When was the last time you cleaned your yoga mat?
This simple and all natural DIY mat spray is safe and effective at cleaning your yoga mat AND clearing away what I call ‘karmic sludge’… you know, all that other stuff your practice supports you with?
In a clean spray bottle, MIX:
1/2 a cup of water, 1/4 cup of witch hazel, 20 drop of tea tree oil, and 15 drop of your favourite essential oil.
🌱 Distilled from the melaleuca plant, Tea Tree oil is an all natural anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral essential oil that not only cleanses your mat, but studies suggest that is also eliminates airborne bacteria. Plus, it’s fresh clean scent will awaken and refresh your sense.
🌱 Witch Hazel is a small shrub whose astringent tannin properties help to reduce bacteria collecting on surfaces. It can also be used in topical application to help alleviate skin irritation from minor cuts and scraps, and itchy bug bites.
High quality therapeutic grade essential oils are a wonderful addition to your self-care practice. With Sweet Orange helping to calm an agitated or scattered mind, Lavender can cool you down after a busy day, or Eucalyptus which will help boost your energy.
What’s your favourite essential oil to work with? The possibilities are endless. Let me know your favourite ones, or combination, so I can give it a try too!
