Directions for Use
▫ The surface should be dusted to remove all loose particles.
▫ Any wood filling or wood staining (water or alcohol stains work best) must be done before the oil is applied.
▫ There is no need to thin Hemp Oil due to its natural thin viscosity and saturating abilities.
▫ Furniture or Finish Restoration Application
♡ General Application
▫ Apply Hemp Oil with a lint free cloth, such as an old t-shirt.
▫ Wipe onto surface liberally
▫ Allow oil to soak into the surface for 40 minutes.
▫ Wipe off any excess oil that may be on the surface.
▫ Allow Hemp Oil to 7 to 10 days before use.
♡ Raw Wood Application
▫ The first coat of hemp oil should be a liberal one.
▫ Apply with a natural bristle brush, sponge brush, or a thin foam roller.
▫ Allow this coat to sit for a minimum of 40 minutes so the oil can soak in. When it soaks into the wood, apply another coat immediately. Continue to apply coats, one after another, until the wood is saturated and stays glossy for a minimum of 40 minutes up to 1½ hours. If eighty percent of an area stays glossy, the wood cells are saturated and this can be considered your final coat.
▫ Now, wipe down the surface with clean rag material removing any excess oil that is on the surface. Continue to check for any seeping in the next few hours, and rub this off as well. Do not allow standing oil on the surface overnight. Any standing or puddles of oil should be wiped away with clean rags.
▫ Now the hemp oil is in its curing stage.
▫ Hang oil soaked rags up separately to dry.
▫ Hemp Oil will take 7 to 10 days for a minimum cure and 15 to 30 days for a full cure.
