What, if any, modern-day hygiene products are prohibited "oils" on Yom Kippur?

Are deodorants and perfumes in this category? What about medical ointments?

  • Are you excluding those prohibited because of "washing"? – Double AA Sep 8 '13 at 17:02

    Either way people should go easy on the perfumes. Assuming they're not prohibited outright, some people can't tolerate the smell very well while fasting. – A L Sep 8 '13 at 17:05
  • @double aa, are some prohibited BC of washing? – Seth J Sep 8 '13 at 17:23
