I love to work out and yoga is my go to practice!
I especially love to practice in the beautiful out doors. With that said there's lots of dirt and critters outside but that doesn't bother me when it comes to my mat. This spray is antibacterial so it not only cleans all the icky stuff off my mat but adds the benefits of essential oils to my routine. I can take this spray with me when I hit the gym to clean the machines I work out on too.
3/4 cup distilled water
1/4 cup witch hazel
10 drops melaleuca essential oil
5 drops lavender essential oil
5 drops lemon essential oil
8 oz. Glass Spray Bottle
Pour all ingredients into the glass spray bottle, place the spray top on the bottle, and shake to combine.
Lay mat out on a clean surface to begin. Spray your mat down with the essential oil cleaning solution, and proceed to wipe the mat down using a soft, dry cloth. Flip the mat over, and repeat.
Hang the mat to dry.
Store the leftover mixture for use after each yoga practice. Remember to shake cleaning spray well before each use.
Note: Because of the potency of essential oils and the different chemical makeups of mats, this recipe may not work on all types of yoga mats. To be sure that these oils do not harm your mat, a small corner can be tested before continuing to clean the rest of your mat.
