Frequently Asked Questions

What is aromatherapy and is it safe?

A form of alternative medicine, aromatherapy is used for a variety of applications, including pain relief, mood enhancement, and increased cognitive function. According to, aromatherapy is the practice of using the natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, stems, leaves, roots, or other parts of a plant to enhance psychological and physical well-being. Inhaling the aroma from these "essential" oils is widely believed to stimulate brain function. You can also absorb essential oils through your skin where they travel through the bloodstream and can promote whole-body healing.

Holistic Health News reports that pets can enjoy the therapeutic effects of aromatherapy as much as humans can. Aside from possibly eliminating bad odors and giving your pet a pleasant scent, essential oils also serve many practical functions such as boosting your pet's immune system, fighting off bacteria and viruses, preventing the growth of yeasts and molds, and repelling insects.

Is aromatherapy safe for pets?

Yes, aromatherapy is safe for pets. Our products use human-grade essential oils sourced in the U.S. that are safe for you and your pets.

Is your candle wick lead-free?

Yes, the wicks in our candles are completely lead-free. All our pet odor eliminator candles have cotton wicks.

What's the burn time of the candles?

The candles will burn for 40 hours.

How often can you use the candles?

Our candles are safe to burn daily.

My candle appears to be frosting or pulling away from the glass. Is this normal?

"Frosting" is a natural property of soy wax, not an imperfection. Soy wax is sensitive to temperature changes. When the temperature changes, your candle may appear to pull away from the sides of the glass. These physical variations do not impact performance. Light and enjoy!

Do the products eliminate pet odors, or do they just mask the smells?

Our pet odor eliminator products are designed to remove odors from your home. Our aromatherapy candles cleanse the air. While our bottled, like our stain and odor spray, eliminate odors at the source with their antiseptic properties.

What are parabens and do your products contain them?

For the safety of your pet and you, we do not use parabens as preservatives in our products. According to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, parabens are the most widely used preservatives in cosmetic products. Preservatives may be used in cosmetics to protect them against microbial growth, both to protect consumers and to maintain product integrity.

How often should I bathe my pet?

It is best to speak with your veterinarian about the specific bathing needs of your pet. The ASPCA recommends that dogs be bathed at least once every three months, depending upon the amount of time spent outdoors. Cats may also need occasional grooming if they get especially dirty.
