Perfect Yoga Mat Spray

July 11, 2016 Comments Off on Perfect Yoga Mat Spray

I will admit it, I like to use my own equipment when working out.  I appreciate when fitness facilities offer equipment as some people may not have their own or left it at home.  I like knowing where my equipment has been and if it has been cleaned.  It’s one of the many little things I like to control in my life if possible.

Currently, I am primarily working out at home and use my yoga mat when I am doing Pilates and Barre.  After each use I grab my DIY yoga mat cleaner and spray my yoga mat off and wipe it dry with a towel.  I also use this spray when I incorporate any fitness equipment into my workout.  If my sweat touched it, I spray it and wipe it with my towel.  My mat has been loved by me and still looks and smells great thanks to my spray.

For me, living a healthy lifestyle is important.  Healthy for me covers all areas of my life and I try really hard to live a chemical free lifestyle.  I want my mat to last as long as possible and I have found that using a chemical free spray has helped my mat last through many uses.

Making your own yoga mat spray is easy.  It’s also a great gift to give to your favorite Yoga or Pilates instructor.  They would love this gift!  I use a 20z bottle which is perfect to take with me in my gym bag for the times I head to the gym to take a class.  I typically place it right next to my water bottle as a reminder to use it right after class.  It’s also a great conversation starter as more and more people are wanting to live a chemical free lifestyle.  In a matter of a couple minutes you will have your own yoga mat spray to clean anything your sweat has touched.

In a 2oz spray bottle add 15 drops of Tea Tree oil and 10 drops of Lavender oil.  Fill the bottle 3/4 of the way with distilled water.  Fill the remaining with Witch Hazel. Place the top on the bottle and shake.
