Lamp Oils

Light of Mine Rock Candles and Lamp Oils

Our oil burning candles are actually natural stones that have shallow fuel bowls cemented underneath and a hold drilled through them for a wick.  Our larger glass fuel bowls underneath hold up to 1/4 cup of lamp oil and burn about 6 to 8 hours before refill is needed.  Our smaller fuel bowls burn about 2 to 3 hours before refill is needed.

Our rock candles burn citronella and tiki torch fuels outside for mosquito control, and paraffin and lamp oils for indoor decorating.  The burn time depends on the flame's height, wind, and the type of lamp oils you use. Our Firefly Fuel lamp oils burn longer and cleaner than any other fuel we've found. You can buy them on our website in pure, citronella, and eucalyptus.  We also recommend Lamplight Ultra-Pure Paraffin lamp oil that burns clean with a small flame.  Note that our oil burning candles do not heat the oil, so we don't recommend them for aromatherapy. Also, you always want to use up one type of fuel entirely before adding another.

Some of our rock candles have multiple fuel bowls to accommodate multiple wicks. If there's more than one, fill all the bowls with lamp oils and adjust your wick height to create even flame heights.  You can adjust the wick height by pulling it up and down in the glass wick tube. 

We use braided fiberglass wicks that last indefinitely with proper care. Be sure to keep your candle out of direct rain and sunlight to prevent mildew and dry rot. You'll need to empty the fuel bowl if rainwater ever gets in to help prevent mildew. Just pull the wick out, pour out the rainwater, and let it dry before burning again.

Each candle also comes with a small funnel for refilling and an instruction card with all the info you need.  You can always contact us at any time with questions you may have.  We want you to love your candle as much as we do!
