DIY Yoga Mat Cleaning Spray

When was the last time you cleaned your yoga mat?  Class after class,  more dirt, dust, skin cells, and other particles build up on our mat if we aren't routinely giving it a nice wipe down.  Who wants to put their face over weeks of feet on the mat?  Making your own cleaning spray for your yoga mat is quick and easy and it only uses a few simple ingredients - which means no toxic chemicals on a place where we are caring for our bodies.  Check out the recipe below to learn how to make your own cleaning spray.


Spray Bottle


Witch Hazel or White Vinegar

Essential Oils - We recommend Lavender, Peppermint, Sweet Orange, Lemon Grass, Tea Tree, and Jasmine.


1.  Fill your spray bottle up 3/4 of the way with water.

2.  Fill the remainder of the bottle with Witch Hazel or White Vinegar, leaving enough room to add your essential oils.  (You can use Witch Hazel if you do not like the smell of vinegar or you can use vinegar if you do not have any Witch Hazel.)

3.  Add a few drops of your favorite essential oils & shake vigorously; adding more until desired fragrance is achieved.  Don't be afraid to get creative and combine different oils together! 

That's it, you're all set!  You can use this spray every time you practice, keeping your sacred space clean and smelling great.  Let us know your combinations in the comments below, we'd lve to hear from you!
