Oil for Glass Oil Candles

Heard the expression? “You get what you pay for?” This motto certainly applies to the lamp oil one decides to use when fuelling one’s candles.

It's easy to claim that the lamp oil one is selling is smokeless and odourless, but to what extent this is true is a matter of science.

Were assuming first that one is looking for a smokeless type lamp oil as if one goes for the general kerosene or paraffin types out in the marketplace, these are the scenarios one is faced with:

  1.       Bad oil will damage the wick/fibre that is a major part of the combustion system for igniting the glass oil candle
  2.       There will be smoke…lots of it. and lots of smoke is toxic particularly when burnt in confined areas
  3.       Highly flammable oil or what is referred to as a lamp oil that has a ‘low flashpoint’ does not take much energy to ignite it and therefore burns far more quickly.
  4.       The quicker the oil burns; the more it costs.

GCS emphasises the above and more so combines the type of fibre for it uses for its table lighting units with its lamp oil.

GCS uses a high quality smokeless, odourless lamp oil with a ‘high flashpoint’; a combination that maximises burning time whilst producing unnoticeable smoke. This is a far healthier alternative.

We are unique in that we offer a smokeless citronella oil.

We also offer to colour your oil at no extra charge. In fact, if you are very particular about the colour you want, send us a link to a colour type and shade you prefer and we will make accordingly.

For more information on our ‘burning times’ see our “CALCULATORS”.

Depending on the glass candle in question; the way it’s intended to burn and look, each glass candle we offer has a different burning time to the other.

If you burn a lot of candles and cost is a huge consideration for example, it may well pay you to scroll through these calculators to work out what your ‘cost of lighting’ will be.

Regardless, because our glass candles are reusable (i.e. burning them with the correct oil, of course) there will always be a return on one’s investment in them; at some point.

GCS offers wholesale prices to its customers who shop online and deliver anywhere in South Africa as well as for export purposes.

Our oil is suited to both the type of reusable glass candles we sell as well as our plastic lanterns.
