Natural Recipe to Make Your Own Wood Polish

You want to take care of your wood furniture, but you want to avoid chemicals? This natural wood polish will change your life!


If you want to make this natural wood polish at home you will need only several simple and natural ingredients. The list includes 6 to 8 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, 2 tablespoons finely grated beeswax, a pot with 2 inches water, glass container and a spoon. The number of tablespoons for the olive oil depends on how firm you prefer the polish to be. You can experiment and find out which consistency works best for you.


Put the pot with water on the stove and wait until it starts steaming. Don’t let it boil. You can now get a glass container and fill it with the beeswax. Put it inside the pot with water, making sure that the water does not get in touch with the content inside of the glass container. Wait until the beeswax melts, then add the extra virgin olive oil. Mix everything very well so that all the ingredients combine.

If you want to add essential oils for a better smell, feel free to. You will need 10 to 15 drops. Leave the wood polish to set and you can start using it. Apply it on the surfaces, wait for at least 20 minutes, then clean it with a new dry rug.
