In other words, we’re all gonna die and we all have to go to the bathroom. And we’ll do one of those things way more than the other.
I can’t help you with the death part, but I can definitely help you with the unfortunate results of bowel movements.

Flashback to the 70’s…
I come from a family of seven and when I was growing up we only had one bathroom. If someone left a whopper-stink in there it led to some major conflict.
There was always a large box of matches on the back of the toilet and after you went #2 you were supposed to light the match, wave it around the toilet for a bit and then drop it in before you burned your finger off.
Nowadays, when somebody stinks up the lavatory most people would reach for a commercial room deodorizer.
Except don’t because those are toxic.
You can certainly use my non-toxic All Natural Room Freshener, but why not stop the stench at the source?
Now you can with Poo-Poo Spray.
Just spray it in the toilet before you go #2 and it creates an oil barrier on top of the water. Once the BM passes through the surface of the water, the oil barrier closes and traps all the nasty odors below. You never smell the poop at all.
Think of of like a force field and your poop is the Death Star. Well, you get the idea…
Poo-Poo Spray–money in the bank, not in the toilet
I’m not sure why the big name brand Poo-Pourri costs so much money when the ingredients are so cheap. Plus, I can pretty much guarantee they’re using low-grade essential oils so why the high price tag?
When I checked the name-brand’s website I was shocked that a 4 oz. bottle of their extra-fancy poop spray was $15.00.
That’s $480 a gallon, people! And if you buy their smaller 2 oz. size the price goes up to a whopping $640 a gallon. Say What??!!
It’s like flushing money down the toilet. Literally. LOL!
Even using the highest quality essential oils on the market, my 4 oz. poo-poo spray will only cost you about a buck fifty. Whew, financial crisis averted. Now we can all breathe again…literally.
We used to make this spray with just essential oils and water and it worked fine. But since we’re always tweaking things around here, we have found a few ways to improve the recipe.
Here’s what’s in Poo-Poo Spray and why:
Vegetable Glycerin—helps the water and oil emulsify and increases the “oil” barrier on the water’s surface. I use this brand of Vegetable Glycerin.
Rubbing Alcohol—also helps the water and oil emulsify.
Glass Spray Bottle—I highly recommend using glass containers for any DIY products that contain essential oils because they can etch plastic over time. It’s a good investment since these glass spray bottles with last forever.
Blue Food Coloring—visual aid so you can see the oil barrier. Not necessary but it helps people feel better when they see that they have “full coverage”.
Essential Oils—you can use any combo you like but if you want to mimic the name brand’s original formula use bergamot, grapefruit and lemongrass. Not everyone loves the smell of lemongrass so I’ve come up with some other combinations that work just as well and smell fabulous!
Note: This is normally where I’d tell you to only use the highest quality essential oils you can buy. But let’s get real folks, we’re talking about poop spray here. Use whatever inferior essential oils you want.
In fact, this was how we used up all the cheap essential oils we had bought over the years before we discovered our favorite brand. Just sayin’…
