Because the standard air freshener can contain hazardous chemicals that can be inhaled or absorbed through our skin, using an organic plug in air freshener is your only alternative to chemicals such as phthalates, propellants, formaldehyde, benzenes, solvents, and synthetic musks to name a few.
Fortunately, several manufacturers offer a natural alternative to the dangers of the standard air freshener for the green consumer.
And this one is my personal favorite: Scent Fill Air Wick® Warmer
The benefits of an organic plug in air freshener
- Clean, healthy fragrance free of harsh chemicals
- Enhance cognitive function
- Aromatherapy for multiple mood enhancements
- Improve sleep, reduce stress
- Traditional scents for holidays
- Mint scents to deters pests, including insects and rodents
Family-safe organic plug in air freshner
Here are the 6 best organic plug in air fresheners
- World’s First Water-less Plugin
- 100% Pure & Natural
- Essential Oil Diffuser
- Aromatherapy Air Freshener
GuruNarda, a waterless diffuser. this aromatherapy air freshener can plug in to a USB or an outlet. After removing the dripper from the GuruNanda essential oil (not included) and screwing it into the diffuser, just plug it in and press power. The diffuser will release diffused natural oil every 10 minutes, and if you use organic oil, you’ll have an organic plug in air freshener.
With mixed reviews, it seems the manufacturer produces an inconsistent product. While some customers like the product, others complain the plugin didn’t work from the start or stopped working shortly after plugging in. Read more reviews

The Aura Cacia simply diffuses drops of essential oil on its pad. When you slide the pad under the grate, the Aura Cacia’s fan blows the diffused oil throughout the room. Start with 5-15 drops of essential oil and add drops as needed. Depending on your choice of essential oil, the Aura Cacia can be an organic plug in air freshener.
Customer reviews are mixed for the Aura Cacia. While many customers complained that the scent doesn’t last long enough or doesn’t spread throughout the room’s space, other customers were satisfied with the product and even purchased multiple diffusers. Read more reviews

Which one to choose?
For the eco-friendly consumer interested in an organic plug in air freshener, I would recommend the Scent Fill Air Wick® Warmer. Not only did this product receive the most positive and the most consistent reviews, but you can also buy other Scent Fill scents, which are also 100% natural. Plus, the Scent Fill is the only true plug in from the list with a bottle attachment.
