DIY: Wood Furniture and Floor Polish with Essential Oils

Is your wood furniture or flooring starting to look dull and lifeless?

Wood furniture is an investment and it is important to take care of it. Although polishing wood furniture should only be done every couple months, it is important to continually keep it clean by dusting it or wiping it with a damp wet microfiber cloth.

Commercial wood polishes may look great 1-2 days after polishing, but initial impressive results can quickly fade and ultimately damage the wood. Not only are they harsh on wood furniture, they also contain chemicals and artificial fragrances that can cause irritation, or worse, health problems when proper safety precautions are not taken while using them.

Bring back the shine to your favorite tables, countertops, floors, and more with this simple recipe for homemade wood polish with dōTERRA essential oils.
