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!

use Kerosene in one form or another; at least that I am aware of.
Not exactly something you can 'make' at home.

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. ;)
