~ Natural Pine Oil Furniture Polish ~

I've been using natural pine oil to dust and polish my furniture. This is the first time I used it and I'm very pleased with results.

~ Pine Oil ~

White Pine Needles
Olive Oil

I took the pine needles and cut them into small 1/2 inch pieces , put in pint jar and added olive oil to cover pine needles. Put in a dark , cool place for 6-8 weeks or longer. Strain , and it's ready. I plan to use a different oil with my next batch , olive oil is to expensive for cleaning , I'll keep it for cooking.

I recycled a mustard bottle to keep my oil in , it works great.

What a great idea! If you dont use OV, what oil would you suggest? I agree that it can be cost prohibitive, EVOO I mean.
