Making Your Own Poo Pourri?

Started 1365526787.253 in Beauty Banter | Last reply 1365560599.183 by babyb

I know there was a discussion about this some time ago and I never saw any responses. I was wondering if anyone is doing this; and if so, what's your formula? I especially like the one that has cinnamon oil in it but I'd like to try any fragrances if I could make my own.

Seriously, you can take ANY air freshener and spray it in the bowl and get the same results for a fraction of the cost of the Poo Pourri. Sorry, but I don't know how you can make your own.

Essential oil (eucalyptus, orange, grapefruit, lemon, etc) mixed with water.

They're are quite a few recipes online.

I tried lanikins suggestion just spraying air freshener in the bowl & it works very well. Also Golden Violin catalog has a similar product that is only $8.00 a bottle!

Actually found a product like it at Walmart for around three dollars.

The recipe someone posted was :

15 drops Lemongrass essential oil

15 drops Grapefruit essential oil

10 drops Bergamot essential oil

8 oz water

Shake and spray into water in toilet bowl BEFORE you go. Oils will disperse over water creating a vapor barrier thus preventing the offending odor.

Try essential oils and go to Garden of Wisdom. First look under New Customer for explanation of products. Their essential oils are very reasonable and so is shipping under $5. Geranium and Bergamot makes a lovely scent together. Get dried flowers, leaves, twigs, etc. and you are set. GardenofWisdom.com I just noticed you want it for the toilet. So leave out the dried ingredients and check out all the oils on this website. Spearmint would also be nice.

I use caldrea room and linen spray which is cruelty free and contains ingredients safer for the environment, septic systems and biodegradable. I spray it directly on the water. I also use one of those small portable perfume sprayers for travel (filling it with the room/linen spray). More economical.

does it matter what essential oils are used? I'm assuming I could mix up my own scent?? I already have a bunch of e/o's so this would be free for me to make.

Better than any of those drops is to put Mr. Clean with Gain in a little spray bottle then spray 2 or 3 times before and after. Or you can use a little squirt bottle. Works great!

I need poo pourri for the litter box. Lately, after the cat does her business it stinks.

I have some oils from JM, I am going to mix them and spray and see what happens-in the toilet not in the litterbox.

I found mine hanging on one of those strips in the toilet paper aisle and the price was not awful.
