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