Home Remedies for Odor changes (body or breath odor)

Water

After each meal, thoroughly rinse your mouth with 1-2 mouthfuls of water. Regular rinsing can dislodge trapped food particles and keep oral bacteria at bay.

Tea Tree Oil

Add a single drop of tea tree oil to your regular amount of toothpaste or mouthwash every other day. Its strong antiseptic properties can eliminate oral bacteria effectively.

Baking Soda

For teeth: Brush with a mix of equal parts baking soda and your regular toothpaste once a day. For underarms: Combine baking soda with enough water to create a paste-like consistency and spread lightly. Allow it to dry before dressing.

Parsley

After consuming foods with strong odors (e.g., garlic, onions), chew on 1-2 fresh parsley sprigs. Parsley can neutralize the sulfur compounds that cause bad breath.

Probiotics

Consume a serving of probiotic-rich yogurt daily, preferably unsweetened. Probiotics can combat harmful gut bacteria which can lead to body odor.

Green Tea

Incorporate 2-3 cups of green tea into your daily routine. Its polyphenols can inhibit growth of bacteria in the mouth.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Gargle with a solution made of 1 tablespoon ACV mixed in a cup of water each morning. ACV's acidic nature can prohibit bacteria growth in the mouth.

Tongue Scraping

Incorporate tongue scraping into your morning and night oral hygiene routines. A clean tongue can significantly reduce bad breath.

Lemon

Upon waking, consume a glass of warm water infused with juice from half a freshly squeezed lemon. This can help flush out toxins, possibly reducing body odor.

Witch Hazel

After cleansing the underarm area, apply witch hazel using a cotton ball. Let it dry before putting on clothes. Witch hazel's acidic nature can reduce skin pH, discouraging bacterial growth.

Rosemary Oil

Prepare a diluted solution using 3-5 drops of rosemary oil and 1 tablespoon of a carrier oil (like jojoba or coconut). Apply to areas prone to odor after bathing.

Epsom Salt

For a detoxifying bath, dissolve 2 cups of Epsom salt in warm bathwater and soak for at least 20 minutes. The magnesium in Epsom salt can aid in neutralizing odors.

Sage Tea

Brew sage tea by steeping 1-2 teaspoons of dried sage in hot water for 10 minutes. Drink once daily or apply cooled tea externally to areas prone to sweating.

Fenugreek Seeds

Start your morning with a cup of fenugreek tea, made by boiling 1 teaspoon of seeds in 500 ml of water until it reduces to half.

Fennel Seeds

Consume a 1/2 teaspoon of fennel seeds post meals. Besides aiding digestion, fennel can refresh your breath naturally.

Neem Oil

For topical application, dilute 5-10 drops of neem oil in 100 ml of water. Spray or apply with a cotton ball to areas prone to odor. If using as a mouth rinse, ensure to spit and not swallow.

Cornstarch

Use a soft cloth or puff to apply cornstarch, especially in crevices and areas prone to sweat. Its moisture-absorbing properties can keep you dry.

Drink Water

Hydrate consistently throughout the day. Regular water consumption aids in flushing out waste and toxins which can contribute to odors.

Avoid Pungent Foods

Monitor your diet and note which foods cause noticeable odor changes. Limit consumption of identified foods like strong spices, garlic, and onions.
