Funky to Fresh: DIY Yoga Mat Spray

clean yoga mat

Do you find yourself practicing yoga on a daily basis? If so, chances are you have a specific mat for each style of yoga that you practice. Your yoga mat is something that you cannot neglect in the world of yoga, so it is important to keep it clean!

Making sure that your yoga mat is in tip-top shape is an important part of creating a healthy yoga practice. This means you need to roll out those well-loved mats every once in a while and clean every square inch it. No matter what type of yoga you may practice or how often you practice, it is important to show your mat a little TLC every once and a while.

There are many yogis out there who take one look at their mat and think that it’s perfectly clean, when in reality it is in need of some attention. I must admit, I can be one of those people at times, but nothing beats the sensation of a clean yoga mat especially after my yoga sessions.

I enjoy a little heated vinyasa yoga from time-to-time, so keeping my mat clean is a priority of mine. There is something about doing yoga in a hot room at a fast and powerful pace that keeps me coming back for more, but with that heated vinyasa addiction, comes a very dirty mat!

To freshmen up my yoga mat, I create a refreshing yoga mat spray. This mat spray is made up of simple, natural, and soothing ingredients that will make you want to go straight into Savasana. With the essence of peppermint mixed with the soothing aromas of lavender, lemongrass, and tea tree, this yoga mat spray is bound to make you feel energized and grounded during your next yoga session.
