Hey there I was wandering what people use to make their rooms in their homes smell nice that is bird friendly any feedback for what you use would be brilliant thanks
Lovely thanks I'll try thatAs long as they are bird safe I use fresh fragrant herbs such as rosemary, mint, coriander, lavender (when fresh but it goes powdery so only use when fresh) and fresh cut flowers ie roses, I also use cloves and cinnamon sticks stuck into citrus fruit and allowed to dry by a radiator, particularly in the winter.
I am qualified in aromatherapy so have a collection of oils. I buy from natural thinking a uk company. I've read lavender and lemongrass are okay around birds, is that correct ? I would put in a bowl of water or on a dry tissue.I use Young Living Essential Oils. They are expensive but one of the very few brands that are truly pure. A US vet (Dr Melissa Shelton) used to use them for her own animals and her clients' animals (and birds) before she decided to make her own (Animal EO - which unfortunately are not shipped outside the US) so I am confident in their purity - I have used them for about 10 years now. Was recently given the go ahead to keep using them by a homeopathic vet in Austria.
thats really interesting thanksIf you are absolutely sure your oils have no artificial additives, lavender and lemongrass are okay. Remember any company can put 100% pure on the label as it is not regulated. Even Holland & Barratt say 100% pure, but their prices suggest otherwise. Lavender and tea tree are two of the most adulterated oils - more is sold than is produced.
