Caring for your mat

Maintain the magic of your mat

Caring for your yoga mat doesn’t have to be more admin. Instead, we like to think of it as a kind of “practical magic”. We find it helps to make cleaning your mat a weekly ritual, complete with a spell…

Yoga mat cleansing spell

For the magical cleansing spray, you’ll need
● 100ml Spray bottle
● Water
● Your choice of 2 antibacterial essential oils*


*Over time, alcohol and petroleum-based solvents break down and dry out the natural rubber in your mat. Essential oils, on the other hand, protect and extend the life of your mat. One more reason essential oils are pure magic. We recommend tea tree and lavender (for its calming properties), but you can also try lemongrass, eucalyptus, and/or peppermint. Trust your intuition.


Method


1. Fill the bottle with water (about ¾ full)
2. Add 5-6 drops of each essential oil*
3. Shake the solution
4. Hold the bottle at a distance from the mat (about 10-15 cm)
5. Spray
6. Gently pat or wipe dry with a clean towel**
*A high concentration of essential oils will cause your mat to become slippery.
**We recommend a white (or light) towel to prevent the colours from bleeding

 

Cleansing intention

Make it magical by holding an intention in your heart as you go through the steps. You can use
ours or come up with your own—there’s no such thing as right or wrong when it comes to
magic!

My yoga practice is sacred and my mat is a safe space.
I clean my mat with love as a divine act of appreciation.
