Nothing sets the mood like candles, right? Oil lamps are a nice alternative, or complement, to the classic candles. You may not think there's much to learn about filling and using an oil lamp, but there are some tips and tricks to make the job easy.
Before your light the lamp, there are two things to keep in mind.
- Adjust the wick to a height of about 2-3 mm, to avoid the oil lamp to soot. If it does, the wick must be shortened.
- The wick must also be moistened with oil before lighting. 10-15 minutes of soaking should do the job.
