A large blue glazed ceramic oil burner with a triangular cut-out pattern and a deep bowl for use with burning wax melts, or when using essential oils (when dropped onto water inside the bowl).
This oil burner is one of the largest that we sell and features a much larger bowl than some of our other oil burners that we stock.
Using Essential Oils
To use essential oils with your burner, you would usually place some water in the top bowl, then light a tea-light candle beneath and tip a few drops of your chosen essential oil into the water in the bowl. As the water slowly heats, the fragrance from the oil will gently release into the room. Please note - You should never put essential oils directly into the bowl without water as this will cause overheating and can burn the oils.
Be cautious when lighting a candle in the burner, or when placing a lit tea-light inside. Use a mixture of oil and water if burning essential oils, set the burner on a heat resistant surface. Once lit, do not leave unattended and do not move whilst alight. Never allow the oils or melts to boil dry, and the burner may get hot during use, so allow to cool for several minutes before touching. Keep out of the reach of children.
Size of Oil Burner
Diameter of bowl is approximately 12.5 (5"), height of burner is 13.2cm (5.2").
