How to make DIY Poo Pourri Spray for $3 bottle {50% cheaper than VIPoo Spray!}

DIY Poo Pourri Spray

Who wants to know how to make Poo Pourri Spray for $3 bottle?

The new rave I have seen so many people buying is Poo Pourri Spray! My job to help you save money is to come up with comparable alternatives. I cannot bring myself to spend $6-$12 on a 2 oz bottle of VIPoo spray! So I decided to use my Essential Oils and make my own 4 oz bottle DIY Recipes that sits in our bathroom which is what is in the picture above. When you see how many drops in 5ml essential oil, you will see how much less expensive it is to make your own Poo Pouri Spray in a 2oz bottle! It only takes 3 ingredients for my poo pourri spray. Most people seem to want a 2 oz bottle so my price comparison is based on a purse size 2 oz bottle.

The Best Essential Oils to Use

What are the best essential oils to use? With essential oils, you get what you pay for. Currently, there are no standards for essential oils. If you are just picking up different essential oils at the grocery store or the health food store, there is no way to know how pure or potent that oil is, if it is a real essential oil or just fragranced oil. In order to reap the benefits of natural remedies (ex. for seasonal allergies, sore muscles, immune system), I only use Young Living Oils because of their Seed to Seal standard. When applying oils to your skin, they are almost immediately absorbed into your system and I will not apply oils that I do not know how they are growing, harvesting and testing their oils. Just because you see a label that says pure, if there isnt there is a standard for them, then there is no telling what is in them and where they came from. I do not want to be putting unknown toxins/chemicals/fragrances/dyes onto my skin and into my system. You can purchase any of the Young Living Oils from my Love Oily Life website here. Free Shipping and 24% discount if you spend over 100 PV (this will be calculated in your cart before checkout).

My favorite and best scent to use for DIY Poo Pourri or Air Freshener Fragrance Oil spray is Young Living Purification Blend. This specific essential oil blend contains 6 oils= Citronella, Lavandin, Lemongrass, Myrtle, Rosemary, and Tea Tree. This sweet and spicy mix, with its citrus notes and herbaceous complements, is the best aroma to make an air freshener or poo purri spray bottle. It can eliminate strong smells from cooking and smoking. It is also a great aroma to greet you when you walk in your front door. Purification brings about feelings of peace and contentment, whether you and your loved ones are crowded around the kitchen table, sprawled out in the family room for game night, or dancing through the house as you tackle cleaning projects

How many drops in 5ml essential oil?

Average amount of drops of oil is 5ml bottle is approx 85 drops

5 ml of essential oil Purification Blend $21.71 bottle= $.26 per drop

Ingredients for DIY Poo Pourri:

2 oz Glass Spray Small Bottles = $0.95 bottle
7 drops Purification oil = $1.82
2 tsp Unscented Witch Hazel (you can also use Vodka or Alcohol) = $.28
Fill rest with filtered water (or distilled water but will have additional cost)= $0
Final Cost per 2 oz bottle = $3.05

***How much drop of essential oil is too little or too much? A general guideline is that you can add more drops of pure essential oils to have a stronger scent or use less drops to have a weaker scent. Small amounts of Purification pure oil has a strong scent

You can also add any other essential oil blends such as Lemon, Peppermint or Orange Oil depending on your preferences!

Compare this too the ViPoo Spray cost bottle from $6-$12 per bottle!! Thats more than 50% savings!!! Plus your glass bottles are reusable. Once you start buying essential oils, you can also reuse the 5-15ml bottles to fit in your purse, just add a sprayer. Reusing old bottles lessens the cost by 30% more!!
