Well, odors are created from the waste of bacterial activity. Certain conditions such as darkness, warmth and dampness promote increased bacterial activity.
Humans have sweat glands located in our armpits, groin and feet. These areas often provide the perfect conditions for bacteria and other microbes to thrive and cause body odor.
The application of a Lemon Myrtle essential oil based deodorant kills unwanted bacteria, fungus and even viruses which inhabit those warm moist areas, leaving only a fresh zesty lemon aroma.
Lemon Myrtle oil is intensely strong and could be injurious to your skin if applied undiluted.
Check the ingredients labels of your deodorants before purchase.
