Better But With Side Effects

Hi All, I discovered this website several weeks ago and have been so excited about the body odour remedies. I tried BS about a year ago which worked but stained my under-arms so badly. Then having found this site, started drinking ACV which I think has improved my energy levels. I also apply ACV to my skin after cleansing. The skin appears brighter and so soft. My big issue is body odour though. I started applying ACV to my under-arms which worked for a couple of weeks but I started noticing the stained under-arms so have stopped. Drinking ACV has made no difference to my BO. However I am going to try all the other remedies listed on the site in turn - GSE, milk of magnesia, colon cleansing etc. Great site!

Worked Temporarily

Yes, the same for me. It worked really well for around a week and I was stoked! Then it lasted shorter and shorter amounts of time. Back to the deodorant.

UnderArm Odor

Hello, I have read many posts here and tried several remedies. The most successful was Organic ACV, it has worked for almost 8mos, the most amount of time for any remedy so far. Well now I'm back to the normal horribly embarrassing smell I've had to deal with for 14 yrs.

I stopped deoderants last year, the ACV was effective but now when I use it, either apply and wash off, or apply w/ baking soda & leave on all day, it's almost like I have no protection. My arms smell horrible, and of course my clothes as well.

Is there any hope for me? It seems that almost any remedy I try may work for a few months then I'm back to the ususal stinky, strong odor!

Worked Temporarily

Apple Cider Vinegar worked temporarily as a replacement for deodorant. I followed the advice here and started using ACV before I showered, rinsing it off after a few minutes, but not washing it off. The first time I used it I was thrilled. It lasted 2 1/2 days with absolutely no body odor. But the longer I used it, the less effective it was. After a month, it wasn't even lasting a whole day.

So I'm off to try the crystal deodorant in my quest for a natural deodorant that works consistantly.
