The Homedics brethe air revitalizer is designed to be used with one of Homedics' specially formulated brethe botanical solutions. This refill solution emulsifies when added into the water of the brethe air revitalizer, naturally killing up to 99 percent of odor causing bacteria. The active ingredients in brethe botanical solution are derived from 100 percent natural botanical extracts with Calming Lavender Scent. It is environmentally safe, non-toxic, non-pollutant, non-flammable, biodegradable and alcohol-free. This botanical solution is safe for all rooms in the home or office, and is not harmful to your beloved pets. While the wonderful calming lavender fragrance will last up to six hours, the deodorizing, anti-bacterial, and anti-fungal properties will continue for up to 24 hours! As long as the brethe air revitalizer is running, the ?rainforest? washing effect continues.

Other fragrances work & smell better! I liked my Homedics Breathe, but I was turned off by the fragrances that came with the unit. Having spent a lot of $$$ in humidifiers/ozone/air purifiers & co., I decided to test the use of this relatively inexpensive machine, using a different fragrance (even if the instructions specifically forbid this). Worst case scenario, I figured, I've thrown $50 down the drain (surely not for the last time!)
I found that you can pour in just a teaspoon or so of Mrs. Meyer's Ironing spray (love their smells), fill the tank up with water as usual and...
BOOM! Just kidding...
My Homedics has worked just fine for a month, now. A full size bottle of Mrs. Meyer's ironing spray is way cheaper than the Homedics refill... and you can't beat the smells of geranium, basil, lavender or lemon verbena. Try it yourself, but I warn you... I said to use the ironing spray which is a liquid, non-foaming solution. Other products, especially essential oils won't work or may clog your machine.
Once you try this, you'll be excited at the prospect of using the Homedics without being hooked to the purchase of so-so fragrances that are way too expensive, and not that enjoyable (according to my husband's nose!)
There, problem solved, my husband's nose is now finally satisfied!
Great Stuff I've had the Brethe Air system for several months now. Talk about effective it really works. I was happy to see larger refills available for it, especially lavender (I know it is calming for children). I was even happy that this size has a solution saving lid....more info
