    Question Scented Wax Melts Safe Around Guinea Pigs?

    I don't use them incredibly often but when I have guests over I like to use wax warmers. Are regular ones safe to use in the same room as guinea pigs? If not what scents/air fresheners are safe for guinea pigs?

    Since I've never used them, I have no personal experience to contribute. But, unless the scent is absolutely overpowering and the room has poor ventilation, I can't imagine it causing a problem.

    I use them when every now and then. My piggies seem fine... they don’t react negatively so far. The smells aren’t too strong though and I try not to let them go for a long time.

    I'm not a fan of anything scented that's in an oil-based carrier. There's some evidence that those aromatics are harmful in the long term, and I'm not willing to risk it either for me or for my pets.

    I have found natural pet safe wax melts on Chewy, do you think those would be fine?
    Here's a link to one - https://www.chewy.com/pet-house-lave...ural/dp/143279
