Your home is your sanctuary. In addition to creating a safe, relaxing atmosphere, it’s important to make sure the air you breathe at home is healthy.

Here are 10 natural ways to clean the air circulating in your home.

  1. Open the windows. If you don’t have allergies, open the windows to remove stale air.
  2. Boil lemon peels as a natural air freshener throughout the home. You can also put those lemon peels in your sink disposal to freshen.
  3. Use oil diffusers. Burn essential oils like lavender, peppermint, or orange to omit a pleasant fragrance throughout your home. Get creative and mix oils.
  4. Beautify and clean the air with houseplants. Several houseplants are known to absorb odors and purify the air. Check out our list of cleansing houseplants here.
  5. Choose beeswax candles, which are non-toxic and safer to burn.

  8. Use your stove hood to direct air out when cooking. This will keep odors, like fish and other foods, to a minimum.
  9. Invest in an air purifier. There are several good air purifiers on the market that reduce allergens in the home and make your air cleaner.
