    Who has done this? I hear it works, and its right up my alley! I have two questions. does it kill the lice or just the eggs? wondering if i need to do another kind of treatment with it to make it work, or if CO is enough. Also, its dead winter here. I can keep the oil warm enough to apply, but then my girls will have hard feathers...thoughts on that? Anyone do this in the winter?

    I've never heard of that before. Where did you hear that coconut oil helps?
