I have been feeling a little under the weather this past week and I am at the point where I have run out to tissues, so I have resorted to using toilet paper. No, I am not proud of this and it is so not glamorous…but it made me realize a simple DIY trick that I have not shared with you. Blowing your nose with toilet paper sucks…it is thin, and not so soft, and it makes your nose look like you have been using sand paper on it. However, when your toilet paper smells like you are running through a lavender field, it sucks less and it makes you forget how terrible it is. I am going to share my secret with you on how to keep you bathroom smelling super fresh without investing in artificial air fresheners. Now you can easily have an earth friendly bathroom air freshener, and if you do have to blow your nose with toilet paper, at least it will smell nice.
- 1 Roll of Toilet Paper
- 1 Bottle of Your Favorite Essential Oil (I prefer Lavender)
When you are getting ready to put a new roll of toilet paper in the bathroom, take an extra minute or two and put a couple of drops of your favorite essential oil on the inside cardboard section of the toilet paper roll.
Insert your toilet paper into the holder and viola; you now have a simple bathroom air freshener that will keep your bathroom smelling funky fresh. The great thing about this is that you could buy one air freshener at the store and for the same price, you can buy a bottle of essential oil that will last you 10 times longer and smells 10 times better.
Every time I use my toilet paper, I feel like I am frolicking through a lavender field…Ooohhh, sooooo dreamy and oh so fresh!
Enjoy your new affordable eco air freshener and don’t be surprised if your friends begin to ask you why your bathroom smells so amazing!
