Default Advice about Budgies and Candles please?

I want to use these new scent chips that i found in my local health store, they are small oval scented wax peices. the way you use them is you put them in the top part of an oil burner and you light a tealight candle under neath it and the heat from the tealight candle melts the wax and they give off a lovely smell.

My mum uses them and they smell so good. I want to use them in my kitchen (my budgie only usually stays in the living room apart from on some occasions she will follow me to the kitchen) but the scent of the wax will obviously travel to the other rooms

so i need to know if these would be safe to use in case she does breath any of the scent in? the ingredients to the scent wax chips are below;

paraffin-soya wax, fragrance oils and colourings.


Also, is the tealight candle itself ok to use? im not sure if that would give off anything?

Thank you for any advice.

P.S. if it isnt safe to use the above, is there any alternative that i can use to scent my home that would be safe for budgies? i have tried burning essential aromatherapy oils before like pine etc but they burn out too fast and i also need the tealight candle to heat those.

I think as long as the tealight candle is unscented, it will be fine, but just to be on the safe side don't put it in the same room with the budgie. I'm not sure about the chips, though, although I know that alternatives do exist. Here's a link:

It is not safe to use burn candles with a metal wick so I would definitely not use tealights.

Personally, I do not believe "real" candles should be used in a home with birds whether those candles are scented or unscented.

I would also suggest you look for different natural options to create scents in your home. Using melted paraffin wax chips with fragrance oils is not safe for your bird even if she is in another room.

You can use specific essential oils, you can use dried or fresh herbs,or you can boil cinnamon, cloves, allspice, and/or nutmeg
