A Cure For Body Odor That Works Every Time!

Want to cure your body odor & reduce your sweating under the arms without the use of dangerous antiperspirants? Then here's 5 natural home remedies you might like to consider...


What is the best home remedy or natural treatment for very bad odour under the arms when sweating.


Hi Freddie, and thank you for your question regarding a natural remedy for body odor.

This is definitely a very common problem, but thankfully, and easily fixable one.

Firstly, make sure you never use an antiperspirant deodorant under your arms... ever! You are mean't to sweat from under the armpits. This is how your body removes toxins. But with an antiperspirant, the toxins are prevented from leaving, and instead, are recirculated back into the body. Very nasty and dangerous.

Anyway, there's 5 terrific natural remedies for armpit odor that you should consider using. Here are they are in order of importance...

Home Remedy for Body Odor #1... Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV): This is definitely number one. ACV balances the pH level of your skin and is a powerful bacterial killer. Once the toxins have come out of your skin, you want to neutralize them straight away so they don't smell. ACV does this perfectly.

So all you do is soak a cotton ball in apple cider vinegar and rub it under your armpits. Follow this cure twice daily, using once in the morning and again before going to bed.

ACV is also a potent internal cleanser, so it's a good idea to add a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar with a teaspoon of Manuka honey to a glass of warm water. Drink this three times daily, 10 minutes before eating. Just make sure the ACV you buy is organic apple cider vinegar and still contains the "mother" apple. By giving your body an internal cleanse, it will have a reduced level of toxic build up (after around 2-3 weeks of initial detoxing), which of course means less smelly odors!

Note: If you have sensitive skin and find the ACV too harsh, you can use lemon juice instead which works exactly the same.

Natural Remedy for Body Odor #2... Baking Soda: This is my personal favorite and the one I use myself. Baking soda is a natural deodorant that absorbs sweat and kills bacteria under the armpits. Many natural deodorants contain baking soda because it works so well. Just mix up equal parts of baking soda and cornstarch. Apply this directly onto your dry underarms to prevent sweating as well as bad odor. This remedy works a treat when you need protection for several hours (or even all day).

Natural Cure for Body Odor #3... Green Foods: Taking a green food supplement such as wheat grass, chlorella or spirulina every day is a great way to naturally prevent body odor. These foods are rich in chlorophyll, which is a natural body deodorizer.

Natural Treatment for Body Odor #4... Witch Hazel: This amazing stuff helps with so many things, including body odor. Witch hazel not only kills odor causing bacteria, it also helps to reduce the production of sweat (in a good way though). Simply soak a cotton ball in witch hazel and apply under the armpits when needed.

Home Remedy for Body Odor #5... Digestion and Gut Health: Having healthy digestion and lots of good bacteria in the gut are crucial for the prevention and treatment of body odor. When the gut is not working properly, food is not digested properly, which causes foul smelling gas (both internally and externally!). So eating a healthy diet loaded with fruits and vegetables, along with taking a good quality probiotic supplement will go a long way to stopping your underarms from smelling like something just died under there without your knowing!

Hope this helps you Freddie.

Good luck and all the best!

Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda Are the Best!
by: Cheryl

I use the apple cider vinegar at night by putting some on 20 minutes before I have a shower (then washing off in the shower). The baking soda I use in the morning just like I would a deodorant. Trust me, this works amazing! Even during the hot summer, I never get B.O. and I even perspire less.

Oh and by the way, love the great tips in these Q&A articles!
