The Yogini from Manila

All-natural antibacterial sport sprays


I was at EchoStore Serendra yesterday and spotted the last bottle of this.

Working out in a gym or in a yoga studio, you really don’t know what bacteria lie around. People come and go, step all over the floors, dump their clothes in the lockers and sweat a lot. At my gym, I do see someone going around the machines every now and then with a sprayer to mop down handles and places where the body comes in contact with the machine.

It helps to have an antibacterial spray you can drop into your yoga bag for use anywhere in the gym or yoga studio, including your mat, right before practice. This is a great idea for those days when you have no time to wash your mat or the weather outside is muggy and not conducive to yoga mat cleaning. It’s probably a good idea too to spray the insides of lockers before putting your stuff in.

The label of this one from Island Basics says its ingredients include bioenzymes (looks like these are the ones that eat up the bacteria), tea tree oil (a disinfectant) and peppermint essential oil (for the fragrance). Nothing more. 100% ALL NATURAL!

Sport Spray from Island Basics retails at PhP 160 for a 100ml bottle.

Next time, I will try Messy Bessy‘s version called Sports Spritzer which sells for PhP 130 for a 250ml bottle. They ran out when I was looking for this at EchoStore. Fortunately, MessyBessy people just told me via their Facebook page that they are at Mercato Centrale, Bonifacio Global City every Saturday-Sunday from 7AM-2PM.


Messy Bessy’s ingredients are different from Island Basics. Theirs consist of sugarcane alcohol, lactic acid, sodium lactate, herbal waters, deionized water and naturally-derived scent.

Have you tried any of these two sprays? I’d love it if you could drop me a line here if you have.

  1. The Messy Bessy Sports Spray is excellent. I use it when I want our sheets and linens to smell fresh before jumping into bed!

    • Oh, how great that you’ve tried it already, Martine! Thanks for that positive feedback. I’m going to Market! Market! this weekend, I think. I hope I can get that Messy Bessy Sports Spray from their stall there.

Thanks for reading! I'd love to know what you think.
