Body odors are gross. My mama used to tell me that it is a sign of bad hygiene. Well for the most part, yes. But, there are things you do not have control of, like some kind of disease, some foods we take or genes.
I have not heard of any medication for body odor, but I do know of some ways to prevent or control it.
Keeping the armpit and armpit area clean and shaving it regularly can help prevent body odor. Watching what you eat, like avoiding garlic, onion and spices, and wearing clean clothes also helps control it.
One of the most effective way is to use a deodorant. The only problem is most deodorants in the market are made from chemicals that may harm the skin and the environment.
Here’s a simple and easy homemade natural deodorant recipe to get rid of that nasty smell. It is healthy and very cost effective.
Homemade Natural Deodorant
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup baking soda
40 drops essential oils
- Mix coconut oil and baking soda in a bowl
- Add in essential oils
- Store in a deodorant container or a glass jar
It is super easy to make not to mention the benefits we can get from it. Enjoy!
