Daddy Van's Furniture Polish Beeswax and Lavender with Sweet Orange Oil -- 5 oz
STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL FINISH, SOFT & LOVELY SCENT!!
I read somewhere that beeswax polish was the best for wood furniture, and bought this one online to try on an antique dresser with a beat-up finish. What an amazing experience! I cannot say enough great things about this stuff! The scent was a brilliant surprise: it is like an aromatherapy candle or something - NO chemical smell of any kind, just lovely soft refreshing scent. The wood looks SPECTACULAR. I would not have believed it. With one application of this product, almost ALL of the scars, scratches and stains in the wood finish disappeared, and my dresser has a beautiful, luminous, deep rich soft glow to the wood. I have tried the spray-on furniture polishes, lemon oil, etc, but nothing comes close to what this does. It has been over a month since I rubbed my dresser down with this product, and the beautiful glow is still there; the shine has not 'sunk in' or faded away. I wish I had discovered this many years ago. I will never use anything but this on my wood furniture from now on. Absolutely amazing and well worth the cost. Life changing. Thanks Daddy Van's! And thanks Vitacost!

Great results without the harsh chemicals and odor
I am fortunate enough over the years to have been handed down some lovely older wood furniture from my Grandparents, and also inherited their home, which has beautiful wood doors, trim and bannister.. The only trouble has been the upkeep; my sinuses don't care for the harsh fumes left by big-box store brands of wood cleaners and polishes!
Now, I use the Seventh Generation wood cleanser, and follow it up with Daddy Van's polish, and all I can say is WOW! The results are much better than anything I have tried before! A few of the more worn pieces of furniture look very nearly brand new! My husband and I were frankly amazed, and pleasantly surprised. :)
As far as I have seen, both the cleaner and polish have been quite gentle on even the oldest varnish finishes. That being said, I always spot test on inconspicuous areas before using on the full piece!
My only complaint is the price, because the tin is kind of small. Maybe it's just my furniture, but the thirsty wood absorbed a lot of the polish during use, so the product didn't go very far. I'm hoping now that the wood is properly cleaned and conditioned, follow-up care will mean less product being needed to achieve the desired results. Even so, the amazing results coupled with the absence of nasty fumes still makes this product worth the price. Don't forget to clean the wood with a natural cleanser first, though!
