This unique electric fragrance oil lamp is designed to fill a room with the scent of your choice. Unlike candle based oil warmers, you are in control. Use the dimmer to adjust the halogen light to warm the oil a little or a lot depending on how much scent or light you want in the area. The fragrance oil lamp can serve as a nightlight, or create a relaxing mood with soft light and sweet smelling scents. This lamp is safe to use in any area of the home since there is no flame. You can adjust the heat level to be safe for any area. Simply place fragrance oil or a wax tart onto the small glass plate on the top of the lamp, plug it in and adjust the dimmer. Always let the lamp cool before adding more oil or wax to the glass plate. This oil warmer uses a 35W halogen bulb (included). Replacements are available at most hardware stores and on Amazon. Warmer is made from durable plastic. Color is white, but when the bulb is on, it turns a golden color (pictured) due to a colored filter inside.
