Hot, tired and sweaty feet can leave you feeling less than your best. Here is a recipe for a terrific foot spray that not only soothes and refreshes your feet, but eliminates unpleasant odors as well. The essential oils of peppermint and tea tree are also naturally antibacterial and are added to provide extra protection and deoderizing. Spray the bottoms of your feet and between your toes, wait thirty seconds, and slip into your footwear. The ingredients in the spray will promote healthier skin. Remember to spray your feet after drying off following your daily shower and after swimming to guard against athlete’s foot fungal infections.

Pour distilled water into a mixing bowl.

Add witch hazel to the distilled water.

Add the rosemary oil, slowly stirring as the drops are added to the bowl.

Repeat the above step with both the peppermint and the tea tree oils.

Use the funnel to carefully pour the mixture into a spray bottle. Allow the mixture to sit undisturbed overnight. Shake well before each use.

Tip

This spray can also be sprayed into your shoes overnight to help keep them fresh and to resist bacterial growth.

Warning

Do not spray this solution in your eyes! The essential oils may be ideal for your skin, but they can severely irritate eyes and mucous membranes. Be very careful when using this product.
