Essential Oils for Athlete’s Foot

This skin condition is also known as tinea pedis or foot’s ringworm, a fungal infection affecting the foot in between toes. The right essential oils such as Clove Bud, Eucalyptus Lemon, Lavender-High Altitude, Lemongrass, Myrrh, Patchouli and Tea Tree are helpful in the treatment of athlete’s foot due to their well known anti-fungal traits and properties.

During treatment, essential oils can be applied at bath or feet soaked in water containing the oils or through warm compress. Carrier oils can be used to apply the essential oils, such as calendula oil. Treatment should be done every evening and every morning.
