You pour some kind of scented liquid into the reservoir, replace the "wick" (a ceremic top with a string that goes down into the liquid), light the ceramic top, and it produces a pleasing aroma.
The place where I bought it closed. I'm out of the aroma stuff.
Does anybody know what this is called?
Sorry, you’re not making any scents.
No, but recognize (I think) the description. Those devices are sold all over the place. Target/WalMart/KMart/some drug stores carry a whole line of the oils.
You need to re-post this to breaking news.
Effusion lamp. Use only effusion lamp fragrance as any other type may cause a fire hazard.
I got an aroma thingy too. Usually after eating beans....
Sorry, youre not making any scents.
He can go to the five and ten scent store.
Google Lamberger oil. That’s what you’re looking for. It’s really not oil, seems to be mostly alchohol, but anyway ...
You are funny, and I love your tagline.
I’d would call the reservoir doodad the Aroma Dome. Anyone from Tacoma, WA knows what I mean. LOL!
That’s it. You’re the best. thanx
You betcha. The lamp thingys work just dandy in our house and I have not noticed an increase in my severe allergy problem which existed prior to when started using the light bulb scent devices.
Answer that question missy!!
We always called it an aroma thingy,too!
[hiccup] only guessing ... it was an unfortunate Coleman lantern accident ... uh, I forget.
From a guy I met not long ago who worked as a camera man for a number of years in Hollywood he said Daryl Hannah had that aroma thing going on, too.
Do you mean Daryl..or her brother Daryl?
AT DOLLAR TREE, WHERE EVERYTHING IS $1.00. Avoid any other ‘dollar’ store.
Dollar Tree, cost = $1.00/bottle
Tealight candles = Dollar Tree
I found this lobster butter warmer at the Crate and Barrel Outlet Store — it’s perfect for perfumed oil, as it’s deep .. which you want so it doesn’t splatter when the oil gets heated.
They’re not presently stocking it, but search for the brand name.
Pour the liquid potpourri oil in your container .. it needs to be deep, NOT shallow. Liquid should be about an inch and half deep.
Light the perfumed or plain tealight candle.
Shake several drops of perfumed essential oil into liquid potpourri oil.. Dollar Tree does carry the little bottles of perfumed oil (they’re in the candle section, and the bottles are really small), also, or you can get them at other stores like specialty or health food stores, etc.
If they don’t have the small bottles of perfumed essential oil at Dollar Tree, I get the scented reed oil diffuser oil there, and use just a few drops into the oil.
Also, check Walmart in the candle/perfumed oil section for the small bottles of perfumed oils.
I always have perfumed oil simmering .. and you gotta improvise to get all the elements.
They make them both as combustible and non-combustible forms. It’s better to use the latter, and the combustible ones can create some slightly toxic vapors.
As a side note, some of the “deordorizers” being sold are just a combination of a perfume and a chemical that desensitizes the sense of smell. They are chemically very different from real deodorizers, that actually bind with the bad smelling particles and neutralize them.
Maybe it was Larry!
When you find some more, stay away from the Eau de Cochon fragrance.......
I don’t know who sold them, but someone I know bought a pack of those shallow candles in a cup, I guess they float, well the cup was made of plastic and the candle burned down and caught the plastic on fire, fortunately the candle was on a plate and didn’t catch anything else on fire, just mentioning this so that if any of you buy these little candles you buy one with the metal cups.
is this officially boring information day?
I heard that was banned in Muslim countries...
The house I sold 10 years ago in the little town of Almont burned about 1/4 down...caused by a jelly candle one of the kids had burning in their bedroom. Those things are dangerous. The catch fire easily...the dad was the only one burned bad, all the kids and wife made it out OK.
>> I’m out of the aroma stuff.
I can make you some more. All I need is a plateful of beans and cabbage. I gotta warn you though, I’m a “one trick pony” — only produce one scent.
>> Does anybody know what this is called?
Not sure, but judging from the crowd response when I “light off” *my* aromatherapy thingamajig, it’s called “Aw Dude That’s Gross”.
This is where I stocked up on lamp fragrance and wicks. They have a large variety. I think you will be very happy with them.
I have to deal with these things at work. Pleasing is a matter of opinion. Some fragrences produce a runny nose, others a headache or nausea.
Do some research on these things. What do they use as a dispersant? What do they use for fragrences. Most perfumes use tolulene and ethyl alchol as dispersants. Tolulene is recognized as a carcinogen.
