Make Your Own Poo-Pourri

October 7, 2013

I love this great idea and super duper marketing campaign.  The ad is worth the watch just for the laughs!

If you are up for creating your own version.. here is a great recipe.

Here what you’ll need:

  • 10 drops Lemongrass Essential OilMake your own poo-pourri
  • 10 drops Grapefruit Essential Oil
  • 10 drops Bergamot Essential Oil
  • 8 ounces of water
  • (1) small spray bottle

Fill the spray bottle with 8 ounces of water, add 10 drops each of the Lemongrass, Grapefruit and Bergamot Essential Oils, and shake.

Here’s how to use:

BEFORE “nature calls”, shake the bottle again and then spritz the #2 Spray into the toilet bowl. Approximately 3 or 4 spritzes should do it. Then do your “business”. The oils will disperse over the water creating a vapor barrier and trapping any offensive odors!

I hope that helps you make the call of nature more pleasant for everyone one.


ps – I use DoTERRA essential oils because I truly believe they are the best quality oils on the market.  You can learn more by reading the post listed below.

Lavender leaf and EOWhat Makes DoTERRA Essential Oils Different?

Although there are good essential oils available to consumers, many products claiming to be essential oils often are not pure aromatic extracts and often contain fillers and non-aromatic compounds. Furthermore, there are no current regulatory standards for the descriptive use of the “therapeutic grade” for products labeled as essential oils. The CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade® mark represents dōTERRA’s own internal standards for sourcing and testing 100% pure aromatic botanical extracts using independent laboratory analysis. The dōTERRA brand and registered CPTG mark represent dōTERRA’s guarantee of 100% pure essential oil extracts that meet high standards for both purity and material composition and for accurate product labeling.   Keep Reading…

Using Essential Oils for Labour and Birth

Using essential oils during your labour can be a wonderful way to support what your body is doing in a gentle and holistic way.  If you are new to the idea of essential oils, please read my earlier post about why using essential oils is safe and beneficial.

During birth there is truly a lot going on, at every level : physically, emotionally, mentally and even spiritually.  The thing I love about essential oils is that they help at all these levels and really give the body, the mind and the spirit tools to help regain balance.  Keep Reading

    Could there be any skin irritation from the essential oils splashing up onto the skin or delicate private areas?

      Hi Vonda,
      Nope. The essential oils used in this recipe are quite gentle on the skin even if they are used neat. In the recipe, you’ll notice that there is actually a small amount of essential oils in the mix, so it’s really not a concern. And I’ve been using this mix ever since I created this post and I have never experienced any splashing.
