If you own a gym, yoga studio, or Pilates studio, there’s a good chance that you have at least a few yoga mats lying around for your clients to use. Our all-natural and non-toxic Lavender-Infused Pure Eucalyptus Oil Yoga Mat Cleaner is a wonderful solution for thoroughly cleaning your mats but also using a natural option.
But did you know that there are other uses for our Yoga Mat Cleaner? There are! This multi-purpose product can help you get the best bang for your buck and keep the cleaning process simple and streamlined. Below, we’re sharing three ways to use this cleaner in your gym or studio.
Clean your other workout equipment
Just because it says “yoga mat” in the name doesn’t mean that they are the only equipment that can benefit from our all-natural cleaner! Weight machines, free weights, Pilates Reformers, exercise balls, and more can all be cleaned with our Yoga Mat Cleaner.
This product is incredibly effective at removing dirt, bacteria, makeup, sweat, dirt, and oil, all of which can be found on the equipment around your gym before it is cleaned. And because this equipment all comes in direct contact with your clients’ skin for prolonged periods of time, you’re doing them a favor by using an all-natural option!
Clean your locker rooms and other workout areas
There’s no need to reinvent the wheel when it comes to your cleaning products — you can use this cleaner in other areas of your gym or studio as well! One huge perk of using this cleaner for your locker room, for example, is that you can put scent marketing to good use.
Scent marketing, scent branding, and aroma marketing all refer to the sensory marketing that targets the consumer’s sense of smell in order to improve the customer experience, increase sales, develop brand awareness, and nurture brand loyalty and connection. If they walk into your space and associate it with the calming scent of lavender and eucalyptus, you will be improving their client experience immensely!
Clean your saunas and steam rooms
Just like the locker room and workout areas of your gym or studio, your sauna or steam room can benefit from our Yoga Mat Cleaner. Lavender is known to help decrease anxiety, nervousness, and tension, removing restlessness and exhaustion from your guests and giving them a memorable and relaxing experience. If you are using a lavender-infused cleaning product in your sauna or steam room, you are giving your clients the gift of all the benefits that come along with it!

When you walk into your home after being away to college or even just on a vacation, one of the first things that you’ll notice is that comforting scent of home. That smell is made up of a combination of things, for better or for worse — the type of laundry detergent or cleaners that you use, if you have pets, essentials oils that you regularly diffuse, and what you cooked last will all be factors in how your home smells.
Your spa isn’t much different when it comes to scent. But in your spa, you should be using scent marketing to your advantage. Your facility may already smell good, but imagine what the results would be if you were intentional about the scents that you use?
What is scent marketing?
Scent marketing, scent branding, and aroma marketing all refer to the sensory marketing that targets the consumer’s sense of smell in order to improve the customer experience, increase sales, develop brand awareness, and nurture brand loyalty and connection.
Research has shown that scent has the ability to evoke an emotional response and is closely linked with memory, more than any of the other senses. And as many of us know from personal experience, scent can bring us right back to a moment in time, whether positive or negative. Smell is a powerful thing.
Why should you use scent marketing in your spa?
Because of the power that scent holds, you should be using it to your advantage when it comes to your spa. Retailers who use ambient scenting, or diffusing a pleasant aroma in a space, do so in order to influence customer behavior — their intention is to create a pleasant atmosphere with a scent that eventually nudges customers towards a purchase. Data has shown that people stay as much as 44% longer in businesses that smell good.
How can you use scent marketing in your spa?
For steam rooms, we have a total steam room solution with Pure Eucalyptus Oil in commercial sizes, variations, infusions, and custom-blended signature scents as well as our Mystifier Injection System for diffusing our oils into your steam room.

