To use the oil burner, fill the dish at the top of the ceramic burner with tap water and place a few drops of your favorite Aromae Essential Oils into the water. Place a tea light candle into the bottom of the oil burner & light it with a match. As the water and essential oils evaporate, the aroma of the essential oils fill the room.
