How to smell good all day

Some people smell good all day every day every minute even in hottest summers. They even leave a trail of fragrance. Few ideas are shared here to smell good all day.

  1. Bathing daily with either scented soap or lotion.
  2. Spraying body spray fragrance mist which suits your body or suits your job culture.
  3. Remove arm pit hair regularly. Scrub with lemon sprinkled with sugar in the armpits and apply Clay mask for example using Aztec Secret – Indian Healing Clay regularly (seriously). This will detoxify and remove any sweaty odors lingering in the arm pits.
  4. Researchers strongly disagree using anti-perspirants as they are linked to breast cancer. Instead use DIY Deodarant – chemical free, natural and lightens dark underarms which will slowly and eventually removes toxins from body and will not sweat with a bad smell.
  5. While doing laundry, wash your clothes in essential oils with either eucalyptus or flower based essential oils. This will leave your clothes smell very good.
  6. Using hair oil Anti Frizz / Smooth/ Shiny/ Healthy / Thick Fragrant Hair Serum which is fragrant.
  7. Some cultures use sambrani (benzoin resin) which smells good. They create smoke using charcoal and let the hair, skin and clothes stay in the smoke for a while. They do this ritual especially for new born babies as they believe that it will also remove negative energies.
  8. Using fragrant diluted essential oils in either body lotion or hand cream and applying regularly or as and when needed.
  9. Spraying perfume in the closet so that clothes can absorb the good smell and leave a beautiful smell trail.

Hope all these ideas are useful. If you have more tips, please feel free to leave in the comments below.

Organizing tip – Basket when having flu / runny nose

We all must have suffered with flu or runny nose at some point in our life. During the sickness, we tend to use lot of soft tissue to blow nose and leave them on coffee table or sofa or bed or bed side table as we are either too sick or too weak to get up and discard properly. And, if there are more persons or kids suffering, there is even a bigger mess of used soft tissues lying around. First of all its very unhygienic to let the virus sit and spread. Second, its a lot of work to clean the mess after.

Here, I share an organizing tip to create an organizer basket which will help you during the process.

The basket consists of

  1. soft tissue box
  2. Used formula box (with the yellow cap) as trash box lined with a grocery plastic bag
  3. hand sanitizer
  4. hand lotion
  5. more plastic bags

As soon as we have used a soft tissue to blow nose, we can put that in the trash box (in my case, reused empty formula box lined with plastic grocery bag). Then quickly sanitize our hands with sanitizer to kill the germs on our hands, and apply lotion as sanitizer tends to dry our hands quickly. The basket is portable hence, can be carried to places wherever we go.

We can either add or delete some items in the box. You may want to include some essential oils or vicks vaporub or anything which you find relevant or useful during the suffering / recovering phase.
