If you’re looking for a finish that won’t change the colour of your timber, won’t give overpower the natural beauty of the wood with a high gloss but will still protect the timber and smell nice, well, you’re in the right place!
Lemon Oil is a clear, low build finish. By that we mean that it’s a very thin liquid with a very low solids content, so no matter how much you apply it’s not going to build up to a discernible visible film on the surface. Instead it soaks in and seals the surface, offering a level of water resistance and protection against handling.
Normally applied with a brush or a cloth it’s very easy to use and covers well and doesn’t usually show overlaps, so it’s ideal for large areas which often look better without a high gloss.
And as you might expect, it has a pleasant lemon aroma too, although this does fade after a while.
