Lampe Berger History



Lampe Berger Oil diffusers first began in Paris, France in 1898 invented by a pharmacist called Maurice Berger who was born in 2nd of December, 1866. During the world war 1, the hospitals were full with corpses with diseases. This inspired Maurice to look for solution for air purification. He then succeeded discovering the Lampe Berger diffuser oil which can purify air, destroy odors and destroy air borne bacteria. It became more and more famous when the royal families and rich started using this product. Maurice Berger opened a shop known as L'Ozosenteur where his business was to commercialize his Berger lamp. He ran his business until he retired in 1927. At age 64, Maurice passed away. It was later sold to Jean-Jacques Failliot and currently you can get Lampe Berger in Europe, USA and all around Asia.
