Hi, I don't know if this is the right place but meh. So, I make my own candles with my own beeswax, extraction scented oils, and petals from my garden to make my home smell good. All of this has no pesticide. So is it safe or would it be the wick(only part I don't make) burning that release anything toxic to get a bird sick off of?

No it’s not safe for your bird.

There is never a safe way to burn any kind of candle in your parrots air space.

Essential oils are/can be a serious (even deadly) issue especially certain kinds of oil.
Melting beeswax comes with its own health issues for our birds I believe.
The choices of materials may be a much better option for human health but not burning any sort of candle or scented product is the safest and best option for our birds.
