Did you know feet have on average 250,000 sweat glands and they can excrete as much as ½ a pint of sweat a day? Once that moisture is sealed in a pair of socks and shoes, the perfect breeding ground for bacteria and fungi and the (main sources of foot odor) is born. So what can you do besides changing your socks, and alternating shoes every other day?
Try lavender and tea tree oils. Mix 1 teaspoon of tea tree essential oil with 3 teaspoons of lavender oil and massage onto freshly washed feet twice a day.
Lavender is one of the most skin friendly healing herbs available in nature and will help heal skin irritations caused by bacteria. Meanwhile the potent anti-fungal properties in tea tree oil will send bacteria packing.
