Aro­mather­apy’s his­tory as a form of med­i­cal treat­ment dates back 6,000 years for civ­i­liza­tions as early as the an­cient Chi­nese, In­di­ans and Egyp­tians.

These peo­ple used con­cen­trated ex­tracts of “es­sen­tial oils” taken from plants for var­i­ous spir­i­tual, rit­ual or med­i­cal pur­poses.

Lampe Berger Paris to­day con­tin­ues this ageold tra­di­tion. It brings to the ta­ble a unique in­door air pu­rifi­ca­tion and per­fum­ing lamp that cleanses the air in your home and pro­vides a long-last­ing fra­grance.

This lamp is the lat­est evo­lu­tion of a unique tech­nol­ogy in­vented in 1898 by phar­macy dis­penser and com­pany founder Mau­rice Berger.

He in­vented a sys­tem of “dif­fu­sion by catal­y­sis” that he used to pu­rify the air in hos­pi­tal wards. Thanks to Berger’s ad­di­tion of fra­grances to his patented sys­tem, the lamps soon found their way to pri­vate use in homes.

The modern it­er­a­tion of these lamps makes use of a spe­cial burner that dif­fuses dif­fer­ent fra­grances through­out a room. This im­proves air qual­ity by elim­i­nat­ing odor-caus­ing mol­e­cules in the air through a process called “cat­alytic ox­i­da­tion”.

It is able to break down these mol­e­cules thanks to its ce­ramic cat­alytic burner. The odor­ous mol­e­cules get at­tracted to the heat gen­er­ated by the catal­y­sis and are then bro­ken down and pre­vented from re­com­bin­ing.

By re­mov­ing these mol­e­cules, the lamp elim­i­nates bac­te­ria and un­pleas­ant odors. The process also has the added ben­e­fits of de­com­pos­ing sec­ond-hand smoke and re­pelling in­sects such as dust mites and fleas.

Burning these lamps for just 20 to 30 min­utes can also add fra­grance to your home for hours.

Get­ting the best out of these Lampe Berger de­vices is sim­ple. Start off by filling them up with one of the com­pany’s fra­grant oils un­til the lamp is two-thirds full. In­sert the wick, let it soak up the oil, then light it. Blow out the flame after two min­utes. Then put on the vented cap.

The heat com­ing off the top of the lamp and the ac­com­pa­ny­ing fra­grance com­ing out of it should be in­di­ca­tion that the process was a suc­cess.

Re­move the vented cap after 20 min­utes and put on a solid cap to stop the lamp from us­ing more oil.

Cus­tomers can to­day choose from over 40 dif­fer­ent se­lec­tions of these na­ture-in­spired fra­grances–the most pop­u­lar of which in­clude Ocean Breeze, Orange Cin­na­mon and Win­ter­wood–along­side var­i­ous lamp burner styles and shapes to cre­ate a own per­son­al­ized at­mos­phere.

Lamp mod­els range from sim­ple, cu­bic mod­els to more elab­o­rate ones in­spired by baroque and Zen de­sign. The com­pany also pro­vides spe­cial edi­tion lamps signed by some of the most well­known names in con­tem­po­rary de­sign.

These air-pu­ri­fy­ing lamps en­joy an in­ter­na­tional distribution in 7,000 sales out­lets in 56 coun­tries around the world. They have re­cently been made avail­able in the do­mes­tic mar­ket thanks to PT One Com­mu­nity In­done­sia and can be pur­chased at the com­pany’s stores through­out In­done­sia.
