How To Make Your Bathroom Smell Good

How To Make Your Bathroom Smell Good

A while ago I walked into my husband’s bathroom & I just wasn’t loving the smell. Not that there was anything bad or gross in there, but it just needed to be smelling more like a spa. Am I right?

So in this post I want to share with you how I whipped that whole situation into shape & how easy it was. Now, it’s smelling like the Mandarin Oriental & is totally dialed in, no matter what goes on in there.

The thing is, I want to love every detail of my house. My life and work is so chatoic that when I’m at home I want to feel relaxed and zen and peaceful. So every.little.thing. matters. Right down to the bathmat.

The Skinny Confidential’s Tips For Making Your Bathroom Smell Good:

♡ Make your whole house a vibe.

Let’s set up the foundation of the whole house first, & then let it carry over to the bathroom. You do this by making the best homemade potpourri. My stepmom taught me this & all you do is take a small pot, fill it with water, orange slices & cinnamon sticks & let it simmer.

It’s so easy, non-toxic & sets the best vibe throughout your whole house. A little better for winter/cozy weather but works all year ’round, really.

We can’t forget about the actual toilet. Poo~Pourri should be in every single bathroom in the world.

You basically just spritz it into the toilet bowl before-you-go. The spray is a pure blend of NATURAL ESSENTIAL OILS that creates a film on the surface of the water.

The protective barrier traps the bad odors under the surface, before it ever begins! I MEAN!!! All you’ll smell is a refreshing bouquet of NATURAL ESSENTIAL OILS. YOU KNOW I LOVE PREVENTATIVE MEASURES! I MEAN IF THIS ISN’T ON BRAND I DON’T WHAT IT IS.

♡BRanch Essentials cleaning products.

This is my favorite brand of cleaning products (use code SKINNY for 15% off) because they’re all natural & you need to make sure your bathroom is clean to make it smell good. Duh.

The brand is family-owned & all their products are non-toxic. The family’s entire health journey really interesting actually. They are living proof that switching to a clean, chemical-free lifestyle can do wonders for your health. Be sure to check out their products.


Because always candles. HOWEVER !! Recently I found out that a lot of wicks from candles are full of nasty stuff, even if they say non-toxic. Always love a Taja candle and more recently I’ve been very into plain beeswax candles. They’re scentless but help eliminate odors, instead of just cover it up. Big fan.

Other Ideas:

+ keep your bathroom clean.

+ clean out drains with white vinegar and baking soda.

+ if possible, use a fan or open a window when showering to keep away musty smells, mold & mildew.

+ try a eucalyptus shower to make your bathroom smell like a spa.

+ change your towels often.

+ get yourself the best bathmat in the world to keep things clean & looking chic.

Your bathroom doesn’t have to smell like shit. LOL.
