Home Remedies to control body odour

Body odour can come from any part of the body as part of the regulation of body functions. Sweat eliminates toxins from the body. Sweat may cause an unpleasant body odour when it is mixed with bacteria.

Apart from the natural process, certain medical conditions like diabetes, cancer, some infectious diseases, anxiety etc., also cause body odour. Besides, hormonal changes also cause body odour.

Though many deodorants are available in the market to get rid of body odour, it is not advisable to use them for a long time due to their harmful chemical components.

Regular bathing, wearing fresh clothes and eating a healthy diet can help reduce your chances of developing unpleasant body odour.


Here are certain home remedies to control body odour:

Oils like coconut oil, lavender oil, peppermint oil, sage oil etc., are one of the best natural remedies to combat body odour. You can combine various oils and use them. Or you can make a paste with the oil, baking soda and corn starch to apply to your underarms and other areas that are more prone to body odour.

Epsom salt is another wonderful home remedy to get rid of an unpleasant body odour. Fill a bucketful of hot water and pour one cup of Epsom salt into it. Use this water for bathing. It not just eliminates your body odour but helps relax the body.

Applying apple cider vinegar to your underarms and other body parts after bathing can help combat body odour. You can directly apply apple cider vinegar or dilute it by mixing water.

Make fenugreek tea by boiling one teaspoon of fenugreek seeds in 200 ml of water until the water reduces to half. Drinking fenugreek tea helps combat body odour by eliminating toxins from your body.

Make a paste with baking soda and apply this to odour-prone areas of the body. Leave it for 15 minutes and wash it off with lukewarm water.
