Incense ~ We have produced a more detailed article to cover these products “Is Incense bad for our pets?”
Scented Candles ~ Many people will burn Scented Candles to help "set the mood," especially around the Festive Holidays. Unfortunately, like all candles, even the Scented varieties can pose a burn risk for your pets and a fire risk for your home and family. Candles don't need to be banished from your home as long as they contain Natural ingredients but it's certainly a good idea to Never Leave A Lit Candle and your pets alone together in the same room. Consider using Flameless Candles, which will also eliminate the Candle Smoke that can irritate a Cat or Dog's Respiratory system, leading to worsening of any existing Asthma, Bronchitis, Tracheal (windpipe) problems, or other conditions of their Respiratory system.
FACT: Paraffin Wax used to be Petrochemicals from the Crude Oil production process!!
Air Fresheners including Aerosol, Pump Spray and plug-ins ~
Though they may help your home smell good, Room Sprays and Deodorizers can also trigger an Asthma or Coughing Attack in certain Pets. Read the ingredients on products before you buy them, if there are Chemicals or items you are not sure of, think is it worth the risk to the health of your Pet!! There are Natural Alternatives – see our “Home Remedies” article.
Other products which we use to provide a Scent or Aroma to our Environment are endless from Cleaning Products to Personal Hygiene items, if we simply try to replace our Chemical Based, Toxic and Synthetic Fragrant Products with Natural, Pure and Organic based not only would we improve Our Health but that of Our Pets as well as Our World in which we live.
At Scented and more, we are committed to offer only the best Natural and Pure Merchandise in the form of Incense, Oils, Perfumes or Waxes and we endeavour to provide Detailed, Accurate and Informative Articles to help others who may wish to Use Less Harmful Alternative Products in the future for themselves and their furry, feathered friends.
