Hi there, I'm new to this group. I have IBS c symptoms. Had anyone tried poopari spray or similar options? It is so embarrassing to have your family or spouse walk into the restroom after having an IBS flare. Any suggestions?
When I first saw this product advertised I was fascinated. However as I was unsure about how effective it would be I researched online and found a 'recipe' for a home made version! Here it is:
1x5 floz spray bottle, ideally brown glass
4 floz distilled water
25 drops of lemon essential oil
10 drops of bergamot essential oil
15 drops of orange essential oil
1 tsp glycerine
Combine ingredients and put in spray bottle. Add few sprays to water in bowl of toilet before you use it (time permitting!😬). Useful for anyone using the bathroom.
I don't like artificial scents and use essential oils anyway so it was easy for me to make this. Can't guarentee it will mask all odours but it smells nice and is much better than artificial fragrances in air fresheners!
Can order Poo Pourri from Amazon, and they sell it at the check out at Chapters/Indigo (Canada's Barnes & Noble type of thing).
Am going to make the homemade stuff MandaStott offered the recipe for! The vanilla-lavender Poo Pourri bugs my sinuses. But it does work!
