A Two Tone Oil Burner with Elephant design for use with burning wax melts, or when using essential oils (when dropped onto water inside the bowl).
This oil burner has a larger bowl than many other of our oil burners that we sell (of which might only fit one or two small melts). Depending on the size of the melt you are using, this should fit considerable more.
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 inner bowl at the widest point is approximately 8.5cm (3.4"), width of the oil burner itself at the widest point is roughly 8.5cm (3.5") and the height of burner is 11cm (4.2").
More About the Symbol of the Elephant
The elephant is one of the most popular and best known animal symbols. Elephants are highly regarded as being a symbol of loyalty - as they tend to stick together - and of strength and power, as they're one of the largest and most powerful creatures. They're known for their intelligence and wisdom too (they live long lives) and, the classic phrase, "Elephants never forget," reflects an elephant's intellect and memory abilities. Due to this, anything associated with an elephant makes a great gift for a special friend, signifying that you'll never forget them or their kindness.
Many people also regard the elephant symbol as lucky and something that could bring them good luck, especially ornaments or statues that feature raised trunks. Elephants feature in Buddhism, as Buddha chose a white elephant as one of his incarnations, and they're considered as being holy, patient and wise. Elephants are very important in Thailand, both in the culture and way of life, and are regarded as a symbol of power and peace. In the late 17th century, a Thai king had 20,000 elephants trained ready to do battle in war. A white elephant still features today on the flag of the Royal Thai navy. Overall, anything involving elephants, such as a mini statues, ornament or jewellery, is good to have around and promotes positive feelings of loyalty, wisdom and strength, reminding us that we have much to learn from elephants.
