  • Each 125ml Jar will cover approximately 12m² (5 - 6 standard size dining tables)

Our beeswax furniture polish is made in the UK from the highest quality natural waxes to bring out the shine and protect your furniture: 

  • 100% natural ingredients
  • Humanely-harvested triple-filtered beeswax from local hives
  • All natural waxes: carnauba wax, myrica wax, japan wax and berry wax specially formulated for a long-lasting and durable finish
  • Blended with pure pine gum spirits of turpentine (No white spirits, no mineral spirits, no toluene, no silicones or petrochemical solvents)
  • Reusable Le ParfaitTM clip-top jar with air-tight seal
  • 100% plastic-free recyclable packaging made from 70% recycled cardboard from FSC approved mixed sources
  • Return & Refill Scheme: Return your empties for a 25% discounted refill & return

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.

  • 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

HOW TO POLISH WITH BEESWAX

  1. For optimum application we recommend you use the included very fine 0000 wire wool
  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
  4. Use the included soft open-weave buffing cloth to buff the wax to your desired depth of shine. We recommend an open-weave buffing cloth to help 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.

*SECRET TRADE TIP:

For carved relief areas such as an antique coffer, you can also apply beeswax furniture polish with a standard shoe polish 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 the next day with the soft shoe brush.

Beeswax review

First time I’ve used gilboys beeswax and I’ve found it excellent product and i really liked the hard coloured wax that is supplied with each wax and even though I’m not a great fan off filling minor chips in veneer I found them to work really nicely as age of desk didn’t warrant repairing every single chip all in all well and truly happy with the results off wax kit I brought and will definitely be replacing them like for like once they are finished and I really liked the refill jars to send back with return label for discount on next refill. Sorry i couldn’t show results as the desk as it’s already been picked up.

Polishing kit, honey, water mark remover and wax oil

Have so far only used the polishing waxes. They are brilliant . I have used on furniture - retro teak (rose gold), light oak on handrails ( clear wax) and rose gold wax on old oak library chairs. All look much better and nourished now. The depth of colour now is gorgeous and the feel of the furniture is so nice. Would definitely recommend. I watched the very helpful videos.
The packaging was divine - it was like receiving presents. All were wrapped beautifully with individual messages to me. Loved that!
Very happy customer - thank you very much.

Superb

Been in the antique and restoration trade 40 years and a bit set in my ways but got this kit on recommendation.to try. Superb results both on newly French polished and quick turn around items will now stick with Gilboys its the best I have used.

I loved the finish, but I think I did something wrong

I think I must not have done something right, because a glass of water was put on the table afterwards and it marked. Does this mean I need to use another coat or two of hard wax oil to seal it? Love the products, and I know the reason for the problem is what I have done not the products.

All I hoped for

The hours I spent researching online, trying to find a good furniture wax for my antique furniture. When I found this inexpensive but lovely hutch, I realized that the finish was flaking off, especially on the front. I needed a finish that could "restore" the tired out finish and also be good for my other furniture. The research took days, and I was frustrated that there were so many options but none seemed good. Until I came across Gilboys, It was everything I wanted--easy for a fairly inexperienced DIYer, not toxic, no chemical clean-up needed, not messy, quick drying. The YouTube video where Simon compared all the different options for finishes was just what I needed to help me know that the beeswax furniture polishing kit was the way to go. I did two rounds, on two days, and LOVE the results. I love the finished color, the texture, the gloss--everything.

I enjoyed this product so much I'll be purchasing it for my parents and husband's parents for Christmas, since they have many wooden antiques too!

And the thing that made the order truly special was how carefully and thoughtfully it was packaged. Gilboy's is now the only place I'll come when I need to refinish something. It is SO RARE nowadays to find quality in ANY product; these things are such good quality they are a pleasure to use. Clearly I'm a fan. And my hutch has new life--it's almost glowing! : )

First time purchase

Excellent product and has encouraged me to make attempts to restore more furniture. It gave a lovely sheen to some old oak tables that were a commission piece. Will definitely buy again.

Teak Dining Table

I found Gilboy's on youtube, the Teak Dining Table Restoration
was what i was looking for as i had one in a bad state unused for about 20 years. i bought your hard wax oil and the bees wax polihsing kit, I followed your instructions and got a really lovely result on my teak table, the rose gold wax is very easy to use with the '0000' steel wool and the results made the table look like new. thank you for a very good product.

The set of beeswax polishes, cloths and wire wool arrived beautifully packaged - no plastics. There are instructions included but I’d recommend looking at their You Tube channel which is full of useful tips. I’ve used the beeswax on a variety of wooden furniture and the glow and sheen the beeswax gives to wood is amazing. I really like that Gilboys is a UK based company and developed these products from their years of experience, it’s important to support that kind of small business expertise.
Wonderful product.

Waxing set

Thanks for the excellent kit. The wax applies very easily and buffs up beautifully. This is a great replacement for my old wax product and will certainly use in the future. Nice touch with the sunflower seeds. My grandchildren are very pleased!
