For a beautiful shine and marvelously soothing fragrance, a natural furniture polish is the way to go. And it’s simple to make, using jojoba oil and essential oils.
Things You'll Need
- Pure essential oils
- Jojoba oil
- Bottle with cap
Use Jojoba oil, available online and in health food stores. This rich oil gives wood a beautiful shine. Fill the bottle with 1 fluid ounce (30ml) of oil.
Use 100% pure essential oils-only these offer aromatherapy benefits. The label will state "100% pure." You can find them at health food stores and online. Don’t use synthetic oils-they do not have the same benefits.
Add 10 drops of an essential oil whose fragrance you enjoy to the Jojoba oil. Some suggestions include floral fragrances such Ylang-Ylang, Lavender and Lemongrass, as well as such forest fragrances as Spruce, Pine and Cedarwood.
Cap the bottle and shake well to blend the oils.
Polish the piece of furniture gently with a soft cloth and 1/2 a teaspoon of oil. Add oil to your cloth as needed.
Tips & Warnings
- If you want to make a larger batch of oil, simply increase the proportions, such as doubling or tripling the amounts. The oil will keep.
- Do not use oils if you are pregnant or trying to get pregnant without getting professional advice.
- If any skin irritation occurs, stop using immediately.
