Aromatherapy promotes a feeling of calm and helps dogs relax. Aromatherapy can also help prevent or improve health issues, particularly with keeping a dog’s liver, immune system, or digestive tract healthy.
Burning standard wax melts or scented candles can be harmful to our dogs.
Most of scented candles and wax melts sold in shops contain ingredients such as paraffin, benzene, artificial scents and more, that will have a detrimental effect on our dogs’ health, and can cause damage to their central nervous system and can trigger respiratory problems, as well as damage kidneys and liver.
What is even more shocking is that also products which are advertised as pet deodorisers, designed to mask unwanted dog odour, can contain these dangerous ingredients.
But fear not, these Wax Melts are 100% safe, organic and made with a healing aromatherapy power in mind.
Essential oils should not be overused – 1 drop of chamomile essential oil has the same power of 50 chamomile teas!
Dogs have more than 100 million sensory receptor sites in the nasal cavity as compared to 6 million in people, and the area of the canine brain devoted to analysing odours is about 40 times larger than the comparable part of the human brain, moreover, body and organs scale between humans and dogs should be taken into consideration.
For these reasons, the amount of essential oils we would use for our pleasure is way too much for a dog.
Many candles or wax melts even though made for dogs, contain too much scent, mostly to please humans, but that can lead to toxicity and danger for the dog’s health.
