Anyone know what these are? I have just bought one and am wondering about mixing my own "fuel" with alcohol and fragrance oils. Anyone know how to do that?
I have never used one, but I found this recipe on line;
" * 1 bottle 90% alcohol (do not use weaker strength)
* 9 cc's essential oil (not fragrance oil)
Drip the essential oil directly into the bottle of alcohol. A syringe works best. Shake and enjoy! "
They d not say what size bottle, but I assume it is a standard drug-store size.
Thanks! I tried that and it works great. Boy, I like this lamp! Makes the WHOLE house smell wonderful.
I'm glad it worked. BTW, where did you get the lamp?
Hobby Lobby. Was priced at $39.99 but I got it when they had candles and such at 50% off. I paid $20.00.
Thanks for the info. There is no Hobby Lobby around here, so, since you piqued my curiosity, I ordered one from The Scent Smith.
Just incase anyone new is reading this and wonders what a "cc" is, it is the equivalent of a "ml". 1cc=1ml. As a nurse we measure in cc's all the time. So, just wanted to put that out there as an fyi. If i wasnt a nurse, I would have no idea what a cc was!:)
Thanks for adding that. As a Science teacher, I had no trouble with that one, but you are right; not every one would know it. I would also add that 5 cc's (or ML's) are the same as one teaspoon. (Using a measuring spoon.)
I love effusion lamps and always got the amazing Lampe Berger fragrances. I live in San Francisco, but Lampe Berger does not ship any more to California. There are some other brands such as La Tee Da, Alexandria's, Sophia's etc., but they seem like cheap imitations and smell weak/bad. Sophia's is the worst of the lot.
I love these lamps and have been using Lampe Berger oils/fragrances and feel lost without them! I have tried some independent ones on Ebay or Etsy but they are kinda hits or misses. Any other fragrance oil brands someone can recommend? Thanks
