Fungus on your feet, between the toes and in the toenails isn’t fun to deal with, plus it makes for stinky feet! Fortunately, this homemade antifungal powder can work as a stinky feet, athlete’s foot and toenail fungus treatment.


  • 1½ tablespoons bentonite clay
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne powder
  • 2 drops cinnamon essential oil
  • 2 drops clove essential oil
  • 2 drops frankincense essential oil
  • a shaker bottle, glass if possible, or glass jar


  1. In a small bowl, combine the bentonite clay and cayenne powder.
  2. Add the essential oils and blend well with a wooden spoon.
  3. Place the concoction into your container. I always recommend glass when possible to prevent chemical leaching or a BPA-free powder bottle. You can also just use a glass jar and a spoon or clean makeup brush.
  4. Sprinkle the powder onto your feet. (Remember to wash your hands thoroughly before touching your eyes, especially since there is cayenne in the blend.)
  5. Another great way to apply it? Put in the toe of your sock, then slip your socks onto your feet. That should help it get between the toes.
  6. Apply twice daily for one to two weeks. You can even sleep with it on, but make sure you wear your socks to prevent it from staining your bed sheets.
