Athlete's Foot or Dry/Cracked/Smelly Feet seems to be common in today's society. My husband and son have this problem quite often. I recently learned about some Essential Oils possible solutions to this problem. I had my husband apply the Lavender Essential Oil to his feet when ever he started to show signs of this problem, and it works wonders. In fact, one of my husbands co-workers would come in after a long day at work wearing work boots (that don't breathe all that well) and without fail whenever he would remove his boot's his feet would itch so badly that he would scratch them until they were raw or almost bleeding! Somehow the conversation between the two of them ended up with my husband calling me and asking what his co-worker could do to help with this. I told him to have him apply the Lavender Essential Oil. After a few days, his co-worker said that the Lavender was making a difference.
