Drying from neglect, or got "French legs"? A How-To in wood care.

Updated on January 29, 2010

The Magick Touch


"Wood pomade", made from bees wax and olive oil, is the thoughtful touch in home-planet-care. In most of our houses, wood holds a special place. From stairways with sturdy treads worn smooth, to rows of dining-room chairs, wood is a friend that can last more than a lifetime, if kept in good condition.

In the modern life spin-cycle, wood needs to be remembered and added to the programme. We are privileged to live in a world of trees. But, like the "old lady rocking in her chair by the fire", we have a tendency to walk around the care of our "old things". A really cherished rocking chair would be rubbed and oiled, and the old lady would be too. But all too likely she has not had a "soothing massage" for many a year, and neither has the chair.

In the home-care department, an easy-to-apply spray can of "furniture polish" gets the job. But it's just not quite the same. Thick and sticky beeswax, melted into olive oil, offers nourishment and protection to wood in the same way it revitalises hair and skin. The basic recipe is the same. Pomade gives the rich glow of "health" back to chairs that have been polished but unfed for a while and become a little unsteady on their pins as a result.

Like remembering to greet the old lady in her chair, a little goodness can go a long way. It takes a lifetime's care to still see the wood from the trees.

The base remedy for all kinds of pomade remains the same. Oil and wax are blended with fresh plant material to create a protective, nourishing salve.
