Body odourAll joint areas in the body are incubation areas that perspire highest during summers. When sweat mixes with bacteria there, it causes odour. Here are some home remedies:

Dip Alum Rock Salt also known as Fitgiri in water and rub it on your armpits, the sole of your feet and other heavy perspiration areas. It helps keep the skin dry and avoids odour.

Add 2-3 drops of pure essential oils in bathing water to avoid bad odour.

Use alcohol or white vinegar to wash the armpits. Place some white vinegar on a cotton ball and apply on the underarms. The vinegar smell vanishes within minutes and leaves you feeling good the whole day.

Put some drops of rose water in the bathtub before taking a bath. A deodorant is also not required after this lotion is used.

Use baby powder or talc in areas with high perspiration instead of deodorant.
