Let’s be honest, how many of us actually clean our yoga mats regularly?
…Not me… I know, that is an embarrassing confession but it’s true. I usually just wipe my mat down with a towel in between practices. Before you judge me just remember that nap times only last so long! Lately I have been thinking that it would be a great idea for me to actually clean my mat. What better way to do so than by using essential oils!
Spray Bottle (I prefer to use glass for my essential oils)
Essential Oils (15 drops Melaluca- the best for antibacterial purposes! I also add lemongrass (10 drops) and lavender(10 drops)- for antibacterial properties and scent! My spray bottle is quite large so feel free to adjust the amounts of EOs based on your bottle size.
-fill your bottle 3/4 of the way with water
-fill the rest with Witch Hazel, leaving a bit of room for oils
-Add Essential Oils
-Close the bottle tightly and shake the mixture
-Spray on your mat and wipe down with a clean cloth
-hang your mat to dry for a few minutes
-Enjoy your next practice on a clean mat!
