To be honest I don't really see the problem with using like a cap full or something in bath water but like douching with it (a no no) or wiping it thru your vajayjay just seems to be asking for a yeast infection or BV. It already makes hydrogen peroxide to clean itself and you don't wanna mess up an already strict balance.

Diluted ACV (like soaking in a bath) is actually used to naturally treat yeast infections.
To answer your question OP, I would drink it rather than use it topically in that area. If you are looking for something to reduce body odor overall, try using Chlorophyll. I take it (drops in my water) on a regular basis and during my "time" there is almost no smell at all.
Yes I use this as a douche, I love it. I also drink apple cider vinegar in the am. However, odors shouldn't be that serious when your on your period that you would have to douche during that time and douching a lot is bad because your vagina is self cleansing. I do it once every two months and I do also dilute it with water. Also taking baths with apple cider vinegar is great if you feel you have a yeast infection coming or anything like that, it gets everything back to balance. Everything in moderation.
naw I don't douche..just let it flow naturally...but I have discovered a little secret with coconut oil...... seriously.. swipe that shit across ur vagina and ud be fuckin refreshed... i have also used it as a lube.. no damage done.. and im very wary about using shit in , near or on my puz... my shit is sensitive. nothing but soap and water..now i swipe with coconut oil..
coconut oil is antibacterial. I have heard of people using it as lubricant, lol.
douching is not a pussy killer, i mean some of you seriously, get real.
it washes away the natural balancing composition of your vagina yes, but guess what, your vagina bounces back pretty easily.
I have never done it, but I have used diluted hydrogen peroxide and water and the same website I got that info from suggested ACV also as a douche. Although it is acidic, its effects on the body are actually alkalizing. Look it up for yourself if you please. I would dilute it thoroughly though.
This is the thing, yes the vagina needs to be ph balanced and stuff and it is self regulating, but when the bacteria overgrowth is sooooo bad, like yeast infection bad, you need to wash all that out before you try to replenish it with good bacteria.
That is where ACV or hydrogen peroxide comes in. I would use either of those over summers eve. And for those of you acting as if vinegar in the pussy is soooo unimaginable, I do believe summers eve has a douche called vinegar and water, so obviously some expert somewhere recognized its benefits. Douches are not inherently evil, they just dont need to be done at all if everything else is in order. Sometimes little things, natural things can throw the ph balance off, thats why PROBIOTICS are in order cuz they keep the good bacteria strong enough to check the bad bacteria. So if you wanted to douche with something rather strong like ACV, you need to for sure get some probiotics in your system at the same time, the ACV I believe is washing away both the good and bad bacteria, which is not good, unless youre replenishing the good bacteria.
