Hopefully this was the right forum to ask my question on. After searching through the website for a little bit, I think part of my question was answered but I just wanted to clarify some things.
I've read that beeswax candles can be safe for birds (though of course not when they're out of the cage), and is it correct that soy also can be safe? Also, I read a cotton wick is important for both bird and human health.
The part I wanted to clarify was this: I found most people saying conventional scented candles were a no-no, but I'm assuming this is because of the perfumes, not strong smells themselves. I've read that diffused essential oils in the air are not harmful to budgies, but would essential oil-scented beeswax and soy candles be safe?
Some other users said they have bought many candles from this company before: Candeo
and that the makers told them they were bird safe, as they have their own African Grey.
I just wanted to see what everyone thought, since I found some really wonderful beeswax and essential oil candles at the co-op next door to me.
Thanks for your input!
