For those of us who sweat our as*es off in yoga, this recipe is a God send!
You can buy cleaners for your mat for $10 or $20, but this one is next to nothing, especially if you already have essential oils at home.
I like making my own yoga mat cleaner for a few reasons. When you’re doing yoga, you’re hot, therefore your pores are open and susceptible to absorbing toxins. The ingredients I use to clean my mat are perfectly safe and I don’t need to be worried when I’m trying to relax in shavasana!
I also love the way my mat smells now. Full of lavender – very relaxing and soothing – perfect for a yoga class!
Here’s a quick demonstration on how to make your own natural yoga mat cleaner…….
