Rid Stinky Shoe Smells with Essential Oils

It can happen in kids’ shoes. They smell so bad it makes your eyes water. Yuck! It can happen in runners, in people who work on their feet all day, or really to pretty much anyone. Sometimes our feet just stink and that means our shoes stink as well.

So, what can you do about it?

Well, before we start talking about essential oils to rid stinky shoe smells, we first need to explore what is causing the odor in the first place.

Keeping your feet dry and clean is very important. When your feet are not clean, they will smell bad. You should make sure you’re cleaning every day with soap and water. However, moisture can happen in clean feet, making them start to smell. When your feet sweat, or when they get wet from rain, stepping in a puddle, or spills, the moisture can start to create an odor.

In addition to the bad smell, moisture also means a breeding ground for bacteria. If you have a foot odor even when your feet are dry and just after washing them, you might have bacteria. You can try to combat this by putting anti-bacterial hand sanitizer on your feet, especially before you put them in your shoes.

Finally, you should also avoid wearing your shoes (especially tennis shoes and similar styles) without socks. Socks help soak up the moisture and keep it away from the shoe. Also, socks can be tossed in the washer and cleaned so if your feet get smelly or sweaty (or both) in socks, you just pull them off and wash them but when that happens in your shoes, it’s more difficult to deal with.

Now that you know all of these tips for preventing foot odor in the first place, let’s talk about how essential oils can help with stinky shoes that have already happened.

How to Rid Stinky Shoe Smells

A purification blend is going to be a great choice for shoe odor. That’s because it’s going to lift and cleanse the odor from your shoe, versus just masking it with a new aroma.

Some specific oils that are good for removing odors are:

  • Bergamot
  • Grapefruit
  • Lemon
  • Lemongrass
  • Orange
  • Sage
  • Mandarin
  • Tangerine

All you need to do is place a couple of drops inside the shoe and allow it to completely dry before wearing. You’ll be amazed at how well it works and also how long it lasts!
