Natural Yoga Mat CleanerI’ll admit it, for years I never cleaned my yoga mat! Class after class, I just rolled it up, not thinking anything about it. Then one day it dawned on me, all of the floors it had laid on and all of the dirt, grime, and germs it must be carrying. Being asthmatic and very sensitive to chemicals, I wanted to find a natural yoga mat cleaner.

Knowing the antibacterial and cleansing powers of essentials oils, they became my go to source for research. This formula consists of just five essential oils. All of them are very affordable with the exception of jasmine, which you can  feel free to leave out if you want.

Below are the five essential oils I picked for my formula and the reasons why I felt they were the best choices:

Jasmine absolute oil is very pricey. You can feel free to skip this one but I included it for its antiseptic properties as well as the fact  it is very calming and relaxing.

Cedarwood  also has antiseptic properties and it’s a wonderful grounding essential oil, perfect for your yoga mat!

Tea tree essential oil has very powerful antibacterial, antimicrobial, and antiviral properties making this a must have ingredient for this formula.

Basil essential oil is another one that has antibacterial properties.
