Re: Scented wax warmers??

If you use scented candles/scentsy's and say your birds haven't had any problems that is all well and good until your much loved bird is dead. Will you wonder if you did everything to keep it healthy? Scented wax puts out a toxic fumes that is harmful to birds. It may not cause them to drop out of the air but it will harm them over time. If you're willing to take the risk that is up to you. I am not willing to risk shortening my babies lives if I am able to prevent it. Do I think there is an issue burning a scented candle/scentsy in another room? No, but I most certainly wouldn't do it near them.

It's just like the Teflon/PTFE issue! There are still people here in this forum that use it and say they haven't had any problems while others have had their birds drop to the bottom of the cage. We know it's not bird safe but some still use it!

Do I want to risk it if I don't have to? No! We all make our choices. I will not burn candles that are not Soy or Beeswax in my house!

Think about how asbestos effects the human lungs. You don't immediately see the problems until later in life. Suddenly you can't breath. Will this happen to your birds due to scented wax???

Stepping off my podium now.

Re: Scented wax warmers??

Personally, I like to err on the side of caution. I don't use any candles or warmers in my house. Better safe than sorry I think.

Re: Scented wax warmers??

I have recently discoverd that the wax you choose for your warmers makes a difference.......We have a citron cockatoo ..I use my warmer on a daily basis an have always used scentsy and other brands, until I discovered it was irratating his skin and he began to pluck ...not good! So I did my research and found an all natural soy/coconut based wax that is not only pet friendly but also kid friendly and Eco friendly, theres no "warnings" with this product so you can feel totally comfortable using it............since switching his feathers are coming back in and he's alot happier now. So I decided to become a consultant for the company...why not right! If anyone is intrested in checking out our products and wants to get away from all the harmful things to our birds please feel free to ck out my website at swrenn.foreveryhome.net you can also follow on FB at For Every Home by stephanie wrenn

Re: Scented wax warmers??

I use the warmers and have had no problems. I don't burn anything, if u burn any candle it is putting off stuff that is harmful. He is my opinion on the smells that people say harm the birds, most or some wax tarts have natural oils in them to make them sell. So it comes from an orange an herb something, if that hurts they bird they u better not feed them an orange or herbs either. I try to buy the natural 1's to be safe but out in the wild things smell!!!!!! They do not live in a bubble. I have air purifiers in my house, fans all that. I don't think a wax tart is any harm.
