16 FL OZ. ISOPROPYL ALCOHOL 91% VOL. (473 ml) (Do not use "ethyl" or any other type of alcohol.)
.3 OZ. OF FRAGRANCE OIL (8.86 ml) Add more oil if you want a stronger scent. Try adjusting by increasing fragrance oil at .1 oz. increments.
I buy the alcohol at Wal-Mart. The fragrance oil (.3 oz) equals 1 3/4 teaspoons. So far I have tried different brands of fragrance oils without any problems. I did discover that some oils are more potent than others and I had to dilute it with more alcohol. I add the oil right to the alcohol bottle and then label the bottle with the name of the fragrance. My friend bought her oil on E-bay and got a very good deal. She only uses one scent. Not like me, I have about ten different scents that I use. So far, I really like my fragrance lamp. I only have it but a few months. I'm wondering how long the stone will last. I guess time will tell. (12/07/2005)
I used a little bottle of the Christmas Joy oil, that someone had given me a couple of years ago, with 16 ozs. 91% alcohol from Walmart. It really smells nice. My price was about $1.00. (03/17/2006)

RE: Fragrance Lamp Fuel Recipe
I made the fuel just like the recipe 91% alcolol and fragrance with the fragrance. It works well the first light but the second light it does not. Does anyone know why? I am have to alternate the store brand and the homemade brand to keep the stone working. (03/30/2006)
