"Trap The Stink" Bathroom Spray

"Trap the Stink" Bathroom Spray

There really isn't a whole lot to talk about on this subject other than this spray is something that will just make your life a little better. 

No one likes to walk into a stinky bathroom or be the one to cause it especially if you are outside your home, but when nature calls you can be prepared to trap that stink. 

I have made sprays for each bathroom and made a smaller one to keep in my purse for those on the go moments.

Trap the Stink bathroom spray does exactly what it says. Spritz on the top of the water in the toilet BEFORE you go and the essential oils will make a thin layer on the top of the water and trap in the smell leaving the bathroom smelling better than before. 

Here are the items you will need. Just add the oils into the spray bottle and top off with Witch Hazel.

15 drops of Bergamot Essential Oil
15 drops of Grapefruit Essential Oil
15 drops of Lemongrass Essential Oil
Top off with Witch Hazel 

That's it! So simple and so easy. Enjoy!

I have been using Spark Naturals Essential Oils for years.

I love Chinese food and always have. I don't eat it very often but I do love to make it. Chinese food can be expensive so learning how to make it at home can save you a lot of money.

Spring Cleaning Naturally - Make your own products

Spring Clean Naturally

When was the last time you looked at the back of your cleaning supplies labels? You will be surprised  at what you find.

I honestly hadn't thought about it much but my kids school focuses on the environment and teaches them to use cleaner materials in our home. They came home asking why we don't use our oils for our cleaning supplies? Uhhhhhh, what do you say to that?  They are right. So we are making our own and moving forward.

Here are a few ideas for you to use for cleaning supplies in your home for your Spring cleaning. It is simple and easy. When using a sprayer you will want to use a class sprayer or a PET plastic spray bottle
