Baking soda can be used for so many things! It’s a great deodorizer and can absorb yucky scents. Speaking of yucky scents, I have triplet boys, people! I potty trained them over the summer, and now I understand the entire “boys missing the potty seat” issue. Sigh. At any rate, I needed a nice scent for the bathroom without using chemical sprays. Because, again, I have triplet boys in the house who are into everything! Since I’ve been creating with essential oils this week, I decided to tackle the stinky bathroom problem with baking soda and peppermint!
- Mason jar
- Baking soda
- Peppermint Essential oil
- Card stock
- Hole punch
- Mixing bowl and spoon (one that is dedicated to essential oils. Essential oils are not made to be ingested, so I always use disposable items or items that are dedicated to oils so that they do not make their way into food prep.)
Mix 1/4 cup baking soda and 1/4 cup cornstarch. Add 10 drops of peppermint essential oil and combine thoroughly.
Pour the mixture into the mason jar. Set aside.
Using the flat piece from the lid, trace a circle on the card stock. Cut it out.
Make sure that the circle fits snugly into the metal rim.
Use the hole punch in the card stock. This is so the scent from the jar can escape into the room.
Place the card stock into the rim and screw onto the mason jar.
The scent from list lasted for about a week. After that, I needed to add more essential oil. Of course, if peppermint is not your thing, you can use any scent of essential oil that you have on hand.
