Home remedies that will help with sweaty armpits/underarms

Updated on May 12, 2012

Sweating is medically known as hyperhidrosis and it affects different parts of the body armpits, feet and hands. Sometimes antiperspirants do not work when it is too hot and there are other ways to limit sweating like home remedies.

Herbal Tea- especially herbal teas that contain sage are effective with reducing sweat because Sage is rich in magnesium and vitamin B that helps with decreasing stimulation of sweat glands. Drink a cup or two a day but do not boil the sage too long.

Body Powders- are strong and work well for both men and women. For men combine cornstarch as base: mix ¼ of cornstarch, 4 teaspoons of fine sandalwood powder, and 3 drops of jasmine oil, lime essential oil and sandalwood oil each. For women mix ½ of cornstarch, 3 drops of rose, lavender and orange oil each and 3 teaspoons of sifted dried lavender flowers. Store in a container with a lid and leave for about five days for the scent of oils to be absorbed and apply after shower or bath.

Apple Cider Vinegar- some people apply vinegar on their underarms, let it dry, and then get dressed.

Baking Soda- helps by absorbing the sweat and kills bacteria. Dust some baking soda under your armpits after you take a bath.

Turnips- grate turnips, take the juice, and apply on your armpits it helps reduce odors and sweat.

Camphor’s astringent properties can provide relief to sweaty armpits, mix camphor powder and water and apply on your armpits.

Botox- you can go for botox if money is not an issue and its not a permanent fix but it will ease sweating for months. It is also risky.

Deoderants- always chose deodorants that have Aluminium chloride it helps with controlling sweating and kills bacteria in the process. Avoid deodorants that cointain alcohol because they only make sweating worse.

Change of diet is also essential some foods like garlic, coffee, beer and chili can make a person sweat.

      What are the risks for Botox?

      My secret weapons are Hibiclens and chlorophyll tablets. That combination removes all human scent.
