Everyone wants to smell good and appear fresh and clean. You can manage to smell beautiful without much of a hassle in winters but things aren’t the same in summer. If you lead a busy life and stay outside a lot, then it can be challenging to fend off unpleasant body odour.
Using a deodorant or antiperspirant right after bathing can help you to smell good, but the smell will fade in some time. Artificial fragrances and body sprays are often made from petroleum or chemicals that can cause skin irritation and don’t work too well with the fragrance.
You can use the natural aroma of products that exist in the nature around you. Here are some effective deodorants that you can make at home to cover body odour.
Squeeze two lemons. Add a few drops of rose water and mineral water to it. Add a few drops of almond oil and give it a good mix. Store the mixture in a cool place and use as body spray after a week. Lemon body spray is one of the best to get rid of bacteria that collect after you sweat.
In summer, you can use a lot of fruits as packs and sprays on your skin. You can make one such fruit spray using the peel of an orange. You will need to add a few drops of rose water to the orange peel when you store it before using it on your skin. Orange body spray makes an excellent antiperspirant that stops you from sweating.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar can be used as a summer body spray just the way it is. You can also add a little water to it as may react when used directly on the skin.
To make rose water body spray, you need crushed rose petals and rose water. Add a drop of coconut oil to the rose water. Boil the ingredients over low flame and let it cool. It can be used as a refreshing body spray in summer.
You need a few vanilla sticks to make this body spray. Boil the vanilla sticks in half a cup of milk. If vanilla milk is thick, add some water and use the formulation as a body spray in summer. The formulation cannot be stored for long and should be used within a week.
