I love essential oils. I use them all of the time. I normally use essential oil diffusers to disperse them throughout the room. This light is different. It’s a light/fragrance lamp. You can use it without the plate, as just a nice accent lamp/nightlight. This lamp comes with a 35W halogen bulb, and a glass plate. The power cord is attached. You can use it with or without the plate. It is not recommended to leave the plate on longer than 8 hours. It does get hot. It is also not recommended to place oil on the plate if it’s already hot. The light does get warm to the touch. Little ones might burn themselves on it. This would be something I would recommend placing on a counter top, away from the edge, if you have little ones, or inquisitive pets. It doesn’t feel hot to me. I can wrap my hand completely around it. I can also lift the plate up, and hold it on the palm of my hand when heated up. It is ok to use essential oils on this unit. I did some research to make sure it was healthy to do, and it’s fine. Only use pure essential oils, for healthy benefits. It is a nice, all natural way to freshen up your home. Most store bought air fresheners are so unhealthy for you. Right now I have lemongrass on my plate. I like to use Lavender and Eucalyptus a lot, as well. You also want to make sure the plate is cooled off before washing it. Otherwise, you will have a cracked plate on your hands. The attached cord to this lamp is a 2 prong plug. So, it is handy to be plugged in anywhere. It also has the power/dimmer switch attached to it. It is placed approx. ½ way down the cord. The cord is just under 4 feet long. The turn knob is pretty cool. It is a lot larger than I am used to. It is so easy to turn, and dim or brighten the light. You can turn it on and off here as well. The lamp has a honeycomb like pattern built into it It throws a really pretty light pattern. I received it in pink, but they currently have it available in purple as well. The unit is made well. It’s thick and solid, not easily broken. I placed about 5 drops of oil on the plate at a time. It lasts for a few hours that way, which is a good amount of time. With the plate on it, it is only 4 ½” tall. So, it’s a very convenient size. I love it as a nightlight. It’s a really pretty light.
I was afforded the opportunity to review Innovation Product’s Electric Fragrance Oil Lamp, Essential Oil Diffuser with 35 Watt Halogen Bulb and Touch Dimmer Switch, at a reduced cost, in exchange for an unbiased and honest review.
