Polish your Wooden Furniture

Is your wooden furniture looking a little shabby? Give it a new lease of life with a great natural, homemade polish. All you need to do is to melt some beeswax and olive oil (1:4 ratio), add a few drops of your favourite essential oil e.g lavender and then you are ready to start polishing with a clean cloth.


  • 1 cup of beeswax
  • 4 cups of olive oil
  • 12 drops of lavender oil


  1. Melt the beeswax and olive oil in a double boiler on top of the stove.
  2. Once melted add the 12 drops of lavender oil.
  3. Pour the polish mixture into a jar or tin and allow to set (approx 15-20 minutes)
  4. Once set, apply the polish to your favourite pieces of wooden furniture e.g. chairs, tables & dressers with a clean cloth and rub in.
  5. Use another clean cloth to buff up the wood and remove any remaining residue.
