HOW TO USE HEMP OIL TO SEAL YOUR FURNITURE
Step 1) Prep your surface
Before you begin, make sure your surface is clean and dust free.
Step 2) Apply a coat of Hemp Oil
Don’t be alarmed by the colour! Hemp Oil is a deep green colour, but the colour will vary a bit between harvests. When first applied, Hemp Oil will deepen the colour of your finish but it will slowly lighten over time as the oil soaks in and cures.
You can use a lint-free rag, or a paintbrush to apply Hemp Oil, but our personal preference is a Wash Cloth. You don’t need much! Just wipe one thin coat over the surface and let it soak into the finish for 12 hours.
Step 3) Buff it dry
Once the Hemp Oil has been left to dry for 12 hours, you can use a dry, lint-free rag to buff away the excess. If you’d like to add more sheen, keep buffing to add a bit more lustre to the finish.
For higher traffic pieces like coffee table tops, we recommend adding a second or third coat for optimal durability. Hemp Oil will slowly wear away over time so it’s best to re-apply every 2-3 years as needed.
Since Hemp Oil is an all-natural product with no chemical additives, it can take about four weeks to fully cure. You can of course start using your furniture or piece almost right away, but be mindful of the finish and use it gently for the first week.
