Oil Burners, Diffusers and Vaporisers
Oil burners, diffusers and vaporisers are a method of bringing heavenly aromas into the home using oils or waxes. The burner, diffuser or vaporiser will have a reservoir for water at the top and space below for a night light candle, also called a tea light.
Fill the reservoir with water and add a couple of drops of your favourite fragrance oil or aromatherapy oil. Alternatively place some wax melts into the reservoir. Light the candle and place it underneath.
The heat from the candle will heat the water and release the lovely aromas from the oils to fragrance your room, or melt the wax, again releasing its gorgeous fragrance.
Keep a close watch on the water level and top up regularly to ensure it does not boil dry and crack. To protect your furniture always stand on a heatproof mat.
Try adding more than one oil to create your own unique fragrances.
