OLIVE OIL

Modern Pioneer - - Varnish -

While this var­nish only has two in­gre­di­ents, it has the added ben­e­fit of a pleas­ant aroma.

In­gre­di­ents

• Olive oil • Lemon juice or es­sen­tial oil •

I rec­om­mend choos­ing a milder, fresher es­sen­tial oil. Con­sider that straw­berry es­sen­tial oil smells great, but do you re­ally want your en­tire home to smell of straw­ber­ries? Not me. I use lemon juice, lemon es­sen­tial oil or laven­der es­sen­tial oil for this var­nish.

Tool

• Clean, dry towel

Di­rec­tions STEP 1

Mix 1 ¼ cups olive oil with ¾ cup lemon juice or three drops of es­sen­tial oil.

Ex­ceed­ing the sug­gested dose of es­sen­tial oil will make the scent of the var­nish over­pow­er­ing.

STEP 2

Dip a cor­ner of a towel into the mix­ture and ap­ply.

Us­ing a slow, cir­cu­lar mo­tion, rub the mix­ture into the floor. Fo­cus on small ar­eas so that you prop­erly cover the en­tire floor.