As a spa owner, you are probably bought in on the benefits of steam rooms and saunas like healthier and more radiant skin, improved circulation, relaxation, reduced nerve tension, and more. Why else would you have one, right?
With summer just around the corner, so is the heat, seasonal allergies, and all kinds of activities that have you on the go (sometimes more than when the kids are in school!). There’s no better time to start diffusing eucalyptus in your steam room and sauna to help make your clients’ summer a little bit better.
Here are are a few of the reasons why your spa should diffuse eucalyptus this summer:
It is refreshing and energizing
Summer should be a time of relaxation, right? In theory. In reality, it sometimes seems like we’re making more plans and committing ourselves to more activities instead of taking time to relax. Instead of looking to a shot of espresso for some energy or succumbing to their tiredness and taking a nap, your clients can get a boost by inhaling the benefits of eucalyptus in your steam room or sauna as their afternoon pick-me-up.
It helps with seasonal allergy symptoms
If your clients are feeling sneezy, sniffly, or congested from seasonal allergies, eucalyptus can help with that! Just a few minutes in your steam room or sauna, while eucalyptus is diffusing, can help them breathe easier and feel some relief more quickly.
It can be used for scent marketing
We outlined this in another blog post, but scent marketing can be a game-changer for your business. Scent marketing targets the consumer’s sense of smell in order to improve customer experience, increase sales, develop brand awareness, and nurture brand loyalty and connection. Why not make that happen with a powerful and natural scent like eucalyptus?
It can help keep your spa clean
Beyond just making it smell fantastic, eucalyptus has proven health benefits in wet and humid areas: steam-borne eucalyptus oil wipes out bacteria and microbes before they can get a foothold in a steam room. Mold and mildew become a non-existent worry with a steady diffusion of eucalyptus oil.
If you are ready to utilize the benefits of eucalyptus in your spa, our Mystifier Automatic Injection system will help immensely. This device was developed in response to numerous requests from our customers seeking to eliminate hand spraying. Learn more here.
After you’ve hit the gym and gotten in a really good workout, you probably feel great. Like you’re on top of the world. The endorphins are flowing and you feel energized. But there’s a small thought in the back of your head – this is going to hurt in the morning. You get out your foam roller and go to town, but it only does so much. You still feel sore the next morning.
Instead of always needing to default to over-the-counter pain medications, why not try some natural pain relief? Essential oils and other natural products are a great way to help ease muscle soreness and stiffness. Here are a few of our favorites and how to use them:
These are a game-changer when it comes to muscle pain and soreness, and because their properties are so concentrated, you don’t need much product to make a difference. Here is a simple recipe to make an all-natural muscle salve that you can rub into any sore muscle for pain relief:
2T coconut oil
2T shea butter
4T almond oil
1t menthol crystals
30 drops eucalyptus essential oil
10 drops lavender essential oil
- Measure out the coconut oil, shea butter, and beeswax and melt them on low heat.
- Remove from heat, and stir in the menthol crystals until they’re dissolved. Be sure to keep your face away from the mixture so you don’t irritate your eyes or nose.
- Once the crystals are dissolved, mix in the almond oil, followed by the essential oils.
- Pour the mixture into a container that has a tight lid, but allow the mixture to cool before putting the lid on.
- Store in your refrigerator to maintain texture and shelf life.
Lavender is known and loved for its calming and relaxing properties and it can do the same for your muscles as it does your mind. One effective way of using lavender specifically for sore muscles is to add the essential oil to a carrier oil like fractionated coconut oil and use it as a massage oil. Working the oil deep into your muscles allows those effects to really get where it’s most needed.
Peppermint contains menthol, which brings a much-needed cooling effect when you’re sore. It’s also anti-inflammatory. If you have access to a steam room, bring our Mint-Infused Pure Eucalyptus ShowerMist along with you to get both the benefits of Peppermint and the steam room (read this blog post to read more about the benefits of steam rooms). Simply spritz a few sprays of the ShowerMist away from your face and breathe in and feel the benefits.

Winter is a wonderful time of year. The air feels crisp, the holiday season is around the corner, and (depending on where you live) you might even have a beautiful blanket of snow outside! One downside of the winter season, though, is that cold and flu viruses are being passed around like wildfire. As a spa owner/operator, you can be proactive against these germs by diffusing eucalyptus oil in your steam room or sauna. Not only will the refreshing scent be pleasing to your clients, but they’ll love the benefits too.
Here are just a few reasons why you should diffuse eucalyptus oil in your steam room this winter:
It is antiseptic, antibacterial, and antiviral
Cold and flu season is a great time to diffuse eucalyptus because of its healing properties. In a season where it feels like everyone is sick (or at least has the sniffles), eucalyptus can help prevent sickness as well as help those who have fallen under the weather.
It helps get rid of sinus inflammation
Congestion is a thing of the past when using eucalyptus! Combined with the moisture of the steam room, eucalyptus is a powerhouse when it comes to sinus congestion. It is proven to decongest and reduce inflammation. Try our Menthol-Infused Eucalyptus ShowerMist for a clean, crisp, and minty steam room experience, while also getting all the health benefits.
It is refreshing and energizing
The scent of eucalyptus is variously described as woody-sweet, cooling, refreshing, energizing, fresh, pleasing and revitalizing. In a time of year where many people feel cooped up and tend to have low energy, using a scent that feels refreshing can make your guests feel the same way!
Eucalyptus is a hardworking plant, that’s for certain. We especially love eucalyptus for its natural antibacterial, antiviral, antiseptic, exhilarating, decongestant, and expectorant properties. You can fall in love with eucalyptus, too! Try our aromatherapy diffuser set, our invigorating 100% Pure Eucalyptus Oil ShowerMist, or our 100% pure eucalyptus oil today!
