DIY Yoga Mat Spray

Keeping your yoga mat fresh in between classes is easy with just a few supplies. The following essential oil cleaning spray is a healthy and natural way to clean and care for your mat.

Melaluca (tea tree) Essential Oil has antibacterial, anti-parasitic, antiseptic and antifungal properties, helping to keep bacteria at bay.

Lavender Essential Oil not only smells good, it too has antifungal and antiseptic properties. It can be used to help balance moods and promote feelings of health, love and general well-being.

Peppermint Essential Oil, in addition to having antibacterial and antiseptic properties is purifying and stimulating to the conscious mind. It has a clean, fresh scent and is good for clearing the air – energetically or actually.

Supplies and Directions

1 spray bottle

Few drops each Tea Tree/Melaluca, Lavender and Peppermint essential oil

Distilled water

Add the essential oils and distilled water to the spray bottle and shake well. Voila! A safe and healthy spray to keep your mat clean.

You can use any essential oils for this spray, but I love doTERRA’s oils because of their purity and potency. If you’d like more info on how you can buy doTERRA essential oils at 25% off, click here.

*Essential oils are not suitable for all mats (i.e. Lululemon ‘The Mat’ and Liforme); depending on the type of material, it is possible that oils can damage the mat instead of cleaning it. If unsure, test a small part of the mat first.

  1. I also add a little vinegar to my yoga mat cleaner 🙂 I didn’t think of peppermint though, thanks for posting!

    • Oh yeah! Vinegar is great too – I love its cleansing properties, but sometimes I don’t like the smell of it, hence the peppermint instead 😉
