Three Best Soy Candle Scents to Eliminate Pet Odor

As the proud mother of three cats and one dog, I have to admit that my home often smells like there are, indeed, four animals living it. Lucky for me, as the owner of Milton and Margie's Soy Wax Candles, I make soy candles and burn them nonstop all day every day to help combat my animals' disgustingness.

You could always opt for some Glade Plug-Ins or Febreeze, but I prefer the natural alternative of lighting soy candles to keep my home smelling fresh (of course, for accidents on rugs or furniture, I pull out the Arm and Hammer Pet Stain and Odor Remover). The cheap scents in household sprays give me a headache and make me feel claustrophobic—is that just me? 

So what candle scents are best for eliminating pet odor? Here are a few of my favorites. You can't even tell that one of my cats (it's Cobra) semi-regularly pees on one of my arm chairs!

1. Lemongrass Basil

There's a reason why so many household cleaners smell like lemon: it is one of the best scents for eliminating odors. Lemongrass has the same effect. It instantly freshens the room and neutralizes bad smells. 

2. Market Days

Scents that feature citrus oils are especially great at getting rid of bad smells, and Market Days is a refreshing, citrus combination of blood orange, mango, red currant, and sandalwood, making it a great candidate for squashing pet odor. 

3. Lavender Lemon

Lavender Lemon packs a double punch, as both lemon and lavender are both highly effective in neutralizing odors. I keep a Lavender Lemon candle burning all day on a shelf next to the litter boxes, and it makes me feel so much better about my life. 

The Classics Never Go Out of Style: Pumpkin Spice Soy Candles

Hang onto your hats, folks, it's pumpkin spice season—that cinnamony time when lattes, donuts, and even hair-dos turn orange (re: #pumpkinspicehair, for real). And you might have guessed it: Milton and Margie's Soy Wax Candles isn't even a little bit tired of the pumpkin spice craze. I'm over here sipping pumpkin spice ale while wearing pumpkin pie lip gloss as I make batches of pumpkin spice soy candles in sweet vintage mugs. And all the action is fueled by eating bowls of Pumpkin Spice Cheerio's. If only there were a pumpkin spice La Croix flavor.

Pumpkin Spice Soy Candle

The rich, cinnamon-infused scent just smells like home to me, and I didn't even grow up in a home where anyone made pumpkin pies. Milton and Margie's Pumpkin Spice scent is a rich blend of pumpkin and cinnamon with top notes of ginger and orange, balanced by the sweet aromas of brown sugar and vanilla.
