DIY Poo Poo Spray Poo Pourri Recipes Printable Labels

It’s the film of oil covering the surface of the water that prevents odors from escaping the bowl. 
  • Use distilled water (or bottled water) as the base of your Poo Pourri recipe for best results. Of course, tap water works too, but it contains other minerals that could ever-so-slightly affect your recipe. Fortunately, distilled water is budget-friendly… a gallon jug is just 99 cents at most grocery stores.
  • Use rubbing alcohol (or witch hazel or vodka) as a stabilizer. It turns the liquid into a white, milky substance — much like the original Poo Pourri. It also helps the water and oils mix better, although you still need to shake before each use.
  • For the best results, use 100% natural Essential Oils, rather than synthetic blends that are made in a lab.
  • The exact number of drops and which Essential Oils you use is completely up to you. Each variable you change will change the scent and its strength to some degree. Experiment and find the combination you like best. Below I share my favorites, plus some popular scent combinations from the original Poo Pourri sprays.
  • If you want to be able to see the oil barrier of protection in the toilet bowl itself, you can add a few drops of blue food coloring to your DIY Poo Pourri recipe.
  • Ideally, you should store your homemade Poo Pourri spray in a small glass spray bottles — because Essential Oils break down and become less effective when exposed to light. However, I’ll be honest, I’m using small plastic spray bottles (like the original Poo Pourri comes in). I like the ones with a trigger sprayer best because they hang nicely on the side of the toilet paper holder that I have on the back each toilet in our home.
Recipe 1

  1. Find a clean 2 oz (or 4 oz) spray bottle.
  2. Combine 10 (or 20) drops of Essential Oils and 1 (or 2) tablespoons of Rubbing Alcohol in a small spray bottle first.
  3. Shake to mix thoroughly.
  4. Next, add water to the spray bottle, enough to almost reach the rim.

Recipe 2

Combine in a 2oz Glass Spray Bottle,
1.75 oz Distilled Water,
15 drops Lemon EO, 
5 drops of Bergamot, 
10 drops Orange EO, 
1/2 teaspoon of Vegetable Glycerin.

Note** EO stands for Essential Oils



You can use any mixture of EO's just note how many drops of each in the above recipes as a general rule of thumb.
