Non-toxic finishes



Updated 2023-06-13

So many finishes have toxic chemicals and metallic drying agents. Here are some widely-used non-toxic finishes.

  • Beeswax and jojoba oil
    • This is what I use on wooden spoons, cutting boards, and rolling pins. 2 parts jojoba oil and 1 part beeswax, melted in a double boiler.
  • Beeswax and raw linseed
    • Will leave a slightly yellow tint, but more durable than jojoba or soap, because linseed dries.
  • Soap finish
