As sensitive as this issue may seem, it’s a real thing every woman has to deal with at a certain time in life.
Good news is, nature has blessed us with some remedies that help combat any ‘nunu’ scent around the vaginal area. Let’s see five simple household items we can effectively use.
This spice works wonders in clearing all unpleasant odour down there. It is also a quick tool to treat yeast infection. How to do it? Gently insert a clove of garlic into the vagina at night time and rinse it out by morning. Do this daily and the V-area will be cleared off all odours and yeast infection.
2. Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) and salt bath
Make a solution of water, ACV and granulated salt. Sit in this bathtub for about 30 minutes, then rinse the V-area with fresh water.
We all know alum is used domestically for water purification. On the other hand, it does a great job at treating the vag too. Simply dissolve a cube of alum in a few cups of water. Ensure the alum is totally dissolved, then rinse the vag with the solution. The great news is that this remedy helps tighten the vagina as well.
4. Baking soda
As awkward as this may sound, baking soda or Bicarbonate of soda balances the pH level around the vaginal area and provides a good environment that will dissipate any unpleasant odour. Fill a bathtub with water and add about 5 spoons of baking soda. Submerge in this solution for 30-45 minutes, and then rinse with fresh water.
5. Hydrogen Peroxide
This item is able to stop all microbial actions that produce unpleasant scents in the vagina. Add a tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide to a cup of water, wash the vag with the solution and rinse again with normal tap water.
