    Yest there really is a parrot safe one :) Have just noticed that the Lilac bushes are in flower!

    Makes a lovely room freshener and its parrot safe :aaaaa:

    Get out there and grab some!

    For those who don't know what it looks like its this stuff ... Grows as a bush or a largish tree if old enough. Comes in a few colours apparently there are some "designer" colours these days ....... anyways has a really lovely heady sweet scent.

    Daft question alert... are these parrot safe as in if they ate a large amount of it, it's perfectly safe?

    It's the chemical composition of the oil that will make it either safe or not. Many of the cheap ones are definitely not safe and since when an oil is heated the chemical interaction changes it's a hit and miss affair if the one you chose is safe or not. Think of it this way ... teflon when cold = safe and overheated = killer, birds airways are far more specialised and efficient that ours
    There are however loads of flowing plants that are scented that are safe so that is why I use them. I would never forgive myself in experimenting and loosing one of my birdies.
    There was a book released regarding aromatherapy for birds hmm think it was back in 2014 or 2013 .....will see if I can locate it for you to consider :)
