I know, I know. Your poo don’t stink. But if you are paranoid to do your business in a public restroom or your boyfriend’s bathroom, this one’s for you.
I seriously doubt that selling over 4 million bottles of Poo Pourri is only because of their marketing. It is pretty funny though…
I have bought it myself because it works. Then I ran out and I wondered, “Can’t I make this myself?” I have tackled bug spray. Surely this is not too difficult. Turns out it isn’t. All you need are 3 ingredients.
DIY Poo Pourri
10 drops of Pure Essential Oils
1 Tablespoon of Pure Castile Soap
Distilled or RO Water to fill bottle
Combine all ingredients in a 2 oz spray bottle and shake to mix thoroughly.
I just saved you about $6 a bottle. Your choice of essential oils is up to you. I mix Lemon + Lavender in mine. If you need a hook up on oils, I’ve got you covered.
For castile soap, I use Dr. Bronner’s Unscented Pure Castile Soap which you can then use to make your own foaming hand soap. Castile soap acts as an emulsifier because if you remember Intro to Chemistry, oil and water don’t mix.
PSA: Never ingest essential oils unless you are directed by a professional who studies the consumption of oils. They can seriously damage your esophagus, intestines, and stomach.
