A Safer Alternative to Candles {Giveaway}

I was a candle girl and often had many going in my house until one day as I sat nursing my little guy I heard a crackling noise. I got up thinking maybe the stove was left on, but found nothing. I went back to sit down and the crackling was getting louder. As I made my way down our hallway I noticed that my wall by the front door was on FIRE! I quickly sprung to action putting the fire out while feeling confused about how this could happen. My glass candle holder had exploded and caused a fire. I was very hesitant with candles after that and pretty much anything with an open flame was not used in my house.

I was first introduced to Lampe Berger last year, and knowing that it was a safer alternative to candles, I decided to test it out. There are three key functions of the Lampe Berger and they are:

  • To clean the air by eliminating bad odors .
  • To fragrance the air durably .
  • To decorate the home

Lampe Berger
Upon learning what my beautiful lamp could do I was more than excited to test it out.

My verdict: I loved this safer alternative to candles and so did my guests. In fact, one loved it so much I gave it to her because I wanted to share the love.
I found the use of the product to be super easy. First, you need to fill the lamp roughly half way with the home fragrance scent of your choice. Then, let the wick sit in the fragrance for about 20 minutes. The lamp comes with a funnel, eliminating any chance of the fragrance being spilled. I appreciate this feature because I don’t have the steadiest of hands. Next, you replace the burner and wick. Lastly, you simply light the burner and let it burn for 2 minutes then blow out the flame. (This is the best part for me, as I mentioned that open flame makes me uncomfortable.) Once Ppacing the lid back on, the unit dispenses the beautiful scent into your home.
Lampe Berger suggests that you have your lamp diffusing scent for 20 minutes. The recommended  maximum time is based on a one minute per cubic metre, in other words use for 20 minutes in a 20sqm (51.60ft2) room. Once the lamp has been diffusing for the recommended time simply apply the stopper and you are done.
Often I visit people’s houses and are met with a very strong smell or scent when walking in. Don’t get me wrong, it is not stinky by any means, but I just can not handle strong scents. I often sit there with a headache because I just cannot handle a scent that is overpowering. Lampe Berger home fragrances offered me that gentle but appealing scent. You know it is there lingering but it is not too strong.
Lampe Berger also offers a home fragrance called So Neutral that deodorizes but does not release any scented fragrance. This is also great to use to if you wanted to decrease the scent of any other home fragrance. (Please note that this is the only fragrance that can be mixed with any other scent) When used in between 2 fragrances, it optimizes the functioning of the Air Pur System  burner as it cleans it and increases its lifespan.
Knowing that I have the option to have my home smell great, but also provide my family and guests with cleaner air makes this a product I will use all the time. I believe this would make a great gift for just about any occasion or even a just because gift. With 60 lamps and 40 fragrances available all year round and various others being added you are sure to find the perfect gift for everyone on your list.

Prize: A LAMPE BERGER Starter Kit including a lamp, burner, 180ml home fragrance + 180ml of Neutral (a value of $48)
Open to: Canadian Residents only
