I had suffered many years with terrible itchiness and embarrassingly smelly feet. Soaking my feet did not even touch the problem. I used powders and rotated shoes to no avail.
In 2009 my podiatrist handed me a prescription for an expensive medicated cream and told me I had serious athlete's foot. He said I should use the cream for a month. The thought of putting the chemicals in that medicated cream on my feet kept me from using it.
In 2013 I was introduced to Young Living essential oils and signed up as a distributor. Recently I used Thieves essential oil blend on the infected ingrown nails on both my big toes. I did not want the residue on my hands to go to waste, so I smeared the rest of it on the bottoms of my feet. The next 1-2 nights I did this same thing.
The infected ingrown nail sites all cleared up as I expected. However, I got quite a shock when I looked down at the bottoms of my feet. They were pink and smooth. The cracked skin and itchiness was completely gone. And I have to say that my feet do not stink anymore! I am thrilled to not have to deal with smelly feet. It is so freeing!
To maintain my new foot freedom, I let my nose tell me when I need to rub a drop of Thieves mixed with V-6 Enhanced Vegetable Oil Complex on the bottoms of my feet. When I slip my Thieves-rubbed feet into my shoes in the morning, the Thieves oil keeps them smelling fresh all day long. I know this because I have smelled my socks after removing them at the end of the day, and they still smell like Thieves essential oil blend!
