This is late, but take things simple, the easiest and cheapest way to be odorless is to put litlle of baking soda to place where the bad odor is coming from. I'm using under armpits, every other day, just little, and no odor at all. Cheap and no chemicals.

I know this is a bit late but maybe it can help someone. If you are on narcotic pain medications it can cause more body oder too.

Start by taking a chlorophyll supplement orally. Gillette Odor Shield soap soap does wonders. It says Mens, but I'm a female, works great for me! Then I have a trick.

I buy the less expensive witch hazel at Wal-Mart, but it doesn't matter which bottle of witch hazel you use. I get the size bottle of a standard size bottle, I think it's 16oz, but not positive on size.

Take 1 bottle of witch hazel and separate it in half. (Put half in a different bottle) In one bottle add 2 or 3 drops of peppermint oil, 2 or 3 drops of tea tree oil, & two or 3 drops of lemongrass oil. Shake that up and use that when you move your bowels and wipe. It also will help you avoid or clear up hemorrhoids if you get them.

In the 2nd bottle add about 4 or 5 drops of peppermint oil, 4 or 5 drops of tea tree oil, 5 or 6 drops of lemon grass oil, and 4 or 5 drops of grapefruit oil. Then add 2 or 3 tablespoons of rubbing alcohol, I like to use the green kind with the minty smell. You can also add lemon juice (2 or 3 tablespoons if you need it a little stronger). After you shower (or if you need a quick freshen up with out bathing) make sure your body is completely dried off. Put some of the tincture mixture on a towel or wash cloth. Blot arm bits and other problem areas that sweat too much. (I wouldn't recommend that on privates, too strong, use 1st mixture on that area if you need.) Then blot dry any left over moisture from the product. Use your antiperspirant/deodorant after application. If you need to make deodorant mix same amounts, except 1 teaspoon rubbing alcohol, 2 teaspoons of witch hazel with 4 or 5 tablespoons of melted coconut oil. Put a plastic sandwich bag in a toilet paper roll. Poor mix into your toilet paper roll and put in freezer or fridge to harden. Store in a cool area. It works great for a natural antiperspirant and a deodorant.

1 more option for a quick hair cleanup is make above mix for the armpit towel blotting, but omit the rubbing alcohol. You can dump it on your scalp and brush it through your hair. It will help with itchy scalp and give your hair a quick temporary clean feel...

I hope this information comes in handy for someone! I live by it! ☺
