IT'S NO SECRET that we are firm believers in filling your home with, not only beautiful furnishings, but inspirational scents as well. This is very much our forte!

However, if you share your sanctuary with a loving pet companion, often times your space can become... theirs (read: animal scent and shedding fur galore)! Rest assured, it doesn’t have to be like this – you can have the best of both worlds with a few simple tricks.

First and foremost, take precautions to protect your candles from prying paws. We spoke to Bupa Pet Insurance about all things candles vs. pets - we're 100% believers you can have both. Our number one tip? Keep candles high on a securely fastened shelf, but close enough to your pet’s environment so the scent of the candle can counteract any animals smell. 

Lumira Founder & Creative Director, Almira Armstrong, explains in the article for those thinking about their space and how to scent it effectively consider the following: ‘You can layer a subtle, cleansing scent on top of existing animal scents – although don’t overcompensate with strong fragrances.’ Why? There is nothing worse than two strong scents battling it out in your loungeroom!

If you are a pet owner or are buying a present for one, consider the lighter aromas of Lumira Balinese Ylang Ylang, Sicilian Citrus or Tropical Gardenia for a clean and fresh home.
