As Canadians, we spend close to 90% of our time inside; at home, at work and in recreational environments. Most people, however, are unaware of the effects that poor indoor air quality can have on their health.
Worse still, many of us spend hundreds of dollars yearly on so called air freshener products that only mask odours and that may be negatively impacting the air quality of their homes further. You might be wondering if it is possible to get rid of unwanted odours without filling your home with smoke, soot, and potentially toxic chemicals.
What If I told you there was a product out there that can not only rid your home of unwanted odours but will also purify the air in your home?
Unlike other products, Lampe Berger destroys unwanted odours and diffuses long lasting fragrances and also purifies the air – giving you better air quality by removing air pollutant molecules. The fragrances are developed meticulously with your well-being in mind. They are also systematically tested by an independent laboratory to guarantee that no BTEX substances are found during diffusion.
I was sent a Prune Quadri lamp along with a bottle of Ocean Breeze scented home fragrance to try out in my own home. The Quadri lamp is just one of many beautiful and stylishly designed lamps in the Lampe Berger collection. The lamps come in a wide variety of styles, designs, and materials; there is literally a lamp to suite any taste and room.
While the Lampe Berger story started in 1898 as a solution to purifying the air in hospitals but in the 1930s the Lampe Berger became popular in homes around the world. It actually became a collector’s item, each lamp being associated with a designer and major manufacturer such as Cristal de Baccarat, Cristalleries de Saint Louis, Emile Gallé, René Lalique. Even the top porcelain producers of the 1950s, Coco Chanel, Jean Cocteau, Colette and Picasso each had their own Lampe Berger design.
Today the collection comprises of over 100 lamps!
The lamps, of course, wouldn’t be functional without the Lampe Berger home fragrances, and there is a wide variety among the 50 different aromas available to perfectly fragrance your home. They also offer a neutral fragrance which removes unwanted odours, without fragrancing. It can also be used to dilute the intensity of other fragrances if you prefer a lighter scent.
Using the lamp is easy. Fill your lamp no more than 2/3 full with your Lampe Berger Home Fragrance. On the first use of the burner wait 20 minutes with the cap on.
Light the Burner and wait for 2 minutes.
Next blow out the flame and replace the protective cover while your air is purified and fragranced. Leave it for up to 20 minutes before replacing the cover to stop the burning.
The lamp works by generating heat in the exclusive patented catalytic burner which attracts and eliminates noxious molecules through oxidation with a temperature of 500°C/932°F. It is surrounded by a lower temperature core which diffuses the fragrance.
I used my lamp for the first time after I was unable to keep the windows open throughout the house thanks to poor weather. Once the burner was going my home was filled with a lovely fragrance but it wasn’t over-powering and once the burning process was complete my home was left smelling fresh; a perfect complement to basic home cleaning and maintenance.
