I would also love to have that recipe as the oil sold all are made with Paraffin, which is not good for our lungs. (Amer. Lung Assoc.). I love oil lamps but do not use because of that. Thanks!

Unless you have a REALLY OLD lamp... todays (last 70 years) lamps

use Kerosene in one form or another; at least that I am aware of.

Not exactly something you can 'make' at home.

I was WRONG!

You can use most any oil in an old kerosene type lamp!!

In fact you don't even need the old lamp. I just made one in

a jar with a cotton wick, piece of pumice stone (they float) and

OLIVE OIL.

No recipe and nothing fancy but it works just fine.

Just google "olive oil" lamp and you will find lots of info.

Or go to Lehmans and get the parts to make a fancy one. ;)
