A very convenient, safe and inexpensive way to relax at home.

Homemade Aromatherapy Oil Lamp

During the Mt. Pinatubo eruption in Zambales, Philippines sometime in June 1991, we have experienced total black out, literally. Aside from the fact that electricity was cut off, the sky went very dark you could not see anything. And it was barely 2 o’clock in the afternoon. Then we realized that the thick ashes produced by the eruption covered the whole atmosphere, so thick that even the sunlight cannot penetrate. It was like that for a few days that we already got used to it. Then some of our relatives met some Aetas from Botolan, Zambales who evacuated to our town for safety. They taught them how to make an oil lamp instead of usual kerosene fueled lamp. Kerosene and other petroleum products were very scarce at that time because of the calamity and crisis. This gave me the idea of why not make a twist to the original idea of these ethnic geniuses.

Surely the following materials are readily available in your household.

You will be needing:
• Clean empty clear jar or glass
• Rock Salt
• Cooking oil
• Match stick
• Piece of cotton
• Your favorite aromatherapy oil

Procedure:
• Fill the glass with salt up to about 1-2 cm to becoming full
• Add the cooking oil up to the level of the salt
• Pour a few drops of your favorite aromatherapy oil
• Wrap the match stick with cotton to serve as the wick, like in a candle
• Jab the matchstick in the center of the glass with salt and oil, exposing the cotton-wrapped part
• Kindle your oil lamp

Now you have your very own aromatherapy oil lamp. You no longer have to buy expensive aromatherapy or scented candles. A very convenient and safer way to relax at home.
