Magical yoga mat spray

One of the advantages of yoga is that it doesn’t require much equipment. Your yoga mat is your best friend: it’s your practice space and your place of refuge. So why not take good care of this valued accomplice?

The hours it spends on the floor, contact with your hands and feet, and perspiration all promote the growth of bacteria, mold, and unwanted odours.

So here’s the first product in your yoga kit: a magical yoga mat spray!

Utensils

 

Ingredients

 

Traditional Sun salutation Lotus

2,1g. true lavender essential oilLavandula angustifolia

2,1g. tea tree essential oilMelaleuca alternifolia

1,5g. sweet orange essential oilCitrus sinensis

1,5g. lemon essential oilCitrus limonum

1,5g. lime essential oilCitrus aurantifolia

0,7g. geranium essential oilPelargonium graveolens

0,7g. palmarosa essential oilCymbopogon martinii

 

Steps to follow

Since it’s not necessary to heat the ingredients, you can blend them directly in the spray bottle.

1. In the ramekin, weigh the essential oil dispersant. Then use the funnel to pour it into the bottle.

2. In the same ramekin, weigh the essential oils and transfer them to the bottle. Close the bottle with the stopper and shake vigorously.

3. In the ramekin, weigh the 70% rubbing alcohol and pour it into the bottle.

4. Weigh the water and pour into the bottle. Close and shake vigorously.

Since the dispersant disperses the oils for just a short period (unlike emulsifiers, which permanently disperse oils in water), the blend must be shaken before each use.

Use: Either before or after your yoga session, shake the bottle and spray on the yoga mat, then dry with a clean cloth.

About diffusion and diffusers

Our range of essential oil diffusers is designed to suit every need and every budget! Mini diffusers are perfect for small spaces (the room where you practise yoga!) and their design is well suited to this calming Zen practice.

Diffusion tips

  • If possible, use pure, organic essential oils.
  • Take breaks between diffusions: Continuously diffusing essential oils saturates the air with aromatic molecules.
  • After diffusions, clean the diffuser. Essential oils left in a diffuser can oxidize and thicken.
  • Never diffuse for more than two hours in a closed room.
  • Never diffuse for more than five minutes in a child’s bedroom.

Express hand cleansing gel

Once you’ve finished your session, clean your hands with this express hand-sanitizing gel. You’ll leave the yoga centre with clean hands as you head home for that refreshing shower!

  1. Bonjour! Merci beaucoup pour vos recettes pour la pratique du yoga! Quel serait l’effet d’enlever le dispersant de la bruine magique? Puisqu’il faut agiter la bruine avant usage de toute façon, peut-on enlever le dispersant ? Quelles seraient les conséquences?

    • Bonjour Rose,

      Nous avons constaté que lorsque l’on retire le dispersant de la recette, la remonté des huiles essentielles à la surface de la phase aqueuse est très rapide, presque instantanée. Ce n’est pas pratique pour utiliser un produit qui soit constant au niveau de la concentration de l’odeur. Le dispersant permet de mélanger correctement les deux phases pendant plusieurs heures.

      Bonne journée!
