A green yoga mat sets on grass


Here’s a simple to make yoga mat cleaner, just the thing to freshen up your practice!


What you’ll need

–  Glass or plastic spray bottle

–  2 parts purified water

–  1 part witch hazel

–  Tea tree oil (about 3 to 5 drops)

–  Lavender and Peppermint essential oils (about 5 drops each)*

* Prefer a different scent? Eucalyptus, Sweet Orange and Rosemary also work well.

The steps

Pour water and witch hazel into the spray bottle, followed by tea tree oil and essential oils. Screw on the lid and shake to mix well.

Whenever your mat needs a little love, spray an even coat of the mixture over the mat, then wipe gently with a clean cloth. Let dry before rolling or folding up your mat.

Here’s to a fresh, clean yoga practice!
