DIY Beeswax Furniture polish…. only 2 ingredients

Image

I would recommend this if you have access to beeswax. I got mine from a local honey producer, he sells these little bricks for only 50 cents each. I made only a small quanity to try it and it’s lovely.

1 part beeswax

4 parts olive oil

Grate or cut the beeswax into pieces. Gently heat the olive oil and beeswax until the beeswax is melted – 5 – 10 minutes. Take off heat and leave to sit until it starts to set around the sides then stir until thick and creamy and pour into container.

Use a little on a cloth and wipe over lightly with a clean one. This leaves no residue and gives a lovely shine. It’s alot cheaper than buying beeswax polish and none of the chemicals of spray on stuff.

  1. Love the stuff! We loved it so much we purchased lots of it (big chunks) from a local bee keeper (who exports most of his to Russia of all places!) and did our entire stripped wooden floor with it. Steve uses it to rub into his wooden spoons that he makes as well 🙂
