It was later in the evening by the time I got onto my mat today and I could feel my energy running out. Now I chose each practice and what day I wanted to practice it on in advance but but beyond that I didn’t put that much thought into it. I’m ending the week with Yoga with Kassandra, I want one Yoga with Adriene and one Allie the Journal Junkie practice tossed in somewhere and the rest is just what caught my eye/looked best to me/seemed most fun.

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 …
