This foot powder is perfect for foot fungus or infections. This basic antifungal foot powder can work to prevent the feet from becoming too moist, and also helps to prevent bacteria and fungus, as well as help to treat foot fungus (such as Athletes Foot). Just sprinkle the antifungal foot powder into your shoes or socks in the morning before you start the day. If your feet sweat a lot, I suggest using it mid day as well.
Things You'll Need
- 1/4 Cup of Cornstarch
- 1 Teaspoon of Baking Soda
- 1/4 Teaspoon of Orris Root Powder
- 5 Drops of Peppermint Oil
Sift the cornstarch, baking soda and orris root powder into a medium sized bowl.
Drop the peppermint oil into the mixture, then use your fingers to break up the clumps and try to stir them throughout the mixture.
Leave the small clumps in the mixture, or sift them out. I suggest leaving them in, and then just removing them as you use the powder.
Pour the mixture into an airtight container with a lid, I suggest using a tupperware container or a flour container. Store in a cool dark area, such as a cabinet. It will stay fresh for a few months.
