revised At what age will my female cousin become forbidden for me to touch?
-ft:"The above question discusses touch in general. There exists one related question (soon to be closed and/or deleted): "After my female cousin reaches a certain age, it'll become forbidden for me to hug her. What age?"

comment If someone requests charity during the blessings of Shema, may I give it?
@Bochur613: Thank you for the link. But my Internet filter blocks Youtube, I don't want to bother setting up a whitelist rule, and I'm not even sure that my web browser can play video anyway. Can you please summarize the linked video for us?

revised Near a bad smell, one might want to do Sh'ma, the Amidah, blessings, study, or think Torah. Is halacha equally strict about all five acts?

+1, but I'm still confused. For example: "Davening While Sweaty" addresses davening but not the other four matters. It says: "It is forbidden to daven while sweaty [...] if the smell is so strong that it causes acute discomfort." Whenever one act is forbidden, are the other four acts also forbidden? The responsum continues, "It is permitted, however, to daven while sweaty, if the smell is not so foul as to disturb." Whenever one act is permitted, are the other four also permitted? Please edit your answer and clarify.

comment If someone has BO and can't smell themselves, may they say blessings?
Today, I found a responsum entitled "Davening While Sweaty". But it doesn't seem to address the case where one can't smell one's own BO.

You can buy all sorts of obscure products on Ebay. After you do your search, click the "Worldwide" radio button to broaden your search. I haven't tried searching Ebay for this. But have you? What search keywords did you try? Did you find the oil you seek?
