ARE WAX MELTS SAFE AROUND PETS?

The main advantage of wax melts is they are proven to give your home a fresh scent and mask pet odours.

People ask if wax melts and candles can be used around Cats / Dogs, birds and other smaller animals, use your home fragrance products in an area that’s a safe distance way, each animal may smell the scent at a different level so this is down to preference! But animals are unique just like us, always consult a VET if ever unsure.

This is why CLP is important, so if any animal etc as a reaction the CLP and safety data sheet can tell you whats inside that fragrance. 

The same ingredients or other ingredients might be toxic to aquatic environment what this means is, dispose of the wax in a safe way, never down a drain, or unsafely dumped.

Ask the same question elsewhere and you may get given the answer of:

“yes absolutely safe – fragrance oils are safe around pets & not made with essential oils which can be toxic”

The right answer is some fragrance oils DO contain essential oils and may cause sensitivities, animals could have a reaction, but consult a VET if you need proper advice, Safety Datasheets / CLPs can be given to you to help with your enquiries.

Always keep warmers away from any animal so their lungs are not engulfed in fragrance – treat animals like you would a newborn baby, you wouldnt want a wax melt burning near a baby would you?
