Homemade Poo Pourri Spray with Essential Oils

Poo pourri is a must have for any and every bathroom. At least, I think so. But maybe that’s because I share a bathroom with three boys.

Never the less, I always make sure we are fully stocked with poo pourri. If you’re not familiar with poo pourri, it’s basically a bathroom deodorizer. It prevents and eliminates stinky bathroom odors that occur when one goes number two. You can check out the original product here.


I used to buy the original formula but recently decided to try and make my own diy version.

I wanted to make my own homemade poo-pourri for two reasons.

  1. I wanted to know exactly what was in it. The creators of the original Poo-Pourri claim their product is free of parabens, ethanol and many other harsh chemicals, but they don’t actually list the ingredients on their products. So you don’t really know for sure what you’re spraying or breathing in.
  2. I wanted to save money. The original Poo-pourri can cost you around $4 an ounce (and we go through a lot in my house). This diy version costs around $1 an ounce (if I did my math correctly). The cost will vary depending on which essential oils you choose to use.

How to use Homemade poo pourri

The secret to using poo pourri is to spray it before you go, not after. Just spray 2-4 times in toilet before you go. The poo pourri creates a barrier which traps the odors in the toilet where they belong! And your bathroom stays fresh and clean.


I’m kinda addicted to making my own copycat diy products. Some of my creations are a success and some are total fails. This one my friends, is a winner. I compared it to the original formula and it works just the same.

I like to add the above mixture to these super tiny spray bottles to create little on the go poo-pourri bottles. They’re so small you can just throw them in your purse.
