Now that you have eradicated your stinky foot odor using our essential oil recipe, let’s focus on those shoes. Foot apparel are a reservoir for bacteria and fungus. Shoes simply retain moisture too efficiently, especially in the summer. I’m sure there have been times when you have walked into a closet, maybe your teenagers’ or your own, and it stunk like 80-year-old shoe. Don’t turn to those toxic, overpriced foot sprays laced with phthalates! We can easily eradicate that malodorous scent by using the The Essential Oil Foot Deodorizer Recipe Ideal For Your Teenage Boys.
The key ingredient is the alcohol. Now before you start pouring whiskey into your shoes, remember that this is rubbing alcohol (though whiskey, vodka, etc would work just fine). The purpose of the alcohol is that it captures the scent of the essential oils better than water. Also it is a natural antiseptic (this is why we pour it on cuts…to the chagrin of your kids). Ouch!
