Millie's All-Purpose Penetrating Tung Oil
Millie's All Purpose Penetrating Tung Oil (with beeswax) was developed as a foolproof, easy-to-use, low-toxic, earth-friendly Polymerized Tung Oil that is safe to use on all types of porous surfaces, including unfinished wood such as salad bowls, butcher blocks, cutting boards, furniture, floors, wooden garden tool handles, timber frames and beams.
Millie's success is due to a low-toxic formulation and a simple process that completely saturates the surface with oil without having to run after each coat.
Millie's is totally botanical, made from all bio-degradable, all natural and plant-derived ingredients. It is formulated with Pure Polymerized Tung Oil - a vegetable oil, Di-Citrusol - a citrus-derived solvent and beeswax. There are no petroleum distillates or chemical driers added.
Polymerized (cooking) Tung Oil, strengthens the oil's molecular structure making it more durable and resistant to environmental stresses. Cooking the oil also develops a finish that is durable yet flexible. Di-Citrusol is a low-toxic, citrus thinner used to keep the oil fluid so it will penetrate. The beeswax allows maximum saturation which ensures protection of the surface and provides a low lustre.

Prepare the unfinished wood surface to a hand planed surface or 220 grit sandpaper. Generously apply Millie's using a natural bristle brush or 100% cotton cloth. Allow the oil to completely soak into the wood. Do Not wipe any off. Additional coast can be applied after the previous coat has been absorbed by the wood. Most wood species will absorb 3-4 applications.
