Ugh, so you brought a fungus infection home with you from somewhere. And it’s not fun at all to deal with it, plus, hello, quite noticeable. If your first thought while reading this is to run to the pharmacy and grab some cheap anti-fungal concoction, you might want to put that reaction on hold. Such over-the-counter treatments are full of chemicals and ingredients we know nothing about, so why don’t we try something homemade and quick?

We have a recipe for a powder that helps you get rid of stinky feet, toenail fungus and athlete’s foot. This powder may also help you if you have a “cold feet” syndrome, or if your feet just don’t like the dampness.

For the sake of testing out how this works for you, we’ll provide the list of ingredients enough for 8-10 applications. If it’s effective enough, just double the amount of everything the next time.

2 drops of clove essential oil;

2 drops of frankincense essential oil.

Also, a glass shaker bottle, or a glass jar.

How it works: Clay is well-known for its toxin-absorbing qualities, so it will help pull out the bacteria. Cayenne powder will cause a warm sensation, and it helps eliminate and prevent fungus infections. The essential oils are great for treating infections, too, they have anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. Plus, they smell great!

The how-to: combine the clay and pepper powder, then add the oils and blend well. Remember to wash your hands well after being in contact with cayenne powder because it’s really, really hot. Sprinkle the powder onto your feet. Another effective way to apply the powder is to put it in the toe of your socks and then put the socks on. This should help distribute it between your toes.

How often and for how long: Use twice every day, for a week or two. It’s ok to sleep with the powder freshly applied, just wear socks in order not to soil your sheets. And, of course, if you feel discomfort or the powder causes irritation, stop using it.

We hope this easily-made home recipe will provide you with the much-needed relief!
