Caldrea Essential Collection Review

Mother’s Day always seems to sneak up on me every year. After the hustle and bustle of quite a few birthdays in April in my family it seems like Mother’s Day sometimes is an afterthought. I always try my best to get my mother something nice, and my husband does the same for me on behalf of the kids, so I thought I would help everyone out this year by introducing you to the the perfect Mother’s Day Collection of products from Caldrea Essential Collection.

Caldrea Review

I received a Mother’s Day Collection in Blackcurrant Mint from Caldrea for review. The set includes a fragrant hand soap, hand lotion and signature candle. The Blackcurrant Mint scent is fresh and clean, and I think a very fitting fragrance for spring and summer. The candle is very pretty and emits the blackcurrant scent even when not lit, so it’s great as an air freshener on its own. I have it sitting in my guest bathroom along with the soap, both of them pretty and fragrant. Not only do I like the scent of these products, but I like what I’ve read about them – no harsh chemicals, no harsh fragrances, no ammonia, chlorine bleach, phosphates, formaldehyde, parabens, or petroleum distillates. Available exclusively at Target and, the Caldrea line is meant to be a fresh modern approach to home ambiance. They would make a great gift for any woman in your life who you want to pamper. The hand soap and hand lotion both retail for $7.99 while the signature candle sells for $14.99.


The Caldrea Company is made up of a team of self-described “earth-loving scientists” who are committed and passionate home keepers. Their goal is finding and using the finest plant-derived ingredients and essential oils to provide optimal natural freshness, fragrance and potency. All their liquid products are biodegradable and none of them contain the chemicals I listed above.
