SWEET SMELLING KEROSENE

One way to freshen the scent of burning kerosene lamps is to add a few drops of potpourri essential oil to each lamp full of kero. I have tried vanilla scent and mulberry scent so far, and they completely mask the distinctive kerosene aroma. Only a few drops of the essential oils are needed, and the price per 1/4 fl oz is certainly not excessive considering the limited quantities used.

Sweet smelling kerosene additives for kerosene  heaters are usually 1/3cc or 91% alcohol, an ounce or two of Low Odor Mineral Spirits and a few drops of potpourri oil.  The cost per treatment is negligible if you make it yourself, plus you have the added advantage of using the potpourri essential oil of your choice.

There are two types of potpourri scents:  alcohol based and water based.  You want the alcohol based variety.

If you guys out there don't know what potpourri essential oils are, ask a woman...it's a girl thing.
