This Yoga Mat Spray DIY recipe is an excellent way to naturally clean the mat and keep the bacteria away. A Yoga routine should be finished with a good cleaning. This recipe only calls for a few ingredients, and can be made fairly quickly. You just needs some witch hazel, essential oil, and water. Create your own natural spray for your yoga mat cleaning routine.
Cleaning my yoga mat is part of my hygge morning ritual for me. It’s satisfying to be done with official practice, yet still be in rhythm with my own body and such. It is wonderful to have have a nice scented spray, a clean towel, and a couple of minutes before I continue with my day.
Having a clean mat is important because I don’t know what types of bacteria, are growing on my feet or my hands. EWW! I practice yoga to stay healthy. It’s always a good idea to clean up after practice daily.
My favorite part about making my own yoga mat spray DIY recipe is I can choose the ingredients and the essential oils to go in the recipe.
The first thing I like to use in my own recipe is witch hazel. It is an all natural way to keep the bacteria at bay. It’s pH is slightly acidic (3.5 to 4.5), and has multi-use purposes in beauty and health industries.
I add filtered water to my batch of yoga mat spray. I purchase a 16 oz. bottle of water to make the batch.
And the third ingredient that is added to the yoga mat spray DIY recipe is essential oils. I really liked my combination of 10 drops of rose, 10 drops lemongrass, and 10 drops grounding. Find a combination of what you like, essentially, you’ll need about 30 drops total.
Start with a large spray bottle with a trigger handle and carefully pour the witch hazel and filtered water into the bottle. Then, drop the essential oil scents of your choice into the top. Replace the spray nozzle, and screw it on tightly. Shake well.
Create a label for your spray. The label should say what is inside of it, the current day, and an expiration date of 30 days. If you are doing a 30 days yoga challenge, you’ll enjoy the same scent for 30 days. As an added personal bonus, you can see your progress of your daily practice. It’s fun to observe the liquid go down as you clean the mat daily!
