Dimensions 115 mm tall, base 85mm diameter, bowl 90 mm diameter.
We say:These large black soapstone oil burners are hand carved with a delightful leaf pattern. The oil burner feels quite substantial and features a larger bowl than the smaller oil burners we also stock and similar in size to the large Celtic oil burner.
You would normally place some water in the top bowl, light the candle beneath (tea light) and then tip a few drops of your chosen essential oil onto the water. Then as the water heats, the fragrance of the oils is released gently into the room.
Please ensure there is either water or soy melt in the bowl at all times when tea light is alight.
Black - Protection, mystery, transformation
As a colour, black reflects no light in the visible spectrum, which is why it’s often had a strong association with the unknown, with magic and mystery.
Although black can be viewed as a dark, negative and forbidding colour, it also has very positive meanings too. Due to its deep, black and empty look, black can be viewed as restful and something which can transform ideas or possibilities. For example, used in meditations, you can drift into the black emptiness and emerge once more full of hope and possibility.
If you enjoy working with gemstones and crystals, then the black stones, such as jet, onyx, obsidian and black tourmaline, are excellent as grounding stones. They also have protective energies and can be used to help clear negativity and bad energy.
In the Western world, black is the colour of funerals, as people wear black and use black hearses to transport coffins. The commonly associated garb of witches is a black cloak, accompanied by a black cauldron, out of which they conjured up magic and mystery. For Native Americans, black was viewed in favourable terms, as it was the colour of the earth, out of which life and crops grow.
When worn as a colour, black can generate a protective feel, helping you blend into the crowd, yet when coupled with white for formal attire, it can also help create an air of elegance and sophistication.
