Most pet lovers keep their pets indoors, where they can cuddle and play with them and keep a watchful eye. As much as you love having your pet around, its daily presence and habits produce unpleasant smells that linger on almost every surface in your home.

Your odour-eliminating candle options are seemingly unlimited. We’ve listed some important considerations to help you decide which candles will benefit you and your pets.
A: Not all scented candles have odour-eliminating capabilities. Some candles use traditional fragrances that mask unwanted odours by overpowering them. Sometimes that works, and other times, the scents merge to create an equally unpleasant or worse odour. Then some candles have proper odour-eliminating technology. When burnt, they release odour-neutralising enzymes that attack and break down the pungent smell on a molecular level, reducing or removing the scent and replacing it with a much more appealing aroma. If you have a specific odour you need to remove, find a candle designed to eliminate it.
A: Before burning any candles, ensure that your pet has no respiratory issues. Signs and symptoms include laboured or rapid breathing, sneezing, coughing, or a runny nose. Once your pet is not at risk, weigh the differences between paraffin wax and vegetable/plant-based wax. Burning paraffin wax releases chemicals that can harm both pets and humans. However, the dosage is usually tiny, so people continue to use them. To be safe, you can opt for vegetable/plant-based wax instead. Place your candle away from pets and small children to avoid burns.
