Herbal Sneaker Tamer #1
2 cups of dried sage
1-1/2 cups of dried lemon balm (I used lemon verbena and some lemon scented geranium.)
2 cups of cedar chips
1/2 cup of baking soda
2 tablespoons grated orange rind (I didn't use this ingredient, but I think I would use lemon peel.)
10 drops rosemary essential oil
5 drops lemon essential oil
Combine the dried herbs, cedar chips, baking soda and orange rind in a glass or ceramic bowl. Stir with a wooden spoon. Add the essential oils and stir to blend. Place half of the mixture in a clean sock and tie the open end shut. (I used a rubber band and then tied on a ribbon.) Stuff other sock with the remaining mixture and tie off. Place a stuffed sock in each sneaker overnight or when not in use. NOTE: These are 'dusty' because of the baking soda. When you aren't using them in your sneakers, store them in a plastic bag. You may have to replace the baking soda after a while.
Very easy. Smells delicious. Think it will work very well. I may make them for myself and another person who shall remain nameless. I did buy women's socks. I think this will work equally as well for men's socks and sneakers as well.
Getting a bunch of rain here. Hope you had a great day. Getting items ready for my annual holiday giveaway. May post the items and start things over the weekend if I get the chance. Talk to you later.
