How to smell good naturally

Smell good naturally

Deodorants and perfumes today is a difficult choice to use for smelling good considering the harmful chemicals that they might be having. You also do your bit for the environment by using natural products.

Fragrance oils

If you really want to get rid of harmful perfumes and deodorants, there are fragrance oils that you can use.

The flavors these oils are available in include:

  • Peppermint
  • Ginger
  • Lemongrass
  • Sage
  • Rose
  • Vanilla
  • Citrus(Orange/lemon)

Citrus and mint oils tend to energize, vanilla and lavender tend to calm. On an hectic day, a drop of lavender or vanilla on your hand can calm you down.

Precautions with fragrance oils

All oils might not be suitable for everyone. Rosemary is stimulant and hence bad for people with blood pressure. If you are pregnant or have allergies, it’s always better to consult a doctor before trying any of the fragrance oils.

Lemon and baking soda

Lemon rubbed on the armpits and a light dusting of baking soda can be used as a natural deodorant. The acid of the lemon restricts the pores which make you sweat less and baking soda acts as an absorbent.

Yoga and exercises

Yoga and exercises will make you sweat profusely which releases toxins. If you sweat profusely, that will keep bad smell out of your body as the toxins are released.

Dark leafy greens

Green leafy vegetables like chard, spinach and parsley containing chlorophyll have a deodorizing effect on the body. Eat them to have this effect. And avoid meats as much as possible.
