Are we seriously talking about a DIY toilet spray right now?! Yes, because let’s face it, we all need one. Poo-Pourri is popular with its clever marketing that makes it fun to give as a gift. One showed up at a holiday yankee swap party I was attending. Everyone laughed, but we all thought it was a cute and necessary idea.
Now, the thing is you can easily drop $20 on Poo-Pourri and only end up with two 4 ounce bottles. Whereas the ingredients to make your own DIY toilet spray are under $20 and you can make more than two. I haven’t done the math, but let’s just saw you can definitely make A LOT of bathroom sprays for this price. Plus it’s so easy!

HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN ESSENTIAL OILS DIY TOILET SPRAY
As you may know, we love essential oils over here. Therefore, when I found out I could make this DIY toilet spray using essential oils, then I was all in. I love being able to customize my own bathroom spray to whatever scent I feel like. I can even change them out seasonally, whether I’m looking for a cozy fall scent or a jolly Christmas aroma. The possibilities are endless and you can have fun experimenting with the different scents.
Aside from the essential oils, you only need three other ingredients. First, there is rubbing alcohol or witch hazel. You can use either and they both get the job done. They are to make sure the oils and water blend together well. Otherwise, they will remain separated no matter how much you shake the bottle and it just won’t do its job properly. Next, you need glycerine. This is what provides the film on the toilet water to hold the smell in. Last, you top it all off with distilled water, which you can find a gallon for less than $1 at most grocery stores.
The exact amount you need of each ingredient can be found in the recipe card at the bottom of this post. Mix together, shake, and spray. It’s that easy folks!
What essential oil blends should I use for the DIY toilet spray?
Our absolute favorite essential oil blend is ‘Cozy Candle’. Inspired by Anthropologie’s volcano candle, we mixed up this blend to mimic that scent as closely as possible. We enjoy diffusing it in our office, so figured why not add it to the toilet spray. It’s a win-win!
If you are new to essential oils, then I understand your hesitation with buying a bunch of different individual oils to use in the toilet spray. Over here, we enjoy using Edens Garden essential oils. So I recommend either purchasing their starter kit, which comes with all the basics you will need, or buying just three individual oils. You can make a really great smelling blend with just three oils and that might be a good place to start.
Here are a couple of different blends that can be made up with the starter kit.
What if I don’t want to buy an essential oil starter kit?
If you want to start out with purchasing only three individual essential oils, then here is a blend that smells really great. Between this one and the blends above, you should be off to a good start with your experimenting.
