Chlorophyll water is the latest craze on TikTok, and for a good reason! It’s a refreshing way to keep your body from smelling bad. But what is chlorophyll water?
Chlorophyll has been used for centuries to stop bad smells from coming out of our bodies. It’s also good for stopping acne and working against bacteria in your mouth! So yes - chlorophyll water is a pretty cool thing!
In this article, we explore this trending beauty ingredient and uncover just how effective it is for making you smell amazing.
Chlorophyll has a natural bacteria-fighting property that helps combat the odor of sweat.
According to holistic health practitioner Daisey Miller, “[Liquid chlorophyll] stimulates the immune system, gets rid of bad body odor, helps with inflammation, cleans your intestines, and detoxes blood.”
The health expert says she drinks it every day to enjoy its plethora of health and beauty benefits.
She later adds, “I have your new best friend. Chlorophyll water girls. Just pop a teaspoon of this in each glass of water you have every day and just watch. Not only does it make you smell good, but if makes you taste good. Sweet, like berries.”
There are lot of benefits to chlorophyll water for skin, too. It can help with eczema, psoriasis, and other things like sunburns or heat rash.
It can even help with acne. That’s because chlorophyll water enhances liver detoxification processes, resulting in fewer toxins in the blood stream, which promotes a clearer, healthier complexion.
Influencers are speaking out about chlorophyll water and its effectiveness.
One of those influencers is Suede Brooks, who admitted to being reluctant to trying it at first, deeming it a fad. But she eventually came around to giving it a try and saw for herself how much it improved her body odor.
“I’ve been drinking this for the past four days and I don’t smell. I’ve been sweating since it’s so hot outside, and my sweat literally smells like sugar plum, gum drop, sugar cake. It’s so yummy,” she said on TikTok.
Another influencer, Jaci Marie Smith, also tried the chlorophyll water experiment to test its efficiency.
“We’re going to try the chlorophyll water today,” Smith told her 433,000 followers. “This is supposed to make it so your sweat doesn’t smell bad [and it’s] also good for your skin, and it has like a ton of health benefits.”
Look on Instagram and you’ll see for yourself how popular this green water is.
It Can Also Get Rid of Bad Breath
Besides making your body smell good, chlorophyll water can also improve breath odor. So instead of relying on mints to freshen up your breath, try chlorophyll water instead.
“Chlorophyll is an excellent internal deodoriser,” says pharmacist and co-founder of Victoria Health Shabir Daya. “Instead of masking odours as deodorants do, chlorophyll appears to work by getting rid of the odour causing compounds.”
In other words, it attacks the underlying odors rather than simply covering them. So you can get to the underlying issues and enjoy long-term better-smelling breath.
“Chlorophyll helps to relieve bad breath, body odour and perspiration odour effectively - in fact, there was even a well-known chewing gum which contained chlorophyll within the formulation,” she adds.
Fancy enjoying the benefits of chlorophyll water yourself?
It’s easy to make! Just grab some filtered water and put in about a teaspoon of chlorophyll powder (you can get this at any health food store). Stir it well until the chlorophyll dissolves, keep stirring for two minutes, then drink. You’ll have fresh-smelling body odor for the rest of the day.
Sure, it’s not the best tasting drink you’ll ever try, but at least you won’t have to worry about B.O ever being an issue.
Bacteria-combatting soaps are also effective in cleaning the skin and reducing odors. You’ve probably also heard a lot about them in recent day on TikTok. That’s because they’re trending – big time!
However, the main downside to these products is that they’re incredibly drying. Using them regularly isn’t the best way to improve body odor if you want to maintain smooth, hydrated skin. It’s better to try chlorophyll water or simply use a hydrating body cleanser like Truly’s Moon Jelly Adaptogenic Body Cleanser.

For longer-lasting effects, smell-wise, there are some tricks for holding on to better smelling body odors.
Try applying a little Aquaphor on the wrists, then dab on Truly’s Unicorn Fruit Butter for long-lasting sweetness. Using these two products will help lock in improved body scent and make it last more than a couple of hours.
Besides guzzling down this odor-sweetening green water, what else can you do to improve your natural scent and how can you prevent it from happening in the first place?
