SoapStone Sealer & Wood Wax

An all natural, non-fading, protector of soapstone and wood

Finally an all-natural, earth-friendly product that can be used on Soapstone and wooden food contact items. “Soapstone Sealer” will provide a low luster wood finish on soapstone without the continuous reapplication that is required with mineral oil.

Soapstone Sealer and Wood Wax is made from food grade Walnut Oil and T 1 Carnauba Wax Flakes. There are no solvents added which means no VOCs (volatile organic chemical) or added fragrances. Soapstone Sealer is made with food-contact safe material. This means it is safe for food to touch or lay on the surface without fear of contamination. Walnut oil is a drying oil. As the walnut oil takes in oxygen it will polymerize or cure.

This is why walnut oil does not go rancid. It will cure before it can spoil.

Soapstone Sealer is made from all natural products and is not a petroleum product like mineral oil. Mineral oil, also known as liquid petrolatum, is a byproduct in the distillation of petroleum to produce gasoline. Mineral oil is a non-drying oil. What this means is that it does not evaporate but is picked up and transferred around the house. This is how it disappears off the soapstone.

Soapstone Sealer and Wood Wax is a light honey colored soft paste in the jar. When applied in a thin layer it will be transparent. Because it contains walnut oil, each jar will develop a thin self-sealing skin on top of the wax. Simply peel this away and dispose of it. Rub wax into the surface with a soft cloth or “T” shirt. Allow to set for 15 to 30 minutes, then buff off. Multiple layers of this wood finish may be applied a day apart from each other. In sinks made of soapstone please allow wax to dry over night before filling with water. Wooden ware, cutting boards, bowls and the like will also benefit from Soapstone Sealer and Wood wax because it acts as a great wood finish. Can be used on Honed Granite but would not work well on high-polished stone or stone with a high-polish sealer.

Soapstone Sealer and Wood Wax can be affected or removed with strong chemical such as vinegar and ammonia.

This product contains Walnut Oil. Some people with nut allergies may have a reaction. Walnut Oil however is a “Drying Oil” which mean that it will polymerize and cure (15 to 30 days) as opposed to other nut oils such as peanut, cashew and the like.

*Keep refrigerated for extended storage life. We have found it can develop a smell or starts to get grainy. However this does not seem to affect performance.

    I have used the product a couple times now and don’t know what I may be doing wrong. The surface tends to smudge when buffed. I am also getting water marks on it’s surface from containers left on the counter. I have tried washing and reapplying but am still really disappointed in the surface of my soapstone.

  • Dish Soaps like Dawn are good grease and oil cutter

  • Put it on heavy , let it sit longer maybe 30 minutes . Then wipe off . Sometimes with different vanes of stone it takes more than one coat

  • Benny , We did have a batch that got out that was not properly mixed . Send a email to and we will send a replacement

    Our new home construction home will be having countertops installed this week. We have soapstone going in the kitchen, on a bathroom vanity, and a bathtub surround. We also have a maple butcherblock being installed on our kitchen island. Would the Soapstone Sealer & Wood Wax be appropriate for the soapstone countertops in the kitchen and the bathroom, as well as the butcherblock? I’m also curious if this is a good idea to use on a butcherblock countertop because it may “seal” it to the extent where the wood cannot breathe? Wood has naturally-occuring antimicrobial properties, and I would imagine “sealing” it up may not be ok to do?
    Thank you in advance for your input! I can’t wait to try the product!

    • Yes this will work on both the butcher block and the soapstone . Make sure the soapstone is bone dry before application . The wood can still breathe , this would not totally seal it but does offer protection . Hot steam would go through the Wood Wax

  • Jackie Ashton

    Would you recommend using this on soapstone in a bathroom (i.e. vanity top and tub surround)? Or should the soapstone in a bathroom be left untreated, in its natural state?

    • In it natural state it will eventually get oils that stain it . Even just your hands or lotions . I think treating with Soapstone Wax will make it look better and be easier to clean

  • You can use our Citrus Solvent to flood the surface then wipe with paper towels . Or you can use a good dish soap like Dawn to wash the oil away . Mix a strong soapy solution of hot water and Dawn . You can use a soft scrub brush . Then wipe dry . Repeat if the counter does not go beck to a lighter color . It may not go all the way to the fresh look it had before the install . This is OK you just need as much mineral oil off it as you can

  • Wet a paper towel and wipe . Then take dry paper towels and wipe surface till dry and paper towels do not get wet with solvent

  • 32 oz will cover 100 sq feet . It will flush the mineral oil in one flooding

    I haven’t oiled my counters for two months-is it safe to apply this product without stripping?

    • If the counter tops are clean , you can apply real thin with a rag . For maintenance I recommend using 2 parts Citrus Solvent to 1 part Pure Tung Oil

    • You can apply over previous coat no problem
