Essentials Video: Saro Bathroom Odor Eliminator

Alright, let’s get down to business. We all have to do our… well… business in the bathroom. And it can often leave a funk that lingers for longer than anyone would like. Essential oils to the rescue! Passive diffusion, or an actual diffuser, help keep the bathroom smelling fresh on a continual basis. But every once in a while, or every day if things are running smoothly, we need extra odor protection. That’s where the Saro Bathroom Odor Eliminator comes in.  The combination of vegetable glycerin, distilled water, Saro essential oil, and a preservative create the perfect barrier. Just shake and spray in the toilet bowl before you do your business. It will help keep the odor trapped as well as release a pleasant smell in the air.

  1. Great idea! I can’t wait to make this. I don’t have any of these oils so I’ll have to make my own blend.

  2. I’m so going to have to try this. My husband’s home office is right by our bathroom and there are times when he’s on the phone and we can’t flush until he’s off of it. This will be a lifesaver for those days. Telecommuting has it’s plus side, but this one can be a drawback…

  3. This is timely. I keep a bottle of bathroom spray in one of our bathrooms, and was just about to make another for the other bathroom. Now I don’t have to wonder what scent it will be.

  4. I never thought of spraying the toilet before, good idea! I’m going to have to try this. I don’t have Saro but I’ll put it on my list and in the meantime I’ll have to try it with some oils I do have. Thank you for recipe!

  5. I’m definitely going to give this a try! Thank you for all the recipes, eventually I will be able to replace all of my household products with more natural version, I love it!

  6. I must try this, my house can’t smell good enough for me with all the blends I can make. TOO many options. lol

    1. Yes, this is very similar! You could even try this recipe with different essential oils based on your sister’s preferences.

  7. Thank you, Can someone please explain why glycerine was used instead of polysorbate 20 or soluble? I’m not being snarky, I really would like to know. I’m guessing that glycerine may reduce the risk of a dermal reaction, but why was an emulsifier not used also? – Again, sorry for any possible embarrassment. I’m asking from a sincere place. Thank you.

    1. This spray isn’t meant to be sprayed on the skin which is why it doesn’t have an emulsifier. The glycerin is meant to help create a barrier on top of the water and trap odors beneath.

  8. This is an interesting idea. I’ve never heard of a product you spray into the toilet before use. I’ll have to give this a try.

  9. Which is a more effective preservative, Optiphen plus or Everclear? I realize this one gets flushed so maybe not an issue, but for other air freshening sprays.

  10. Love the concept! I think I’m going to make this but switch out some oils for kidsafe ones. I have 3 boys 4 and under and we definitely have stinky bathrooms at times, the diaper pail could use a scrub too!

  11. Oh my goodness!!! I totally need this!! I live in a house filled with boys!!!! This would be a nose saver… I meant life saver!!!

  12. Is there a cheaper alternative to the Optiphen Plus? How long would this last if the preservative is not used?

    1. It really just depends. We recommend researching other preservatives and making a choice that works for you and your budget. Unfortunately, though, we can only recommend what we have tried, and cannot guarantee anything that’s not in our recipe. Without a preservative, I’d say this would be okay for a couple weeks. But honestly, since this isn’t a topical product, and just gets flushed… I wouldn’t stress about the preservative for self-use.
