Everybody poops. That doesn’t mean you have to put up with the STANK that comes with it. Over the past 4 years I have made and perfected my own “poo-pourri” spray.
I have a couple of version for you to try. One made with essential oils and the other with fragrance oils that you would make lotions and soaps with.
Don’t put up with the poo smell!
Homemade “poo-pourri” spray
Hubby and I went to Washington DC to see one of his closets friends tie the knot. Wouldn’t you know that once again we stayed at a fancy hotel with no bathroom fan. WHY??? Hence the need for the poo spray. After staying at many hotels and flying overseas the need for this spray has made it a mandatory fixture in our house hold. Nothing worse than trying to sleep feet away from a stinky bathroom!
After chatting with our friends new wife, she mentioned that her mother gifts them poo-pourri for Christmas every year. I mentioned to her that I make my own poo spray and then realized I have never posted it to my blog so here it is.

Tools and ingredients you will need for both versions:
PIN FOR LATER
Recipe for a 2 oz bottle
1 tablespoon of rubbing alcohol (or witch hazel / vodka)
5 drops castile soap
5 drops lavender essential oil
7 drops peppermint essential oil
10 drops lemon essential oil
Fill with distilled water
20 drops of cosmetic grade fragrance oil (fruit loops is my favorite)
2 tsp castile soap
3 tbsp rubbing alcohol
15 drops lavender
20 drops peppermint
25 drops lemon
fill remainder with distilled water
2 dropper’s full of fragrance oil.
Once all ingredients or combined shake well and let sit overnight. The oil and soap need time to meld together for the fragrance to really come out. After you have let it combine shake well before each use and spray directly onto toilet water. 4-6 sprays work well.
*USE ONLY METAL OR GLASS MIXING UTENSILS AND STORAGE CONTAINERS, AS PLASTIC WILL MELT*
This mixture is perfectly safe for septic tanks. By the time you have flushed it is very diluted and should not harm anyone or anything.
I really enjoy having a STRONG smelling spray so if you find that it is too overpowering reduce the number of oil drops to your liking.
I made 10 different super cute labels for you to print and tape onto the bottles. I gifted these for Christmas a few years ago and everyone loved it and asked for more. It travels well and is a huge help when you have to go in a public restroom or at work. poo 2 oz or poo 16 oz
Let me know if you tried it and what you think. I’m sure you will find that it is a nose saver. Looking for some DIY essential oil cleaners? I have the best granite and grease cleaner for you.
