So…what makes a pet friendly/dog friendly candle or wax melt? The majority of candles on the high street are created with paraffin wax, a derivative of petroleum which releases nasty toxins when burnt such as toluene, benzene, acetaldehyde, formaldehyde and acrolein, which should be avoided for humans, and most certainly our beloved dogs. Many also have lead wicks which when burnt, can emit potentially harmful substances, which if inhaled by your pet can cause sickness, dizziness and possibly seizures. The majority of candles on the high street include synthetic colours and fragrances which can cause allergy symptoms.
