See note at bottom.
I got a pretty fair number of positive comments about my Smooth Young Feet ala The Ped Egg. So, I thought, “Why not talk about my feet some more?” Who knew there was so much blog fodder just sittin’ there on the end of my legs?
Now, I don’t want to to be gross or disgusting, but, sometimes my feet itch. There, I said it, for all the world to read. I get athlete’s foot.
Which sounds like it should be a good thing. I should be very speedy and fit. Right? I have the feet of an athlete!
No. Just itchy feet.
And since my knee injury I have been wearing tennis shoes all the time. Of course, the sensible shoes aggravate the nastiness. So lately the itching has been a big deal.
The only cure for this I have ever tried comes in a spray can at the pharmacy. Here’s the problem. I hate using aerosol cans and I hate using harsh chemicals on my skin, my families skin, human skin, anything!
So every morning as I’m spraying this toxic waste all over my feet, I’m thinking to myself, “There’s got to be a more natural way to deal with this!”
I finally had a Eureka! moment. Tea Tree Oil. And I just so happened to have some in my bathroom. I had read all over the internet about tea tree oil being used for all manor of skin problems, both bacterial and fungal. So I gave it a whirl.
My athlete’s foot condition cleared right up. All I did was to rub some tea tree oil on the offending parts of my feet. It even felt nice going on. No fumes to gag me. No guilt over the nasty chemicals absorbing into my central nervous system. Umm, and no more itchy feet. Works for me!
Alert reader Elizabeth pointed out that tea tree oil is not for use during pregnancy or nursing. If this means you, do your research first. Maybe there is another natural option that is safe during these times. I would guess that my spray-can-fog should be off limits too.
