I got this neat new book called 1001 Secret Household Formulas and this one was in it...thought I'd share :) Preparation time is sitting time on floors.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 13 cup linseed oil (food grade)
  • 12 cup beeswax
  • 2 tablespoons wheat germ oil (fresh)
  • 34 cup turpentine


  1. Place the beeswax into a medium pan and hear on low until all the wax is dissolved, then add oils.
  2. Remove from heat and stir well.
  3. Allow to cool to room temperature, then add the turpentine and stir well.
  4. Use a sponge to apply the polish. Allow the polish to set for about 16 hours(this is best to do at night and allow to dry overnight).
