Feel like you’re breathing in stale, stagnant air every time you take a breath inside your home? You’re not alone. Thousands of Americans suffer from respiratory problems and dirty indoor air can be making your symptoms worse. Try these natural ways to purify your home – you’ll feel better both physically and mentally.
Cleaning and/or replacing the air filters in your home’s heating and cooling equipment is the number one way to combat airborne pollutants. HEPA filters can remove 99.97% of particles with a size of 0.3 microns.
Burning candles made from paraffin wax? Blow them out immediately and toss them in the trash. Paraffin wax releases petroleum into the air which can make you sick. Instead, opt for beeswax candles – they can ionize air to neutralize toxic compounds.
Did you know that Himalayan pink sea salt is another natural ionic air purifier? Add a salt lamp to any room of your home for functionality and decoration.
