This all-natural and herbal gym bag spray tackles odours and keeps gear nice and fresh.

It makes the perfect Father’s Day gift for a workout-loving dad.


1 cup water

1 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt

15 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil

5 drops Peppermint Essential Oil


  1. Mix all of the ingredients together in a reusable spray bottle, ensuring that the salt dissolves.
  2. Shake before each use.
  3. Keep it in a gym bag and spritz as needed.
  4. Bonus tip: the sore-muscle relief from After Oil makes it another great gym buddy.

Your dad can thank you later (and your mom probably will, too).
