Would You Eat Deodorant to Battle B.O.?

by Lexi Petronis, Glamour

I think we can pretty much all agree that it sucks to stink. But would you forgo a few swipes of deodorant under your arms for a deodorant that you eat instead?

Banking on the idea that what you eat can directly impact how you smell, Deo Perfume Candy contains geraniol, a component of rose oil that supposedly "aromatizes" as it's exuded through your skin, producing a "beautiful rose fragrance." One serving of the "nutricosmetic" candy--four pieces--contains 12 mg of geraniol, but the strength and duration of its effects depend upon how much you weigh (the four-piece serving size is recommended to someone weighing 145 pounds). The candy's deodorizing effects are supposed to last for six hours.

But experts aren't convinced.

But whether eating something can make it exude through your pores... it's just never been demonstrated."
