    Tea tree oil is also good for acne-prone skin-I have a little roll-on that I believe we got from Trader Joe's, and it's good to really dry a zit out.

    My daughters have been cursed twice with lice, the last two summers, in fact. There are some nice shampoos with tea tree oil already in them - Paul Mitchell comes to mind - but what I do now is dump a generous dollop of tea tree oil in their regular shampoo. The odour is a bit strong but I cannot face more weeks of nit-picking and washing every fabric surface in the house.

    Yeah, it is definitely strong-and I do love the PM Tea Tree shampoo. If they hate the smell, I would experiment with other essential oils to see if they would work-I would maybe try a few drops of lemon and a few drops of mint to help neutralize the tea tree smell.

    Degree has 2 new Body Mist Sprays that smell pretty good. They have matching scented deoderant.
    Dove has them too, they smell good... but I didn't care to smell like a fruit/vegetable.

    I am not crazy about scented deoderant, soap, laundry soap, etc.

    I wear a nice perfume and I like it and I don't want it to compete with my deoderant, my blouse, my soap, etc.

    So while I do buy degree that has a scent, it isn't strong. But I use Ivory soap and I use unscented laundry soap and I tend to stay away from all these scented products.
    Right now we have a homemade soap in the gift shop at work. I can't stand to be near it. It is so strong and it actually bothers my nose.

    Wow! Good to know about Tea Tree oil and lice! I actually love the smell of tea tree oil. It just smells so natural and clean to me..

    I would LOVE to have a scent that smelled like some of my favorite soaps.

    I have had tree allergies acting up over the last few weeks and I have noticed that some of the shower gels I have bought recently cause me to go into fits of sneezing. I'm hoping that the allergies are just making me extra sensitive because I have never reacted that was to soaps before!

    Re: FORTers' consumer reports

    Has anyone tried Jack Lalane's Power Pro Juicer? I'm trying to improve my diet, and thought a juicer would be a good long term investment. The only problem is we don't have a lot of fresh fruit, like berries, melons, grapes and such during the winter months and if we do they get fairly expensive.

    So, any juicers here?

    Yeah, but not the kind of juicer you're looking for.
