    • Natural T1-grade carnauba wax
    • Natural myrica, Japan and berry waxes
    • Pure pine gum spirits of turpentine

  • Say 'Thank You' to the bees by growing our complimentary sweet pea seeds  **unfortunately this offer excludes USA due to FDA regulations

    Our beeswax furniture polish provides the best protection for the finish of all woods. It is very easy to apply and a little polish goes a very long way because turpentine holds much more wax in suspension by volume than any petrochemical solvent. 

    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
      • 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
    • Our workshop roof is completely covered in solar panels and generates far more electricity than we consume


    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.

    Great advice and product

    I received great and advice on what product to purchase and what other products I would need. The wax comes so beautifully packaged and no plastic! The sideboard looks totally rejuvenated. I used the antique gold.

    Fantastic Purchase!

    Customer service is incredible. They responded to my email quickly and answered all of my questions. Great video tutorials online that helped me navigate bringing my antique pieces back to life. Super fast shipping!! I ordered and got a shipping notification minutes after ordering online. The wax polish made a big difference and I am happy knowing that my furniture is better protected.

    It’s stuff of magic!

    The service was exceptional. Packaging beautiful and thoughtful to the environment. The wax is fantastic. My furniture is gleaming. All my family is hooked!

    Rejuvenated bureau

    Stripped off old varnish and used rose gold wax. Amazing results. Wood looks great extremely happy with the results

    Great service

    Very easy to use and clearly much better than any product we’ve tried in the past. Really impressed and we will be regular customers.


    I have made polishing the household antique mahogany furniture and brass fixtures a “Covid project”. The wax is producing the results expected having studied the Gilboy’s web site and videos posted to YouTube. I am pleased with the results. The largest piece of the project is a 5-leaf Regency dining table in the style of Gillows having an Imperial action circa 1825. I recently purchased this table in extremely neglected condition at auction. One end is badly sun-faded. It belonged to several generations of one family but was never maintained or cared for by the last family members to own it.. So far I have completed work on the underneath of one end section. The tapered, reeded legs now look stunning compared to their sorry sight in an auction room. Now I will work on the underneath of the other end section before starting work on the table top. I find that where panels to cupboards have become dull and flat, it can take at least three coats of wax spaced 5 days apart to restore depth and richness to the polished surface. One property of the wax that stands out is that it truly hardens after buffing — no smearing or streaking. I will say, that over 60 years, this is by far the best wax I have used. Congratulations on a first-rate product!

    Proving the best

    This is my second order from Gilboys. I have continued to be utterly impressed by their quality wax, customer service (they even give you seeds to plant with each order to maintain the bee population) and the excellent results achieved with the simple steps required to bring something wooden back to life. Simply the best on the market.

    Hi Simon and many thanks for your email.

    Unfortunately the wax hasn’t arrived yet but no worries, I fully appreciate that the current is causing a few glitches for all of us :)

    Having seen all of the YouTube videos that you do, I know that the results will be absolutely superb. I’ll definitely send some before and after pictures of the work and I’m looking forward to ordering more materials from you soon.

    Again, many thanks and kind regards,

    Jamie :)


    The wax arrived about two minutes after I replied to your first email so my apologies to you. I've just finished putting a first layer on as we speak and it's transformed the card table I'm working on! Absolutely over the moon with it :)

    I'll get another layer on tomorrow and send some pictures if that's ok?

    Again, many thanks for everything. The time and care taken with everything from ordering to receiving and then the follow up is beyond outstanding. You have a customer for life! Looking forward to ordering again soon.

    Warmest regards,

    Jamie :)

    Amazing service & product

    I had got in touch about my table via email and Simon helped me for the whole process giving me step by step instructions to restore my oak table. The product arrived beautifully packaged with a hand written note. It has been the best customer service I have ever experienced and would highly recommend.

    Great discovery!

    Unbeatable quality - truly great product
