Sun Design Oil Burner with Blue Crackle
This white matte ceramic oil burner has a sun design on the front which has a lovely effect when a tea-light candle is lit inside. The burner itself has a rough finish, whilst the bowl has green/blue crackle glaze inside.
Ideal 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.
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 7cm (2.8"), width of the oil burner itself (at the widest point) is roughly 8.5cm (3.4"), and the height of burner is 8.5cm (3.5"). This oil burner is fairly sturdy, and weighs approximately 230g (without packaging).

Dictionary Terms Explained
- energy, vitality, masculine
The sun is seen to represent the father and male principle, whilst in contrast, the moon signifies the mother and feminine principle. It's the source of heat and the bringer of light out of darkness and symbolises vitality, passion, courage and knowledge.
Just because it's generally referred to as a masculine energy doesn't mean that it's just for men. Both men and women have their male and female aspects. We all develop, and have the ability to access, them both.
The sun symbol features in many traditions, and some depict it as the symbolic centre of heart of the universe. Although viewed as a male principle in the majority of traditions, in Germany and Japan, as well as in tribes in some areas of the Celtic world and Africa, it was, for a time, viewed as female. The connection with the sun has led to many people worshipping its energy and vitality, with Peru, Mexico and Egypt being most famous for their sun cults.
As far as icons of the sun go, they are varied throughout the world. The Peruvian's depicted it in human form with a golden face, but it's also commonly shown as a gold disc, a rayed disc, a half-disc with or without rays and even as a wheel or spiral. Likewise, the colours used vary, from bright and golden yellow, to red, bronze and terracotta.
