How to Combat Body Odor Naturally and Easily

Though it can be a giant nuisance, sweating is generally healthy and often necessary.  Not only does it cool the body, but it also eliminates toxins. Sweat is produced by glands in the skin, which respond to not only heat, but also stress, anger, nervousness and a host of other conditions. Bacteria that love this sweat grow and multiply, and as they break down the sweat fluids, they produce that unpleasant odor.

    • Stress, anger, nervousness or extreme excitement
    • Skin infection
    • Serious illness, such as kidney disease, fungal infections, liver disease, etc.
