Many people don't know a lot about fragrance lamps. Or, they have misguided notions about them. One misconception is that a fragrance lamp is not a safe item to have in a household, particularly if there are children or pets present. But the truth of the matter is that a fragrance lamp is a very safe product to have around. This is because while a flame is required to start the process of catalytic combustion that goes on in a lamp, it is extinguished within a few minutes of operation, and a special stone in the lamp continues to stay heated without the flame being present.

Honestly, if you would like to give your home a fresh, clean scent in an efficient and cost effective manner, then using a fragrance lamp may be the way to go. In addition to scenting a home with a pleasing aroma, fragrance lamps will also eliminate those not-so-pleasing odors. This occurs by the catalytic combustion process, which speeds up the decomposition process of those bad, odor-giving-off molecules. While those bad molecules are being destroyed, good scents are given off by aromatic fragrance lamp oils that are slowly heated and dispersed with the fragrance lamp's stone.

Fragrance lamps have been in use for over one hundred years. Originally, the purpose of such a lamp was to add cleansing scents to the air while removing the bad scents. The alcohol in a fragrance lamp's fuel is converted into anions, which are then heated and partnered with the bad smells in the air. They are then eliminated, and in their place is the beautiful scent that is included with the fragrance lamp.

The nice thing about fragrance lamps is that they are safe and effective. A flame is used initially, but can be safely extinguished completely within a few minutes. With no flame, there is no worry of fire, or of animals or children being burned. After that, the special stone that is built into the lamp continues to generate heat. The stone absorbs the fragrance, then re-releases it into the air during the catalytic conversion process. The room's air is purified and lightly scented. So, what else is there to know about fragrance lamps? Well, you can swap out oils as you'd like.

Of course, you should always clean the stone and internal parts of the fragrance lamp, so that you don't have oils mixing together and creating potentially confusing or unpleasant odors. The stones can also be replaced as need be. Finally, you should know that you can purchase fragrance lamps and related accessories online.
