While I believe that real essential oil diffusers are necessary for serious and life-threatening illnesses in birds, I have been having good results for day to day problems using a kleenex attached to the outside of the cage/aviary with a clothespin:) I cover the enclosure with towels or tarps to make a tent that will keep the EOs from escaping too fast, and then I soak down the kleenex with five or six drops of EOs. It seems to work very similarly to the mechanical diffusers but it’s so much quicker and easier to use a kleenex! I usually refill the kleenex after about three or four hours.
