I explain why a Lampe Berger is a smart thing to own and how to use it to clean, purify, and scent the air in your home or office.
What is a Lampe Berger?
The Lampe Berger was created in the 1890s by chemist Maurice Berger. He designed the lamp to use “catalytic combustion” to capture and destroy airborne bacteria. These lamps were initially used primarily to disinfect the air in hospitals and mortuaries but eventually became popular with consumers. Lampe Berger lamps come in many decorative styles and with myriad fragrance choices. You may have seen these decorative lamps in stores and wondered what they were. Now you know!!!
Why a Lampe Berger is a smart thing to own.
I absolutely love my Lampe Berger lamps. I’ve been using them for over a decade and couldn’t live without mine. Although many think it is simply for fragrance, it has many other benefits. Here are the top reasons why a Lampe Berger is a smart thing to own.
- You can reduce and/or eliminate offensive odors in the air in as little as 20 minutes.
- You can reduce airborne viruses and bacteria~especially when guests are over~by burning the Lampe Berger.
- You can use Lampe Bergers for home decor. A lamp placed on a stack of books or atop a small table looks lovely.
- Lampe Berger lamps last forever; only fragrance oils need to be replaced.
- Replacement parts (wicks, wick caps) for Lampe Berger are easy to find on amazon.
