Beeswax Oil

Our products are basically finished with beeswax oil. Recently, many people are worried about a “sick house” syndrome (in which certain synthetic materials induce nausea). Then, we started choosing the material which is no harm for environment and human body as good as possible. The furniture finished with beeswax oil needed some maintenance than poly urethane finished or lacquer finished ones. However, doing maintenance of furniture by yourself will make you feel a strong attachment for them. And also, it makes your furniture last long and it would be the consideration of environment.

How to make


“Beeswax” is the wax which is secreted by honeybees, and bees make it for making their hive. Beeswax maker gather wasted beehives after taking honey from the apiarist in Japan. Beehives are melted by heating in hot water, and take away refuse by cotton cloth. Blending this beeswax and organic Perilla seeds oil (the first squeezed) become our beeswax oil.
