Pure paraffin (wax) oil is marketed as "smokeless and odorless" lamp oil. It is suitable for use in candle lamps, similar to those used in restaurants. Pure Liquid Paraffin Lamp Oil is extremely clean and safe to use. Paraffin oil is not recommended for use in antique lamps or lanterns as the higher ignition temperature may result in damage to the lamp. Pure paraffin oil can solidify in environments below room temperature, greatly limiting its suitability for outdoor or emergency use.
