Care and protect your wood! Beeswax for Cutting Boards
Introducing our beeswax polish for cutting boards and wood, a must-have for any kitchen. This cutting board conditioner is specially formulated to nourish and protect your cutting boards, butcher blocks, and wooden utensils. It is made with 100% pure food-grade mineral oil and beeswax, which creates a barrier that protects the wood from water and food stains. The mineral oil also helps to keep the wood hydrated, preventing it from cracking and warping. The beeswax gives the cutting board a natural shine and a pleasant smell. The aluminum tin is easy to use and store. This product is perfect for keeping your cutting board looking like new for years. It’s safe for use on all types of wood and is perfect for butcher blocks, cutting boards, and utensils.
How to use?
Thoroughly clean your cutting board prior to applying the balm and let completely dry. Use a soft clean cloth to dip into the wood polish and rub gently over the wood. Leave to dry for a few hours and repeat for best results. This can be done monthly. I do it when the colour of the wood looks a little drier than the edges of the board. See demonstration of before and after on a wooden sideboard here.
A 40g tin of beeswax polish should do a number of cutting boards. If you would like to have a crack at your own, you can buy the pure beeswax here.
Beeswax is one of nature’s most amazing products! The beeswax comes directly from uncapping our honey frames from our hives. It often varies in colour but is majority yellow. It can be used in a very extensive list of projects.
All our beeswax has been lovingly hand-melted with steam and double-filtered but may still contain pollen and honey remnants. Beeswax is often yellow due to the variety of nectar, pollen, and resins gathered by the bees to make the wax and also by thousands of little bee feet walking on the frames every day. When fresh beeswax is first built in the hive it can also be white.
Our happy hives are located on suburban and rural properties from Brisbane to Gympie. We use no chemicals in the management of our bees or the processing of our raw honey or pure beeswax. We are organically minded in every step of our beekeeping journey.
When you buy any of our products you are supporting a local family of beekeepers that support an important industry and other family-run businesses. Dream big for local impact!
