How to use an oil lamp:
- Roll the wick in between your palms until it becomes thin and long. Gently thread the wick through the top opening hole of the long wick tube and pull the wick down from the other side.
- Leave about ½ inch of the wick exposed on top of the hole. Fill your lamp at least ⅔ of the way up with oil (any oil such as sesame, vegetable oil is okay) and then light the exposed wick with a match.
- You may use tweezers to adjust the wick (the more you pull the wick up, the greater the flame) or to gently remove pieces of used wick. Refill the oil and adjust the wick as needed.
