Making your own wood polish is easy and economical. Additionally, it's safe for the house and everyone in it. You can make it in advance and store it as long as you like, it's shelf stable. If your kids or pets get into it, they might get a tummy ache but it's not a life or death situation. It's great for your wallet and your peace of mind.
Step 1: Ingredients
Fragrance Oil, I recommend a lemon or almond
Step 2: Combine
Combine equal parts of your oils, for this demonstration I am using about a tablespoon of each, but you could make this ahead of time in a spray bottle or jar and keep it in your cabinet. You only need about three drops of your fragrance oil. Mix until consistent.
You can do this with an olive oil, but because olive oil has a golden color, it will carry onto your furniture. If you want a natural gold tone for your furniture, I recommend olive oil, but if you just want a polish, stick to light/no color oils.
Step 3: Use As Desired
I used this little wooden bowl as an example. It went through the dishwasher, which shouldn't have happened, but using a bit of this polish brings it right back to life. Use it on tables, or even your wooden cutting boards, it's perfectly safe. :)
