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!

Ingredients:

Witch Hazel

Water

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.
