Perfume Pill

Deodorants, antiperspirants and perfumes could be relegated to the past of scented history if a new creation delivers on its promise to turn perspiration into fragrance. 

How it works? 
Created by a Netherland-based artist, the pill is to be swallowed and is said to have the power to turn skin into an atomiser working with an individual's body metabolism. So, when a person perspires, instead of an odour it delivers perfumedirectly into the body. Also, since we have our own genetic make up, which is unique, yourfragrance will also stand apart. The pill is still in its development stage. Its creator Lucy McCrae along with synthetic biologist Sheref Mansy is hoping that their creation will 'biologically enhance second skin, synthesised directly from the natural processes of the body. 

Would you swallow this pill? 
Vahbbiz Dorabajee, TV actress, says, "If there is a pill which converts sweat into perfume it would be fantastic. There will be no bad odour coming from anyone at parties, in discotheques on the dance floor and even in the gym. Everyone will smell good. The very thought of it is so uplifting. I will surely use it and definitely gift it to people who really need such a discovery." It could have serious side effects Dr Jaishree Manchanda cosmetologist and dermatologist, is sceptical about this invention. She says, "I would like to know what this pill is made of and how it works, for there is a possibility that it may have serious side effects." Ishween Anand, owner of a firm that manufactures natural and fragrant bath and body products, says, "According to me, using perfume pills to eliminate sweat and turn it into fragrance is not a natural process for a person as it is a change in the internal system of one's body. 

In today's world when people are trying to move away from chemicals, the unnecessary intake of these pills filled with chemicals is harmful for the human body. Moreover, fragrance is very mood based. We prefer using different fragrances for casual as well as formal occasions and taking this pill will result in giving us the same fragrance at all points of day which can be very boring and monotonous. However, this may prove to be useful for people who have a permanent problem of bad body odour. But I would consider it only as a temporary solution for eliminating bad odour- something like how using a toothpaste serves as a temporary solution for bad mouth odour . In all as a bath and body products manufacturer, I would not recommend the use of these perfume pills as its always harmful to touch the natural dent."

How to get Rid of Cigarette Smoke Smell

While researching this topic, I asked a relative for some practical advice to rid my house of cigarette smoke. Their answer was immediate and to the point: QUIT SMOKING! Who isn’t tired of hearing that one? The truth is that cigarette smoke permeates into our furniture, our carpets, our walls, our windows, and just about every other nook and cranny in our homes. Us smokers are generally unaware of the smell. The same problem exists in our cars. There are large numbers of people who are allergic to cigarette smoke, or suffer some very serious breathing issues when they come into contact with it. Even the lingering smell of cigarette smoke left in a home or a car by its previous occupants is not just noticeable, but may be close to intolerable to a non-smoker. So if you’re not ready to kick the habit just yet, let’s explore some methods of controlling the cigarette smoke in our environments. Who knows, the next person to bask in your odor may be a hot date or prospective employer and if…

How does a tree neutralise your blog’s carbon footprint?

A question always asked around the net can be answered visiting

How much carbon dioxide does your blog create?

According to a study by Alexander Wissner-Gross, PhD, physicist at Harvard University and environmental activist, an average website causes about 0.02g (0,0008oz.) of carbon dioxide for each visit. Assuming an average blog gets 15,000 visits a month, it has yearly carbon dioxide emissions of 3,6kg (8lb.). This can mainly be tracked back to the immense energy usage from (mainframe) computers, servers, and their cooling systems.

How much carbon dioxide does a tree absorb?

Unfortunately, no precise answer is possible. The carbon dioxide absorption of a tree can differ a lot. The amount of carbon dioxide that a tree can absorb depends on the type of tree, light exposure, le…


With increasing Environment Protection Authority (EPA), WorkSafe and council requirements, dust and odours can no longer be managed with a simple garden hose. In providing a solution, ANOTEC has leveraged its more than 20 years of experience across Australia and New Zealand to reduce business costs and help them find best practice equipment for the task. ANOTEC works with landfills and transfer station owners/operators to provide a custom solution to the challenges within the industry. What is it worth to a company to be issued an abatement notice over a site? That’s compared to paying a modest cost for an odour and dust management solution, allowing you to continue working uninterrupted. The technology utilises pumps to generate microscopic air droplets capable of weighing down and suppressing dust and odour. The key to effective dust suppression is creating minute water droplets in the fine micron range that are a similar size to the dust particles the site manager is hoping to…
