One Step Closer to Chemical Free Fragrance in the Home

Beauty Brite Disclosure

It seems that everywhere we look, popular brands are using fewer chemicals when it comes to the makeup of their products, especially when it comes to the fragrance products we use in our homes. This is a huge step compared to years ago when the chemical makeup of a product was irrelevant to the vast population. Majority of people were clueless as to how dangerous these chemicals could be for our bodies as well as the ecosystem. I have to admit I was one of those people. However, I am also a firm believer that if one knows better, they tend to do better. The problem for me is that I really enjoy some of the artificial fragrances you can find in today’s market. Below are a few products I have found that can help start the baby step process of having less chemical filled fragrance products in your home.

Febreze ONE

I don’t know about you, but the very first thing I notice when I walk into a home is the smell. When I walk in the door, I expect a “clean” refreshing smell. It’s as though the home is “dirty” to me if it doesn’t smell good.

Febreze has recently introduced a new line of lightly scented fragrances with their Febreze ONE Collection.

Febreze ONE is available in three fragrances:

The difference between regular Febreze spray and Febreze ONE is that Febreze ONE is made with no aerosol, no heavy perfumes, and no dyes!

I have 2 kids who are extremely sensitive to strong fragrances so I always have to use caution with what I spray to freshen up the room when they are around. Febreze ONE doesn’t leave them in a sneezing fit AND it allows me to freshen up the room, which is a huge win in my book.

You can find Febreze ONE at Target, Walmart, Amazon, and other local retailers.

Downy Nature Blends


Next in line is Downy‘s new Nature Blends Fabric Softeners. WOAH! Like WOAH! I am seriously head over heels in love with these new fabric softeners.

Downy’s Nature Blends fabric softeners come in the scent of Honey Lavender and Rosewater and Aloe. Both of these fragrances are very tolerable because they aren’t very harsh or overpowering, which again is great with my children who are sensitive to fragrances. I really like that the honey lavender is the perfect scent to clean bedding with so that when you lay down and snuggle up to your blankets, you can inhale this scent and sort of wind down, peacefully into a deep sleep. Downy’s Nature Blends Rosewater and Aloe have the perfect light scent for everyday clothing and honestly, it is a scent that I would pair right up with “new baby smell”. Newborn babies just have this certain sweet scent about them and Downy’s Rosewater and Aloe is one I would love to pair right up with that newborn scent. With the added coconut oil, I can say that my own eczema king (my 10-month-old) had zero flare-ups from which was quite the shocker!

According to Downy, Downy Nature Blends are

  • 70% plant-based as certified by the USDA BioPreferred program.
  • Made with a touch of coconut oil.
  • Made using 100% renewable wind power electricity at a zero manufacturing waste to landfill production facility.


You can find Downy Nature Blends at Target, Walmart, Amazon, and other local retailers.


Air Freshener? Check. Fabric Softener? Check. Hand and body fragrance? Next, please!


Softsoap Earth Blends


According to Softsoap, “Softsoap Earth Blends is a paraben free and dye free moisturizing line made from biodegradable cleaning ingredients.”.

I have to agree on the moisturizing aspect! Most body washes and hand soaps leave my skin feeling dry and scaley. This has not happened with Softsoap Earth Blends and I have been using their body wash/hand soap for a little over a week now. Plenty of time for the dry skin to show up!

Softsoap Earth Blends body wash and hand soap come in the following fragrances:

My favorite fragrance from Soft Soap Earth Blends was the Pomegranate and Plum, but the Coconut and Fig is a perfect summer scent.

You can find Soft Soap Earth Blend body washes and hand soaps at Walmart.

Saje Aromaon Deluxe Diffuser

My final recommendation is actually 100% natural and not at all chemical based. Saje Aromaom Deluxe Diffuser is available in 3 colors (white, black, and stone) and is an ultrasonic diffuser for essential oils. This diffuser can also be used as a humidifier. The mist setting on low can last up to 22 hours while high can last up to 11 hours. It also has an LED Light which can you choose to let alternate between colors, to stay on one color, or to have no light on at all.

I have to admit that I am probably one of the few people left that haven’t jumped on the essential oil bandwagon. I want to BUT I just don’t know where to start or even which products to use. Saje provides 100% natural oils to use in the home. What better fragrance for the home than a 100% natural one?

The Saje Aromaom Deluxe Diffuser covers 1200 sq ft which makes it a great fit for the downstairs section of my home. The set up was pretty straightforward and easy to follow. 10-15 drops of Saje’s Tranquility blend and my children are propped up on the couch calm/relaxed and watching Elena of Avalor Realms of the Jaquins. If that doesn’t speak for itself, then nothing will.

Saje Tranquility essential oil blend actually reminds me of Earl Grey tea which is my absolute favorite tea!

You can find Saje products through Saje’s website, Saje Store Locations, and Amazon.

These are just a few brands that I know I use in my everyday life but now I can use these products while obtaining a cleaner fragrance in my home which is really what the end goal is for me. A fresh, clean smelling home (whether it be the actual air, the bodies walking around in my home, or the clothing being worn) that has fewer chemicals is truly what matters to me.

What are your favorite products that provide fragrance in your home with fewer chemicals?
