Oil burners are made in all kinds of material – including ceramics, stone, brass, even wood – and can be an attractive addition to the decor of your home, as well as having the practical purpose of diffusing fragrances. You can use your burner with fragrant oil, essential oil, simmering granules, or scented wax.
With Fragrant Oil:
Simply fill the top of your burner with water and add some of your favourite fragrant oil. Then light a tealight underneath and away you go.
With Essential Oil:
Fill the top of your burner with water and add a few drops of essential oil, then warm from beneath with a tealight. Remember, with pure natural oils, less is generally more. For instance, Lavender would be the oil for warding off headaches and inducing sleep, but too much Lavender may have the opposite effect. Also, with pungent oils such as Eucalyptus, 2 or 3 drops may be sufficient. Vapour therapy, used sensibly, can be an invaluable tool for promoting health and well being in your home environment.
With Simmering Granules:
Simmering granules offer a clean, safe alternative to oils. Simply add 1 or 2 teaspoons to the top of your burner - no oil or water is needed, then light the tealight underneath. When they have eventually lost their fragrance, the granules can be conveniently thrown away and replaced with fresh ones.
With Scented Wax:
Simply place a fragranced wax tablet or tart into the well of your burner and light the tealight underneath.
Tip: if you have any left over pieces of fragrant candle, or candles where the wick has become damaged and unusable, you can always break up the wax and use it in your burner
