Since I’ve been doing hot yoga a couple times a week, my mat gets really sweaty and gross. I knew I needed to get some sort of spray for it, but I wasn’t sure what kind. I did some research and it turns out that making spray is simple, quick, cheap, and fun. So I decided to make my own and then share here what I did because it turned out great and it was a fun thing to do.

What you need:

Distilled water

Spray bottle

Alcohol-Free Witch Hazel

Essential Oil

What you do:

Fill the spray bottle 3/4th full of distilled water

Fill the remaining 1/4th with the witch hazel

Add five drops of essential oil. I personally decided to use lavender, because I’m obsessed with it, but any essential oil will work as long as you enjoy the smell.

Then shake it up.

Roll your mat out, spray it all over, and wipe it down with a washcloth or hand towel.

I’ve been trying to spray my mat down every time after I practice, but we all know that life gets busy and sometimes that just isn’t realistic, but I make it a goal to spray it down at least every three practices and now I look even more forward to getting on my mat.
