Regardless of what type of yoga practice you incorporate into your daily routine, you’re bound to lose yourself in the calming wonder.
When you start sweating during practice—especially in a bikram (or “hot”) yoga class—it is imperative that you focus on a clean environment. The first step is purchasing your own yoga mat as opposed to using the mats at the studio. Next, making sure that your yoga mat is cleaned on a regular basis should be a priority.
In order to keep your immunity up throughout the year, and especially during the colder months, it is crucial to maintain good hygienic practices. Staying clean and eating nutritiously are key components of boosting your immunity, but your environment can make or break you when it comes to immunity.
Your sweaty gym clothes and yoga mat are likely dirty and filled with germs. In order to avoid getting sick, carrying a portable disinfectant spray in your gym bag can seriously make a difference in keeping clean.
Try making your own DIY Yoga Mat Spray (instructions below) for your own natural yoga mat spray. Immunity Miracle Essential Oil is a key component of this cleaner that can potentially help boost immunity, promote overall wellness, maintain healthy vitamin and mineral absorption, and improve bodily functions.
Lavender Miracle Essential Oil is another oil featured in this spray that has amazing aromatic effects to help you achieve healthy emotional balance during practice.
This cleaner isn’t just limited to use on your yoga mat; spray this mixture on your gym shoes or in your gym bag for a natural effect.
*You can certainly adjust these essential oils to your liking, but we find that the Immunity and Lavender combination works best. Lemongrass is also a wonderful alternative scent also found in many yoga classrooms. Additionally, adding more witch hazel and reducing the amount of distilled water in this mixture can lead to a more powerful natural cleaner solution.
