DIY Lavender and Tea Tree Oil Mat Cleaner

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
  • 10 drops of lavender essential oil
  • Optional: Witch hazel or white vinegar (fill 1/4 of spray bottle)
