Yes, my going slogan these days is… “There’s an oil for that.” Because there always is! A teenager asked me the other day if I put essential oils on vegetables to make them more healthy. Ha ha..No! I do not do that, but I’m sure there are people who do – I would in a dressing or dip 😉
Well, this Homemade Natural Wood Furniture and Floor Polish with essential oils is no different. Those essential oils give you the aromatherapy scent you want in your home and often kill germs in the air as you polish! Bonus!
On a side note, if you want to learn more about Essential Oils, there’s actually a FREE online Essential Oil Summit coming up in May. I was interviewed and am excited to be a “bonus podcast” in the Summit as well.

Ok, on to the Furniture polish.
All you’ll need is 3 Ingredients. That’s it! And it creates a shine just as good as the nasty stuff that gives me asthma. You can add whatever essential oils that you like.
If you want a Citrus Scent: then add some Orange, Bergamot, Grapefruit, or Lemon essential oil, or a combination of the four.
The Other Two Ingredients:
I said it was simple. Jojoba Oil has a very long shelf life, is a light oil, and has little to no scent. This makes it my first choice of oil. But you can use Grape seed, apricot kernel, sweet almond, or even olive oil. I like to use Organic Apple Cider Vinegar, but you can use plain white distilled vinegar as well. Both work great.

You can adjust the ratios depending on where you live. If you live in a more humid climate, you may want to reduce the oil even more. An extremely dry climate may require you to increase the oil ratio until you have your favorite shine.
- Combine all ingredients in a spray bottle or seal-able container.
- Shake well before each use. The vinegar will separate from the oil. But when you shake it well you'll get a combination of the two when you use it (just like salad dressing).
- Spray lightly on a cloth, or directly on the wood, and shine.
Let me know if you’ve tried using anything similar and what your results were.
