Taigalamp has a live flame that is created using pure mineral oil that doesn´t smoke, soot and is almost completely odorless. The oil comes in an oilcell that burns for up to 40 hours and after the oilcell is empty, you just switch to a new one. That way the lamp and the surroundings remain clean.
What really is the difference between Taigalamp and a traditional candle is the safety and cleanliness it provides. If the lamp happens to tip over, the metallic safety sleeve on top of the oil cell extinguishes the flame immediately.
Taigalamp is recommended by The Finnish National Rescue Association (SPEK).
