A third of the year is already over guys, how is everyone doing with their New Year’s resolutions? I’m not even sure what most of mine were at this point, but the one I’ve stuck with is yoga. Man it feels good to start the day with a little calm. But with daily practices my mat was looking and smelling a little worn. So I looked at yoga mat sprays and saw they were $15+ for essentially water. D-I-By By By.
This spray is made in ratios so it can be easily scaled up or down to your bottle. I like keeping a little 2 oz. spray in my gym bag and a larger one at home as a room spray. Gotta keep it fresh everywhere, everyday 😉
Combine all parts in glass spray bottle. Slap a label on. Shake well. Easier than child’s pose!
You’ll want to mist your mat after each practice. This is more a daily cleanser instead of a deep clean. If you want to deep clean your mat, use a gentle dish soap and a bathtub.
So what’s in this thing? Well the filtered water will keep the nozzle from gunking up. Witch hazel is an alcohol and an oil, so it disinfects and acts as a carrier oil for the essential oils. Tea tree oil is the all-around perfect, natural cleaner. It’s antimicrobial, antiviral, and antifungal.
The essential oils are of course a nice aromatherapy, but similar to the the beard/body oil, you can use lavender, sweet orange, cedarwood, or eucalyptus for extra antimicrobial benefits. Super sweet and simple.
It was so much fun making little labels I couldn’t stop at just one! All three are on the label sheet. Let me know which one is your favorite!
P.S. if you’re looking for an amazing home routine, I highly recommended checking out Yoga with Adrienne’s 31 Days of Yoga series. She has two and is low key hilarious fantastic at creating routines.
