Ask yourself this question… when was the last time you properly cleaned your yoga mat? If it has been a while, why not give your mat the same love you lend to yourself with this DIY Lavender & Tea Tree Oil Mat Cleaner.
This DIY yoga mat cleaner spray is made with two simple essential oils: tea tree and lavender. Tea tree essential oil is antibacterial and antifungal. Lavender essential oil is an antibacterial oil with a relaxing and calming scent that relieves tension and is great for unwinding post-yoga.
You can add more lavender, or try other essential oil scents to your liking, until you find a formula that is perfect for your needs. For instance, if you aren’t a fan of tea tree oil, you can substitute it with another antibacterial oil such as lemongrass, eucalyptus, or peppermint.
I will bring my homemade mat cleaner this week to classes and you can try it out! For the recipe, you can see below:
- 4oz spray bottle
- Distilled or spring water (3/4 of spray bottle)
- 10 drops of tea tree essential oil
