A Guide to Improving the Smell and Taste of Your Vagina


Odds are, every woman out there has at one time said to herself, “What’s going on with the smells down there?” When it come to the vagina, there are several things that can have an effect on the odor and taste.

First and foremost, it’s important to remember that it is normal for the vagina to have a smell and taste. It is a body part! And this particular one has nearby sweat glands, changes with hormonal differences, and – let’s be honest – there’s a lot going on down there!

Second, it’s good to keep a good relationship with your lady parts. Know the smells and even ask your partner about the taste. This is the only way you will understand what’s normal for you, and if anything you try brings improvement (or causes decline) to taste and smell. If you or your partner notice a particularly strong odor or taste, this could be a sign of a vaginal infection and you want to have this checked out.

But for now, here are some ideas and information on optimizing the fragrance and flavor of your flower:

Female Hygiene is First

Your vagina is most affected by how clean it is, and how it is cleaned.

Keep the area clean through your normal cleaning regimen, but you might also consider using a different soap on the vaginal exterior (washing inside the vagina can mess with your Ph balance and cause infection and irritation) than you use on the rest of the body. Use mild soaps with no perfumes or dyes.

Rinse, rinse, rinse! Rinsing with extra water helps clear the area of extra build-up and discharge, and can leave the vagina smelling fresh.

Consider shaving. Pubic hair is a trap for sweat and dirt, and can hold odors. You don’t have to completely shave the hair off to see improvement; just consider grooming.
