Lampe Berger is an amazing product for removing odors while fragrancing the air. To use: 1. Place your Lampe Berger on a stable surface. 2. Fill your lamp with the Lampe Berger fragrance oil of your choice. Blend with Neutral to soften any fragrance you find too strong. 3. Insert the Lampe Berger wick into the lamp completely. When using for the first time, let the wick soak for 20 minutes before using. 4. Light the wick. After 2 minutes blow out the flame. Your Lampe Berger is now working to remove odors, purify and fragrance the air. 5. Put the vented cover on the lamp. While the lamp is working, there is no smoke or flame, just a little heat coming off the wick burner. 6. Once your Lampe Berger has removed odors and added enough fragrance (usually about 45 minutes) carefully remove the vented cover and place the solid cap back on the Lampe Berger. The quicker you replace the solid cap, the longer your fragrance oil will last.
