Candelilla / Olive Oil Handcrafted Vegan Finish - Deluxe and Ultra Deluxe Wood Sets
Do you wonder why you should opt to have your wood pieces finished with polish? The polish brings out the grain in the wood and helps protect the moisture in the wood so it does dry out. We find the polish also gives the blocks a silky texture.
Our vegan polish is handcrafted by Imaginations Unbound with candelilla wax and olive oil. Candelilla wax is produced from leaves of candelilla plants. The polish does not have a noticeable smell but does leave a nice shine to the blocks.
We apply our polish in a thick layer and then put the blocks in a dehydrator at a little over 100 degrees Farienheight for 48 hours. The high temperature helps the wood to absorb more of the oil and wax than if we just wipe it on and off at the same time. After the blocks are done in the dehydrator we use a lint-free cotton cloth to wipe off any excess oil and polish them to smooth exterior.
