Hemp oil is used for finishing wood. It is a solvent-free product that creates a durable, waterproof surface with a antique look. Use hemp oil on new, tinted, finished with milk paint or to revive the look of a tarnished wood already painted or dyed. It seals the pores of the wood to protect it and leaves no film that could eventually scratch. Hemp oil is 100% pure and safe for food. It can be applied in the kitchen on the wood (cutting boards, bowls or utensils) or on the stone. Hemp oil can restore old oil-based paint or stain, or protect and shine surfaces such as wrought iron and natural stone. Hemp oil doesn’t go rancid overtime because it has already been oxidized and processed.

*** Tip ***
To improve the process of penetration and drying. it is recommended to dilute the oil with ISO-thinner or even better with our citrus solvent. Mix 50% diluent with 50% oil and add 50 ml per liter of dryer for oil to accelerate drying (12 hours with drying agent). The siccative also slightly increases the luster and hardness of the finish. Half of the first layers will have to be diluted and the other half just with siccative. (ex: For a finish with 4 layers, two with thinner and 2 without thinner)
** Use pure oil for surfaces in contact with food.
For the maintenance of oiled wood we recommend the use of Evo black soap an ecological soap based on black olive oil.
