Mmmm, eucalyptus! Words that come to mind to describe the scent and its effects: cooling, refreshing and energizing. As a stimulant it is great first thing in the morning to get you going, both physically and mentally. As a disinfectant, I like to clean my yoga mat with it. And paired with Lavender it makes a killer travel set of essential oils: one to help you relax and sleep, the other to energize you and sanitize on the go.
I love this recipe from Yoga by Adrienne for a yoga mat spray. I just made a fresh bottle, it’s what I keep on hand to spray down our mats after weekend yoga!
- 6 ounces of witch hazel
- 10 drops of lavender
- 10 drops of eucalyptus
Add to spray bottle, shake to mix, spray away!
And I’m already planning playlists and sequencing for next weekend and am going to use Eucalyptus for the savasana cooling towels, get ready to feel refreshed!
