How to Make Foot Deodorant Recipes

Living a natural, organic lifestyle, you may be suspicious of an ingredient list with lots of multiple-syllable, chemical sounding words and must be trying to avoid: aluminium, parabens and synthetic fragrances. If you are not interested in purchasing foot deodorizers that may contain harsh chemicals, you can make your own natural foot deodorizer at home.

Natural Foot Bath Deodorant

This blend of peppermint oil and mineral salts that soothes and cools the feet while easing tension relieves itching and helps eliminate foot odour. Soak the feet in the following solution:2 Tablespoons White Vinegar, 5-6 Tablespoons Epsom salts, 20 drops Peppermint Essential Oil with 1 litre Warm water

Sage Deodorizing Foot Powder.

Keeps feet dry, supple and odourless with a clean and fresh herbal fragrance. Use for itchy feet.

Ingredients:2 tablespoon of baking powder, 1 tablespoon of corn flour, 1 tablespoon sage powdered, 1 tablespoon of white clay, 10 drops of Sage essential oil. Instructions: Pulverize the Sage in a blender or food processor until it become a very fine powder. Mix all the powders, the sage and the essential oils in a zip lock plastic bag, shake well. Allow to dry for few days. Break up any clumps that may have formed. Transfer the finished powder into a clean powder container with sifter. Dust feet regularly with the powder.

Do you put your shoes outside the door because of foot odour? Add a teaspoon of Sage Deodorizing Foot Powder in the shoes overnight.

Lavender Deodorant Powder

This formula contains a highly effective combination of white clay and zinc oxide for long lasting elimination of strong foot odour. The fragrance of the essential oils is revitalising for your feet and increase the disinfecting performance.

Ingredients: 50grs Cornstarch powder, 50grs White clay, 25grs Zinc oxide, 20 drops of Lavender Essential oil, 10 drops Rose geranium Essential oil, 10 drops Peppermint Essential oil.

  6. I will definitely experiment with this recipe! I prefer making my own foot and underarm deodorants, but my husband has a preference for the ready-made products. He's been using a brand called Lavilin, for both his underarms and feet. He's said great things and I doubt I can get him to switch, but will try with this recipe!
