Creating your own DIY Stinky shoe spray

If you have been following our website for a while now you probably have been using essential oils for many of your own DIY projects with essential oils like household cleaners or beauty care products.

I’m absolutely obsessed with using essential oils to replace any chemical toxins products in our home and living a more natural lifestyle. That’s why I’m excited to share with you how to make your own stinky shoe spray. My husband’s steel toe work shoes could knock the socks off the best of us, so finding a natural shoe deodorizer was a priority for me because the fumes from a product we purchase made it hard to breath when used. 

You probably already have these products in your cabinet if you have made any of our essential oil recipes beforehand.

How and when should you use your DIY stinky shoe spray?

Shake well before each use to mix the witch hazel and essential oils together.

Open the tongue of your shoe and laces and spray your stinky shoe spray from the top of the shoes where your toes sit right down to your heels, using about 4-5 sprays from your misting bottle. 

Let your shoes dry before wearing, I like to spray in the evening so they can dry overnight.
