As a pet owner, it's important to be mindful of the products you use in your home, including candles and wax melts. Soy wax melts and candles are a popular choice for many reasons, and they're also safe for pets. Here are five reasons why soy wax melts and candles are safe for pets.
Soy wax is made from soybeans, which are a natural and renewable resource. Soy wax melts and candles are non-toxic and don't release harmful chemicals into the air. This makes them a safe choice for both you and your pets.
2. No Paraffin
Paraffin is a petroleum byproduct that's often used in traditional candles. When paraffin is burned, it releases harmful chemicals like benzene and toluene into the air. Soy wax melts and candles don't contain paraffin, so they're a safer choice for pets.
3. Lower Temperature
Soy wax melts and candles burn at a lower temperature than traditional paraffin candles. This means that they're less likely to cause burns or accidents if your pet accidentally comes into contact with them.
4. No Soot
Soy wax melts and candles don't produce soot, which is a byproduct of burning traditional paraffin candles. Soot can accumulate on surfaces and potentially harm your pet's respiratory system. Soy wax melts and candles are a cleaner and safer alternative to traditional candles.
5. Natural Fragrances
Soy wax melts and candles often contain natural fragrances like essential oils. These essential oils are used in smaller and more diluted amounts than traditional oil diffusers. Natural fragrances are safer for pets than synthetic fragrances, which can be irritating or harmful to animals. Natural fragrances like lavender, vanilla, and peppermint are not only safe for pets but can also have a calming effect on them.
In conclusion, soy wax melts and candles are a safe choice for pet owners. They're non-toxic, don't contain harmful chemicals like paraffin, burn at a lower temperature, and don't produce soot. They also often contain natural fragrances that are safe and enjoyable for pets. So if you're a pet owner looking for a safe and effective way to create a calming and relaxing atmosphere in your home, consider trying soy wax melts and melts candles.

*Disclaimer: Essential oils are only harmful to cats and dogs if the essential oils are ingested by the animal or if the essential oils are rubbed directly on the skin. The risk is greatest when essential oils are in their purest (liquid) form. Because we use infuse our wax melts with essential oils, the risk is substantially lower for even the latter to occur. So as long as you are using our wax melts for their intended purposes, there are no issues with using our wax melts around cats and dogs. We do not recommend using our wax melts, or any home fragrance products around birds. For more exotic pets, we recommend consulting with your vet first.
