Natural remedies to get rid of body odour

Body odour can be caused by several factors such as poor hygiene, cleanliness, bacteria, sweat, medical conditions and so on.

On the bright side, it is possible to eliminate body odour and smell fresh at all times but this requires discipline and determination. The following home remedies can help eliminate odour;

Use vinegar

Bacteria cause body odour and they require an environment with a high pH to grow. Vinegar works to reduce the pH of the environment it is applied to. Here are some ways you can use vinegar;

  • Soak a cotton ball in vinegar and apply to your under arms.
  • Put some vinegar in a sprayer or applicator bottle and apply to your underarms after bath.
  • Dilute some vinegar in water and rinse your underarms with it while bathing.

Use lemon juice

Lemon works like vinegar to reduce the pH and make the environment unsuitable for bacteria to grow. How you can use lemon juice;

  • You can cut a lemon into half and rub it directly to your underarms.
  • You can squeeze out the lemon juice and apply it to your underarms.
  • If lemon is too acidic for your skin, you can dilute it with water and apply to your skin.

Baking Soda and lime juice mixture

For people who do not sweat a lot but have body odour, lime or vinegar should do, but if you sweat a lot and still have odour, this is an appropriate therapy for you. Baking soda absorbs sweat, eliminates bacteria and acts as a natural deodorant. This is how to use it;

  • Before having your bath, mix lemon juice and baking soda into a paste.
  • Apply to your underarms and leave for about 10 to 15 minutes
  • Wash off and have your bath.

Orange peels

Orange peels can be used to get rid of strong and offensive odours. Their mechanism of action is similar to that of lemon and vinegar. They act by reducing the pH and preventing the growth of bacteria.


Having your bath alone cannot rid you of body odour. Use mild-to-skin deodorants such as Rexona after you shower. Apply at least twice a day, meaning you must shower at least twice a day, once in the morning and again at night/evening.
