I began to make candles a while ago. I have been giving them away for a while and now sell them to make up some of the money for the material I put into the candles. Here is my website so far: http://scentifulcandles.bigcartel.com/

Smile Thanks for looking!

...Not really? Ha I am not sure. I mean they probably shouldn't eat it... Or fly into the flame.

Some scents in scented candles have been reported to cause problems for birds. Some people think paraffin is potentially harmful and others think the wicks can be problematic.

I suppose the bottom line is that bird owners are not a large market overlap with scented candles.

That said, I've been known to burn them, just not in the direct presence of my birds and with good ventilation.

Cupcake Candles looks so original! Very Happy
Have you tried somewhere outside the bird forum? Candles and birds = not good together:(
Good luck!
