Candle Scents

A personal choice for you, but your pets may pay the price

Candle scents have been around for years and they have come a long way. However, what is not so known is the potential danger that fragrances can have on some pets. Just Googling “Candle Scents and Pets” brings up hundreds of results.

 

So, you just spent hours sniffing candle jars. You like this one scent, but the candle is boring, or the color is wrong or perhaps it is just too expensive! Maybe you want to give a candle as a gift, and you think “Who doesn’t like Cinnamon?” Did you know that cinnamon candle scents can be harmful to dogs? And Cats can be affected by Eucalyptus. Not to mention birds, they are susceptible to almost everything.

Burning scented candles and even putting scents into diffusers can create airborne scents and chemicals. The use of fragrance blends that are Synthetic may be harmful to a pet’s respiratory system.
