Red Floral Soapstone Oil Burner (Miniature Size)
A painted red soapstone oil burner, featuring an intricate carved floral pattern around the outside which displays some of the natural stone colour. For use with burning wax melts, or when using essential oils (when dropped onto water inside the bowl). This would make a lovely ornament in any room, as a centerpiece or on the mantelpiece.
The dish at the top is removable, this can make it easier to clean the burner after use. This oil burner has a smaller 'bowl' within it compared to some of our other oil burners that we stock. It would be best used with essential oils or small wax melts.
Please Note: The natural pattern of the soapstone may vary; each burner is unique. These burners are a lot smaller than many others that we stock (but still just as beautiful!)
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, as 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 inner bowl at the widest point is approximately 5cm (2"), width of the oil burner itself (at the widest point) is roughly 6.5cm (2.2"), and the height of burner is 9cm (3.5").

Colours can affect our physical, mental, emotional and spiritual states, both consciously and unconsciously. We can use colours to help us feel better, to inject an element of vitality into our life, or to calm strong feelings and promote a sense of peace and relaxation.
The colour red is typically associated with a range of emotions and states of being, including: energy, passion, love, joy, vitality, health, strength, power, fire, aggression and danger. Different people perceive colours in different ways, so you may have other associations, which are equally valid.
Throughout ancient traditions, red has been a dominant colour, symbolising both positivity and negativity. It's been used to represent the colour of gods of sun and war and is often associated with power. In China it was the emblem of the Chou dynasty and was thought of as being one of the luckiest colours. In Christianity red is associated with the act of sacrifice, representing the blood of Christ who died on the cross. Red is a particularly dominant colour in the Tarot.
The colour has links with passion and sexuality, too. Hearts are usually depicted as red and it features widely in the annual celebration of St. Valentine's Day, and in Greece it was the colour of the phallic God, Priapus. Young North American Indians traditionally painted themselves in red, believing it would increase their strength and desire.
As far as the chakras go, red is the colour used to symbolise the base chakra.
