All of our products are conditioned with natural oils from the brand Tried and True. The oils condition and soften the wood, giving it a beautiful shine and bringing out the lovely various colors each tree presents. It is non-toxic, naturally made, food safe, and family friendly. This 2-ounce bottle contains beeswax and flaxseed oil (aka linseed). No other additives. The products you purchase from us really will not require any need to reapply the oil, but sometimes it is fun to go ahead and give them a new coat to make them shiny again.
Applying the oil is as easy as rubbing lotion on your skin. You can use your fingers or a cloth. Rub it into the wood, using as little as possible since it really doesn't take very much at all. Allow it to soak for a little while, perhaps an hour. Then buff any excess off.
If you happen to ever have a dent occur in your wood or some drawing from pencil or marker, you can use sandpaper to smooth out or "erase" the areas (starting with a more coarse grit paper and finishing with a very fine sandpaper). Once you are happy with the look, rub a little of this oil on it and you're ready to continue using for years to come.
