For people that know me, they will know that I love scented candles. I love the home smelling divine and like to have scents that are seasonal too. A lot of scented candles are made using paraffin wax, though. Paraffin is a by-product from oil refining so it leads to toxic fumes. So introducing soy wax melts from The Blue Dog Company.
Soy wax is much better for us and for the environment, so you can have a gorgeous scented house, without causing harm. It is also renewable and biodegradable – much more natural than a lot of scented candles that are out there.
At the moment there are 12 scents to choose from in their shop. I chose to try out:
- Sherbet Lemon
They are so easy to use and smell so, so good! I couldn’t stop sniffing them as I got them out of the packet. The lemon and orange were a bit stronger than the other two when they were by themselves. When melted, though, they really came into their own! I was happy with all of the choices I made but think ‘Ginger Spice’ would be great for autumn / winter and ‘Fresh Linen’ would be great for spring.
When you put them in a warmer, you think they will take a long time to melt (c’mon, its a tiny tea light candle underneath) but it doesn’t take long to warm up and start to melt – literally minutes!
I would recommend these completely. Good for you and smell divine! Each melt is priced at £1.19 which I think is totally reasonable and competitive with other melts on the market.

Possibly the most ignored and understated tip is your pet may need sunscreen just as much as you! Most light haired pets and those with very short haircuts need skin protection against the suns harmful rays. Human labeled sunscreen may not be right for your pet.dog niche with breeds
