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.
Pure Gold is a clear beeswax polish ideal for wooden furniture made of Ash, Beech, Maple, Light Oak and Pine.
Rose Gold is a medium shade beeswax polish specially formulated for use on Rosewood, Light Mahogany, Cherry, and Honey Oak 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 woods.
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. Once dry, buff it with the soft shoe brush and buffing cloth.
Great to get my starter kit arrive quickly and also with a nice letter thanking me fo my order and a booklet explaining about all the waxes and tips on how to use them, quality products.
Excellent product and well packed.
I'm just a bit speechless actually.
The box arrived in very good time ... it was beautiful - clearly so much care and thought went into its design and production.
The personalised note from Emma ... lovely to feel that Gilboy's were treating me as a special customer.
The contents! The wonderful waxes in their jars, the cloth, the repair cubes in their cute packaging, the seeds, the booklet - speechless!
Thank you for the kit: excellent and outstanding and much appreciated.
The only problem now is to temper my enthusiasm to make sure I use everything properly!
And for that, the videos are really helpful.
When I placed my order from Canada, I certainly appreciated the free shipping, but expected it to take an eternity to be delivered. To my surprise, I received my order in just a matter of days. What surprised me even more was attention to detail and care that went into the packaging. The hand written note from the Gilboys thanking me for my order and wishing me well with my furniture polishing, felt like receiving a note from a long time friend. The wax itself has transformed my dingy-looking furniture into statement pieced. Very easy to use, made fool-proof thanks to the well-designed instructions and application tips. A natural product too ... unlike other waxes, Gilboys smells non-toxic and didn't trigger any of many allergies. Many thanks to Gilboys: 5+ stars for sure. You have exceeded my every expectation.

My wife had been dropping some not so subtle hints about wanting this starter kit. She was ecstatic to get one for valentines day and is now polishing any nice piece of furniture we have!
Really great product, good packaging and information included. Looking forward to planting the seeds once the weather improves.
Ordered the beeswax starter kit it arrived promptly and was beautifully packaged with handwritten notes. When we buy online often the service feels impersonal but the inclusion of the note plus the sweet pea seeds confirms you are dealing with real people!. The product is amazing, I used it on a late 17th century walnut cabinet on stand, the stand like many is a 19th century replacement and to be honest I was considering replacing it or even painting it as the finish on the stand was so degraded and sun bleached (yes even in Scotland!). After a good polish with the Gilboys beeswax the finish has been transformed the colour and depth have been restored and the previously almost matt finish has now a good sheen. The waxes also smell lovely and of natural oils not nasty chemicals. This starter kit would be a fantastic gift for anyone that cares for their furniture. Well done Gilboys!
Prompt delivery to US. Excellent product.
What can i say, I've only used the Rose Gold from this kit so far and it truely is a supperior porduct. The personal touches really made me feel like i was supporting a Bristsh Brand to be proud of. I'm so happy with this kit I will be ordering another kit soon as a birthday gift for my Dad and Gilboys will definatly be my Wax of choice in future.
Watched the YouTube video and was inspired to get the kit from Gilbys. Arrived quickly and with a hand written note and complimentary packet of sweet pea seeds I was delighted with my purchase. For the right person this would be a wonderful gift
Excellent product, beautifully packaged with a personal touch. Easier to use than most other premium wax finishes; doesn't leave any sticky residue. Expensive product but discount for recycling jars is a great incentive. Will re-order on that basis.
