The following are some effective home remedies for odor of the feet:
Add some baking soda to a bucket of water and soak your feet in it for 10 minutes. Sodium bicarbonate increases the acidic properties of the foot and significantly reduces foot odor. Baking soda creates a hostile environment that is not conducive to the multiplication of bacteria, thus avoiding the unpleasant smell.
Boil the water with 5 teabags for 15 minutes. Let the water become warm and then dip your feet into it. Thereafter the feet dry well and talc is applied to the feet.
Tea tree essential oil
Wash your feet well, dry them and then apply a little tea tree essential oil on the soles of your feet. Do not apply the essential oil directly. Mix about 10 drops of tea tree oil with 10 ml of wheat germ oil or almond oil.
