Add alcohol and EOs to the spray bottle. Shake well to disperse the EOs in the alcohol. Add in the water, then add in a few drops of castille soap. Done!
To use (you might want to write this on the bottle): Lift lid. Shake bottle well. Spray surface of water 5-6 times. Put lid down and do your business.
IMPORTANT: Please flush!
As with this other Happy Citrus No Poop-Pourri recipe, this is a bathroom spray that you spray IN the toilet, on the surface of the water, BEFORE doing your business.
This is how it works: The essential oils and soap create a film over the top of the water. When the stool then propels with force into the bowl, it briefly penetrates the surface of the water before sinking to the bottom. The particles of oil and soap quickly snap back together on the surface of the water, preventing pooey bacteria from reacting with oxygen and creating a stench.
Does it really work?
It sure does!
And it's way cheaper to make that the actual product called Poo-Pourri.
You could use vodka instead of the rubbing alcohol, if you like, and feel free to experiment with other EOs. You could use halve the recipe if you only have a small bottle, and doubling the recipe is also doable. The ratio of alcohol to water is 1:1.
A glass spray bottle is preferable to use, as EOs will break down plastic over time, but use what you have :)
Enjoy those happy smelling days ahead :)
