Air is rather important. We cannot live more than a few minutes without air. But not just any air. We need healthy air for our vitality.
Air carries moisture, electrical charges, heat, and gases - mostly nitrogen and oxygen, which means that air quality is related to humidity, electrical charge, temperature, and proper balance of natural gasses.
Our second skin is our clothes and our third skin is the indoor climate of our buildings. Unfortunately, our fashionable clothing and our modern homes contain many toxic materials which off-gas dangerous chemicals. Then, we breathe these toxins in with every breath.
Many of these chemicals cause a variety of symptoms including headache, fatigue, short-term memory loss, nervous system problems, respiratory issues, depression, anxiety, and more. Also, many of these toxins are carcinogenic.

And here are some more involved, but important, tasks:

Creating healthy air will help your health!
