What is a fragrance lamp and how does it work?
Contrary to the name, fragrance lamps are not used for illumination. They effectively clean and scent the air using a catalytic stone wick that burns an alcohol - based fragrance lamp oil. Once the fragrance lamp is filled with fragrance lamp oil to no more than 2/3 capacity, the fragrance lamp wick (which has been saturated with 91% alcohol) is seated in the neck of the fragrance lamp. The fragrance lamp wick is lit and allowed to burn for about two minutes before the flame is blown out. The vented crown is placed over the fragrance lamp wick, which continues to burn without a flame.

Strong, vibrant scents. No risk of fire.
Reed diffusers have a wonderful aromatic scent while being flame-free.
Absolutely no heat is needed. This makes them safe for classrooms, offices, nursing homes, homes.
WARNING: Heating reed diffuser scents is VERY DANGEROUS as they are FLAMMABLE!!!!!!
Reed diffusers emanate NO soot or film onto your furniture, walls and ceiling.
The BEST thing about Reed Diffusers? They last for months!
Pour the oil into the diffuser bottle, insert sticks.
Turn over once to expose oil-moistened sticks to air.
The oil will continue to wick up the sticks and scent your room for several months.
Turn sticks upside down occasionally to refresh scent. (When the oil is finally used up, simply pour in an oil refill and replace the diffuser sticks.)
What are the Reeds made of?
Reed is very porous and excellent for diffusion. Each 3mm reed stick contains 20 or more individual cellular sections that run from top to bottom of the reed- like 20 micro-mini straws, totally open to pull liquid from bottom to top.
This wicks the fragrance from inside the bottle, carries it to the top surface of the reed, and releases the fragrance into the air naturally. Our reed supplier has been in the reed business for 25 years. They absolutely stand by these facts.
How much diffuser oils should I use in my diffuser?
Start out with a full or half full bottle of oil. 4 to 8 oz of oil in a typical 8 oz bottle.
This will not only allow the oil to enter from the ends of the reed, but also, to permeate the reed sides too.
The diffusion will take place faster and stronger. The fragrance will continue to diffuse as long as there's any amount of diffuser oil in the bottle.
However, if you start with just 2 oz., it will take a much longer amount of time for the oil to begin diffusing, since it will be wicking purely through the capillary action on the bottom ends of the reeds.
How many reeds should I use in my diffuser?
10 to 12 reeds will diffuse plenty of scent with our fragrance diffuser oils. If the bottle neck is a little wider, 15 reeds look and diffuse fine too.
Can I dilute Fragrance with water to make a diffuser blend?
No. Oil and water don't mix. The viscosity is totally different too. You'll end up with uneven wicking and warped reeds.
Why can't I re-use the reeds over and over?
Once the sticks are totally saturated, the cells in the reeds get somewhat clogged and lose their ability to pull the scent up into the reeds and throw the fragrance into the room.
Needless to say, you definitely can't move the reeds to a different scent of oil- because the cells will be clogged with the previous scent of fragrance diffuser oil. You won't get a pure scent transfer.
Will airing the reeds outside "clean" them?
No. The reeds are saturated with oil.
Oil doesn't evaporate in the same way that water does.
My bottle is not empty but my fragrance doesn't seem to be diffusing.
Add new reeds and your fragrance oil will start up again. Occasionally reeds may become saturated.
