Purple Leaves Soapstone Oil Burner (Miniature Size)
A painted purple soapstone oil burner in an egg shape, featuring an intricate carved leaf pattern around the outside. 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 and the base are both removable, this can make it easier to clean the burner and when changing the tea-light before and 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.
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 5.5cm (2"), width of the oil burner itself (at the widest point) is roughly 7.3cm (2.7"), and the height of burner is 10 cm (4").

Dictionary Terms Explained
- Spirituality, wisdom, psychic development
Purple is traditionally a royal colour and sign of dignity. Garments made of purple cloth were typically worn by high priests, emperors, military leaders and magistrates in the Roman times, as well as having a strong association with Osiris, and Ancient Egyptian god.
The colour gained its superior authority as dying cloth purple was an expensive process, involving collecting secretions from two types of molluscs, so only the wealthiest people in society could afford to have clothes made of the colour.
In terms of magic, purple is linked to the spiritual dimension, psychic development, wisdom and spiritual strength. People often use the colour, whether through meditation or visualisation, to try and increase their spiritual development and access higher states. Likewise, in the chakra system, purple / violet relates to the crown chakra.
