In my ongoing desire to find more great ostomy products, I came across a Canadian brand that has been famous for their in-toilet deodorant products, but they also have in-pouch ostomy deodorant, too. Today I’ll be reviewing the Just a Drop Lightly Scented pouch deodorant.
About the product
This product comes in a blue liquid, which is common among pouch deodorants, so be mindful not to get it on your clothes. It’s also scented with eucalyptus, which smells like a nice mouthwash or chewing gum. I find the smell quite pleasant, but some people may not like how strong it is, or they might not like the smell itself. Unfortunately, unlike the brand’s original in-toilet deodorant, these drops come in only one scent.
It should be noted that this product is strictly for odor reduction, and is not a pouch lubricant. For many ileostomates, this likely won’t be of much concern.
I have also confirmed with the company that none of their products contain animal-ingredients, so this is suitable for vegans.
These drops are available in two sizes: a 1oz (30ml) “travel size” and an 8oz (240ml) bottle. The sample bottle I received is the 30ml size and it seems to last forever, likely due to the tiny amount that’s required.
How to use this product
Like similar in-pouch ostomy deodorant, you add several drops to the inside of your pouch every time you empty your pouch. Ironically, although the product is called “Just A Drop”, you do have to use more than that. The instructions suggest using 4 to 12 drops, which is far less than what other pouch deodorants recommended. This will help keep your expenses low, and a single bottle will last you for a very long time. Using a standard calculation of approx. 20 drops per ml, a travel size bottle will last nearly three months if you’re using four drops SEVEN times a day! For a colostomate who uses it less often, this will last well over 6 months.
At night, when I know my pouch will fill up before I get a chance to empty it, I tend to use 8 drops. For daytime use, 4 to 6 drops works well. I never had to use 12 drops.
Does it work?
In one word, yes! Not only did the in-pouch ostomy deodorant Just’s Drop work to eliminate odors for me, but it leaves a fresh scent behind using minimal quantities. With many in-pouch ostomy deodorants, I often start with the minimum recommended quantity, and end up needing to use the maximum recommended quantity (or more) for them to be effective. With the Just a Drop Lightly Scented drops, I use the minimum amount, and it works. The drops were so effective that it would often work through several pouch empties without having to add more every time. This comes in particularly useful when I go out and want the convenience of not having to use the drops in public; I simply add a few extra drops before leaving the house, and I’m worry free until I get home.
At the time of this review (Sept 2014), the 30ml bottles sell for approx. CDN$7.99, and the 240ml bottles are approx. CDN$29.95. I’ve seen this brand being sold on Amazon and it can be ordered in Canada
and the rest of the world, either through the company website or online retailers who carry it. I don’t believe the company offers free samples outright, although they did send some mini bottles that I could give to family and friends.
- Very effective as an odor neutralizer and in-pouch ostomy deodorant.

but everyone deals with it, right? Everyone would Bathroom odours. There’s no ‘nice’ way to approach this topic really,love a solution for it , right? Let me fill you in a a perfect product to help you out with this – it’s Just’a Drop.
So when I first saw this product in the store I whole heartedly admit that my husband and I got a little giggle out of it and figured that it couldn’t possibly do the job it said it could. I mean, come on, eliminate odours with just a drop in the toilet? We assumed this product would be like and air freshener of sorts and would just mask the smell. You know, giving you that weird mix of aromas (as my husband would refer to as ‘making it smell like someone pooped a flower’….yeah…that mix).
With no high hopes we put a bottle on the back of the toilet for the next person who needed it. After a few days of the whole family giving it a trial run I 100% eat my original words. This product does what it says it will! There was no disguised odours. Just’a Drop comes in a variety of scents (orange, floral, refreshing spring and eucalyptus) and it leaves your bathroom with a clean scent of whatever your choice was to use.
So, how does it work? Well, before you go to the washroom you put a couple of drops into the water. That’s it! The solution spreads over the top of the water and makes a barrier. Just’a Drop is made of plant extracts and oils so you can actually see the barrier on the top. It’s also 100% safe for septic systems. When you use the washroom the barrier prevents any odours from escaping into the air. It keeps everything contained below the water.
If you have a medical issue that causes you to need to frequent washrooms while you are outside of the privacy of your own home Just’a Drop comes in convenient single use packets that are great to carry in your purse of pocket. They also have travel size bottles. Just’a Drop also has a formulation that is completely safe for use with ostomy pouches and it comes in various sizes and in both spray pumps and drops. Something to suit the needs of everyone.
The Just a Spray is a mist spray pump (think hairspray bottle) and is available in 9ml up to 220ml sizes.
They come in fantastic scents like Peaches, Apple, Key Lime and Baby Powder. I personally LOVE the 9ml size for keeping in my purse. I used to keep the small drop bottle in my purse but found I needed to keep it in a baggie or it would leak a little bit. These spray bottles are small and convenient (fit in your pocket and looks no different then a tube of lip gloss) and if they run out the cap screws off so you can refill from a larger bottle you may have at home.
They currently have a promo code available – enter “newwebsite” at checkout on their website for 30% off your entire purchase (limited time) and they also have a Buy 1 Just’a Spray product and get a 30ml bottle for FREE!

“I have to say for a little drop the smell is a perfect amount! I really thought I would need more then a drop. I didn’t believe a drop would make wonderful flower scent noticeable but it did!”
“My girls love that they get to add just “one” drop into the “potty” before they sit on it and it makes the whole bathroom smell “pretty” as my girls would say.. Lol. I love how easy it is, and how small and convenient they are. ”
