What you will need:
  • 4-ounce spray bottle
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable glycerin
  • 45-50 drops Christmas Tree Holiday Blend*
  • 3.5 ounces distilled water
  • 40 drops Optiphen Plus**
What you will do:
  1. Add vegetable glycerin, Optiphen Plus, and Christmas Tree to the spray bottle.
  2. Stir or swirl to combine.
  3. Add water to fill and shake prior to each use.
  4. Spray into toilet water prior to using the restroom. This creates a barrier on the water, as well as releases a pleasant scent into the room.

*Can substitute any Holiday Blend.

** Due to the water content, this product should be stored in the fridge and used within a week. Otherwise, add a preservative, such as Optiphen Plus.

  1. Love this idea so much. I’ve been looking for a natural substitute to the Poo-Pourri that we currently use. Great way to use the Holiday blend.

  2. Cant wait to try this when im back home! I really love my wc and i usually put lavender drops onto my floor every night shower since it relaxes me before going to bed. great help!

  3. I definitely have to make this! I usually gift Poo-Pouri to kids of my friends who are going off to college, but it sure gets expensive! This a great alternative, and fully customizable!

    1. Gwen, you can find vegetable glycerin at many retailers, including Walgreens and Walmart. It is also very easy to buy online. Optiphen Plus can be a little more difficult to find at a store, though many Walmarts carry it; it may just be easiest to get this online as well 🙂

    1. Online retailers, like Amazon, for instance, are the easiest ways to get Optiphen Plus. You may also find luck at Walmart because many of their stores sell preservatives.

  4. Thank you for putting the drop # on the Optiphen plus – my brain can’t do math this season 😉 Just ran out of Tood-a-loo spray too – perfect timing.

  5. I don’t think it works as good as a name brand product I have tried but it does help! Thank you so much for all the recipes you offer.

  6. Yes! Thank you for the recipe. I always see the little bottles of Poo-pouri in friends’ bathrooms, now I can make my own!

  7. we host parties for both sides of our families, and i cant wait to try this in our bathrooms! thank you for this wonderful recipe!

  8. I’m adding this to my list of DIYs to make! I hate the smell of chemical bathroom de-odorizers, so this is a great alternative.

  9. Thanks for this recipe. I’ve been using expired essential oils down the toilet bowl and in the drain. I’ll use this recipe as soon I’ve phased out the expired oils!

  10. Thanks for this recipe. I’ve been using expired essential oils down the toilet bowl and in the drain. I’ll use this recipe as soon I’ve phased out the expired oils!

  11. I guess I need to get some optiphen plus because I’d like to give this a try but the thought of having this stored in the fridge AND used up within a week is grossing me out LOL

  12. Thank you for this recipe. I have a store bought bathroom spray but it smells very fake. I am excited to try one with EO.
