We can all get a little uncomfortable when we take off our shoes over at a friends house and we are worried if our feet are going to stink up the whole room, ruining the mood for everyone. However, this is a very natural occurrence and is pretty common in all ages/genders. The best way to go about eliminating unwanted foot stench is to give yourself a very relaxing, foot soak.

The reason why we develop such awful aromas on our feet is due to bacteria on our skin that feeds off of the moisture we produce when our feet get sweaty in our shoes. You can control these bacteria and reduce the stench of your feet tremendously.

Rosemary and Sage Foot Soak


  • A large bowl/bucket to soak your feet in
  • 1-2 teaspoons of dried sage
  • 1 teaspoon of dried rosemary

These two ingredients are antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral. Not only are they going to help re-balance the bacteria on your feet but will reduce how much sweat you produce as well.

Epsom Salt Foot Soak


  • A large bowl/bucket to soak your feet in
  • 8 cups of warm water
  • 1/2 cup of Epsom salt


Let the 1/2 cup of Epsom salt dissolve in the 8 cups of warm water. Allow your feet to soak in the salt for 30 minutes up to two times a day. Twice is usually preferred if you are constantly active or go to the gym. Be sure to dry your feet thoroughly.

There are other herbal foot soaks that you can try out, these ones appealed to us most considering they are some of the most effective treatments when it comes to eliminating foot stink.

  • Avoid personal care products that include endocrine disruptors like parabens and phthalates.
