Citrus Burnishing Oil





Product Description

Hampshire Sheen’s Citrus Burnishing Oil leaves a silky smooth, fresh-smelling food and toy-safe (BS EN 71-3:2019) satin finish on your turned pieces.

This oil can be easily applied and then burnished dry in a matter of minutes and can be overcoated with waxes or lacquers if you wish.

Use multiple coats for a water and oil-resistant finish suitable for salad, fruit and snack bowls whilst barely yellowing or changing the natural colour of the wood.

Hampshire Sheen, Citrus Burnishing Oil, will make wood figuring and colours ‘pop’ with just one coat and leave a silky smooth satin finish on the wood surface after two or more applications.

Ideal for use on items requiring a satin finish. Also suitable for fruit and salad bowls.

Colour and Aroma
Pale translucent brown in the bottle. It will not overly darken the wood surface when applied. It has the aroma of citrus fruits, which dissipates as the solvent dries. The piece is suitable for use when the aroma has completely gone.

Supplied in a 500ml ‘berg top’ tin bottle.

Store in a cool, dry place, ideally between 10° and 30°C (50° and 90°F) Where possible. Protect from extreme heat and freezing. Keep out of direct sunlight.

Longevity – Use By
Kept according to instructions, you can expect the product to last around 12 months from opening, depending on how often it is used. Left alone, it is very slow drying. 

Food Contact and Toy Safe?
Yes. Tested to EN71-3.
