Tinea pedis or athlete’s foot is a fungal infection of the skin that infects the feet. This fungus loves warm moist environment to which many feet are subject. A good way to start with the healing process is to keep the feet dry and stay out of tight shoes.
Essential oils are a great way to help you get rid of the infection and here is how:
The single oils used for this treatment are Tea Tree, Lavender, Peppermint, Copaiba.
Existing DoTerra Blends : OnGuard, Purify, Abode.
First Athletes foot blend: 8 drops of teat tree 2 drops of lavender
Second Athletes foot blend: 8 drops of Tea Tree 4 drops of Peppermint 2 drops of Copaiba
You can either dilute the blends with some vegetable oil (50/50) or use them directly on the feet.
Apply 5 to 7 drops of your Athletes foot essential oil solution blend onto your toes and around your toenails making sure you cover all areas. Repeat this daily until the infection has completely cleared. This is a very efficient way of getting rid of Athletes Foot without having to use heavy chemical products.
Please make sure you use only Therapeutic grade essential oils. I recommend using only DoTerra essential oils and blends.
