Pour Lampe Berger fragrance into your lampe no more than 1/2 way.
Insert the wick into the lamp, put the little cap on it and leave it to soak for 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, remove the cap, light the burner and let it flame for two minutes, then blow out the flame. Now the lamp is working to remove household odors and put fragrance into the air. Place the grill (large top with slits in it) over the burner.
Simply replace the little cap over the hot burner when you are ready to "turn it off." This will snuff out the burner safely.
See the pictures, right, for a visual guide to these instructions.
You can let Lampe Berger burn until all the fragrance is gone. It will "stop" when it runs out of fragrance. To start it again, repeat the steps above (refill with fragrance and make sure wick is soaked before lighting.) A dry wick will not light, and a hot burner will scorch your fingers, so let it cool before you handle it.
You can mix fragrances if you like, but please only use Lampe Berger home fragrance in your Lampe Berger lampe to avoid ruining your wick. (Too late? We sell Lampe Berger wicks.)
To switch from one fragrance to another, make sure burner is cool enough to touch. Remove burner/wick. Use your funnel to pour remaining fragrance from the lamp back into its bottle. Pour desired new fragrance into lamp. Insert wick. (If wick is dry, repeat steps at the beginning of these instructions.) Light, let flame, then blow out flame. At first, you'll smell the first fragrance as it burns through, then the second fragrance will appear.
Don't fill your lampe over your great-grandmother's colonial heritage antique table. Lampe Berger fragrance is alcohol based and will ruin the finish of varnished or painted surfaces if it spills on them. A ceramic or glass dish under your lampe will catch and drips that happen when you pour in the fragrance.
For more information, please refer to the instruction booklet that comes with every Lampe Berger Home Fragrance kit.
Never leave your burning Lampe Berger unattended!
