Our Firefly Sea Shell Oil Lamp is nature’s splendor. No two are exactly alike. The sea shell is known as a Turbo or Turban Shell.

Included is a fiberglass wick and the holder is glass.

Firefly Sea Shell Oil Lamps will last a lifetime.

We recommend using Firefly Paraffin Lamp Oil or Firefly CLEAN Lamp Oil.

Lovingly Caring for Your Firefly Oil Candles


Recommended Lamp Oil

We recommend using Firefly CLEAN Lamp Oil or Firefly Paraffin Lamp Oil because both are designed to burn very cleanly producing virtually no soot, smoke or odor. If you choose another brand, please select a high-quality pure liquid paraffin oil.

NEVER MIX FUELS as mixing will change the burning characteristics.

You want a combustible fuel, NOT a FLAMMABLE fuel. NEVER USE KEROSENE, ACETONE, ALCOHOL, GASOLINE or PAINT THINNER . Sorry for shouting but it’s important 🙂 and please do not use any kind of vegetable oil as it is not a proper fuel for your oil candle.


Wick Care

The wick is the highway for the fuel. Please be sure the wick is completely saturated before lighting it. If you light the wick before it is completely saturated, you will burn the wick and experience smoke.

Never let the fuel run dry as the wick will be compromised and doing so will significantly limit the lifetime of the wick. Wicks require trimming over time when you notice they are not performing properly. Simply, twist and push the wick through the collar and trim to the bottom of the scorched area. IMPORTANT: Untwist the wick before readjusting to the appropriate height, otherwise, your highway becomes a bumpy back road!

The height of the wick should be about 1/16” or less above the collar for the best performance. Flames grow after the initial lighting. Wait for 5 minutes.


Rethreading Your Wick

Oh No! You pulled the wick out of the collar, now what do you do? Easy!


Filling Your Candle

Hold the small plastic tab at the top of the funnel. Insert into the candle. Keep elevated above the candle neck. DO NOT rest the funnel on the candle neck as this will restrict the flow of fuel causing the fuel to potentially overflow making a real mess!


Burn Time

You can figure about 6-8+ hours per ounce of fuel. Firefly CLEAN will burn significantly longer than Firefly Paraffin.


Additional Important Info

• DO NOT overfill your oil candle. Fill your oil candle 3/4 or less full.

• Never leave burning candles unattended

• The wick collar gets very hot. Let it cool for 10 minutes before touching.

• Lamp Oil is poisonous. Keep it in a safe place.

• Place your candle on a flat, stable surface away from any traffic.

    The Aqua Turban sea shell oil lamp was much smaller than I had expected Based on the photos, but it is exquisite in its beauty!! And actually the size is more perfect for its purpose. Additionally, I did not realize that it was sitting on Its permanent base in the photos. I thought the little starfish was just a marketing photo. The item far exceeds my expectations. But I am not clear on how I will be able to get a replacement fiberglass wick or additional glass wick holders for this item should the need arise. I do not see those specified on the site….can you advise me on this? Lastly, your company is the epitome of “underpromise and over perform”! Even the shipping was above average! Ava

      Hello Ava,

      Sorry for the delay in responding. We’ve been trying to find a replacement wick but have been unsuccessful. The woman who creates these shell candles has a patent on the wick and will not sell them to us. She will sell directly to you.

      I hope this helps!

      Kind Regards,
