DIY Yoga Mat Cleaner

As you may have already noticed, I'm a fan of a good DIY project. With Summer upon us those hot sweaty yoga classes and make your mat start to smell - well - a little less than fresh!
There are different kinds of mat cleaners that you can invest in, or you can just DIY in 5 minutes or less. Honestly!

Here's what you'll need:

1 spray bottle - about 1 L in size
Lavender Essential Oil
Eucalyptus Essential Oil

Fill the spray bottle 2/3 full with filtered water
Add 15 drops of Lavender essential Oil
Add 15 drops of Eucalyptus essential Oil
Give it a shake

That's all there is to it folks!

Lavender has calming properties as well as antiseptic and antifungal properties - and it also smells fabulous!
Eucalyptus is anti-bacterial and is a great decongestant.

Spray liberally on your mat after your hot yoga class and then give it a wipe down with a towel.

An eco-friendly nice smelling cleaning product!

In good health,

Dr. Stacey Welton, ND
