No one likes to take off their shoes and get knocked back a few feet. What can you do to help with the odors coming from your shoes?

Odors are caused from bacteria and dirt. Warm moist conditions inside your shoes are a perfect breeding ground for odor producing bacteria.

If possible try to rotate the wearing of your shoes and let them have a 24 hours period between wearing to thoroughly dry.

Also avoiding shoes that trap moisture will help. Lightweight leather, or fabric such as cotton and nylon will help the moisture to evaporate and dry quickly. Avoid plastic or man-made materials if at all possible but especially if you have a foot odor problem.

Place several drops (6-8) of one or more of the following oils to a cotton ball and place in the shoes, leave overnight. Remember to remove cotton balls before putting on your shoes!

Good oils to use for smelly shoes include: Eucalyptus, Lemongrass, Bergamot, Cypress,Pine Needle and Lavender. Of course you may have others you want to try. All essential oils have antibacterial properties to varying degrees.

Another suggestion is to use sachets placed into your shoes or boots each and every night. The essential oils in the sachets will help to contol odor and kill some of the nasty's inside the shoes too.
