These essential oil burners began on my potter's wheel using a buff colored stoneware clay. After some carving and the usual trimming and glazing, they became a favorite for providing not only a little light, but also the fragance of essential oils.
To use, just fill the upper bowl with water. Add 3-4 drops of the essential oil of your choice. Light a votive candle placed in the "cave" below the bowl. In a matter of minutes the aroma from the oil will be released into the air as the water warms.
Keep in mind the flame will heat the upper bowl. So take care when touching after burning.
Since the water will evaporate over time, it's best not to let the bowl get completely dry.
Monitor the use of your burner as you would any open flame or candle.
