Neutralise bad smelly feet with a DIY foot deodorant with essential oils. The wonderful part? This natural foot deodorant without aluminium is crazy easy to make. Just gather the ingredients and follow the steps below. This antiperspirant is alcohol-based, so it evaporates quickly and doesn’t leave a film on your skin. Sage essential oil has strong antifungal, antimicrobial, antibacterial and disinfectant qualities, making it ideal to use an all-natural deodorant. Lemongrass essential oil smells incredibly fragrant and refreshing and will help to counter the stench of sweaty feet. The alcohol together with the essential oils doesn’t prevent sweating, which is a natural bodily function but stops the bacteria on your skin to break down the sweat, which is what causes bad odour. The scent of the deodorant is herbaceous and refreshing, making it perfect for ladies and gents alike. You can also spray the deodorant into shoes and sandals to disinfect and freshen up your footwear. The downloads for this homemade beauty recipe include the printable instructions and a gorgeous printable label to adorn the spritz bottle.
