1. Ginger

Most people think of ginger as being a natural anti-nausea herb, which it is, but ginger is also antifungal and antibacterial. Make your own strong ginger tea by slicing up a two-inch piece of fresh, organic ginger root and adding it to one cup of boiling water. Allow this to sit for 20 minutes, then strain. When it has cooled, apply this tea to your feet and between your toes using either a cotton ball or a clean washcloth. Do this daily until your symptoms diminish.

 

2. Mustard Oil

You might think that mustard is only for hot dogs or hamburgers, but here we are talking about mustard oil — not that yellow stuff you put on your food. Mustard oil will kill foot fungus really quickly. It might burn a bit, but not as much as the burning of Athlete’s Foot! Apply some pure mustard oil directly to your feet, or you can soak your feet in mustard powder and water.

 

3. Neem Oil

This oil comes to us from India and is  non-toxic oil to humans, but is deadly to bugs and fungus. Apply this oil to your clean, dry feet using a cotton ball. Allow it to dry, and don’t wash it off. Repeat daily until your symptoms improve.
