Consider a pH product
Over-the-counter (OTC) products may be helpful in restoring your vagina’s natural pH. If you try one and the odour remains or grows worse, make an appointment with your doctor. You may need to use a different product or look for a stronger prescription alternative.
Try essential oils
This treatment has very little medical research to support it, but anecdotal evidence suggests tea tree oil , a type of essential oil, helps eliminate vaginal odour. This essential oil has natural antimicrobial and antifungal properties, which may help reduce and eliminate bacteria. First, mix a few drops of tea tree oil with water. Then, apply a drop or two to the outside of your vagina. Repeat this for three to five days. If symptoms don’t improve or worsen, discontinue use.
Soak in vinegar
Frequent hot baths and hot showers can upset your natural pH, but one type of bath may be useful. Pour a cup or two of apple cider vinegar into a warm bath and soak for 20 minutes. Vinegar may naturally reduce bacteria.
Home treatments usually help reduce unusual vaginal odour in about a week. If the odour isn’t gone, or if it becomes stronger, you should see a doctor. A strong vaginal odour can be a sign of a larger problem, one that you may be unable to treat on your own. It’s better to see a doctor early, before the problem grows worse.
