Message length 300 characters recommended

Someone told me, when my son started preschool, to wash the kids hair 1-2 times a week with tea tree oil.Apparently, lice bugs do not like tea tree oil so it is a good repellent.


I remember when I was a kid my mom would freak when those notes would be sent home or we even heard of someone having it and we'd all have to be doused with this "lice" treatment and it took me years to know what the awful smell was in that stuff - tea tree oil was the main ingredient.

You know, I don't think any mother aims to be a single mom. I didn't wish for that, but it happened.
