Yo, I love to talk about foot fungus. The more I learn about bacteria and fungi, the more I weirdly admire them. Like plants and animals, they are the other creatures populating the heck out of the world out there!
Bacteria and fungi have had dynamic relationships with medicinal plants for, like, millions of years. When we use plants as medicine, our bodies get to be the stadium of this ancient game. The ‘antiseptic’ and ‘anti-fungal’ properties of plants we apply in herbal medicine are borrowed from the plant’s own ability to keep bacteria and fungus at bay.
Let me just take a moment to thank the medicine plants for letting me borrow some of their stuff- I will totally return that phone charger asap btw.
Foot fungus is an especially stubborn variety- in a way similar to a dude who won’t move out of his parents house. You know, I’ll just chill way down here between your toes/basement. Why would I leave? You got the space and you feed me regular meals. Years go by. Oh yeah, still totally down there.
Well, Fat and the Moon has an herbal smackdown/life coach squad here to help you get your basement back so you can finally put your pinball machine down there.
Herbs like black walnut, chaparral, thuja and usnea ain’t fooled by the fungus’ empty promises of flight from feet!
To compare and contrast for a moment with the Healing Foot Powder… in a salve, the herbs are infused in oil making the product especially good for the dry and itchy variety of fungus. The oil soothes the dry and cracking parts of the skin while delivering the kick in the pants to the offending fungi. The Foot Powder is great for the fungus that loves the sweaty scene, since the powder absorbs moisture. They can be used in tandem if you have some 'all seasons' fungus that just won’t quit..
The Farewell Fungus Salve can also be used for fungus on other parts of the bod and would be great for stinkers like ringworm. Don’t even get me started on ringworm...
