I actually started carrying Poo-Pourri at Bamboo Spa, many years before I opened Evocative Essentials. I was at a trade show and someone was handing small samples. It was the Original Citrus and I was really looking forward to trying it out to see if it worked. The next day, after I woke, I excitedly spritzed the bowl, and then I went and it was like heaven! I couldn’t believe the only odour I was aware of was that lovely citrus scent. I was hooked. I just had to get my hands on more!
So, how does this stuff really work? Poo-Pourri is made up of surfactants and a proprietary blend, which means it’s a secret. Basically, a proprietary blend means that rather than listing each ingredient individually, they can list one ingredient as a whole. That’s how the secret is kept.
In this case, the Poo-Pourri works using essential oils and a surfactant. The surfactant sits on the water and creates a milky white film. Once that film covers the bowl, you’re good to go! Your poop will splash through the top layer and the smell gets trapped underneath the water. It’s brilliant!
I was carrying Poo-Pourri before it was popular. Once they came out with this video, it went viral and sales sky rocketed! I wasn’t able to re-stock my shelves for another 6 months because the company hadn’t anticipated the success of their marketing campaign.
I am happy to say that the company is now doing much better at keeping up with their success and have made more videos, have added different essential oil blends and have even changed their packaging. It’s actually a really nice addition to any bathroom décor and the scents are phenomenal.
I know there are a lot of DIY recipes out there and hey, who doesn’t like to make their own if they can… the point is, do those DIY’s actually work as well as the real thing? I would find it hard to believe.
If you haven’t tried this amazing product yet, do yourself a favour. I really think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!
