Last month I wrote about Deodorising Powder for Feet and Sneakers. Today I'm sharing a recipe for a deodorising foot spray.
This Rosemary Foot Spray has a fresh, green aroma. Rosemary, cypress and patchouli all have anti-bacterial properties which will help to neutralise odour-causing bacteria that love the warm, moist environment created by shoes and socks.
Rosemary Foot Spray
- 2 sprigs of fresh rosemary (see note below)
- ½ cup witch hazel
- 30 drops cypress essential oil
- 10 drops patchouli essential
- spray bottle
Place the rosemary in the spray bottle. Add the remaining ingredients. Shake the lidded bottle, then leave to steep for a couple of days.
Shake before using. Spray on feet once or twice a day.
Note: If you don't have access to fresh rosemary substitute 10 drops of rosemary essential oil. Dried rosemary can be used, but it tends to clog the sprayer.

Lemon & Vinegar Foot Soak - In a small basin (big enough to pop your feet in) combine about 10 cups of warm water, 1 cup of apple cider vinegar and 1/2 a cup of sea salt. Stir well then add the juice from two lemons to the bowl. Pop you feet in and relax for 10-15 minutes.
