In brief: Maybe
There are a number of remedies some people swear by to kill lice- these include different types of oils, mayonnaise, butter, etc.
However there are no scientific studies supporting these treatments.

In brief: Maybe
There are a variety of " home remedies" for lice, including a number of oils, however there are no scientific studies to support them. So you may be able to kill off some of the bugs, but it is essential to kill all of the live lice as well as the eggs in order to prevent a recurrence!
