Hi I'm Trina Sims of Green Star Herbs and I'm here today to talk about some home remedies of armpit sweating. Now sweating is a natural and healthy process that helps the body eliminate some toxins. On the other hand it can become unpleasant if it is excessive or foul smelling. The first thing to address is diet. There are some foods that can help make the smell from sweat stronger. These include of course all strong smelling foods, strong cheeses, things like onions and garlic. I'm sure you can add to that list, dairy products, coffee, white flour and other processed foods and foods with preservatives can also increase the odor factor. Spicy and hot foods promote excessive sweating as well so we might want to look at all these elements of the diet to see about pulling back or eliminating some of them. Do go ahead and add raw, leafy greens and vegetables to your diet, salads are great, get used to adding a lot of your vegetables just sliced into your salads. A number of herb teas can be helpful. Classically sage tea which is very pleasant to drink really helps dry up sweat especially when used for several days in a row. Some others that can help are violet, rose, lemon grass and hibiscus teas. All of these are considered very cooling. Also mints except for peppermint. Peppermint can also warm us up a bit and can also promote sweating. Another option is to make our own natural deodorants. There are a number of herbs that can be steeped in a choice of base liquids. Some of those liquids are witch hazel, grain alcohol, diluted 50/50 with water, apple cider vinegar or distilled vinegar, also diluted 50/50 with water, rose water or orange water. All of these make very pleasant, very useful bases for a natural deodorant. Now among the herbs that can be steeped in those liquids are fennel seed, chaparral, patchouli, thyme, white willow bark, dried bitter orange peel. You might add a few drops of lavender oil or ceder or pine essential oil. You can also use bay, rosemary, your common garden sage, yarrow which grows throughout the country very easily and in South or in hot climates Saneso or silver sage. I hope this has given you some ideas about pleasant ways to approach our pit sweating. Thank you.
