Deodorizing Toilet Spray

“All living things eat, so everyone poops!” – Everyone Poops by Taro Gomi

Now that we are clear on that subject, let’s talk about how to make it a pleasant experience! This Deodorizing Toilet Spray is meant to be used before the elimination process begins. When you spray it in the toilet, the ingredients create a film on top of the water. This creates a barrier and fresh scent on top of the water so as you do your business it traps the smell beneath the surface. The food coloring is optional but is a nice reassurance that it works.

Some great essential oil blend recipes for a toilet spray include the following:

Sweet Citrus:
5 drops lemongrass
5 drops bergamot
5 drops grapefruit
Rosemary Mint:
4 drops lavender
4 drops peppermint
4 drops rosemary
2 drops melaleuca
Ocean Breeze:
5 drops cedarwood
4 drops lemon
2 drops rosemary

  3. To use, shake the bottle, and then spray a few times in the toilet before you do your business.

    • If the recipe suggests a plastic container (or doesn’t specify a glass container) then the essential oils should be diluted enough to not cause any problems when using a plastic container.

  1. This blog is GREAT for some new ideas for me. I happened on while selecting items to order from AromaTools. I appreciate all of the research, trial and error you and your staff must do to find appropriate and useful products for us customers. I also appreciate the monthly sales, not only to save money, but to see products we otherwise may have missed.

    Thanks again. Sherrie B. Thomas

  2. Hi! I just found your blog through your website and am so glad I did! I am just wondering how much does this recipe make? Would I need a 1 oz. spray bottle or the 2 oz. one?
