Translation missing: en.products.item.price.price_per_unit_html


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


Simply the best clear beeswax furniture polish for any type of wood. Made in the UK with humanely-harvested organically-farmed beeswax from local hives.


  • 100% natural ingredients
    • Triple filtered beeswax humanely harvested from local hives
    • All natural waxes: T1 Carnauba, Myrica, Japan and Berry 
    • Blended in the traditional way with pure pine gum spirits of turpentine
    • Absolutely no silicone, no aggressive petrochemical solvents, no toluene, no white/mineral spirits whatsoever - guaranteed
  • Very easy to apply and buff - a little polish goes a very long way because pure turpentine holds more wax in suspension by volume than petrochemical solvents
  • Our specially developed blend of waxes ensures that you don't necessarily have to polish again for at least a year and possibly up to 3 years
  • Clip-top Le ParfaitTM jar with air-tight seal
  • Our 100% plastic-free recyclable packaging is made from 70% recycled cardboard from FSC approved sources
  • 20% Discount on refills with our Return & Refill scheme
  • Complimentary sunflower seeds for you to plant and grow as a 'Thank You' to the bees.  

Polishing Kits

Our polishing kits include everything you need to restore, polish and protect the finish of your wood furniture:

  • Gilboys 'pure gold' beeswax furniture polish
  • 1.2 metres of our antique restorers' recommended oil-free '0000' grade ultra-soft wire wool for easier application
  • 2 large lengths of our antique restorers' recommended open-weave 100% cotton polishing cloth for streak-free buffing
  • A 'Gilded bee' pure Dartmoor beeswax scratch repair cube for repairing scratches and dents before polishing


  • A single 125ml jar will cover approximately 12m² or five to six standard size dining tables
  • 1L will cover approximately 96-100m² or 40 to 48 standard size dining tables


Our commitment to preserving the natural beauty of your wooden furniture has led us to improve our beeswax polish formula by incorporating a UV absorber. This addition has been scientifically proven to significantly lessen the harmful effects of UV radiation from direct sunlight on wooden surfaces.

By integrating a UV absorber into our trusted beeswax polish formula, we provide additional protection that absorbs even more of the harmful UV rays before they can damage the wood or its finish. This advanced protection is especially crucial for pieces exposed to direct sunlight, helping to greatly reduce discolouration and extend the life of your furniture.

While it does not block all UV rays entirely, it acts as a crucial additional barrier, extending the life of your furniture and keeping its colour and finish vibrant.

Environmental Responsibility

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
  • 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

Waxed Wood sculpture: fantastic results!:

I am very satisfied with the results and the advice! Thank you for producing such a quality product! This is a restoration unfortunately started prior to my working on this piece. My decision to wax is based on a desire to preserve as much of the original artists intent as I can interpret. “Sarah” is also a family heirloom and my mother’s request before she passed away that I restore “her” to her former beauty.
After many, many hours of careful hand sanding, I applied a general teak oil, then your hard wax to fill some cracks only to help reduce future damage from humidity, etc. as this has been in my family for approximately 62 years, I can say “she” looks incredible

It is not often in life that your expectations are fully met. With Gilboys wax my expectations were exceeded. Quality of the highest degree is the only way to describe this amazing product

Inge (Amersfoort, NL)

Very good purchase, works really good


Lovely products. Third purchase of wax from this smashing company. Also have a tin of the hard wax. Followed the video of how to use each wax and our old pine table top looks great. Highly recommended.

New and Restoration Finishing

I have been involved in woodwork for a large part of my working life and still am even though I have been retire for some years. I have tried all sorts of finishes from home recipes of gurus to chemical brews most of which serve some sort of purpose .
None of them come near the results I have been able to achieve using Gilboys Hard Wa Oils and waxes. The only problem I have with them is they are in Pomgolia and I am in Australia . Freight rates are crippling . Cheers Rolf

Excellent product

Bought for on-going care and refurb of our white oak furniture, several years old now but going strong! We have not as yet used the product except for a small test, it works very well indeed so far. As described and shown on TV, just what we want. Thanks for the sun flowers, we don't have to buy any this year! Packaging an inspiration for others. The only downside of the deal was that the carrier tracking did not work at all, We were, fortunately, at home when delivered. Thoroughly recommend.


First rate product.

Andrea Hodgkinson (Islington, GB)

Excited to start stripping my “new to me” antique oak table and chairs. I will definitely take before and after photos

Ercol chairs and sideboard

I used Gilboys hard wax oil and then wax polish, the results are fantastic

Janet Chandler (Reading, GB)
Brilliant !

A successful first try at renovating a much loved Ercol 1960’s table sadly stored away for many years. Thanks to your 1st class products, helpful video and friendly service the table will have pride of place in my grandson's first home.
