"I’m not just saying it, but your waxes are superb"
- Drew Pritchard (Salvage Hunters)

Pure Gold is a clear beeswax polish ideal for Ash, Beech, Maple, Light Oak and Pine.

Antique Gold is a dark beeswax polish designed for use on dark and antique woods such as Antique Oak, Mahogany, Walnut, Elm or similar dark coloured furniture.


This beeswax furniture polishing kit contains everything you need to polish and protect the finish of your wood furniture:  

  • 125ml jar of Gilboys 'pure gold' beeswax furniture polish   (will cover approximately 12m² or five to six standard size dining tables)
  • 125ml jar of Gilboys 'antique gold' beeswax furniture polish
  • 1.2 metres  of our antique restorers' recommended 0000 oil-free wire wool for perfect application
  • 2 large lengths of our antique restorers' recommended 100% cotton open-weave polishing cloth for easier buffing with no streaking
  • 2 beeswax scratch repair cubes (colour-matched to your polish) for filling dents, deep scratches and cracks
  • Complimentary organic sunflower seeds for you to grow as a 'thank you' to the bees  

Our beeswax furniture polish is made in our own UK workshop using the highest quality natural waxes to bring out the shine and protect fine antique furniture:

  • 100% natural ingredients
    • Humanely harvested, triple-filtered beeswax from local hives
    • All natural waxes: Carnauba, Japan, myrica and berry waxes
    • Pure pine gum spirits of turpentine
    • No white/mineral spirit, no toluene, no silicone or aggressive petrochemical solvents
  • Returnable Clip-top Le ParfaitTM jar with air-tight seal
  • 100% plastic-free, recyclable packaging made with 70% recycled cardboard from FSC-approved mixed sources
  • Return & Refill: Return your empties for a 20% discounted refill

We have developed our beeswax furniture polish to such a fine blend that you don't necessarily have to polish again for at least a year and possibly up to three years.


Our commitment to preserving the natural beauty of your wooden furniture has led us to improve our beeswax polish formula by incorporating a UV absorber. This addition has been scientifically proven to significantly lessen the harmful effects of UV radiation from direct sunlight on wooden surfaces.

By integrating a UV absorber into our trusted beeswax polish formula, we provide additional protection that absorbs even more of the harmful UV rays before they can damage the wood or its finish. This advanced protection is especially crucial for pieces exposed to direct sunlight, helping to greatly reduce discolouration and extend the life of your furniture.

While it does not block all UV rays entirely, it acts as a crucial additional barrier, extending the life of your furniture and keeping its colour and finish vibrant.


Environmental preservation is very important to us and we make every effort to ensure our products have a minimal impact on the environment:
  • We are not driven by a corporate cost-reduction ethos. We select our components based on quality and sustainability rather than the cheapest alternatives
  • 100% Plastic-free recyclable packaging
    • Recycled cardboard and paper from FSC-approved mixed sources
    • Packing tape that is paper & cotton based with a water-based gum adhesive which can be recycled along with the cardboard boxes
    • No polypropylene-based tape. We use biodegradable raffia twine.
  • No petrochemical solvents, we use only pure pine gum spirits of turpentine
  • Reusable Le Parfait jars with a Return & Refill discount scheme
  • Our workshop roof is completely covered in solar panels and generates far more electricity than we consume


  1. Use the included ultra-fine 0000 wire wool for application
  2. With gentle pressure spread the polish evenly over the surface in the direction of the grain, being careful not to over apply and avoid any upholstered areas. Once applied the surface area should look matt in appearance
  3. Allow the pure pine turpentine to completely evaporate and the wax to harden for 20-30 minutes
  4. Use the included 100% cotton open-weave buffing cloth to gently buff the wax to your preferred depth of shine. We recommend an open-weave to reduce the heat from friction that causes smearing.

Weekly furniture maintenance of removing dust can be done by simply using a slightly damp cloth and drying if needed with a clean dry cloth - beeswax polish will protect the surface for a very long time.

If you have a larger surface like the side of a chest of drawers or the top of a dining table apply the beeswax more evenly by dabbing the surface all over with small amounts of polish and then wipe in the direction of the grain to spread the wax evenly.


For carved relief areas such as an antique coffer, you can also apply beeswax furniture polish with a cheap 1 inch trimmed paint brush. It makes applying the beeswax much easier and allows the polish to get right into those dusty and hard to reach areas. Buff it 20 to 30 minutes later with the soft shoe brush and buffing cloth.

Beeswax Polish

I’ve used this polish for several years now and it is by far the best I’ve ever used and the only one I will now buy

Don N (Dallas, US)
Excellent Products for French Polish Instruments

Very high quality waxes that cover well and don't show fingerprints. It can take time to buff delicate instruments after application, but the results are excellent. Highly recommended!

Anthony Scott-Andrews (Ventnor, GB)

extremely helpful and courteous advice about product,
it arrived within 48 hours, beautifully presented and packaged but, most importantly, the polish gives a great result.
Thoroughly to be commended and recommended.

Life changing!

We love antique furniture and have recently bought a hall cupboard from the 18th century. It was very dirty and unloved.
I had used commercially available waxes and polishes before and wanted to get something special for this piece. Now I realise I have been wasting my time all of my life using the big-brand off the shelf products because the finish that the Gilboys Antique polish gave to the cupboard was a shock.
We were literally speechless. The finish was so good we were laughing because we didn't think we could get a piece of furniture to look so good in our home.
We are frequent visitors to National Trust properties and you see the furniture inside the homes and think "if only I could have something like that" and this is the kind of result you get with this product, it gives you a look and a finish to your furniture you could only dream about having.
It is wonderful to learn about the Gilboys company too, the ingredients within the products are better than most alternative furniture polish brands, the level of detail and the additional "touches" make the brand something I am proud to have found and support.
My pictures show the before of a hall cupboard, a shot showing one panel complete and then the final result.

Claudia (London, GB)

Wonderful product and packaging so beautiful and special. Can't wait to bring it to Canada for my mum, as nothing compares to this polish!! Thank you Gilboy's- we are lifelong customers!
