoo containing tea-tree essential oil (or apply two to three drops directly to the hair) will help prevent re-infestation.
Cautions: If your child
has a history of allergic reactions, asthma or skin conditions, always test any
new substances you may be applying to the skin by patch testing and waiting for
any sign of a reaction.
