Reduce Pollen at Home with Fragrance Lamps

Reduce Pollen at Home with Fragrance Lamps

Every hay fever sufferer is all too familiar with the misery that comes when the air is filled with pollen. This airborne irritant can trigger a range of uncomfortable reactions like itchy eyes, sneezing, and headaches. Fortunately, Ashleigh & Burwood have discovered an innovative solution to help reduce pollen at home with their Fragrance Lamps. Recently, our friends at Ashleigh & Burwood shared their findings, and we’re excited to bring this information directly to you.

How Did Ashleigh & Burwood Test Fragrance Lamps Against Pollen?

Ashleigh & Burwood recently tested their purifying Fragrance Lamps to see what effect they could have against airborne pollen. The tests discovered that using a Fragrance Lamp could help remove up to 90% of pollen from the air in up to 50% less time than when not using a lamp, creating a purified, less-pollen-filled environment for hay fever sufferers.

To test the effectiveness of the Fragrance Lamps, they used a SIFT-MS device to measure the amount of ragweed pollen in the air over 60 minutes inside a stainless-steel chamber. They introduced vapour from the Fragrance Lamp into the chamber with a vacuum pump, creating a concentration of about 7 parts per million (ppm) of Lamp Fragrance vapour, which is similar to what you’d find in a typical home setting. They also conducted control tests without the Lamp Fragrance to accurately compare the results.

The results showed that, on average, 90% of airborne pollen was removed within 17 minutes when the Lamp Fragrance vapour was used. In comparison, the control tests without the Lamp Fragrance took 38 minutes to remove 90% of the pollen.

What Are Fragrance Lamps?

Fragrance Lamps are a unique way to scent your home, combining impactful fragrance release with air-purifying properties, thanks to their catalytic scenting method. Originally created over a hundred years ago to be used in hospitals, Fragrance Lamps not only leave your home smelling wonderful but they also actively work to purify the air in the home – reducing pollen, common odours, and more!

How Do You Use a Lamp?

For the ultimate purifying ambiance in the home, use your Fragrance Lamp by simply placing it on a stable and spill-resistant surface, filling the Lamp with your favourite Ashleigh & Burwood Lamp Fragrance, lighting the stone for a few minutes, and then blowing out the flame, which in turn releases the scent. Watch the video below for further detailed step-by-step instructions.

Why Choose a Fragrance Lamp?

The underrated hero of home fragrance, Fragrance Lamps are a powerful, purifying way to scent your home in a short amount of time. Discover more about why to choose a Fragrance Lamp, their benefits, and how they compare to other home fragrances like scented candles.

Fragrance Lamps Have Incredible Scent Impact

If you’re seeking an impressively powerful fragrance release that will transform the home, Fragrance Lamps are the answer. They use a catalytic process to diffuse the Lamp Fragrance into the air, providing a much further scent throw much faster than similar home fragrance formats like scented candles and reed diffusers.

Reed diffusers and scented candles rely on diffusion to fragrance a space, with the fragrance molecules diffusing into the air as they evaporate from the saturated reed or molten wax. In comparison, Fragrance Lamps use convection, which helps the fragrance molecules travel further. The fragrance is actively expelled through the catalytic reaction of the stone and passed through the air via convection current, sending it further than diffused molecules.

Fragrance Lamps Purify the Air

Lamp Fragrances are made with a base of isopropyl alcohol, widely used in antiseptics, cleaning products, and hand sanitisers due to its cleansing properties. Ultra-fine particles of the base are diffused from the Fragrance Lamp alongside the fragrance molecules. These fine particles have a similar sanitising effect on the air as hand sanitiser does on your skin, neutralising airborne molecules and contaminants.

Fragrance Lamps Work Quickly

Fragrance Lamps scent rooms rapidly, taking just under fifty minutes from start to finish, with only half an hour of active fragrancing. Other home fragrance offers a slower release, with diffusers taking a few hours for the reeds to draw up fragrance and scented candles needing between one to four hours for the molten pool of wax to spread across the candle’s surface. Fragrance Lamps also only need their flame alight for a few minutes, compared to candles or oil burners which need an active flame during the whole fragrancing process.

Even other rapid scenting methods, such as room sprays, offer fast fragrance which also dissipates quickly, whereas Fragrance Lamps’ scent lingers for several hours.
