At least one in four of us have sweaty, stinky feet.
Long the butt of jokes, stinky feet are no laughing matter if they are yours.
According to a study in the International Research Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology, soaking your feet in Lemongrass essential oil kills up to 83% of germs that cause foot odor (brevibacterium) on contact.
Here’s how to handle foot odor:
-Fill up a basin with the hottest water you can stand.
-Add 15 drops of Lemongrass essential oil.
-Soak feet for 10 minutes.
-Dry your feet.
-Repeat twice a week.
