AURA COLORED ULTRA PURE LIQUID PARAFFIN LAMP OIL / CANDLE OIL COMES IN 26 CUSTOM COLORS click here for Aura Lamp Oils

Only use the highest grade liquid paraffin lamp oil. Our lamp oil is 99.5%+ pure. It is smokeless and odorless. If you are looking for scented lamp oils, they will not work within an oil candle. However, we offer an aromatherapy wick. It's our essential oil diffuser. All you do is place 8-10 drops of your favorite essential oils in the bowl of the aromatherapy wick and voila! One wick will disperse a light scent of your special aroma throughout a small room (10' by 10'). For larger rooms you'll need to use additional aromatherapy oil lamps.

FIBERGLASS WICKS:

A fiberglass wick is ideal in oil lamps because it has superior wicking power and never burns up even when you run out of lamp oil or candle oil fuel. Care should be taken though to keep the exposed wick as short as possible for peak efficiency. Follow lamp lighting instructions provided with each kit or oil lamp to optimize performance of your new oil lamps or for your existing lamps with replacement oil lamp / candle parts, supplies and accessories.

We use only the highest grade fiberglass wicks available in the marketplace today. Ours are 1/8th" in diameter for superb wicking power and a nice size flame. Each wick comes with a glass wick holder. These glass wicks are available in 1" or 2" lengths; are 1/4" wide at the neck and 1/2" wide at the head.

Note: If your lamp is smoking indoors, it means you have too much wick exposed or you are either using the wrong product or an inferior product for your oil candle / oil lamp. You should switch to the purest liquid paraffin lamp oil such as ours and you must replace the fouled wick.

WASHERS:

The standard fiberglass wick and its glass wick holder, as mentioned above is 1/2" wide at the head and will fit most hand blown glass openings. For wider openings Aura Oil & Lamp Creations has three different washers capable of fitting most necks & tops. They are 3/4", 1" & 1 1/4" wide. The fiberglass wick and its wick holder should be carefully inserted through the designated washer and then placed into your oil lamps.
