This solvent-free oil finish provides a protective, water-resistant surface sealant. It penetrates to protect from the inside out. It can be used on new wood that is bare, stained, milk-painted or to revive old wood effects. This oil does not leave a surface film that will chip or scratch. This oil does not need to be cut with any solvents. Since there are no added solvents or dryers to this product, the drying time is longer. The oil will feel dry to the touch one day after the initial application; however complete drying can be several days. For example, if there is too much oil initially applied, then small amounts of oil may rise over the first few days. This can be avoided by wiping the excess away with a cloth.
This oil is great for those that suffer from chemical sensitivities and therefore cannot use solvent-based products. The odor of this oil is much like crushed walnuts.
This oil will darken and richen the wood with a soft luster. Generally the older the wood the more it will darken it. This will vary based on the type of wood and the age of the wood. It is highly recommended to try a small amount on an area to find out how your project will look with this application.
Used inside, this food-safe oil finish is perfect to use in the kitchen on wooden cutting boards, wooden utensils or stone.
Also, provides a wonderful finish for flooring. During the drying time, it is recommended to place some cardboard pieces where there will be a lot of foot traffic. Dirty shoes should be kept off for at least two weeks. Not recommended for areas with a lot of water, such as a bathroom, kitchen or front door area unless special care is taken and extra applications are applied.
Can be used outdoors. This oil does not contain UV protectors; therefore the wood will age, darken and gray.
This oil is a great environmentally friendly product. The hemp seeds are grown and pressed in Ontario.
Caution: Rags used to apply drying oils are highly combustible. When you’re finished with your rag, hang it outside to dry. To avoid spontaneous composition of oily rags, submerge in a water-filled metal container. Be careful disposing of them.
Coverage: Will vary depending what the oil is being applied to. For example, a previously oiled surface will require very little oil; whereas bare wood will require more. Just keep in mind; a little oil goes a long way.
