The ambience of your home can play a significant role in the comfort and wellbeing of your pet. Beyond the basics of warmth and shelter, the aroma can help to calm and soothe an anxious animal and also freshen the air and remove unwanted odors. Here’s a guide to choosing the right scent for your home and your pet.

Types of diffuser

A diffuser can be something as simple as cotton wool dipped in essential oils, or a battery-powered device that is optimized for an even distribution of fragrance throughout the room. This will provide the most effective release of scent that will last for longer and have the greatest reach. 

There are also multi-functional models available that can either be wall-mounted or stand on a surface such as a desk, and have dual refillable cartridges that allow you to switch between different fragrances. The device contains a centrifugal digitally-programmable fan that will ensure consistent fragrance release for up to 60 days. 

Furthermore, the fragrances are released as a dry vapor rather than a liquid or spray that can leave a residue on surfaces. It is free from any harmful solvents that can damage the health of humans or animals, or contaminate the environment. For larger spaces, there is the option of a device with up to seven cartridges that plugs into mains electricity.

Types of fragrance

When choosing a scent for a pet such as a dog or cat, it’s important to remember that their sense of smell is many times more powerful than that of humans, so consider the matter carefully. They use scent as a means for communication, as well as to interpret the world around them. 

Pets can become stressed and anxious just as humans can if they are in an unfamiliar environment, or are frightened by loud noises, or bored or unsettled by a change of routine. Some occasions such as fireworks night can be particularly distressing for them. Dogs can become anxious through the absence of companionship or exercise. 

Essential oils have been used for centuries for aromatherapy. Anxious animals, particularly dogs, can respond well to bergamot (citrus bergamia). It is a cool and refreshing scent that can help to soothe sad, angry or distressed dogs. Other useful calming fragrances include lavender, chamomile, frankincense, and vetiver. 

It’s best to introduce the fragrance gradually to allow your pet time to acclimatize. Observe how they react and try different placement points or diffusion settings for the best results. If you have a portable diffuser, take care to place it where your pet can’t chew it or knock it over. 

If you have unwanted smells that are sometimes the natural effect of having a dog, then look for fragrances that incorporate odor neutralizing technology.
