When should I use hemp oil instead of wax?

As stated above, hemp oil is natural, so it’s the ideal finish for customers who are sensitive to chemicals. It’s a food safe finish that can be used on cutting boards, butcher blog counters and kitchen tables. Hemp oil is also great for projects that will be used outside. Once it cures (after approximately 30 days), it protects and wears beautifully in the elements. Wax will break down and emulsify in the heat. We do not recommend waxing pieces that will be in the heat, sun or rain.

For an extra durable interior top coat, apply a coat of hemp oil and let dry (12 – 24 hours), then apply wax on top. Remember wax over oil, never oil over wax!
