Keep your bathroom smelling fresh and clean with this essential oil toilet paper trick. This trick is so simple and it keeps working for days!
This is such a clever way to get everyone who uses your washroom to help you out with keeping it fresh and clean. It’s even more effective than one of those “Be a sweetie, wipe the seat-y” signs. 🙂 I love to use essential oils to freshen my home whenever I can. I love the nice natural scents that you get with essential oils, and I also find them to be much more potent and effective than a lot of the fake home scent products, which can be really watered-down.
Today, the lowly toilet paper roll is the star of the show. 🙂 If you want a bathroom that always smells fresh, here’s what you need to do!
How to Use the Essential Oil Toilet Paper Roll Trick in Your Home
Each time that you go to change the toilet paper roll, grab your favourite bottle of essential oil and carefully drip a few drops inside the roll.
You only need a bit! Three to five drops should do it.
Replace the roll on the holder as usual and you’re all set! Each time the toilet paper is used, the spinning of the roll will help re-release that fresh scent into the air!
The Essential Oils I Use
I should mention that the oils that you see in the pictures are the oils that I usually use at home and they’re from PURE, where I get most of my essential oils. You need to order directly from them, so let me know if you’re interested and I can get you some more info. Just leave me a comment or send me an email. ???? The PURE oils go through 9 different purity tests and are super high quality. They’re also about 1/2 the price of a lot of oils that you can get from the other big essential oil companies so that’s why I almost always buy from there. ????
I linked to some oils from other manufacturers in this post for your convenience so you can see what the bottles look like or buy them instantly through Amazon. This brand that I’ve linked to is the brand that I usually go with if I’m out of something and need to pick it up from a local store and don’t have time to wait to get my PURE order for that month. I find that if I don’t provide enough info about which essential oils I choose and why in these posts, that someone always asks to have that part of things explained a little better. So if you want to know more about this (or anything else I write about ever, just drop me a line!)
This essential oil toilet paper roll trick is such a great simple solution to a problem that we often over-complicate with all kinds of air scenting and purifying gizmos and gadgets. Truthfully, I do enjoy pretty much any home scent products, even if the scent is a little less strong. I go for the essential oils though in the areas that it really counts like the bathroom!
Do you have a sneaky essential oil home scent trick? I’d love to try to it!
