New pet, what type of bedding?

Hello, New to the forum thing but a friend told me to join one, It would be helpful... so here I am. I have bought a guinea pig for my daughter. We have a nice big 2 level cage, plenty of toys and we are using a lavender scented bedding. I think the scent is a little much and now I am wonder how it may effect halo (her guinea pig). Is the lavender bedding good for her to smell all the time?

Since you don't know for sure if the lavender scent is a fragrance oil or true essential oil (which it probably isn't because it would be too expensive) I'd fear it may eventually be toxic since guinea pigs are so low to the floor of the cage. Don't trust cedar bedding either. I use plain pine which is very economical or aspen which is pricier.

what i used for my guinea pig is i would mix the ultra carefresh (white) and the regular carefresh(gray). make sure the flooring isn't mesh or wire, if it is it will cut his feet.
