Are Essential Oils Safe to Use Around Parrots?

Linda is concerned with using essential oils around her bird,

 

Are essential oils safe to use around parrots? Like on the family dog. Not diffuser. Would you share your insight, please? Thank you, Linda and flock

Hi Linda

We discourage essential oils in a bird home simply because it’s oil. The oil can merge into floating particulates or aerosols that can line the nasal passage and respiratory system reducing a bird’s ability to breathe.
