Body Odor Helpppp

Posted , 8 users are following.

Okay, I've been dealing with under arm body odor, and the smell is nasty to me. I've tried all types of organic deodorants, the ones with aluminum give me breast pain, so I try to avoid them, but use them only in emergencies. I shower daily, but sometimes when I'm out shopping or at work I have to wash my under arms to get rid of the smell. Baking soda makes me stink more., vinegar is not for everyday. Is anyone dealing with this yet? I know the ph of our bodies change during this phase but this is too stinky! Any suggestions to this awful smell?

    I too have the smilar problem. I never remember my under armpits smells much in the past but last couple of years so there is certainly a different smelly smell. I feel very uncomfortable and emberrassed about it. I also tend to smell behind my ears, top part if the ear!(I wear glasses all day) It is awful. Even after a good shower and wash the smell cones back. I will also appreciate any comments /suggestions on these too. Thank you

    Its a serious problem that most women wont address publicly, I have had it too and its bad. I found regular deodarants gave me lumps under my arms and breast pain, because of the aluminum, I AVOID it like the plague especially since as you know I have problems with cysts, swellings. I use baking soda in the tub along with natural lotions from the health food store. Lemon juice from pure lemons has helped me a lot with smelling better. I drink it.

    Have you thought of carrying around moist towelettes, you can get organic kind with no nasty stuff.

    i did an experiment.. I really upped my water intake , I'd say ten glasses , most of the day I was drinking water, anyway kept this up for a few days and  for the first time I didn't wear deodorant and I sweat but it didn't smell! I've gone a week without wearing it, usually for me if I forget I will literally start sweating smelly sweat by the time I've jumped in the car!

     So maybe there's something in flushing yourself out..

    alternatveky try try coconut oil with a drop of essential oil.

    ps I only use natural deodorants so I can testify a lot of them make you smell worse once sweat mixes in with them.

      You've got me thinking now, as I mentioned I've used it for years and on checking your are correct about the aluminium content and also the risks for cancer/Alzheimer's associated which I was not aware of.  I did some searching and will try Pitrock which seems to be aluminium free and reviewed as working well.
