5 Ways to Smell Amazing, Naturally

Published January 28th, 2022

A neck nuzzle that lingers, a hug hello that ends with a compliment on your scent: Smelling good might just be the ultimate confidence boost. Instead of saturating your skin with perfume—which may contain allergens that affect the sensitive folks around you—consider natural ways to smell your absolute best. We promise, it’s easier than you think. 


Go Green: Chlorophyll For Body Odor

Long before it started trending on TikTok, chlorophyll was lauded for its ability to quiet bad odors. Used as far back as 1947 in a medical hospital, devotees insist that the tablet form of this naturally-occurring substance (you may remember it from sixth grade Earth Science as the chemical that gives plants their signature green color)will increase energy and reduce unpleasant body scents. 


Drink Up: Hydration For Better Breath

When you wake up with that distinct air of morning breath, what’s the first thing you do? If you said “grab a glass of water,” you’re well on your way to understanding that hydration can help fend off standard halitosis. One way to maximize your water intake: Add your favorite flavor of Liquid I.V. Hydration Multiplier. While you’re at it, grab a snack. Surprisingly, hunger can also be a cause of bad breath. Post-meal, don’t forget to use a mouthwash with hydrogen peroxide after brushing to kill any lurking bacteria left behind.  


Makeover Your Menu: Nutrition, Sweat, & Odor

Ever notice that after a late night and a few glasses of wine you can smell the alcohol around you? That’s because certain foods—including garlic, onion, spicy foods, and alcohol can make you sweat more, and even seep through your perspiration. Instead, reach for fresh vegetables, fruits and legumes, which may help reduce body odor


Go Toe-to-Toe: Foot Health

Make your feet smell sweet: Exfoliate your feet and hydrate them with a great foot cream. Sprinkle your shoes (especially sneakers) with baby powder to help absorb sweat and reduce smells.  


Do a Gut Check: Probiotics 

What if malodor means more than just a general funk? Body odor can actually be a sign of an unbalanced microbiome and a signal to do something good for your gut. One tip—on top of the probiotics you get from your favorite kombucha, kimchi, kefir and tempeh, consider a quality probiotic supplement that can bring balance to your gut and aid in digestion. Want a skin-friendly shortcut? Mother Dirt Probiotic Spray promises to balance your skin microbiome and even complexion.
