Catalytic Scent Lampe Fuel

Recipe by crowmama
READY IN: 5mins
YIELD: 12 oz


  • 12
    ounces rubbing alcohol (90% isopropyl-alcohol)
  • 12
    teaspoon scented oil (essential oil)


  • IMPORTANT: You must use a 90% strength isopropyl, or rubbing, alcohol. The 70% isopropyl alcohol contains too much water in the solution, and will not burn. You can find the 90% strength at drugstores on the same shelf next to the 70% solution.
  • ALSO: Use the best undiluted quality oil as you can -- to check for purity, place one drop on a sheet of clean paper. The drop should completey evaporate if the essential oil is pure. If it leaves a greasy, oily spot, select another oil.
  • CONVERSION NOTE: I measure my essential oils in ML, not OZ or other units. 1/2 teaspoon equals approximately 2ML.
  • Open a 12oz bottle of 90% isopropyl alcohol.
  • Add the essential oil.
  • Screw the cap back on. Shake to mix, and you're done!
