Hemp Oil dries to a matte finish and will not produce a gloss or even much sheen. Boasting qualities such as food contact safe, hypoallergenic, all natural VOC’s, and no need for a solvent to thin the oil. This naturally thin viscosity oil will penetrate porous surfaces well. Use on bare wood, over milk paint, chalk paint, cutting boards, carved utensils, and to revive old wood finishes.
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 Co. 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, such as cutting boards, wooden utensils, 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.
The 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.
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
- 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 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.
Hemp Oil can last with ease for multiple years on the shelf. Here are some guidelines to help you store it properly so it can be used for your next project.
- Make sure the lid on the Hemp Oil packaging is tightly screwed on. This will keep air exchange from happening in the container.
- Store the bottle in a dry, moderate temperature environment. A place where it won’t freeze or become excessively hot. Freezing of the oil will make the natural fats separate from the oil. Excessive heat can cook the oil to the point where it cures in the bottle.

Hints & Tips
- Hemp Oil can be applied pure to any porous surfaces.
- Hemp Oil is also a great wood finish restorer. It can repair worn wood finishes just by simply wiping it onto the surface of the wood.
- Hemp Oil is especially useful for sealing and protecting wooden kitchen items such as cutting boards, wooden utensils, wooden bowls, and the like!
- The number of coats of oil to be applied will be determined by the intended use of the piece. One to two coats are enough for decorative work, paneling and molding. For surfaces that receive moderate to heavy use or handling need a minimum of three and on up to six coats for maximum protection. Hemp Oil is best used for lightly to moderately used items. Pure Tung Oil is more durable and thus should be used for surfaces expected to get heavy use.
- Apply till the surface reaches the saturation point. This will be evident as the surface will not absorb more oil.
- Renewal and/or maintenance coats are thinly applied with cheesecloth, lint-free cloths (old bed sheets work well), or old t-shirt material on an as need be basis.
- Do not get hung up on the number of coats, let the wood tell you when it has reached its maximum saturation.
- The Hemp Oil will be in the wood up to the surface not on the wood surface like varnish or Polyurethane top coat. The end result is more like seasoning a cast iron pan. This product will give you a surface that will stand up to use and spills: water will bead on the surface.
- After the Hemp Oil has completely cured (minimum 30 days) cleaning of the surface can be done using hot water and mild soap, such as dish soap. Avoid using hard chemicals or acids for cleaning.
