I love doing Yoga for Abs, I really work up a sweat when I do that workout. The only downfall to that workout is that sweat on my yoga mat. And a sweaty mat breeds bacteria and odor after awhile if not properly cleaned. I have purchased a few different yoga mat spray’s but I wanted to come up with a DIY option and save some money if possible. Then I tried a few different DIY yoga mat spray’s from the internet but wasn’t really satisfied. I figured I would talk to my friend who is a yoga instructor on what she uses and together we came up with the yoga mat spray below. Since I had lots of essential oils I tried some of Radha Beauty’s for this yoga mat spray.
Radha Beauty has some really great products and this tea tree essential oil is one of them! Tea Tree essential oil has antibacterial properties which makes it great for creating all those household cleaners that your favorite DIY’ers make and post about. One of my favorite things to make is yoga mat spray, its crazy how easy and economical it is to make your own. This tea tree mixture will keep your yoga mat clean. Here is my favorite recipe for my yoga mat that I’ve posted about before.
DIY Yoga Mat Spray
- 3/4 cup distilled water (especially if you have hard water)
- 1/4 cup witch hazel (alcohol free) or white vinegar
- 4 drops Tea Tree essential oil
- 4 drops Lavender essential oil
Mix all ingredients into a glass spray bottle and shake well. Just spray on yoga mat and then wipe off to clean.
Disclaimer: Please do a spray test on your yoga mat before spraying entire mat to ensure it won’t ruin it as not all mats are created from same materials.
