Effusion Lamps

What are effusion lamps and how do they work?
Effusion lamps are decorative fragrance lamps that destroy odors and bacteria in the air while increasing oxygen levels and perfuming your environment and eliminating unwanted odors. These lamps use a catalytic burner that reaches 140 degrees Fahrenheit to combust a special alcohol based liquid fuel. The burning fuel releases molecules into the air to capture and destroy odors while dispersing essential oils.
 
Effusion lamps exchange fragrance for unwanted odors in the air. It operates at approximately 1/3 the temperature of a candle. It draws fragrance up through the wick the the burner. The burner releases fragrance and will saturate a room more quickly and consistently than other fragrance products. It typically takes about 45 minutes to fragrance the average size home. The fragrance burns at approximately 1 oz per hour.

What is the history of effusion lamps?
In 1898 a French pharmacist invented the first catalytic combustion effusion lamp while trying to find a process to purify air. These lamps were used by the medical world for their antibacterial powers in hospitals, health facilities, and mortuaries where hygiene was of utmost importance until the mid 1900’s.

Today they are much more decorative than the original versions used in hospitals. Some are made from hand-blown glass and are very collectible. These lamps are now being used to purify air and eliminate odors in homes, offices, and any other environments that people live and work in. Sit back, relax, and enjoy your Effusion lamp, it will keep the air refreshed in your environment for many years.

Are there any benefits to using an effusion lamp?
Effusion lamps purify the air by oxidizing air particles, destroying odors and air borne bacteria. They increase oxygen levels in the air and because they do not have a continuous flame or produce soot they are safer and cleaner than candles. The fuels used in the lamps contain essential oils that are made from natural botanical extracts. These oils perfume the air and provide aromatherapy, as well as having insect repelling properties.

How do I use my effusion lamp?
Use these directions on our blog or watch this video (coming soon).
 
My lamp won't light. What can I do?
- Is your lamp too full? The lamp cannot be filled with more than 2/3 fragrance because it must have room for the combustion to take place.
- Did you let the wick soak up the fragrance? You can tell you've let the wick soak up enough fragrance if the wick stone has turned from light gray to dark gray. If it is still light gray, replace the metal cap and wait about 20 minutes before trying to light it again.
- Is your wick clogged? If you leave the metal cap off the wick stone, the fragrance solution can build up and clog the wick. To unclog your wick, place it in a sealed container of isopropyl alcohol for a few days. This may help.
- Your wick may have absorbed too much moisture from the air. Empty the lamp, let the wick dry completely. Try again.
 
Why is my fragrance evaporating when I'm not using my lamp?
The fragrance is made with isopropyl alcohol and will evaporate if not sealed. To keep the fragrance from evaporating when your lamp is not being used, you must replace the metal cap. You do not have to wait for the lamp to cool off.
 
My fragrance is too strong. What can I do?
You can dilute your fragrance with Purifier (Greenleaf) and Dilute (La Tee Da).
