A Common Concern for Pet Owners
Are the fragrances from wax melts safe for our dogs? At CharlartsCrafts, we prioritize creating products that are not only eco-friendly but also dog-friendly, ensuring a safe home environment for everyone.
Understanding the Risks: What Makes Wax Melts Dangerous for Dogs?
Common wax melts, though delightful in scent, can hide potential risks for dogs. These include:
Toxic Ingredients in Standard Wax Melts
- Harmful Chemicals: Certain chemicals used for fragrance or color can be toxic.
- Dangerous Essential Oils: Some oils, like eucalyptus or ylang-ylang, are hazardous for dogs.
- Lead in Wicks: Some older or low-quality melts may contain lead wicks, posing a risk to pets.
Recognizing Symptoms of Toxicity
- Physical and Behavioral Signs: Look for coughing, sneezing, lethargy, or changes in behavior as signs of irritation or toxicity.
If you notice any of these signs with your wax melts, stop using them as they are likely causing irritation to your dogs sensitive nose.
How do I know which are safe and which are toxic to dogs?
Be very careful with any wax melts that are described as using "essential oils", this means they are using natural extracts. Some natural extracts such as Lavender, ylang-ylang and many others are dangerous.
However if the wax melts are made from synthetics then even scents such as Lavender are completely fine, as these scents have been designed specifically to smell like Lavender.
At CharlartsCrafts all of our wax melts are completely safe for dogs.
