    I would like to use my empties, 15 ml bottles to make this. What would you recommend?

      fill the 15ml bottles about halfway with distilled water, then fill most of the rest of the way with witch hazel, and then add 1 drop each of peppermint and tea tree essential oils.

    What if you don’t have Thyme? What could you substitute?

      Hi Megan,
      A couple more drops of eucalyptus or tea tree would be good substitute for thyme.

    Can you spray this on smelly feet too?

      I would omit the thyme. Then yes, I would use this on smelly (adult) feet.
