During hot summer days, our feet can get a little sweaty. This can occur even when you wear socks! In my particular case, I wear my loafers without socks when I wear shorts and by the time I get home they are as wet as the Mississippi River. This moisture leads to smelly feet apparel and a possible fungal infection. Don’t use expensive, toxic foot deodorizers when you can clean them using our “Fugetaboutit!” foot odor essential oil recipe.
Using this recipe will wipe away your foot odor as fast as the Mafia gets rids of its enemy. Fugetaboutit! The science behind this foot odor essential oil recipe is simple. Baking powder is a natural desiccant and odor-eliminator. The oils in it will not only provide a great scent, but they will fight against any possible bacterial or fungal infection you might have.
- 1 Tablespoon of Baking Powder
- 1 Drop of Peppermint Oil
- 2 Drops of Pine Oil
- 2 Drops of Tea Tree Oil
Place baking powder in a small snack-size bag.
Add the oils.
Allow to dry.
Dust the feet regularly with the powder.
Substitute Scots, Greek Sage, or Rosemary if you don't have Pine Oil. Add Geranium Oil for a more effeminate scent.
If you would like a more feminine scent for the “Fugetaboutit!” foot odor essential oil recipe, add some geranium or ylang ylang.
Other great preventative measures you can employ to eradicate foot odor.
- Periodic foot baths with 2 drops of tea tree or sage.
- Dry your feet well after any bath or shower.
