Pentagram Oil Burner
Pentacle - Soapstone Oil Burner - Purple - Measures 3-1/2" x 2-5/8"
The pentacle is a five-pointed star, or pentagram, contained within a circle. The five points of the star represent the four classical elements, along with a fifth element, which is typically either Spirit or Self, depending on your tradition. The pentacle is probably the best-known symbol of Wicca today, and is often used in jewelry and other designs. Typically, a pentacle is traced in the air during Wiccan rituals, and in some traditions it is used as a designation of degree. It is also considered a symbol of protection, and is used in warding in some Pagan traditions. The ancient practice of soapstone carving dates back more than 3000 years.
Each burner is hand carved, painted and polished from soapstone. Burners come with glass oil bowls which can be removed for quick and easy cleaning. Soapstone is a natural heat resistant material that warms quickly and evenly. These lovely hand crafted soapstone are for use with small tea light candles.
To use a candle diffuser, place the diffuser on a safe platform that can tolerate heat, away from anything flammable. Fill the bowl (reservoir) with water to the top. Add a few drops of your favorite, pure essential oil or a blend of pure essential oils. Place the tea light inside the diffuser or on the lower platform and light the candle.
Minor color and design variations are possible in hand crafted and natural stone products.
If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected.
You will need to add more water to last the life of the tea light candle. This diffuser is perfect for short but powerful bursts of aromatically infused scent in a room where the diffuser will be supervised.
TIP: Instead of filling the reservoir with water, use beeswax or leftover pieces of natural, unscented candle wax. The wax lasts a very long time (days/weeks) and you don't have to worry about water evaporating too fast.
Caution! The whole diffuser gets HOT when in use and may take a little while to cool down. Do not move a lit candle diffuser.
