Using the App? Paste link into a browser Beware of sellers trying to rip you off with thin, runny, splashing, drug store baby oil listed as Drakeol 35! I recently purchased oil from two other “unnamed” sellers on and tested the oil with a device that measures viscosity and density and lo and behold, they are selling plain old drug store mineral oil. This oil is not meant for your rain lamp and doesn’t make droplets but rather runs down the strings and splashes because it is so thin. Read below, check my response on this oil and buy with confidence that you are putting the original in your beloved vintage rain lamp!
This oil is specifically produced for use in all sizes of vintage rain drip lamps from the 60's and 70's. We can also offer this oil at no additional cost! Be aware that the color is a "clear" color and not as deep as it appears in the bottle. It will have a tint when flowing in the lamp.

This Drakeol 35 (sourced in 55 gallon drums directly from the original manufacturerof the oil from the 1970s) produces the realistic "rainfall effect" you remember from when you first saw an oil rain lamp. Beware of other sellers here on attempting to capitalize on the success of this oil by selling plain old baby oil from the drug store at a huge markup! Regular mineral oil is the incorrect viscosity and does not createbeautifulindividual drops of "rain" on the lines and it runs so fast it can sometime splash out of the basin, making a mess! Most large rain lamps that are 20-27" tall require about 32 ounces. It is the buyer's responsibility to refer to the instruction manual for their specific machine to determine the amount of oil required. This amount is a general figurefor MOST lamps. sale is for OIL ONLY. No lamp included.
The instructions to add the oil are quite simple:
1. Place plastic sheeting under your work area and cover it with newspaper. Keep paper towels handy in case of spills and drips.
2. Turn on the rain lamp.
3. Use a paper towel to gently wipe oil from the fishing strands where you will be working. Locate the holes in the bottom pan of the cage under the foliage and statue. There is not a specific oil fill hole. The oil will find its way through the same holes that collects oil drips from the fishing line strands. The collection basin is under the cage where the oil collects and is pumped to the top of the lamp.
4. Slowly pour the first pint of oil into the bottom of the cage under the foliage.
5. Wait five minutes for the rain effect to start and listen for a change in the sound of the pump.
6. Add another half pint of oil if the rain has not started or there is no change in the sound of the pump.
7. Wait five minutes and repeat pouring a half pint of oil at a time until the rain looks normal and the pump sounds somewhat muted.
8. Expect to pour at least one pint of oil but no more than three pints. Stop adding oil when the raining effect looks normal. Do not use too much oil, because it can overwhelm the pump.
NOTE:The lamp needs to be on a level surface.If you add too much oil, you will saturate the electrical mechanism and the pump will not function properly so that the oil never reaches the top. If this occurs, remove some of the oil by removing the three nuts that bolt the metal base tray down at the bottom and remove some oil. Only the impeller of the pump should be submerged in the oil.
