I have a parrot in a big cage; his name is Madison. To keep the cage free of parasites that get on bird skin, I put three to four drops of Purification on the bottom of the cage, which is covered with newspaper, in the morning and at night before going to bed. Madison loves reading the newspaper. The cage smells clean and Madison gets all the benefits of Young Living essential oils. Madison’s doctor thought that I had Madison’s cage covered with chemicals that get rid of these types of parasites, since Madison has been parasite free for the last six years. As an added bonus, I use lavender essential oil on Madison’s cage to calm him down when he gets too excited. Birds have a very sensitive respiratory system, and fumes from solvents and cleaners commonly used at home can cause a bird’s death.
