Santa's Workshop: DIY Natural Foot Powder ~ Essential Oils ~ by Bubblegum Sass

{Excuse the pun} This is a great stocking stuffer gift: DIY Natural Foot Powder! In previous years, I’ve purchased my husband some natural foot powders. It was always nice to have a container of it by the front door to sprinkle into shoes after arriving home. Keeps the entry way stinky-shoe free and helps with general foot odor. It’s been a while since I purchased any, and decided it was time to try my hand {not foot} at making our own. After all, with so many wonderful essential oils in the house, I figured we’d be set.

I found various recipes online and many had similar bases, so I decided just to start with that. From there, I added the oils & amounts that were satisfying to my own senses. Hopefully my hubby agrees because Santa is slipping this into his Christmas stocking. Here’s what you need to make my version of a Natural Food Powder:

DIY Natural Foot Powder

  • 6 tbsp Arrowroot Powder {I purchased mine here}
  • 3 tbsp Baking Soda
  • 8 drops Tea Tree essential oil
  • 5 drops Eucalyptus essential oil
  • 8 drops Peppermint essential oil
  • 5 drops Spearmint essential oil
  • a container with shaker top, also called powder bottle with sifter cap {Thankfully, we still had some of the empty containers from purchased foot powders, so I used one of those. My suggestion is an aluminum bottle with the shaker cap. You could also just use a salt/pepper shaker or one of those glass parmesan shakers}

Stir together the Arrowroot Powder and Baking Soda, until thoroughly mixed. Drop in each essential oil. Stir mixture, breaking up any clumps formed from adding oils. Pour into your container. Depending on the size of container, if you find yourself with a of bit extra powder {which I did}, just place into a ziplock bag or small glass jar. It can be your refill stash.


Happy Making {and happy toes}!
