10X more powerful than a candle and does it without the flame!
Sophia Gift Set includes: User guide, funnel, standard stone/wick, snuff cap, 16oz fragrance and lamp. Choose your 16 ounce free fragrance above.
The stone: To keep your Sophia Fragrance Lamp perfoming at its best, you should replace the stone every three to six months. See below for wick maintenance.
Why does our lamp disperse so good? Why is it safer than a candle? Well, the answer is catalytic combustion. Catalytic combustion is used in industry to consume harmful combustibles. One common known example is the catalytic converter in automobiles.
We have taken the unique properties of these catalysts and used them to create our Sohpia Stone. One of the most amazing properties is the catalyst’s ability to consume a combustible without igniting it. This means that once the flame is blown out it cannot ignite any combustible liquid or gas. What does this mean? It means that if our Sophia Lamp should accidentally be broken, the catalyst is burning at too low a temperature to ignite the fragrance.
Candles have a flame temperature of around 927 degrees Celsius or 1700 degrees Fahrenheit. Our Sophia Stone burns at approximately one fourth the temperature of a candle. So, not only does our Sophia Lamp out perfume any candle it is also much safer.
"My wife loves to burn candles, but they never seem to spread their fragrance far. But once we got one of the Sophia Lamps, all I can say is, "Wow!" It really spreads the smell of fragrance everywhere in our home! I am quite pleased, as is my wife. I will be recommending these to all our friends. I wish I had known about these years ago. Before, I had wasted all that money on candles."

What some of us think here at ProGroom:
Kitti, Sara and Donna like the Gingerbread Spice Cake and the Cream Brulee. Why? Because every time someone comes to their home they always ask us "Are you baking a cake or cookies? It smells so good in your home". We use too purchase candles and incense, but not anymore. There is no way we will go back to candles and/or incense. No way!! We can light up my lamp, blow it out after 2 minutes and the aroma stays in my home for 3 days. No flame, no smoke, just aroma in all rooms. These aroma lamps are absolutely amazing.
Maxine likes the Cream Brulee and Gingerbread Spice Cake because her home always smells like she's baking cookies. She also likes the Cashmere.
Steve and Vonnie likes the Mediterranean Fig, Sweet Pea, Vanilla, Oriental Spice and Gingerbread Spice Cake.

Why is it safer than a candle?
Well, the answer is catalytic combustion. Catalytic combustion is used in industry to consume harmful
combustibles. One common known example is the catalytic converter in automobiles.
We have taken the unique properties of these catalysts and used them to create our Sophia stone. One of
the most amazing properties is the catalyst's ability to consume a combustible without igniting it. This
means that once the flame is blown out, it cannot ignite any combustible liquid or gas. What does this
mean? It means that if out Sophia Lamp accidentally be broken, the catalyst is burning at too low a
temperature to ignite the fragrance.
Candles have a flame temperature of around 1700 degrees F. The stone burns at approximately
one fourth the temperature of a candle. So, not only does our Sophia Lamp out perfume any candle, it is
also much safer.
Setting Up Your Sophia Lamp
There are four basic parts to the Sophia Lamp:
1. Decorative container
2. Open-air cap; used to cover stone while it is dispersing fragrance
3. Solid cap; used to cover stone to extinguish it and while not in use
On the first use of the Sophia Lamp, you will need to take the decorative container and remove the solid cap. Pour you
Sophia's lamp fragrance into the decorative container and do not fill more than 1/2 with fragrance. Over filling
will cause poor performance and may even cause the stone to stop dispersing.
After putting in Sophia's Lamp Fragrance, place the stone/wick into the decorative container. Now
place the solid cap on the lamp. The wick now needs time to wick-up. This will take about 15 to 20 minutes.
If you do not intend to use your lamp right away, then place the open air cap over the solid cap. This is the
way you should keep your Sophia Lamp when not in use.
Once the stone/wick has had time to wick-up make sure both caps are removed. CAUTION: When lighting
lamp, make sure you place it away from any combustible materials. Place it on a table with nothing close to
it or above it. Never leave flame unattended. Take a butane lighter or match and light the stone. Hold the
flame of the butane lighter to the stone until you see that the stone is producing a flame. Once the flame
starts, let it burn for two to three minutes. You should notice a flame of 5 to 6 inches at the beginning. As the
catalytic function of the stone begins to work the flame will get smaller.
After 2 to 3 minutes has passed or the flame is much smaller, blow out the flame. Now place only the open-air cap over the stone/wick. Your Sophia Fragrance Lamp is now dispersing fragrance. Remember that the Lamp works after the flame is extinguished.
The flame is to heat the stone and needs to be blown out after 2-3 minutes.
The burner should last one to two years or approximately 250 lightings.
Once in a while you will come across a stubborn burner that will not stay lit or hot after the flame is extinguished
or it becomes clogged or blackened at the top.
For a New Burner:
Remove the wick assembly from the lamp.
Submerge the head of the wick in alcohol for two minutes to clean the head.
Then place it on paper towels to let it dry out completely.
This will usually take about 24 hours.
Go through the new burner process again by allowing the wick to soak for 20-30 minutes before lighting.
If the burner is old, it probably needs to be replaced.
You can prolong the life of your burner by periodically burning approximately 2-3 oz. of 91% -99% isopropyl alcohol
through your lamp just as you would fragrance, this helps clean your wick.
You can change fragrances by letting the wick dry on a paper towel.
It is okay to go from fragrance to fragrance without drying the wick; the fragrance will blend until the fuel in the wick is used.
It is also okay to mix fragrances.
You may create your own favorite scent this way.
In the dispersing mode, the Sophia lamp will disperse fragrance with no flame. You will notice heat. This
is the catalytic action at work. The temperature of the stone will reach around 400 degrees F. For this
reason, we recommend that you place your Sophia lamp out of reach of children and pets. The open air
cap will get hot to the touch, but not so hot that you can't remove it.
One ounce of Sophia's Lamp Fragrance will disperse for more than one hour. The Sophia Fragrance
Lamp works so well that it can completely fragrance a normal size room in 35-40 minutes. You will notice
placement of the Sophia lamp will have a lot to do with how well it covers an area. Air flow in homes is
usually dictated by the type and placement of the central air unit. So, you might have to experiment with
different placements of your Sophia lamp to get the coverage you desire.
Sophia fragrance lamps work so well you will still smell the fragrance after the lamp has been put out. The
chemical make up of each fragrance and essential oil will dictate how long it lingers. Some can actually be
noticed when reentering your home.
When you are ready to stop the Sophia lamp from dispersing fragrance, just remove the open air cap (caution, use a napkin or cloth if it is too hot) and place the solid cap over the stone/wick. Then place the open-air cap over the top of the solid cap. Always keep the solid cap on when not in use. This will help keep any remaining fragrance oil from evaporating.
Make sure you Sophia Fragrance Lamp is extinguished by capping with solid cap for at least 30 minutes. This will allow it to cool completely.
First, remove the stone/wick by picking up on the small collar. Lay it on a paper towel and let it dry our for
30-40 minutes. This will help keep the two fragrances from blending. Make sure there is no remaining oil in
the lamp. If there is, use a funnel to pour it back into its original bottle. Now you are ready to put in your new
Sophia's Lamp Fragrance.
