Natural Cleaning with Essential Oils

An Effective Yoga Mat Cleaner?

My first (FINALLY!!!!) foray into recipe making with essential oils. I wanted an all purpose cleaner but I’ll but using it primarily for freshening up that occasionally stinky and dirty yoga mat o’mine. I found a simple recipe to follow in this book; just 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar and 1/2 cup water and 20 drops essential oils. I wasn’t sure what oils paired well or which ones I even wanted to use so I ended up making 3 different recipes. I also didn’t have a larger spray bottle, just these small 2 something ounce ones so it made sense to split it up and try a couple different scent combos. I’m not sure how much oil I ended up adding from each because it got to the point I was really just trying to knock out the vinegar scent. Vinegar scent = big thumbs down from me. Let me tell you though, that orange peppermint one?…. smells amazing! The lemongrass one also smells quite nice. Anyway, I dig what I’ve done but I want to really figure out what ones work best together and what each is best at disinfecting, what are the best, most effective cleaning recipes and whatnot. So work to be done, but fun fun good smelling things are starting to happen.
