What is aromatherapy and is it safe?
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.The inhaled aroma from these "essential" oils is widely believed to stimulate brain function. Essential oils can also be absorbed through the skin where they travel through the bloodstream and can promote whole-body healing.A form of alternative medicine, aromatherapy is gaining momentum. It is used for a variety of applications, including pain relief, mood enhancement and increased cognitive function.As Holistic Health News reports, 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 perfume, 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.

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 amount of time spent outdoors. Cats too may need an occasional grooming if they get especially dirty.
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; with temperature change your candle may appear to pull away from the sides of the glass. These physical variations do not impact performance. Light and enjoy!
