Helpful Tips For Operating Your Catalytic Fragrance Lamp from The Lamp Stand.
Due to the unique design of the fragrance lamp, using the lamp can be challenging if instructions are not carefully followed. The following tips will help you to have a great experience in operating your fragrance lamp.
‚It is best to use up all the fragrance in the lamp at one time. Using a measuring cup, fill the lamp only with the amount of oil you plan to use at that time, but no more than half full. The oil will burn about 1 oz. per hour. (This will help prevent your stone from clogging. Oil left setting in the lamp can clog the stone SEE BELOW).
‚TOUBLESHOOTER: If oil has been setting in the lamp when not in use and you think the stone may be clogged, you may try soaking your wick overnight or for a few days in pure isopropyl alcohol or "Dilute". This may clean out excessive oil residue in the stone.
‚Make sure you fill your lamp NO MORE than _ full. (This ensures there is enough oxygen circulating within the lamp in order to pull pollutants out of the air and emit fragrance into the air).
‚Make sure you allow the oil to soak into the wick for about 20 minutes before lighting it. The snuffer cap (solid cap) must be on the lamp covering the wick during this time. The stone should then appear a little darker, somewhat saturated with the oil.
‚When you light the stone, make sure you allow the flame to burn for no more/no less than 3 minutes, then blow out the flame. (This prevents ruining of the stone, in which it may not light or hold a flame for any length of time).
‚Always replace the small snuffer cap back over the stone when not in use, otherwise the alcohol will evaporate and the oil will not emit.
‚After you have burned your lamp many times, your wick will need to be replaced. This is evident when the stone is very dark black and will not hold a flame.
