a Giveaway: My Favorite Yoga items – peace. love. quinoa

May 21


What does your yoga mat smell like?

Despite doing a ton of yoga lately, my yoga mat has an uplifting scent from the pure essential oils in the Yoga Mat Cleanse I use after every session. (BRAGGING) In addition to the pure essential oils (including Eucalyptus, Spearmint, Lavender, Tea Tree oil, Lime, Bergamot, and Grapefruit) used in this yoga mat cleanser, is witch hazel and hydrogen peroxide – all natural, and I love it.

I originally found this cleanser/disinfectant on Etsy when looking for a Christmas gift. I purchased one bottle as a gift and then a bottle for myself (that’s how I shop… duh) then later discovered Holistic Science’s website when re-purchasing. I knew my yoga mat needed to be cleaned regularly because I do hot yoga and sweat a LOT but I didn’t realize how nasty and infectious yoga studios and yoga mats could get. Holistic Science’s website lists out all of the nasty things that can happen when you don’t clean your yoga mat – I dare you to check it out.

Anyway, at the end of each yoga class, I’m typically the ONLY person cleaning my yoga mat – everyone else rolls up the sweat and stink in their mats. I don’t want to know whether or not they clean their mats when they get home – the answer is probably no. Luckily, Holistic Science’s Yoga Mat Cleanse is safe for every day use and won’t alter or damage the non-stick surface of your mat.

Currently, I’m in the middle of doing a 30/40 challenge at CorePower Yoga – basically, it’s 30 classes in 40 days. The challenge is coming to an end and I’m right on track to get my 30 classes in before the celebration class on the 26th – the celebration class that will include a live DJ AND an ice cream truck.

2 Reasons I decided to do a giveaway:

1. To celebrate the fact that I’m actually going to do 30 yoga classes in 40 days.

2. I’m obsessed with the two products I’m giving away – daily, I rely on them and I love to introduce my loves to others.

Included in the giveaway is a Manduka eQua Hand Towel. I own more Manduka Hand Towels than there are days of the week (I told you, I rely on them daily) and I color coordinate them with my Lululemon outfits. I use a small towel during yoga instead of the mat-length towels – I like to feel the squishy, grippy mat beneath my toes – we become one during practice. If I get too sweaty and slippery, then I’ll use the towel under my hands, but I try to refrain from messing with it. 

The towel is great for wiping sweat and wiping down the yoga mat after spraying it with the Yoga Mat Cleanse.
