We have these larger soap stone oil burners in our Natroma shop.

These are handmade products, that come from India.  Soapstone is a reasonably soft mineral, so this allows it to be carved or turned (the process is similar to wood turning).  The body of each burner is created from a solid piece of soapstone, hollowing out the centre and then carving designs into the sides.  The top dish is carved from another piece of soapstone, so it will be similar but may not be an exact match in colour.  

When you purchase an oil burner, it's always a good idea to purchase one that has a good sized bowl - too many are shallow or small and this means they'll dry up quickly.  It's easier to use a large bowled oil burner since they hold a greater volume of water and - so it won't use up the water so quickly and there's less chance that you'll overheat your essential oils.  We like these larger soapstone oil burners because they have a deep bowl so do not dry out so easily.

When using a oil burner, you should add water to the bowl before lighting the candle and then float drops of essential oils on the water surface.  We usually suggest no more than 6 drops of oil (in total) each time.  You can burn a single essential oil on it's own, but it's much nicer to create your own essential oil blends.  You can choose any combination of essential oils, but it's usually best to limit to 2 or 3 at the same time otherwise your aromatherapy blend can become quite muddled.  Always (always!) write down the number of drops of each essential oil....because you'll hate yourself if you create a beautiful aromatherapy fragrance and then can't remember which essential oils were used! 

We'd recommend that you fill your oil burner with water before you light your candle.  If you find it is beginning to run out of water you can top it up with a small jug (something like the small container that comes with your iron) and fill it with hot water so you don't crack the burner (this is less likely with a soapstone oil burner, but we'd still advise you to be careful when the bowl is hot).  Try to anticipate re-filling the bowl before it's needed - it's never a good idea to let it burn dry.   After use, the bowl can be wiped out with a soft cloth - try to do this so the essential oils do not leave a residue on the surface (otherwise the natural stone may slowly become discoloured by the essential oils).
