I love adding a special touch to my yoga classes by providing my students with cool essential oil washcloths to lay over their eyes during savasana. While many different essential oil blends work, I prefer lavender, due to it’s relaxing properties.

What You’ll Need To Make 24 Washcloths


OXO Good Grips 2.5 Qt Glass Bowl



Lavender Essential Oil

Freezable Lunch Bag





Step 1

Fill the bowl to the halfway point with water.

Add a few drops of essential oil to the bowl & gently stir.

Submerge each cloth into the bowl until it is completely damp.



Step 2

Remove the wet towels from the bowl, one at a time.

Fold each cloth in half once then roll it up, as shown.



Step 3

Repeat this process.



Step 4

Carefully stack the washcloths into a neat pile.

Store overnight in the freezer, or in the refrigerator to make cool compresses.

Transport using a freezer lunch pack if you will not be using them at home. I bring them to yoga class for my students.
