[gardeners] Culinary oil lamp?

   In a pre-holiday Jackson & Perkins catalog. Your basic tall, square
olive oil bottle (but cork mouth) - "Long stems of rosemary, colorful chili
peppers, sweet annie and bay leaves float inside..." Seriously hot peppers,
too, from the look of them. Enough of them to make a difference.
   For $35 plus shipping I could buy a teargas grenade, though not one that
would last 60 hours. Or am I missing something here, and the flame actually
consumes most the aromatic volatiles as well, leaving only a subtle hint of
herbs & spices? I regularly get chili oil pretty warm, but haven't ever
set any on fire.
   Any other suggestions on what to combine in something like this?
