This oil is great for those that suffer from chemical sensitivities and cannot use solvent based products. The odour of this oil is much like crushed walnuts. This oil is a great environmentally friendly locally produced product with no additives or preservatives.
This is different than the oil in the health food stores only insofar as we have put the oil through a process which allows the oil to completely dry on its own, without the use of added chemicals or dryers.
This oil will darken and richen the wood with a soft luster. Generally the older the wood, the more it will darken it. This will vary based on the type of wood and the age of the wood. It is highly recommended to try a small amount on an area to find out how your project will look with this application.
Used inside, this food-safe oil finish is perfect to use in the kitchen on wooden cutting boards, wooden utensils or stone. Also provides a wonderful finish for flooring.
It penetrates to protect from the inside out. This oil does not leave a surface film that will chip or scratch.
The oil will feel dry to the touch one day after the initial application, however complete drying can be several days. For example if there is too much oil initially applied, then small amounts of oil may rise over the first few days. This can be avoided by wiping the excess away with a cloth. If used on a floor during this time it is recommended to place some cardboard pieces where there will be a lot of foot traffic. Dirty shoes should be kept off for at least two weeks.
Coverage will vary taking into consideration what the oil is being applied to. For example, a previously oiled surface will require very little oil, where as bare wood will require more.
Hemp oil is great to wet sand or seal your milk painted projects.
