Environmental preservation is very important to us and we make every effort to ensure our products have a minimal impact on the environment:
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 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.
Excellent service from Gilboys and the wax is brilliant. The Sweet Pea seeds are a bonus!
I have used Gilboys polish for many years. It adds a wonderful shine and a real glow to my antique Georgian furniture collection. I have also used it on several antique Bronzes, and the polish helps to enhance the natural patina that bronzes acquire over a period of time. Gilboys polish is, without doubt, the best natural bees wax polish on the market.
With kind regards,
I have just used the Rose Gold wax on the table.
It’s easy to use,the wire wool really helps with spreading the wax to cover the wood. Building up to the colour we want slowly. Really pleased with the service and the presentation box with a pack of sweet peas and repair block is a nice thought.
Excellent flow out, easiest to apply of several alternatives currently used. Buffs more easily and to a far smoother sheen than any I have used or currently use. No tendency to ‘cake’ like candle wax residue that I have encountered with alternatives, just a thin even film to buff. Impressed. Several applications to an 1850 French oak, carved ‘gargoyle’ table base pedestals, untreated for many years, have brought back rich colour.
I had a long search for something all natural that works. Gilboys worked, and restored moisture, and at least 60-70% of original shine. It also revealed a brighter shade of the grains (more contrast) while previously it was old and flat dark. Also lightened up damage from some liquid emulsions (though not completely). I love the idea of supporting bees and will plant the pea seeds. Hope there will be cheaper shipping or Asia office would be cool (also recycling spots ...since i sending the empty jarss back would be too costly). Thanks!!
The polish went on really easily and although the bureau looked a bit neglected the polish brought up a lovely shine.
I used the Antique Gold kit on my Asian hardwood furniture which has faded badly. I was beginning to despair that I would have to sand everything down but luckily I found your kit. The results are very good and the furniture has the best shine it has had in a long time. The kit was packed beautifully. I am very pleased. Thank you.

This is an AMAZING coat for antiques. I have a large corner cabinet and a chair I caned both from the late 1800s. I used Gilboys on both of them and they came out fabulous. It is well with the shipping to the U.S.A. Because the look is perfect in the end. No one can believe it is the same cabinet. Follow the easy to understand directions, and you will be amazed yourself.
I bought this polish recently and the service was super fast. The packaging was excellent. Tried the polish and then decided to order the wire wool and polishing cloth as well. We are using it on a sun faded rosewood table and think it is going to need an awful lot of elbow grease! It looked
so quick and easy on the demonstration!!
