Did you know that the air inside of your home might actually be up to 100
times more polluted than the air outdoors? Your home should be the place
you feel safest, but if you’re not taking the right steps to purify
the air, you and your loved ones could be breathing in pollutants. Fortunately,
there are lots of quick and easy ways you can purify the air in your home
in a natural way.
Light a Beeswax Candle
Sure, regular candles smell good, but they also release not-so-friendly
chemicals like benzene, toluene soot and more. These chemicals ultimately
contribute to poor indoor air quality. Beeswax candles on the other hand,
release negative ions, which bind with toxins and remove them from the
air. Try swapping your old candles for a beeswax option and breathe easier!
Use Essential Oils
Essential oils are a great way to purify the air in your home the natural
way. Essential oils are a game-changer because they’re extremely
versatile, so there are 1000+ ways you can use them around your home to
purify air. Diffusing an essential oil like citronella, lemongrass, lavender,
rosemary or wild orange will cleanse the air while leaving your home smelling
great in the process. If you don’t have a diffuser, try adding a
few drops of essential oil to a cotton ball and placing it in the room.
Your dryer sheets can be used in more ways than one. If you love the fresh
scent dryer sheets leave on your clothes, try placing a couple of dryer
sheets in the air ducts behind the room registers. As the air passes through
the air ducts, it will blow the fresh scent of the dryer sheets throughout
Vanilla extract or another scented extract of your choice can be used to
eliminate odors and add an inviting scent to your home. All you have to
do is add a few drops of the vanilla extract to your air filter, making
sure not to saturate it. Every time air passes through the filter, it
will carry the warm and comforting smell of vanilla throughout your home.
Change Your Air Filter
Your air conditioning system is your home’s first line of defense against
indoor air pollutants. But, if you’re not regularly changing your
air filter, the quality of the air inside of your home is bound to suffer. Air filters
are responsible for trapping nasty particles before they can make their
way from the ductwork to the rooms in your home. But when your air filter
is left unattended, dander, dirt, dust and the like begin to build up
in it. As a result, it won’t be able to stop all of those gross
pollutants from spreading throughout your home, meaning the quality of
the air inside of your home will suffer.
