Sanctuary Bees Wax Polish is handmade by Benedictine monks at St Augustine's Abbey, Chilworth near Guildford, UK and is made using genuine turpentine and beeswax from the monastery apiary, following a traditional recipe which is sure to nourish and protect all manner of home furnishings from dining room tables to parquet floors.
This is a good, old-fashioned recipe, (turpentine and beeswax) and the smell reminds me so much of my grandfather who used to polish the furniture with a similar unguent. I took this tin home and set to work on my kitchen table which is a French, walnut, tipped, farmhouse table from around 1750. Central heating and summer temperatures had left it looking really dull - a fact that I hadn't noticed until I applied a little Benedictine magic! My table now glows and the wood feels silky and alive beneath my fingers. I am now going to apply to the whole house - that's how good it is! This is a twice per season, nourishing treatment for wood rather than an 'every week' furniture polish and require a little elbow grease!
