Introduction: Oil Lamp

Oil lamps come from the early 1800s. This project is a cool experiment.

Step 1: Materials

- Vegetable oil
- Bottle
- Cotton string

Step 2: Filling the Bottle

Fill the bottle half way with your vegetable oil.

Step 3: Adding String

Put a piece of string through the top of the bottle and let it soak. (Using cotton string works the best.)

Step 4: Igniting

Now ignite the string and let it burn. (If you cant see in the picture, its burning but lightly)
