Ah, aromatherapy candles. The sight, the smells, the ahhhhs. Bliss. Relaxation. Calm and tranquility. As a responsible dog owner, why wouldn’t you want to share some of the soothing senses of scents of aromatherapy candles with your precious pooch?
Here’s the scoop – aromatherapy typically uses products from nature without artificial chemicals. While the ultimate goal is to create a calming effect through our sense of smell, canines in particular have incredible sense of smell. It’s no surprise that aromatherapy candles and aromatherapy products in general work wonderfully well with your dog to reduce anxiety and contribute to an overall sense of well-being.
For instance, aromatherapy candles contain essential oils which are known to have certain restorative abilities. The oils, derived from leaves, flowers, wood and other natural sources, burn to emit various soothing scents such as vanilla or lavender.
While you’re focused on creating the consummate relaxing environment for your pet, the purpose is two-fold: you will reap the benefits as well from the aromatherapy candles. After all, the effects of calmness and tranquility parlay to anyone in the vicinity of these aromatherapy candles. They’re so potent in particular for dogs due to their keen sense of smell but overall, aromatherapy candles contribute to a positive impact in one’s environment.
And while you may have your own favorite scent, your dog may have his own, too. If you have more than one dog, they may each have their own scents, and so on. It’s important when exploring new products, such as aromatherapy candles for your dog, to see what works and what doesn’t.
In fact, aromatherapy candles make a great his and her or his and his or her and her (you get the idea) gift for a friend and their pet. Some aromatherapy candles are sold as sets accompanied with other relaxing aromatherapy products, whether it’s aromatherapy spritz or oils, with the same goal: to create a calming effect through the scent.
For the hyper doggie, try a specific aromatherapy candle which mixes a powerful blend of marjoram, lavender & chamomile to quiet nervousness. Yet another advantage of small “scent”-illizing treats via aromatherapy candles for your dog? They’re relatively inexpensive and you can purchase them in different sizes to vary the scent you would like emitted (click here to see what The Dog Bowl has to offer).
Some safety tips to keep in mind, after all they’re aromatherapy candles, but candles nonetheless! Keep out of reach of children, and especially out of reach of your dog. Some of the best places to keep your aromatherapy candle includes the kitchen or family/living room on a table perched out of reach where it can’t easily be knocked over. And definitely remember to blow out your aromatherapy candles prior to going to sleep at night or leaving the house.
