• Potty-Pourri Gag Gift

    This fun gag gift is actually pretty useful. Have you ever wanted to use a restroom but were afraid the smell would waft into another room, telling the world about your personal business? Use Potty-pourri to prevent embarrassing odors. This do it yourself gag gift comes complete with hilarious poem, free printable wrap around label and content ideas that actually work.

    You'll Need:

    Small Spritzer Bottle (found in the toiletries aisle of supermarket)
    15 drops Lemongrass Essential Oil
    15 drops Grapefruit Essential Oil
    10 drops Bergamot Essential Oil
    8 oz water

    You could also print the poem separately and use a 4 oz travel bottle, attach the tag with raffia ribbon.

    Add a label with this poem:
    There once was lady so sweet,
    Who desired to be completely discrete,
    She was afraid to go poo,
    whilst visiting someone she knew,
    for fear her smell was far less than a treat.

    She thought and she fret - till at last,
    she decided to use the sweet smell of lemongrass
    to disguise the smell of her @ss!

    With this handy bottle of Potty-pourri,
    now she can poo when she has Company.

    Simply shake and spray onto the water in your toilet bowl BEFORE you pinch a grumpy. The oils will disperse over the water creating a vapor barrier, thus preventing the offending odor.

      Where do you buy essential oils?
      Do craft stores have the spray bottles?
      I would like to try this, but just need to find the ingredients!

      But does your recipe really work as well as the real one?

      I know you can buy essential oils at health food stores and online but the best deals I've found are at discount stores like TJMaxx, Marshalls and Ross where you can find them in the personal care sections.

      I already have one of the oils. I'm headed to the health food store to buy the other two. I'm thinking this would be perfect at work.
