DIY Wood Polish Recipe #1

This recipe is designed to be used as a monthly polish. To treat the wood on a weekly basis when doing regular household cleaning, you can skip the essential oil drops, and simply mix together equal parts of the distilled white vinegar and olive oil.


  • ¼ cup distilled white vinegar
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 7 drop lemon or orange essential oil


  • Pour the distilled white vinegar and olive oil into a spray bottle or bowl.
  • Add the drops of essential oil.
  • Shake the bottle or stir the ingredients briskly in the bowl.
  • Spray onto the wood and rub the mixture in with a cotton cloth - or dip a cloth into the mixture and rub into the grain of the wood.
