Paraffina

The use of the oil lamp goes back thousands of years. For ages, they were the only source of continuous light. This new “Oil lamp” is named after paraffin, once the most popular fuel. Through capillarity, the paraffin was sucked up very little at a time by the wick. Just like its predecessor, this new “Paraffina” is now equally efficient with its precious source of energy.
