Homemade foot powders, sprays and deodorants combine anti-bacterial herbs and oils with organic, bulk ingredients like Orris Root, arrowroot powder, simple cornstarch, and white clay. These natural, non-toxic bases replace the aluminum chloride and boric acid used in OTC deodorants and antiperspirants. The anti-bacterial and antiperspirant properties of essential oils and herbs eliminate odor-causing bacteria while adding their own distinctive fragrances. Essential oils of Sage, cypress, patchouli, and rose are often anchored with resins like benzoin, and sandalwood in deodorizing blends.
