However, we can still fight the nasty air pollution and breathe better air using these home remedies. But the first thing you need to remember is stay indoors as much as possible and try to avoid going out for a few days.

The following are some of the easy ways that will help purify your indoor air:

1. Beeswax Candles

Beeswax candles are among the oldest candles, and they are an excellent air purifier. Beeswax candles, like air purifiers, emit negative ions that neutralise toxins in the air and make them harmless. Beeswax candles not only improve the air quality in your home, but they also burn slowly, so you won't have to replace them as often. Pure beeswax candles, in fact, produce almost no smoke or odour when burned. 

2. Indoor Plants
