|Embarrassing Foot Odor
|There are 2 things that you need
to deal with when it comes to foot odor, and
that is bacteria and sweat. It is not actually
the sweat that makes your feet smell, but the
bacteria that thrives in the moist environment
it creates. Sweat is actually odorless, for the
most part, except for the kind that comes from
the glands in the armpit/genital area. There are
proteins and amino acids in sweat from those
glands (called the apocrine glands) that feed
bacteria, giving it a particular unappealing
smell. The bacteria on your feet give off a kind
of gas as they eat, which is the source of your
problems. If you can keep your feet dry, clean,
and fight the bacteria, you won’t have to worry
about letting them out to breathe in a room with
other people around. That’s easier said than
done though, and when you need a little help,
these 5 foot soaks can make it simple for you
kick the odor-causing culprits.
|Simple Epsom Salt Foot
Epsom salt neutralizes odor, and as a bonus,
it also happens to be very soothing on aching
-1/2 cup of Epsom salt
-8 cups of warm water
-Something to soak your feet in
Dissolve ½ cup of Epsom salt in 8 cups of warm
water and soak your feet for 30 minutes 1-2
times daily. Dry thoroughly afterwards.
|Sage and Rosemary Soak
has antibacterial, antiviral, and antifungal
properties, and is also an astringent. Rosemary
is antibacterial/antifungal, and is an
astringent as well-which means that both help
minimize the production of sweat from the
sweat glands. Less sweat means a less ideal
environment for bacteria to harbor in.
-1 teaspoon of dried
-1-2 teaspoons of dried
-A small foot basin or something similar
Fill a foot basin with boiling water and add
the herbs to it. Let it steep until it is cool
enough to put your feet in, but still warm.
Soak for 30 minutes 1-2 times daily.
|Bubbly Baking Soda and
Baking soda has too many uses to list here,
but when it comes to foot odor, it can be a
true miracle worker. It naturally helps
control odor, kill bacteria/fungus, and
softens your feet to boot. Lemon is an
astringent, which will help with excessive
sweating causing foot odor, plus it has a
wonderful fresh scent.
-¼ cup of baking soda
-8 cups of water
-Juice of one lemon
-Something to soak your feet in
Place ¼ cup of baking soda in your foot
basin, and then cover with approximately 8
cups of toasty (but not hot) warm water.
Squeeze in the juice of one lemon, sink your
feet in, and give it a little swish. Soak for
15-20 minutes or so, and then dry completely.
|Very Vinegar Soak
Apple cider vinegar might not seem like the
first thing you want to submerge your stinky
feet in, but it actually does a nice job at
getting rid of odor. It creates an acidic
environment that bacteria have a hard time
thriving in, reducing the count and
subsequently the smell.
-1/2 cup of Apple Cider Vinegar
-5-8 cups of warm water
-Something to soak your tootsies in
Fill a foot basin with 5-8 cups of warm water
and add ½ cup of white distilled or apple
cider vinegar to it. Submerge your feet, swish
the mixture around, and soak for 15 minutes
twice a day. Dry completely when you’re
finished-you can rinse them in cold water
afterwards if you want.
|Black Tea Foot Soak
Common folklore often tells of soaking feet
in black tea to remove foot odor-thought to be
effective because of the high levels of
tannins, or tannic acid, in the tea. The acid
would create an unfriendly environment for
bacteria, while it also possibly acted as an
astringent (contracts body tissues therefore
-5 bags of black tea
-4 cups of hot water
-Something to soak your feet in
Pour 4 cups of very hot or boiling water into
your foot basin, and add 5 bags of black tea.
Allow them to steep for 10 minutes, and then
soak your feet for 20. Do this once a day,
drying your feet thoroughly afterwards.
2 tsp kosher salt
5 drops orange
4 drops lemon
5 drops camphor
½ tsp seaweed
Lemon juice, as needed
½ tsp vegetable glycerin
Mix together the dry ingredients. Add the
vegetable glycerin and essential oils, and
then gradually add the lemon juice to make a
soft paste. Scrub into your feet and keep
them somewhere easily washable (tub/sink/old
bucket/outdoors) for about 10 minutes. Rinse
off and moisturize. Soc up and enjoy your
clean, soft feet!
