I’ve never heard of them before but they sound really cool! Sorry, I’m no help. 🙁

I’ve seen them used before, but haven’t used them myself. You have to place a layer of vegetable oil (canola, olive, etc) on the water’s surface. I saw olive oil used, I wonder if other oils would have a smell but I didn’t notice one. It’s very pretty and unique! It lasted for hours too. They had stones with flowers on the bottom, so at first glance it looked almost like a crystal clear candle with that inside it. (I wish I had a pic for you!) Guess you’d have to be careful nothing would float up into the oil though! I think the trick is cutting the right wick length and using the right amount of oil, this would def require some experimenting beforehand… I don’t know if this helped at all, but if you decide to use them, please post pics! Good luck! Smile
