Firstly you need to add water to the bowl that is on top of the oil burner, then add a few drops of essential oil of your choice to the water. Then place a lit tea light candle underneath, this will cause the water and oil mix to evaporate causing the aromas to fill the room.
Enjoy the aroma and any health benefits that come with it! You should make sure that you do not leave the bowl to go completely dry with the candle still lit otherwise you may get a burned aroma, and smoke.
After use, they should be cleaned but only after it has completely cooled down to avoid the risk of burning yourself as these can get extremely hot from just a little candle.
To remove grease you will need to clean thoroughly with a damp cloth and a washing up liquid detergent if it has stubborn burnt oil you may need to use baking powder and water to help rid of the residues.
