DIY Poo Pourri Recipe Directions
Creating this Poo Pourri Recipe is a matter of mixing the proper amounts into a measuring cup and then pouring it into a spray bottle. Once you create this Poo Pourri Recipe, you can continue to use your Poo Spray as much as needed until you run out and have to make another batch. Because you are mixing essential oils, rubbing alcohol, vegetable glycerin and water, there will be a separation of ingredients at the top of the water, so its very important to SHAKE BEFORE YOU USE. Shaking the ingredients will blend the essential oils with all the other ingredients to create a perfect blend of Poo Spray right before use.
Step 1 – Measure 2 Teaspoons of Vegetable Glycerin
First things first, measure out your 2 teaspoons of Vegetable Glycerin and pour into your spray bottle.
Step 2- Measure 2 Teaspoons of Rubbing Alcohol
Using the same teaspoon, measure out 2 teaspoons of rubbing alcohol, measuring in the same cup will pull the remainder of vegetable glycerin out. After you measure out the rubbing alcohol, pour it into your spray bottle.
Step 3 – Slowly add 20-30 Drops of Lemongrass Essential Oil
The lemongrass has a very strong smell, so depending on how potent you would like your poop spray will depend on how many drops you put in. We recommend anywhere from 20-30, however, you can add up to 50 if you want your poop spray to be extremely potent.
Step 4 – Slowly add 10-20 Drops of Orange Essential Oil
Again, depending on how potent you want your poop spray, will depend on how many drops you put in. Add a little or add a lot – Have fun with it!
Step 5 – Fill the remainder of spray bottle with distilled water
After all your ingredients are in, fill the remainder of your spray bottle with distilled water (Regular water will work fine, we just recommend distilled water). Notice the Separation of Essential Oils and water? You will need to shake the ingredients for everything to blend before each use.
VERY IMPORTANT: Shake before every use
Step 6 is Optional: Squeeze in a fresh lemon or orange to give an extra zest kick!
If you would like, you can add additional scent by adding fresh lemon, lime or orange. The options with this Poo Pourri Recipe are virtually endless. You can use whatever Essential Oils you want and combine any amount of vegetable glycerin and rubbing alcohol to create the perfect blend of Personal Poo Pourri you desire!
