Many of my students have asked me what I use to clean my yoga mat, so here it is! I use this mixture of essential oils because it is known as the “allergy blend”, full of antiviral, antiseptic, antibacterial, antihistamine & antifungal properties. Think of how frequently your skin comes in contact with your yoga mat; how often you inhale deeply during your practice. Do you want harsh chemicals entering your bloodstream?
The oils in this blend are three of the most commonly used essential oils. You can even purchase them in a kit (contact me to figure out how to shop at wholesale pricing)! The mix is quick and easy to make.
You will need:
- Spray Bottle (it’s important to use glass or BPA free plastic)
- Distilled Water
- Peppermint Essential Oil
- Lavender Essential Oil
- Lemon Essential Oil
How to make:
- Fill the spray bottle almost all of the way with distilled water
- Add 5-7 drops of each essential oil
- Tighten the lid & shake it up
- That’s it! It’s that easy!
Don’t forget to take care of your yoga mat. After all, it is a sacred place! Clean it after each use with this mat spray. Store it out of reach from your children & pets. Try not to forget it in your car during cold or hot weather.
