A unique blend of oils to keep all your wooden products looking their best.
A blend of walnut oil, candelilla wax and cold-pressed lemon oil, this semi-solid balm is suitable for boards, bowls, utensils, even tabletops. There’s no added colours, just a hint of a fresh lemon scent and all the moisture your wood needs.
Simply apply with a lint-free cloth all over your item, allow the wood to absorb the balm for half an hour then buff with a dry cloth to remove any residue. Selwyn House recommends applying this balm at least every few months, but it can be used more often whenever your items look in need of moisture and rejuvenation.
- plant-based, vegan friendly and free of petroleum-based oils
- supplied in a 60ml screw-top recyclable aluminium container
Selwyn House is formed by Sean Best and Ellie Smalls, who met studying Fine Art at Leeds Arts University.
Always drawn to making things, Sean bought a second-hand lathe and began teaching himself woodturning. Combining their creative talents, Sean & Ellie began to create small-batch handmade serveware & homeware from the best British-grown timbers they could get their hands on.
All the wood used for Selwyn House pieces is sourced as locally as possible to the workshop and is from trees which have grown in Britain. Most wood is bought from small independent sawmills, who either manage woodland around them or buy directly from local tree surgeons. The wood is milled and air-dried at these sawmills for a minimum of 18 months before it even comes to the workshop.
Working in small batches means they are able to source more unusual and characterful pieces of timber to work with and adapt designs to make the most of the wood.
All Selwyn House pieces are designed to be functional as well as beautiful.
