DIY Beeswax furniture polish

I don’t recall where I got this recipe from as I have had it for quite a few years, so I can’t give credit where credit is due.

Beeswax Polish

  • 4 ounces beeswax
  • 2 T carnauba wax
  • 2 1/2 C odorless turpentine

Melt the waxes in the microwave in 30 second bursts, stirring each time, until waxes are melted. Stir in turpentine (I also added some essential oil for fragrance to mine). Pour into storage container and allow to cool. The consistency will be a creamy paste.

To use the polish, use a clean cloth and rub into wood in a circular pattern, let the polish dry, and use a clean cloth to buff to a shine.
