Squeezed from industrial hemp plants. Very light nutty aroma. Dries to a matte finish. Will never produce a gloss or even much sheen.
All natural VOC’s and solvent-free drying oil finish. Hemp oil by The Real Milk Paint Company can be used on bare wood, over milk paint, chalk paint, and to revive old wood finishes. This naturally thin viscosity oil will penetrate well on porous surfaces.
Safe for wood items in kitchens and countertops. Less durable and not as water resistant as Pure Tung Oil. Great for lightly used items. Takes 7 to 10 days for a partial cure, 15 to 30 for a full cure.
Color of oil can range from a light green to golden yellow depending on weather conditions and time of harvest. Primary advantage over Pure Tung Oil is the viscosity of Hemp Oil in that it requires no thinning with Citrus Solvent. However, it can be thinned with Citrus Solvent if a thinner viscosity is required
Hemp Oil is not reported to cause allergic reactions. However, we recommend that sensitive individuals do their own evaluation.
Some other’s are promoting Hemp Oil as a good way to revive leather boots or other leather goods. DON’T DO IT! Because Hemp Oil is a drying oil it will soak into leather and dry. This will cause the leather to crack and prematurely destroy your leather goods. Repeated applications of Hemp Oil to leather will just speed of the destruction. Use oil products made to treat leather. These will protect your leather goods for the long term
