If you follow me online, you know that right now I’m going through some major home renovations which means toxic particles galore are floating around my nose and home. Because I already have severe allergies and a very sensitive nose, in general, I wanted to make sure that I was eliminating as many harmful pollutants from the house as possible. Besides renovating, the air in our homes, on average can be up to 5 times more polluted than the air outside, according to the Environmental Protection Agency, which means I really wanted something to help offset that. Clean air is also very important for those with small children or new babies as their tiny lungs are more susceptible to the effects of pollutants in the air. After hours of researching the different air filters and natural air purifying devices online, I decided on two that I wanted to share with you all today!
Dyson Pure Hot + Cool Link-
Probably my most favorite device ever, this Dyson Hot + Cool Link automatically purifies the air, removing 99.97% of allergens, pollutants, and gasses from the air, as small as 0.3 microns that it traps inside! Besides being an awesome air purifying device, this is also a super powerful heater and cooling device! I must admit, I was a bit skeptical on this working before getting it, however, after painting and sanding my home and watching it detect the toxins released during the process, I am forever a believer! Because this device pairs up to your smartphone, you can watch the quality of your air, right before your very eyes. After installing the app and pairing it with my machine, I let it get straight to work. My air started out GOOD, but as soon as the painters began sanding off old paint and repainting, the app instantly detected the toxic particles and began sucking them up and filtering them out. I would say it took about 4 hours to clean the air out and get my rating back to GOOD but I mean, how cool is that? To know that it detected the problem and then fixed it? Amazing.

You really can feel a difference in the air before and after the Dyson cleans it up and overall, I am very happy with this product and after testing it out for over a month now, would strongly suggest this to anyone in need of an affordable home purifier. Most filters I found were over $1,000 and this runs at just $599.
Besides just detecting the paint particles, the Dyson air purifier also detects-
- Nitrogen Dioxide
- Ultra-fine Particles
- Pet Dander + Allergens
Himalayan Salt Lamps-
If you have ever visited the air around a powerful waterfall or near the ocean’s crashing waves, we can all probably agree the air around these natural locations always seems to be super crisp, clean and pure. This is a great example of the quality of air around something producing negative irons. Because we can’t really get a waterfall into our home, I settled for the next best thing, a negative ion producing Himalayan Salt Lamp. Besides creating more pure and refreshing air in the home, these lamps also have been known to help offset the frequency vibrations our gadgets like cell phones, computers, TVs, etc…
Because the lamps are smaller in comparison to your home, you can plan on needing a few of the larger ones to really even make a difference. I purchased two off Amazon that were the largest size available measuring over 12 inches. You also want to ensure you are buying a 100% form of Himalayan Salt Crystals as there are many fakes out there. The ones I purchased can be found on Amazon here.
So, there you have it! Two amazing devices you can look into on your quest for cleaner air!
