Gilly's easy-to-use Liquid Beeswax nourishes your timber, protecting from dryness and enhancing its natural grain. Rich in pure beeswax, it can be used on finished or unfinished surfaces and is even suitable for use on a lathe.
Simply apply with a soft cloth or paint brush, allow to dry for half an hour then buff using a lint-free cloth or mitt in a circular motion. Enjoy the pleasant fragrance as you polish, knowing it is food safe.
Raw timber to nourish and prevent cracking/splitting. Ideal for large, rough surface areas. Suitable for both soft and hard woods.
Ensure the surface is clean and dry before application.
How to Apply
Apply with a soft cloth (or brush for carved/irregular areas).
Allow the timber to absorb the oil for 5 minutes, before buffing back with another clean cloth.
Apply 3 coats, if timber is new or dry, repeating the same procedure. Subsequent coats can be applied straight after buffing. Each timber will vary in porosity and dryness, so the number of coats required will vary. Once timber is saturated, there is no need for any more. Take care not to over-apply; residue can become sticky and attract dirt.
Dry time between coats is 5-10 minutes to allow oil to soak in. Allow up to 30 minutes for a completely dry finish.
Gilly’s Liquid Beeswax can be reapplied as frequently as required (if the timber becomes dull or dry). There is no need for any extra work, just follow the simple steps above. We would recommend reapplying a light coat every 4-6 months to keep your timber looking fresh. The more oil that has been applied over time, the less it will require for maintenance.
Warm, soapy water for hands and application cloths.
