St Jude’s Miracle Oil® vs. parasites, mites, ticks, fleas and head lice!

DISCLAIMER Information within this site is for educational purposes only. The U.S. Food & Drug Administration has not evaluated statements about the product efficacy. These products are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

Miracle oil was originally developed to relieve pain or inflammation.  We knew there were other potential results, but we did not realize then what they could do.  There are many products out there, including NSAIDs to relieve pain for example.  The problem with all types of treatments is the unknown variable about side effects.  I had a friend that takes aspirin or Tylenol due to his pain.  He found out recently the toxicity levels this can result for overuse.  The NCBI reports that patients with acetaminophen blood levels higher than 300 mg/dL at four hours after intake are most likely to develop hepatic damage.  Ironically, many doctors don’t have the information that the relatively cheap amino acid N-acetylcysteine iwhen used within the first ten hours after ingestion of an overdose, the recovery rate is reported to be virtually 100%.  See Effects of aspirin and acetaminophen on the liver.1,2

Miracle oil has been used in many different ways, for inflammation, infection, burns, wounds, and many other consumer uses that can be viewed elsewhere with references on this website.

We have two dogs, Samson and Delilah.  They are two wonderful Pit bulls, and are very loving to anyone that lets them climb all over them.  Unfortunately dogs get rashes, fleas, ticks, lice and other parasites along with the usual outdoor causes.  We’ve shown studies regarding evidence on Staph, bacteria, E coli, Candida, Eczema and fungi you can find NCBI referenced on our blog.  I have heard a huge dread and fear recently from friends and people with children in schools regarding lice or other similar parasites.  Here we will break down some insects or parasites vs. essential oils found in our product.

Eucalyptus, geranium, and lavender vs. Mosquitoes

Eucalyptus, geranium, and lavender together without any other oils in this study are a very effective mosquito repellent.3  Frankincense4,  and Myrrh5, are lethal to larvae of mosquito.

Recently, a friend of mine notified me they knew someone who’s child had head lice in school.  This is very common, and unfortunately there are no official solutions.  I told them about our Miracle oil product, and references to medical journals show a positive light on the essential oils in our product against lice.  We have used our oil on our dogs for rashes, poison ivy, and elsewhere on this website you can view its effect against burns, bee stings, and even the one anecdotal case of the dog that was bitten by a rattlesnake.

Ectoparasites including fleas, ticks, and lice

Ectoparasites (fleas and other skin parasites) in dogs) can be transmitted dog to dog, trees, environment.  General treatments such as Flea collars, shampoos and powders are not suggested as in the past.  Lice generally has  spot on treatments similar to flea treatment and is generally a 4-8 week time, including treatment of house, cars, etc.. Ticks should be removed properly and if removed with jaw area still intact, the tick can regurgitates blood possibly causing infection.  Mites are spot on treated, or medicinal shampoos.6

Almost All Lice Are Now Resistant to Over-the-Counter Treatment

Researchers found that head lice (Pediculus humanus capitis) in 42 of the 48 states studied carry an average of three genetic mutations that make these bugs impervious to popular over-the-counter anti-lice remedies.  In the remaining six states, the lice had zero, one or two of the three mutations, on average, the researchers reported in the study, published online March 31 in the Journal of Medical Entomology.

“Super lice” not budging with over-the-counter treatments – CBS News

“Parents should turn to physicians first instead of trying to treat their children themselves with over-the-counter products”, said report lead author Dr. Ellen Koch, dermatologist with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.

Eucalyptus vs ectoparasites

Two experimental herbal mixtures (AV/EPP/14 and AV/AAGD/14 produced by Dabur Ayurvet Limited in India), which contain Eucalyptus globulus oil along with several other plant oils, have been tested on dogs to treat ectoparasites, fungal skin infections, and non-specific skin infections.  (Agrawal 1997 and Bhilegaonkar and Maske 1997).7

From research studies on essential oils and ectoparasites.9

Geranium vs. ticks and mites

Effective in repelling ticks, and all mites, and within 48 hours found to have mortalities of 83.3% .1o,11,12

Lavender toxic to ectoparasites

Lavender exposure to Poultry red mice in low dosage caused 70% mortality, effective against other ectoparasites. More studies show effect against Poultry red mite.  Early in vitro studies found that lavender essential oil and many of its constituents were effective against rabbit ear mite.13-17

6 essential oils including lavender, peppermint, eucalyptus, and clove bud toxic to donkey’s chewing louse

Closed contact assays of six oils against B. ocellatus found the essential oil of lavender one of two to be the most toxic, with LC50 values of 0.76% and 0.98%, respectively (Talbert & Wall, 2012). 18

Essential oils in SJMO vs. Head lice (Pediculus capitis)

Peppermint oil has shown to be effective against head lice.19

Lavender kills lice and lice eggs in 24 hours

Lavender among three essential oils had highest percentage of subjects who were louse-free one day after the last treatment with the product (97.6%).20

Impressively, 41 of 42 (97.6%) of the tea tree oil/lavender oil treatment group were louse-free one day after the final application, whereas only 10 of 40 (25%) from the chemical insecticide group were free from lice after the last treatment”.21

Clove and eucalyptus oils vs. susceptible and pyrethroid/ malathion-resistant head lice

The efficacies of eucalyptus and clove oils were almost identical against females from both strains of head lice, despite high levels of resistance of the BR-HL females to d-phenothrin (resistance ratio, 667) and pyrethrum (resistance ratio, 754).22

Geranium maculatum L.) oil and tested against female Pediculus humanus capitis lice

Topical application in testing oils shows toxic against lice.23

Eucalyptus kills 50% head lice in 24-39 minutes

Eucalyptus globulus ssp maidenii, with knockdown time 50% (KT(50)) values of 24.75, 27.73, and 31.39 min.  Since Eucalyptus essential oils showed to be effective against head lice and are classified as safer compounds, they can be employed into pediculicide formulations.24

Generally, you should view a physician if a child has uncontrolled lice.  One of our consumers asked me to mention our product in an article and how it works against lice.  I told her I would, and she emailed me a testimony, and I will paste here, while respecting her privacy:

SJMO consumer testimony on her effects vs lice

“On April the 4th I received a call from my daughter’s school telling me she had lice. I was unaware she even had them. When I picked her up I immediately went to CVS and bought some RID. We went home and I spent almost 2 ½ hrs on her hair. The problem seemed to be resolved but a few days later I noticed her scratching and checked her hair, she still had lice.  I went back to CVS and the pharmacist told me to try NIX.  We got the shampoo, spray, gel, and even the fancy comb with the light on it.  We spent another 2 ½ hrs on her hair.  My daughter was very stressed out and her head hurt from all of the brushing and pulling.  A few days later she was scratching AGAIN!!  I informed William Vandry who told me to try the St. Jude’s Miracle Oil.  He told me to dilute the oil with water and rub it on her scalp.  I left it on her hair for about 20 mins and just massaged her head (which made her feel better).  The scent of the oil even seemed to calm her down even!  I rinsed and brushed through her hair.  I was SHOCKED at how many bugs and eggs were still in her hair after washing it twice with the top two lice shampoos (per the pharmacist).  I spent the next two days just brushing the dead eggs out of her hair and she is now lice free, – J”

That’s great!  Thank you to all our consumers, and feel free to go to our facebook page, and feel free to contact me.
