This is the recipe I use for finishing wood. This can be used after a chalk finish or just a plain finish on wood that is all natural.
Start with Beewax about 1/4 of cup a shaving or in my case the honey comb remnants.
Mix that with a cup of Olive oil, You could use any oil (lemon oil, coconut oil…etc…) I just have Olive oil.
Heat in Microwave until the Beeswax is melted. About 2-3 minutes… keep checking so you don’t scorch or burn.
I have to strain my mixture you may not have to if you started with clean beeswax. Do this while mixture is hot.
Wipe on wood, a little goes along way and then wipe off excess with a cotton rag.
Store extra in an airtight container. I use every now and then on my wood furniture to spruce it up and protect the surface. I have a family full of people would refuse to use coasters so I have water glass marks on everything and this work wonders. It’s great for your hands too!! I can tell I need a manicure from those shots..eekk!
