Oxters is a great Doric word and I've noticed that this slang phrase is used throughout Scotland. The Scottish meaning for Oxter is your armpit.
You might want to say something like, "Mind and put on anti-perspirant this summer folk and keep your armpits smelling nice."
This would translate into Doric as, "Mind an putten on anti-perspirant this simmer fowk an keep yer oxters smelling nice."
