DIY Yoga Mat Cleaner

Yoga mats can contain a lot of bacterias, so keep yours clean. There are numerous cleaning products for yoga mats on the market. However, I prefer to make my custom mat cleaner once I put my body onto it, especially my face. It is so easy to prepare, and you can combine your favourite essences, making your wellness potion.

Tea Tree Oil

Tea Tree oil is obtained from an Australian plant called Melaleuca alternifolia.

The oil contains antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, and antifungal properties.
