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

"Everything you need to start polishing your furniture like a professional with the best beeswax polish"

  • 'pure gold' is a clear polish for use on light coloured woods such as Ash, Beech, Maple, Light Oak and Pine
  • 'rose gold' 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' carefully crafted for use on dark coloured woods such as Antique Oak, Mahogany, Walnut, and Elm
  • Furniture restorers recommend ultra-soft '0000'-grade oil-free wire wool that cleans the surface as it applies the wax polish
  • Antique restorers recommend an open-weave 100% cotton polishing cloth for easier buffing without streaks
  • Complimentary organic sunflower seeds for you to plant and grow as a special 'Thank You' to the hard-working bees  

Perfect if you have one prize piece of wooden furniture or have two or three pieces of different types of wood. 

Ideal for anyone who would like to polish a single piece of furniture but may be unsure which shade to buy. 

We have ensured there is enough in each tin to cover a single piece of furniture (depending on the absorption rate of the wood) such as dining table, gate-leg table, bureau, chest of drawers, or four to six dining chairs.

If you would like to try your hand at beeswax polishing using the products professional restorers use, this kit is a great starting point.

Our beeswax furniture polish is made in the UK from the highest quality natural waxes we can source and is specially formulated to bring old furniture back to life:


  • The best triple-filtered beeswax, humanely harvested from local hives
  • All natural waxes: Carnauba, myrica, Japan and berry waxes
  • Blended with nothing but pure pine gum spirits of turpentine in the traditional way
  • No white (mineral) spirits, No toluene, No aggressive petrochemical solvents and definitely NO SILICONE


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


  1. For best results use the included ultra-soft 0000-grade oil-free wire wool to apply the polish
  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 (15-20 minutes in temperate climates)
  4. Use the included open-weave pure cotton buffing cloth to buff the wax with ease and without leaving streaks. An open-weave cloth reduces the heat from friction that would melt the top layer of wax and cause 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, 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 when completely dry with a soft shoe brush and buffing cloth.

The ideal gift

This is a Xmas present for a keen furniture restorer. I am sure he will reorder this wonderful product.

Great starter kit

I have a family piece oak dining table that needs polishing but wasn't sure which polish colour to use so I opted for the sample pack. I haven't yet polished the dining table but I have done a small coffee table that had been much abused and was water stained. I'm happy with the results of my efforts but didn't think to take before/after photos. One feedback comment: it might be helpful to novice polishers like me to have examples of wood colour and which polish to use on them - I had no idea until I opened each little tin and tested

Great wax, quality always shines

Great Starter Kit

Really useful starter kit which we have used on a coffee table and a kitchen dining table. Instructions are really clear and the kit has everything you need to help produce wonderful results. Combined with the Gilboys youtube videos, you really can do this yourself!

Great product and service

Loving theses waxes. You only need a small amount and the results are impressive, plus the smell is so fresh. Delivery was quick . The packaging all eco friendly & a lovely little touch was the handwritten personalised note included in the packaging- makes you feel special!

Maureen Hooker (Hampshire, GB)

I have used the Polish on a old chair and it has come up lovely. I have other items to polish, which I haven't got round to yet! I've also used the leather polish on a handbag and its come up like new and I bought it from a charity shop many moons ago! All in all I'm very pleased with both products. The customer service is wonderful as well.

100 year old mirror brought back to life.

My great great uncle carved this mirror in the 1920s, over the years it had acquired a coat of sixties gloss. After it was stripped it was pretty raw looking, but after sealing and a good buff-up with Gilboys antique wax, it looked like it must have back in 1923.

YouTube tutorial was inspirational too. This really helped me revitalise a piece of family history, the lustre is just fantastic.


Excellent product , well presented.
Simon very helpful and provided lots of advice.
Quickly despatched and delivered.
