This solvent-free oil finish provides a protective, water-resistant surface. 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. If used on a floor during this 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.
This oil is great for those that suffer from chemical sensitivities and can not use solvent based products. The odour 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 reccomended 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 * 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*
Not recommended for exterior use. This oil does not contain UV protectors, therefore the wood will age, darken and grey. This oil is a great environmentally friendly product as the hemp seeds are grown and pressed in Ontario, Canada.
Coverage will vary taking into consideration what the oil is being applied to. For example, a previously oiled surface will require very little oil, where as bare wood will require more.
