5 sweet-smelling plants that are natural alternatives to air fresheners

Are you looking to refresh the air in your home without using plug-ins? There are some brilliant, sweet-smelling plants that will create a natural, fresh and fragrant smell without the chemicals of air fresheners.

Swapping air fresheners for flowers can not only stop harmful side effects, but plants are known to have positive effects on mental health and can boost your mood.

'The side effects of air fresheners are not well known and can have an extremely negative impact on health,' say the team at Garden Buildings Direct. 'By swapping them with fresh flowers you are reducing the amount of chemicals people in the house are being exposed to, whilst achieving the same end goal.'

From lavender to mint, these are the plant alternatives to consider for your space.
