Lemon Juice - Best Underarm Deodorant

You probably know lemon juice is good for cough and sore throat. These are two main uses of lemon juice in traditional Chinese medicine. But it has other uses too.

For the past 2 months I've been using fresh lemon juice as an underarm deodorant. And wow does it work! I did not think it would work as well as it does, especially in the sweltering heat and humidity we have here in Southern China right now.

I had been adding lemon juice to my daily vegetable juices and suddenly thought of trying it as an underarm deodorant. It had always kept the fridge smelling clean and fresh so why not?

I squeezed a tablespoon of fresh juice straight into the palm of one hand, then spread it over both palms and applied it to each armpit.

Yes, it stung a little and I noticed for the first few days that my armpit skin was a bit red. So, I stopped doing it for a couple of days and since then I have been doing it every day. It's now been 2 months and not only do I sweat less under my arms, but there is absolutely no bad underarm smell at all.

I have always disliked using regular underarm deodorants. Sure they stop you sweating and smelling, but what might all those chemicals do to your health as they work their way into your body over many years?

If you're concerned about this too, try lemon juice - in my opinion the best underarm deodorant.

If you have any questions about how I use lemon juice as an underarm deodorant or for coughs and sore throat let me know.
