Bathroom air freshener after you go

Are you looking for a bathroom air freshener after you go because the smell just... won’t go? I've definitely been there and done that. So in today's post, I want to help you learn how to neutralize your bathroom smells and share with you an effective bathroom deodorizer and a shockingly easy way to make deodorizers that work.

How can I neutralize my bathroom smells?

So step one to neutralizing your bathroom smells, Is to make sure that your bathroom is thoroughly cleaned. Especially areas where urine can hide. Such as on the side of the toilet under the seat and on the wall. 

Step two, you want to use natural essential oils. Something like tea tree oil which is a natural odor fighter. I personally love to mix tea tree oil in any of my restroom spray recipes and cleaning recipes. 

Step three, neutralize your bathroom smells. This is probably the most important and that is to clean as you go. what I mean by that is, daily wiping down your toilet, counter tops, and shower.

What is the most effective bathroom deodorizer?

One of my favorite effective bathroom deodorizers is going to shock you, and it's super simple to make. All you need is some baking soda, a jar, and essential oils of your choice. I personally tend to lean towards scents like lavender or something like ylang ylang essential oils.  This is the simplest natural bathroom deodorizer and it has such an amazing light scent but it soaks up the odor from the air really well.

I've made so many bathroom air freshener poop sprays it's almost ridiculous LOL. But honestly, they're fun, easy, and quick. Depending on what I want them to smell like will determine how I adjust the recipe. But the overall base of the recipe is the same. so all you need is a 

  1. Glass spray bottle
  2. A little witch hazel, alcohol, or vinegar
  3. Water 
  4. And essential oils of your choice
  5. With a few drops of tea tree oil (optional)

I sometimes prefer using witch hazel over vinegar because it smells better and witch hazel is also a natural odor eliminator which I personally love.  but you can use white vinegar or alcohol if you so choose or you can just leave them both out and use just the water and the essential oils.


I went from being single and living alone to married and living with another human. So when I tell you I get your restroom smells and cleanliness can sometimes be a challenge, trust I get it. But hopefully these tips will help it be less of a challenge.

Natural fragrance for bathroom

Depending on the size of your restroom you can also add a diffuser in there, my restroom is a little too small for that and the smell is way too overpowering so I have chosen not to do this step however if you have a more open floor plan you 100% can try it. 

Another way to do this is to just drop a couple of drops of essential oils directly on your counter or in your toilet bowl. My only concern is depending on what type of counter tops you have you can mess them up because the oil is very potent and will eat through certain paint and other kinds of materials.

Best bathroom odor eliminator

So out of all of the examples I have given you in this post, the best bathroom odor eliminator for my home is definitely the baking soda in the jar with a few drops of essential oils. Because once I make it I don’t have to do anything else except had a few extra drops throughout the month. You can also get this thing called moisture eliminators and put them around your home. They soak out the odor in the air. 

I bought mine from Amazon and the Dollar Tree. They both work the same but the Amazon ones are usually bigger.

About the author

I started my natural journey a few years ago after too many loved ones started getting sick from several different health problems. It broke my heart to lose so many people. I decided to change my lifestyle originally out of fear. But the more I started discovering new products and trying Natural DIY recipes I started having so much fun. I learned how to shop with a tiny budget, and I realized I didn't have to miss out on anything, I just had to learn how to go natural on a budget.
