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

Rose Gold is a medium shade beeswax polish specially formulated for use on Rosewood, Teak, Light Mahogany, Cherry, and Honey Oak furniture, G-Plan, Nathan, Mcintosh and all Mid Century Teak furniture or similar coloured woods.

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 'rose gold' beeswax furniture polish
  • 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 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 best pure 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 25% 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.


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
    • 70% 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 super-soft ultra-fine 0000 wire wool to apply
  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 level of shine. We recommend an open-weave buffing cloth to help prevent smearing through over-heating and melting the wax.

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.

Rose Gold Bluthner Piano

Great company, fabulous product. I've enjoyed watching Gilboys Youtube videos and Simon has been a pleasure to deal with. We'll always have Gilboys wax at hand.

David Whitton (Newcastle upon Tyne, GB)
Rose and Antique Polishing Kit

We've used many reputable brands of natural beeswax over the decades, but have always been slightly disappointed by the results. Having researched again recently, Gilboys wood polishes seemed to be the best available (I also found the YouTube tutorials very helpful). Unsure of precisely which product I needed, I phoned and Simon himself gave very full advice. And I can confirm, the product is totally outstanding: I have never achieved results like this before… quite exceptional. Forget current political hyperbole: this genuinely IS a world-class product. Well done Gilboys!

Alison (Greensburg, US)
Amazing stuff!!!

I'm so glad I searched out a superior product like this for the antique cabinet we just purchased. It definitely takes some work and elbow grease, but the shine it gives is awesome! I know this product will ensure the piece lives a long happy life.

Graham Palmer (Manchester, GB)
The best wax to use

Used Gilboys wax on a number of projects and needed to stock up on the rose and antique waxs.
Simon will always offer help and advice along with the videos he does you will always find the answer you need.
For the best wax just buy Gilboys.

Andrew (East Grinstead, GB)
Brilliant product and service - I will be happily reviving my furniture!

Simon's videos and the instructions inspired me to give this a go and I am so pleased with my first effort. So pleased with this after a trial that I have ordered the full one litre cans. Great product - and I hope your business thrives, you deserve to. Before and after windowsill below. Thanks.

Louise Tushingham (Llanybydder, GB)
Excellent product

What a lovely quality product, beautifully presented and fast delivery. Very pleased with purchase.

Sue Philp (Norwich, GB)
Fabulous product

Reviving an old table that was in an embarrassingly poor condition having sat in a garage for a few years. I watched the Gilboys video and was inspired to have a go myself. I used the Antique Gold wax which was fabulous and really brought it back to life. The service was excellent and my order arrived within 2 days, plus I was able to get advice from Simon as I went along which helped enormously as it was the first time I’d ever attempted anything like this.
Great company and great product. I particularly love the fact that a box of sweet pea seeds comes with the order...they’re now planted and hopefully will attract lots of bees over the Summer.

Nicola Bagworth (Bishop's Castle, GB)
Gilboys Beeswax Furniture Polishing Kit

This is the first time I have ever ordered this kind of product or attempted any such work on a piece of wooden furniture. Gilboys products are wonderful, exactly as described, beautifully presented, and what's more really easy to use.
I was inspired by the videos Simon Gilboy filmed and has put on YouTube, very watchable, clear concise, not a how to do it but how they would go about restoring a piece of furniture.
I purchased the double kit, I wasn't 100% sure how dark the polish would be, however I have used both of the polishes now on different furniture. It's really easy to use, the polish brings out a lovely protective shine on your furniture, I just love it.
I'm so inspired that I've just purchased an early 19th century Mahogany drop down desk and I'm about to order some more Gilboys product in order to bring this piece back to its former glory.
Keep up the great work Gilboys, the product is great worth every penny, my furniture thanks you. ☺️
