Have you ever smelled a whiff of something and said to yourself “is that me?” I do this all the time and I’m happy to say that the answer is “No.” Clearly the smell was coming from the commuter next to me or unfortunate homeless person I just passed in the street.
In the past, before I decided to live in a healthy state of mind and began consistently juicing, sometimes it was me. For instance, when I ate meat, starches, sugar and not enough raw vegetables, the toxins would build up in your body and show up through body odor(despite good hygiene), constipation, rashes and pimply skin.
I’ve read articles explaining that our diets affect how we smell—like even your vajayjay—so I decided to make a juice that has proven odor- and bacteria-fighting ingredients. By consuming raw juice with the right nutrients over time, it seems, we can slowly improve our core body odor so that we smell sweeter in general. You will need the following: - 1 turnip Turnips are a known bacteria- and smell-killer (you can actually use raw turnip juice as a natural deodorant!). I love cooked turnips, but never juiced them so I was extremely wary about juicing them, but guess what? Raw turnips are nearly tasteless and slightly sweet—perfect for juicing! - 2 cups (more is fine) fresh pineapple How many things have you read about improving your vajayjay smell that involve pineapple? Because I’ve read exactly 600 articles too many. But here’s the thing: we keep hearing about pineapple in this context because it actually works. Pineapple is incredibly sweet and citrusy, and it helps our bodies to knock out odor-causing bacteria. Drink and eat extra pineapple, and you might notice a subtle change in the way you or your partner smells. - 2 peeled limes (no need to de-seed) The acids in citrus fruit help flush water through your system, and fresh citrus helps to kill musky-type smells that hang out on your skin. - 1 handful each of fresh mint and parsley These lil’ green bundles of freshness are odor-fighting powerhouses, using their strong oils to combat bad breath and bacterial odors.
Wash everything, then toss in your juicer or blender, and hit the “on” button. If you’re blending, add a cup of water to help liquefy your fruits and veggies. This mixture will be a vibrant, bright yellow-green, and it’s tangy-sweet, with strong limey overtones. It makes you pucker up, and it’s super delicious over ice!
You’ll get roughly 15 ounces of fresh juice out of the recipe, which you’ll need to keep in the fridge in an airtight container (stir before drinking). Mason jars are a perfect storage vessel—try 16 ounce ones, the ideal serving size. Drink it all up within two days of making it. And then make it again and again and again, until you’re satisfied that your pores leak only sweetness and your fevered brow is as aromatically pleasing as a summer’s morn.
