Here at Jersey Lavender, it’s not just the lavender that we grow on our farm that makes its way into our products; thanks to the traditional farming methods that we’re so proud to use, we have several other side-lines on the go that sometimes give us some rather superior by-products as a very welcome bonus.
One such instance is our 100% natural beeswax furniture polish, which is handmade for us right here on Jersey by a fellow local beekeeper, using the beeswax from our own bees.
Why Use Beeswax Furniture Polish
Beeswax has been used to enhance and protect wood for hundreds of years; as both a naturally occurring substance and a by-product of beekeeping and honey production, its ready availability is clearly one its best features. However, there is also another very good reason as to why beeswax has become the most widely used wood treatment and that is purely that beeswax loves wood like nothing else!
Beeswax not only feeds and nourishes wood but it also protects it in an almost unique way. When worked into bare, untreated wood, beeswax will penetrate the grain and seal the wood with a waterproof coating that not only preserves but also provides a tough and durable barrier and a natural looking shine.
Even on varnished or treated wood, a regular application of beeswax will help to sustain any type of finish by supplementing the protective layer, thereby keeping the wood in tip top condition and enhancing its natural lustre. Despite supermarket shelves that are now laden with every type of furniture polish imaginable, there is nothing that will keep your furniture in as good a shape as natural beeswax.
