It is shaucha time!
So by now your mat smells funny and you’re too lazy to bring it back home with you? Are you embarrased by the sour stench when the teacher comes to adjust you? Making your own mat cleaner is fun and really simple.
Many cold-pressed citrus oils have both antiseptic and fat dissolving properties
You will need the following:
– Sterilized water
– Essential oils
– A little spray bottle
You can play with it, but start adding just a few drops of the essential oils. Then test it and see how much of a scent you can take (and think of your fellow yoga mates… don’t go crazy on the oils).
The most important part is that you use essential oils with antibacterial/antiseptic properties, such as tea tree, cinnamon bark, clove, fennel, grapefruit, lemon, lime, thyme, oregano, pine, rosemary, etc. Once you find your favorite combination, fill the bottle, and whenever you spray your mat let it dry for a few minutes.
