Has Rover seemed down lately? Is Princess or Fluffy stressed? Maybe your four-legged friends need some aromatherapy. Consumerist reports on Sniff-brand aromatherapy candles for dogs—that carry price tags of $32 apiece. "Aromatherapy is a natural & safe alternative for pet care," the company website says. "The Sniff aromatherapy line of candles meets the most common needs of dog wellness and are pleasant to use and non-intrusive. By using in each candle, the perfect blend of essential oils to offer emotional balance, and energy, your dog will experience an overall improved sense of well-being." [Consumerist]
