FUR­NI­TURE POL­ISH

Herbs & Superfoods - - Using Herbs In The Home -

To make a nat­u­ral fur­ni­ture pol­ish, sim­ply melt 60g beeswax in a dou­ble boiler, or a heat-proof bowl over sim­mer­ing water. Re­move from the heat and add 275ml pure gum tur­pen­tine. Stir well with a wooden spoon.

In­fuse a large hand­ful of fresh lemon balm in 275ml boiled water for 15 min­utes then strain into a clean saucepan with 60g soap flakes; heat gen­tly to dis­solve the soap flakes.

Cool both mix­tures and blend. Store in clean jars with lids. Ap­ply with a soft cloth to wood, me­tal or painted sur­faces. Buff to a shine with a clean, soft cloth.
