Lice Band is made with 100% natural essential oil which is a concentrated hydrophobic liquid that contains volatile aroma compounds from a plant. These naturally occurring oils can be derived from the seeds, stems, flowers, bark and other parts of the plant. Essential oils have long been used for their natural healing properties and may be an effective deterrent against head lice. Their extremely concentrated odor works as a repellent, helping to prevent head lice infestation.
Head lice are found worldwide. Infestation with head lice is most common among pre-school children attending child care, elementary school, and the household members of infested children. An estimated 6 million to 12 million infestations occur each year in North America among children 3 to 11 years of age.
Head lice move by crawling; they cannot hop or fly. Head lice are spread by direct contact with the hair of an infested person. Anyone who comes in head-to-head contact with someone who already has head lice is at greatest risk. Spread by contact with clothing (such as hats, scarves, coats) or other personal items (such as combs, brushes, or towels) used by an infested person is uncommon. Personal hygiene or cleanliness in the home or school has nothing to do with getting head lice

It can also be spread by children sharing hats, helmets, scarves, combs, hair accessories, hairbrushes or headphones.
