Limited Edition Artistic Egloo

 

As winter approaches for the northern hemisphere, heating homes can become more of a challenge. Heating bills can skyrocket, and bundling up in layers is a sometimes restrictive way to cut down on heating costs. However, one device could provide an eco-friendly way to heat up a room without rising heating costs. 

The Egloo is a candle-powered heating system. It's designed by the Italy-based company Art is Therapy. Egloo heats, scents and humidifies a space in one powerful and elegantly crafted package.

The Egloo has five unique elements each engineered to contribute something to the overall gadget. There's a base, a steel plate, a grill, and two nested domes. The base allows enough room for the steel plate to fit comfortably. The plate has two parts -- one for water and the other for the wax and wooden sticks. A metal grill sits atop the base. The grill supports the two handcrafted domes. There's space between the two domes that forces hot air out and to disperse around the room. The terracotta used is a high-heat terracotta literally called "terra da fiamma." On average, it takes about 15 minutes for the terracotta to warm up; after that, the domes can start expelling excess heat and warming up a room. The secondary tray for water also helps in a variety of ways. Adding water to an Egloo turns it into a humidifier. You can also add essential oils to the water for health benefits.
