Ladies, if we are being honest, all of us have experienced getting panicked when we notice a weird or unusual smell down there. What many people don’t realise is that there might not be a reason to panic. Having an odour in your pubic region and small changes in it from time to time is completely normal. These smell variations are likely a result of your menstrual cycle, your hygiene habits, or your sexual activity.

However, if you notice a significant change in odour down there, you might not feel comfortable talking about it, but you should definitely NOT ignore it. The best way to describe a normal public odour is musky. During or right after your period, the odour might be more metallic. A “fishy” or other strong odour is not normal and can signal something is amiss.

Dr Natasha Sharma, Sanfe, homegrown feminine hygiene and intimate skincare brand, explains natural ways of keeping the pubic odour in check using proper hygiene and essential oils/oils!

How To Make Your Pubic Region Smell Good?

Practising good hygiene down there is essential to making sure that you don’t have a bad pubic odour. Clean the dermal layer of your pubic region with a gentle intimate wash to rid yourself of dirt, sweat, and dead skin. Never use feminine products with harsh chemicals or additives because they can upset the natural pH down there. Make sure you wipe yourself dry after going to the washroom. Prolonged wetness and moist environment is a breeding ground for many infection-causing bacteria and fungi.

Tea tree oil is a go-to essential oil for many ailments because of its amazing antimicrobial and antifungal properties. Evidence shows that tea tree oil is an effective treatment for yeast infections in the pubic region from Candidiasis and hence can be safely used to prevent them.

2. Lavender oil

Using lavender oil for feminine odour is popular. Not only is it an effective feminine odour remedy and deodorizer, but it can also help treat bacterial vaginosis because it has natural antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties.

Evidence for the effectiveness of coconut oil as a lubricant is so far largely anecdotal. In addition to being a proven moisturizer, coconut oil has antimicrobial and antibacterial properties that may help fight urinary tract infections, yeast infections, and certain drug-resistant infections.
