DIY Turd Tamer (Homemade Poo-Pourri)

You may have seen a new-ish product at your local boutique store, Poo-Pourri. Its a spray (with a whole line of products) that specializes in taking away the bathroom stink and leaving it smelling like roses lemons. It really works!

Well, with our new role as parents, we talk about one thing more than anything else: poop. Glamorous, no? So, what was a more realistic present for our families than a homemade Poo-Pourri. We called it Turd Tamer.

We got the 4-oz spray bottles and other supplies on Amazon. It was quite easy to put everything together:

  • 10 drops of lemongrass essential oil
  • 10 drops of grapefruit essential oil
  • 10 drops of bergamot essential oil
  • 4-oz (a little less) of water

Voila! Instant gift!
