Is this product vegan-friendly or does it contain animal ingredients? Thanks.
I didn't eat it so I didn't pay attention. Works great...have used it many times!!!!
Thanks Richard, I will.
Thanks Mike. Looking to use it to care for a cutting board, want the wood to be free of animal products (I suspect the oils may be derived of fish - since you can have Kosher fish products and I haven't seen a lot of vegan items identified as Kosher - probably no need.
I wouldn't know more than what the label says. Seems probable that it is vegan friendly based on what it says, but you'd have to ask the manufacturer.
Does this dry to the touch or does it stay oily? Would this be a good finish to put on a wooden baby rattle?
Its purpose is to keep open pore wood lubricated. It is not oily at all but the wood does feel less dry, as it should. I don't know enough about its makeup to know if it should be ingested by a baby.
It does not dry to the touch but is absorbed deep into wood grains. I can't say for any certainty that using it on a wooden baby rattle would be acceptable due to health standards for babies. Personally I would not let a baby or child place the rattle in their mouth for a variety of reasons.
Since it is oil, the product will initially be oily. We use it on butcher block and it eventually absorbs in.
Hi, Johnny. I wish I could answer your question, but I have only used this on cutting boards and knife handles. I'm not certain I'd use it on a baby rattle, since the little ones insist on chewing on them so much. For the cutting boards, they are in use so often I've never noticed if they're really dry to the touch; and knife handles, ditto. Used and then washed right away and so I'm not certain what that means for the finish. They don't feel slippery, but then, I'm not chewing on them, either. I hope someone can answer this question more fully for you! Good luck! And how sweet of you to think of making a baby rattle.
How long does the oil take to dry? Applied it a week ago and the wood still leaves oil residue on paper.
You should only let it sit over night. Rub is into the surface with a soft towel or buff to seal the oil finish.
It does take a long time to dry, probably less in my desert climate than anything farther east. I don't know where you are. I found that for my cutting boards, I went back and applied a light coat and then rubbed and rubbed with a dry cloth until I got tired. That second application over the sticky surface, plus all the extra rubbing, seemed to do the trick for me.Otherwise, I really like this oil for its kindness to the wood surfaces in my kitchen (cutting boards, knife handles, etc.) and recommend it to everyone I know who cares about our environment and what we put in it. Hope this answer helps!
I usually rub it in lightly. Depending on what type of wood grain you are treating some may take longer. Mine was birds eye maple and it took quite some time as the density is very hard. Either way, the product is safe and natural and that is why I bought it.
We only use it on open pore home furniture. It sounds as if there are 2 possibilities here: the customer is using it on wood with a non-porous finish so that the oil is not being absorbed into the wood or the customer is pouring too much oil so that it is ponding and not absorbed into the wood.
This product is applied by hand and rubbed into the wood. Wipe off excess. Sounds like you still have an excess on the wood, rub it in and wipe dry.
I let the product penetrate the wood for about 20 minutes then I wipe what is left. I had to problem with residue.
do I have to wash my counter with soapy water before using circa 1850 terra nova oil since it's brand new bambou counter that we are doing?
we just bought the wood and I would like to treat it with the oil but I don't know if I have to wash the wood before oiling it since it is brand new?
Can I use NaturOil on my bamboo cutting boards ?
Yes, it is food safe.
what is square footage of product?
Interesting question, but I can't give a definitive answer. I used the stuff to restore an antique 18" diameter butcher's block. I put three coats on over a period of 2 hrs, and it looks great. As for coverage -- based on using about a fifth of the bottle -- I'd say you could soak about 24 sq ft of porous wood, much more if the wood has been treated within the last 50 yrs.
In other words, how much does it cover in terms of square footage?Depends totally on hominy coats and what type of wood you are treating. Can you be more specific in your question?
Can this product be shipped?
Can I use this product on teak furniture?
Yes. I have older danish teak from my mother and also newer teak from Asia( I think). I use a micro cloth to put on the oil and then with a cleaner micro cloth rub off. A little "elbow grease" is required. Love the product.

Brought my old cutting board back to life!!!
So easy to use; gave a beautiful result to old cuttings board that I thought I'd have to throw out!!
I had very dried out wood walls in my cottage bedroom ... mainly from sunshine bleaching out the natural oils in the wood over a 30 year period. The circa 1850 naturoil 8 oz. bottle worked wonders. Easy to apply, went a long ways and brought back a healthy luster to the wood. I am buying more.Joel H. (Long Point, Ontario)

Prior to discovering Terra Nova NaturOil we used regular mineral oil on our butcherblock countertops. While it protected the wood, it tended to stay on the surface and bleed into anything left on the counter. NaturOil absorbs into the wood quickly and seems to bleed very little. [...]

It does a great job on cutting board after several coats, it seals the wood and turns a nice golden color. Board are easy to clean after use. I coat mine now every two to three weeks as I use it often.
