Natural and Antibacterial DIY Lavender Yoga Mat Spray and Countertop Spray

Learn how to make non-toxic homemade lavender cleaning spray with ingredients you probably already have at home! Anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and smells great.I’ve been on a bit of a cleaning kick lately… let me assure you, this does not come naturally for me. However I’ve been cleaning countertops, tables, cupboard doors, windows, mirrors… even my yoga mat. The reason why I’ve been on such a cleaning kick is because I’ve finally found a natural, antibacterial cleaning spray that I love. The best news? I made it at home with ingredients around the house and as soon as I run out I can whip myself up another spray bottle of it! It smells good, it doesn’t give me headaches because it doesn’t contain harsh chemicals and it can be used on virtually any surface.

I always eye the yoga mat sprays at yoga studios. They smell so good, but a little bottle of it is quite expensive and I’d rather spend my money on extra yoga classes. I’ve been meaning to try making my own spray for ages and I finally got around to it. I love the result.

What you need:

  • A spray bottle (we got ours at the dollar store)
  • 1/4 cup white vinegar*
  • 1/4 cup witch hazel*
  • Lavender oil, or your favorite essential oil (Our lavender oil is from Escents)
  • Tea Tree Oil (Our tea tree oil is from Escents)
  • 2 1/2 cups water

*If you don’t have witch hazel you use 1/2 cup of white vinegar. If you don’t have white vinegar you can use 1/2 cup of witch hazel.

Directions:

  • Pour 1/4 cup white vinegar, 1/4 cup of witch hazel and 2 1/2 cups of water into your spray bottle. 
  • Add your lavender oil and tea tree oil. Every bottle seems to drip differently and everyone likes different strengths of scent. I used 25 drops of lavender oil and 5 drops of tea tree oil.

White vinegar and witch hazel are both known for their natural, anti-bacterial properties. Tea Tree oil is known for it’s anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties. If you require a spray that requires anti-fungal properties you may want to add extra tea tree oil.

    My yoga mat could definitely use some help! I really love lavender, so this seems like the perfect solution to my sometimes icky mat (the gym floor is always so gross!). Thanks!

    SO excited about this spray… you have no idea! I’m allergic to most commercial cleansers, which drives everyone in my family crazy. But my headaches drive me crazy, so this is exactly what I needed. And our yoga mats need some TLC since I don’t wash them as often in the winter because I like them to air dry in the warm sun… which is most definitely lacking this bitter cold winter. Thank you thank you thank you!!!

    This is such a great idea! I always eye the sprays at yoga studios too and I always think that I should get one for my mat. Thank you for this! Visiting from #SITSSharefest!

    I had no idea yoga mat spray existed! What a fantastic idea. I’m always trying to keep my toddler’s little hands off my yoga mat (to no avail) because I’m creeped out by the fungus and sweat that have probably accumulated on it over the years. I love making diy cleaners too and am definitely pinning this. Great idea! Your blog header and design is so pretty. I’m glad I found you from SitsGirls today.

    I’ve been recently thinking about getting back into yoga, so this will really come in handy! I had heard of sprays for yoga mats, but none with pretty scents like lavender, which I love. Can’t wait to try this out!

    I love this idea! Lavender is one of my favourite scents, and I can see myself using it in all sorts of areas of the house. Love the little “photo-bomber” too! :)
