      “another hint–eat vegetarian. :-)”

      You mean, like beans? Sort of defeats the purpose with some of us.

      I love chicken, beef, and pork, yummm!

      I do eat only vegetarian, have for the last 24 years, and I stink like the best of them. The only time my “stuff” has ever smelled even slightly pleasant is when I’ve eaten almost nothing but strawberries. I guess maybe people should eat vegan to smell nice, but I’d probably find my way around that one, too.

  3. Haha! I’m SO glad I came across this. My fiance claims his number 2 is toxic! Looks like I’ll be keeping a bottle of some EOs near the toilet so he can use them… ;)

  4. This is so great! I started doing this with lemongrass oil, and wow, it really does make a difference!

    I have yet to convince my husband to try, considering he tells me his are “toxic.” lol

    I’m going to go put drops in all my toilets…just in case! LOL

    how far in advance can you put the drops in? i have people in my house who would definitely forget so i was thinking i could add them myself, but i don’t want to waste it if it’s hours without no one going in!

    I’ve been trying this out lately and it works GREAT! Here are a few more tips

    * you can put the drops in moments before you go or after you’re already begun to go
    * for best results add the drops to the water and not the side (or front) of the bowl. They’ll eventually drip down into the water, but it’s faster if you just add them to the water.
    * husbands might need a few extra drops
    * you can use any scent! (I bought fragrance oils in the following scents – 7-up pound cake, strawberry shake and grapefruit. All of these scents worked well)
    * if you’re a real cheapie like me buy a larger bottle of EO and refill old bottles with new oil
    * these make a great stocking stuffer!

    I don’t really give a crap about the smell…its other HEARING me is what’s the problem. I don’t even like them to hear the TP rolling, tearing and wiping. I have issues.

    You can buy drops at Wal-Mart for this and they work perfectly. Plus it only costs $2 or $3 dollars, way cheaper than essential oils.

    • Heather

      what are the drops called at Walmart? And is it buy bathroom products/sprays/deodorizers? Thanks in advance!

    I have been doing this for a couple of years and think it’s the greatest trick on earth, but cannot get my family to use the oils. I don’t like the eucalyptus or lemon eucalyptus smells; I prefer orange or lemon. Teenage son says he doesn’t like food smells. Warning about peppermint oil: I have experienced a burning sensation in a place in bring want to have a burning sensation…maybe a little splash back? It’s the best scent because it just smells like you brushed your teeth, but that occasional burning sensation is NOT worth it. I will look for lemongrass and wintergreen. Anyone know if wintergreen has that burning sensation?

    So now our bathroom can smell like flowers and sunshine and hearts and …..robots? Sound terrific! I’m eager to try this trick as lighting a match is an okay neutralizer but doesn’t quite cut it. :)

    Seems like I can detect other fragrances than oils in the commercial products…do they contain bleach or other cleansing/sterilizing agents?
