My website has been a little bit neglected recently so here is the first of several updates...
I have been using this in the workshop for nearly two years now as a general purpose finish for smaller items and on restoration work. The wax has been available alongside my original Food Safe Wood Wax in the workshop and in my neighbours plastic free shop ( www.love-joy-home.co.uk ) for around 6 months, now finally it’s made it’s way onto my Etsy shop!
Natural Wood Wax is food safe so perfect for keeping your wooden chopping boards, spatulas and other wooden cookware in good condition. It can also be used on many wood finishes used on furniture and is especially useful for oil-based finishes and for reviving the colour on older furniture.
This is an old fashioned polish made from natural materials namely beeswax, raw linseed oil and carnuba wax which imparts a fine lustre to the wood.
It is available in three sizes 60ml, 125ml and 250ml and will be posted out with instructions on how to use it.
Introducing Food Safe Wood Wax!
Nearly a year after the first experiments and subsequent day to day testing, my workshop made food safe wood wax is now available to buy!
Why? For the last 8-9 years I’ve used Tung Oil to finish chopping boards and other food related items. Tung oil is a traditional food safe finish and works really well. So why change? The problem with tung oil is that it is nut based which leaves open the risk (although tiny) that someone may have an allergic reaction to something I’ve made and finished with this oil, which with today’s ‘compensation culture’ is a risk I don’t need!
Made from beeswax and medicinal grade mineral oil, this wax has been formulated to be easy to apply and far less messy than just using an oil finish. Perfect for keeping your wooden chopping boards, spatulas and other cookware in good condition!
Each tin contains 60ml of Food Safe Wood Wax and instructions on how to use it.
£5.50 (plus P&P for online orders)
