Halloween

It is said that Burning a candle inside a jack-o-lantern on Halloween keeps evil spirits and demons at bay. If the candle suddenly goes out by itself on Halloween, as though by breath or wind, it is believed that a ghost has come to call. Always burn a new candle on Halloween to ensure the best of luck.

Every Halloween Candle Purchased will receive a FREE 4 PACK of Skull Wax Melts (Scent: Cotton Candy) See Photo Below.

Is Your Oil Diffuser Poisoning Your Pet

Here at Sol Candles and Scents our main Mascot, AND the hardest worker out of everyone is Miss CoCo, our beautiful Kelpie/Collie Mix. (Photo Above, added a little montage from puppy to now)
This is why we needed to create this post as animal lovers it would be an injustice to not do so.

We only want to help educate people out there, we are not here to tell you what to do just to let know what could be harmful.

So jumping right in….
Did you know that Essential Oils can be harmful to your pet?
There has been an increase in poisoning due to high popularity of Oil Diffusers in homes.

Its important for every pet owner out there to be educated in what is harmful for our pets. Just because it doesn’t harm you doesn’t mean its going to be fine for your highly sensitive pet to inhale.

Symptoms of essential oil poisoning:

Common signs of poisoning as a result of inhalation (usually from an oil diffuser) include labored breathing, lack of coordination and difficulty walking, drooling, diarrhoea, lethargy, depression, low body temperature, weakness, muscle tremors and vomiting. When essential oils are exposed directly to the skin, they can also cause chemical burns, redness and irritation.

Oils that are particularly toxic to cats include:

Cassia
Cinnamon
Citrus
Clove
Bergamot
Basil
Eucalyptus
Geranium
Grapefruit
Lemon
Lime
Lavender
Melaleuca
Oregano
Peppermint
Pennyroyal
Spruce
Tea Tree
Thyme
Wintergreen
Wild orange

Oils that are particularly toxic to dogs include:

Clove
Garlic
Geranium
Juniper
Rosemary
Tea Tree
Thyme
Wintergreen

A lot of Vets are calling for action to be taken as the increase of poisoning occurs.

If you have an oil diffuser at home be mindful of the oils you can diffuse around your pet.
If you are using the oil diffuser for your own medical reasons keep the following in mind. When using, keep your pet out of the room you are using the oil diffuser in and also keep in mind that it is an oil which will settle on the floor and then your pet can transfer to there Paws and then ingest later through licking.

Another great site to read up on Essential Oil Poisoning is:

If your pet is showing any symptoms take them straight to your vet to get them checked out. We all love our fur babies and want to make sure they are having the best of care.

Much Love,

Your Support

There are so many changes going on for small business advertising that its getting harder and harder to get your products in front of prospective buyers.

I wanted to say that without you we would not have gotten through this last year. For every post on Facebook ONLY 2% of our customers following us will actually see it and now we are being restricted more.

Facebook wants to get in touch with the emotional side of our customers. So that means if you only “like” our post it won’t show as an emotional response. Facebook wants customers to engage by hitting, not the like button, it has to be love, happy, laughing, crying, angry and they want to see comments. The comment can be a simple emoji. The more people that do this means that our 2% of customers viewing increases. BUT if you don’t do any of the above facebook will take it to mean that you are not actually interested in our products so won’t show them to you again.

Which is why sometimes you see a post through a friend and it wasn’t on your feed. Thats because your friend makes an emotional response or comments on the posts.

We want you to keep seeing what we have been creating and pouring our heart and Sol into and we want to help ALL small businesses out there. Get behind us and give us an emotional response or comment.
Share, plug, talk about us.
I can not tell you how happy you makes me when I see this. It gives me hope and gets me pouring each and everyday.

Don’t be afraid to ask us Questions on our wall or in messenger. I will be more then happy to answer them for you!

Lots of Good Vibes,
Christie

Halloween and Football

I had a full image in my head of how I was going to spend this weekend. I wanted to accomplish creating 2 Special Orders. Both are AFL Candles and create Halloween Candles.
Now its always good to have a plan but sometimes what’s in your head doesn’t always work out in your design.

I ended up changing my mind on the Halloween Candles about 10 times. As I was creating the grand candle it finally occurred to me that it was taking me hours just to create 1, yes 1. Thats not going to work if I want to sell to the market so I had to revamp (no pun intended) the design again.

Let me tell you Australia doesn’t have any moulds that are readily available for Halloween. If I was to order from the USA it can take unto 8 weeks which is to late but would be perfect for next year. The moulds that I did end up purchasing ended up being to big to fit inside a candle, they will make perfect Halloween Melts though.

Anyways I ended going for a more refined design in the end. Photos will be up in the next 24 hours, can’t wait to show you.

As for the AFL candles, they have worked out a treat. It has given me the idea of creating NRL and AFL candles next Footy season and creating some decals to suit as well. It will make the perfect gift idea for your man or even a friend or family member. I’ll keep you posted. If you have any idea’s let me know and I’ll see if I can whip it up for you.

Chat Soon,

Spring is here!

Happy Spring Everyone,

I have woken up to the most beautiful Spring morning. I am sitting outside and the birds are singing and the sun is shining with not a cloud in the sky.

What does Spring mean for you?
For me its about our organic veggie garden growing, flowers blooming and the birds singing. Spring is the season full of Transformations. What not to love about it. The sweet smells, fresh herbs all of this is inspiration for scents in our candles.

Spring brings a bounce to everyone, its a little reminder that Summer is on its way. Outdoor entertaining is around the corner and unless you live on the 30th floor of a high rise apartment so are the mosquitos.
We are about to launch our new Citronella Candles. I have been testing for the last 2 weeks and couldn’t be happier. Within the next couple of days they will launch and I am excited to share these with you. We decided to create outdoor candles that are limited editions. Once the Jars run out we will release a new jar. This keeps it exciting and gives a lot of variety to those that want to make sure there outdoor screams design as well. So you if see one you like get in quick as they won’t be around forever.

I am also about to add 3 new scents to our Medium Candle range. Monkey Farts, Havana Club Mojito & Watermelon Lemonade*. The Watermelon Lemonade was a special request from a lovely customer of ours.

Plus we have an exciting small limited edition candle coming. Oh and lets not forget halloween. I will do a seperate post about that.

We have a quite a lot going on over September. Give a shout if you have special request and I will hunt it down for you.

Till next time, smile and laugh,

Christie
