If you want a modern oil lamp, you don’t have to look for one in a shop you can make it using ‘Ms Dawn’s instructions. To make a fancy Olive Oil Lamp, she used old mason jars which are ideal to make all sorts of Lamps. She infused the contents with different ingredients such as pinecones, lemon, limes, oranges, vanilla beans to make it as beautiful as possible. The oil-based fuel usually gives a romantic dimmed light for several hours. The variations of the lamp guts are endless, so it’s only up to you imagination how you want your lamp to look like.
