Your Ashleigh & Burwood Fragrance Lamp is more than simply a beautiful ornament sending out pretty scents. It’s a unique and powerful unit, and with the right care, your lamp will last well. To help you get the most out of your lamp, and keep it working at its best, let us guide you through everything from the assembly to choosing the right oils.

The science behind it all

What makes Ashleigh & Burwood Fragrance Lamps so innovative is their burning style. With an intricate catalytic burner system, your lamp not only perfumes the air, but cleans it, too. The airflow mechanism leeches away all those nasty, harmful bacteria molecules and pollutants from your room before making the fresh air smell fantastic.

Whether it’s tobacco, pets or any other kind of stale odour, you can be assured your lamp banishes these less-savoury smells before brightening up your room. The result is something aesthetically-pleasing yet healthy.

Meet your lamp

First, let’s get you familiar with all the different parts of your lamp. It’s not too complicated, but each part is delicate – you should always handle your lamp with care.

  1. The Crown: right at the top of the bottle, this beautiful little crown-shaped piece covers the hot stone inside the lamp, so you don’t burn yourself.
  2. The Snuffer-Cap: this works like an off-switch to stop the fragrance evaporating when you’re not using your lamp. It helps get the most out of your out your bottle.
  3. The Retainer: this clamp holds a number of important pieces together, so avoid touching this if at all possible.
  4. The Stone: the star attraction of your lamp! The unique ceramic material allows the lamp to work, and you should be careful to avoid touching this stone.
  5. The Collar: without the collar, there’s nothing to support the stone. It also holds the wick in place.
  6. The Wick: this carries the fragrance to the stone.
  7. The Neck: this piece attaches to the ‘body’ of the lamp, or the part which stores the fragrance, and supports other important parts.
We advise that you never take any of the assembly elements (retainer, wick, stone and collar) apart without proper guidance. If you experience issues with your Fragrance Lamp, such as broken parts or issues with the stone, please see the guidance issued here.

The fragrance oil

Decisions, decisions…there are so many gorgeous fragrances available that it’s difficult to pick a favourite. And, you don’t have to! You can mix any Ashleigh & Burwood fragrances together to create your own perfect custom blend. You can also neutralise stronger scents by purchasing the neutral oil. This means you can tailor the aroma to suit your mood and the sensitivities of any guests and family members.

Don’t use any other oil in your lamp other than Ashleigh & Burwood products, though. Other oils may damage the sensitive stone beyond repair. And with so many luscious scents to choose from, you don’t need to look anywhere else!

Fancy a change of scent? No problem. To change the fragrance when it suits you, simply empty out the old fragrance back into its bottle. Make sure the unit is switched off and cool before attempting to change the fragrance. If you spill any of the oil, let it burn out on the stone. Careful, though – too many spillages can potentially wear down the stone.

If you’re not going to be using the lamp for a while, you can empty the fragrance back into its bottle to preserve its potency and protect the unit from unnecessary wear and tear.

Ashleigh & Burwood is an ethical brand. No Ashleigh & Burwood fragrance oil is tested on animals, and all scents are composed of natural, natural identical materials and plant extracts. Each oil is made up of alcohol, the fragrance element itself, and water. You should seek medical advice if you notice irritation, however.

Filling the lamp

Now for the exciting part – filling up your lamp with fragrance! Before you open the bottle, make sure the unit is switched off and cool. Then, fill your lamp so it’s almost full – you don’t want any fragrance wasted and spilling over. If you do spill any fragrance, don’t worry. Simply pour what you can back into the bottle and give your lamp a wipe down with a clean cloth. You can use a little soap to remove the scent from your skin.

So, now you’ve added the fragrance. This is where you’ll need a little patience. Replace the wick and stone assembly unit carefully, then put the snuffer-cap back in place. Let the fragrance settle for a short time, about half an hour, before you turn the unit on. The wait will be worth it!

Keeping your lamp clean and damage-free

Amazingly, your lamp doesn’t need excessive cleaning. In fact, you shouldn’t let water or detergent near the inside of your unit. Water and other liquids which aren’t supposed to be there can damage essential parts and cause unnecessary wear and tear. Instead, all you need to do is clean the outside of your lamp with furniture or glass polish. The polish keeps the lamp body looking like new.

A word of warning – turn the lamp off before cleaning it, and make sure it’s cool to the touch. Keep the snuffer-cap securely fixed on so you don’t touch the stone. If you do find that you need to clean the stone, the wick, or some other delicate part of the assembly, we recommend you follow the guidance provided by Ashleigh & Burwood. You should contact them before attempting to clean any fragile elements – it’s all about keeping your lamp safe and long-lasting!
