Cleaning wood furniture can be a little scary, especially if you are a lover of antiques like I am! I have used some store bought furniture polishes that worked okay, but some can be super harsh. I recently started making my own homemade furniture polish and love it! Not only does it clean my wood furniture surfaces, it also helps to moisturize and protect the wood without damaging it. I make mine with a nice lemon scent, but you can totally leave the lemon essential oil out if you prefer. I am sharing my recipe here with you and I am also including a short video showing exactly how I make it...be sure to catch it at the end of this post!

What You Need:
1 cup of distilled water (tap water is fine, but distilled water helps stretch the shelf life)
½ cup of Almond Oil
½ cup of White Vinegar
2o drops of Lemon Essential Oil
Start by pouring 1 cup of water into a clean spray bottle.
Next, add ½ cup of Almond Oil.
Now add ½ cup of White Vinegar.
If you'd like a little extra cleaning help and a nice lemon scent, add 20 drops of Lemon Essential Oil.
Give it a good shake before each use. Because there are no binding chemicals, the ingredients separate when left sitting.
Simply spray a liberal amount onto a clean cloth and use to clean any wood surfaces...works great on painted furniture and butcher block and cutting boards too!
