How to Use Lemon As Deodorant

A lot of excessive sweating sufferers also suffer from a condition known as "Bromhidrosis". Bromhidrosis is an excessive odor that accompanies your sweat. It's a real bummer. If you don't have bad armpit odor along with your sweating, consider yourself lucky.

There are a lot of Bromhidrosis sufferers out there who WISH their only problem was perspiration wetness. Fortunately, if you do suffer from excessive armpit odor, you do have a solution. You can use lemon as deodorant. No, I'm not kidding. Actually this solution works well with a lime too, but for the sake of this posting, I'll be showing you how to use lemon as deodorant.

It's no mystery that lemon is acidic. That's where its powers in how to use lemon as a deodorant lay. Cut a lemon in half. When you get out of the shower, make sure you dry off completely.

Gently rub the lemon into your armpits. Don't just do this once. Using lemon as deodorant isn't just a quick fix. It's more of a way to "condition" your underarms to stop smelling bad.

When you use lemon as deodorant, you are saturating your underarm Apocrine Glands with the acidic juices. Your Apocrine glands are the ones responsible for creating the foul odor. Apocrine glands release secretions from inside the body. Bacteria is naturally attracted to these secretions before they leave your body.

When the bacteria release toxins and waste into these secretions, it gives the secretions a foul odor. By knowing how to use lemon as deodorant, you neutralize the bacteria in the secretions with the citris acid.

Be wary of dryness or redness once you know how to use lemon as deodorant. Sometimes the citris acid might be too strong for your skin to handle. Practice how to use lemon as deodorant everyday for a week and you'll see a gradual yet noticeable difference in your underarm odor.

Lemon verbena needs a light, warm soil and, in all but the mildest gardens, a sheltered sunny wall as well. Alternatively it can be grown in a large pot and overwintered indoors. Lemon verbena produces a sharp, lemon-scented essential oil used in cosmetics for oily skins and used extensively in the perfume industry. It should be used with caution in skin preparations as it may cause irritation. The flowers and leaves of the herb are not particularly pungent but can be used in bath bags.

Lemon is NOT acidic it is alkaline!!

It is actually both...

Outside the body, lemon juice is acidic (pH is below 7). This is a non-issue. Everyone knows this. It’s a citrus fruit.

Inside the body however, when lemon juice has been fully metabolized and its minerals are dissociated in the bloodstream, its effect is alkalizing and therefore raises the pH of body tissue (pH above 7 is alkaline). Please notice the difference.
