Furniture Salve and its Amazing Uses!

Salve it Up!

I am fairly new to Wise Owls furniture salve but I can say it is one of my favorite products created.  I love that Wise Owl keeps our health and safety in mind when developing their products and they did just that when they created Furniture Salve.    

Wise Owl Furniture Salve is often called “magic in a can” for a good reason! I am stealing this phrase from Wise Owl because there really is no better way to say it. Furniture Salve is a 100% all natural hemp oil and wax-based salve without nasty fillers or solvents. The oils condition the surface while the waxes cure for a durable finish. There are so many things you can do with salve so think beyond furniture! You can revive, rejuvenate, protect and seal all in one step! So grab that can of salve and head over to raw or stained wood, seal Chalk Synthesis Paint, renew leather (shoes, belts, handbags, wallets), polish furniture, and your stainless-steel appliances (even the kitchen sink!), clear up foggy headlights, and even shine up old vinyl in cars.  Here is my favorite, the old smelly/musty drawers.  Just salve it up and walk away!

Furniture salve is available in a variety of scents, some of them seasonal.  Scent isn't your thing?  No worries! Furniture Salve is also available in unscented. Wise Owl describes each scent as follows:

Lemon Verbena:  Bright lemon and floral verbena combine to make our most popular scent.  The scent begins with verdant lime, grapefruit & lemon; then lavender, geranium rose & lemongrass complete the undertones adding a soft, woody musk. 

White Tea:  Quite possibly our most feminine scent, White Tea includes notes of bergamot, lavender, mandarin, thyme, ginger, and lemon.  It has a base profile of tea with a flowery finish.

Riotous Rain:  Many scents can be classified as either masculine or feminine, however Riotous Rain isn’t one of them. It has universal appeal with masculine woody and musk base notes, yet it has an enchanting fusion of herbs and amber that give it a feminine touch too, including sage, lavender, and orange.

Tobacco Flower:  A masculine masterpiece! It is bold and complex, leading with a top note of leather, tobacco, amber and musk. The middle is a spicy mixture of black tea and pepper, while the base note is aged teakwood with tones of patchouli and sandalwood.

Noir Moon:  A rich and sultry fragrance with notes of amber, tobacco, and sweet vanilla. This is truly a unique, warm, and delicious scent that includes coriander and spice!  Many say this scent is like a warm hug from Grandma.

Black Sea:  Includes airy, balanced notes. The sweet and salty oceanic accords combine with an undercurrent of amber, vanilla, cardamom, and clove giving it a spicy, masculine finish. 

Teakwood & Amber:  Spicy and sweet, amber and moss.  This androgynous scent is masculine and feminine at the same time. Bold and complex, leading with spicy top notes of ginger, peppercorn, vanilla and spice. The middle notes of amber, Himalayan salt and aged teakwood blend into the woody, deep base of sandalwood and amber, with the freshness of blood orange.

Foxtrot:  Cultivated by our great friend at Foxtrot Woodworks & Designs, Brent Haynes.  Saunter through an evergreen forest with an ax wielding lumberjack Cypress and Bayberry meets clean vetiver vibes. This salve has base notes of moss, fir, and eucalyptus. Middle notes of cypress and bayberry blend with rich undertones of citrus, musk, and earthiness. Packed with the power of Patchouli, mint, elemi, fir balsam, geranium, orange, patchouli, and vetiver essential oils that intensify the fresh foliage notes. This is a traditional masculine scent that had broad appeal due to the woodsy scents inspired by nature.

The Botanist:  The essence of the outdoors, this aromatic scent has a pleasing mix of fresh cut grass, botanical herbs, Japanese cherry blossoms, and violets.  Its top notes of green grass and bergamot lend to its outdoorsy feel. Soothing lavender and sage elevate the herbal aspect of the scent while a touch of oakmoss in the background adds depth. 

Cactus Blossom:  Cactus flower, white currant and jade are combined to form this luscious scent that is bright and fresh.  This salve was curated to reflect the emergence of spring after a long winter slumber. Sweet agave and water aloe enhance the fresh-cut green leaves and chrysanthemum petals, while base notes of patchouli and jade ground it with a pleasing earthiness. 

Citrus Mint:  Ripe, juicy grapefruit and garden-fresh mint are at the forefront of this super refreshing and sophisticated scent.  This salve scent is vibrant, cool, and crisp!   Hints of lavender, apple, rose, and rhubarb add a subtle sweetness, while thyme and bergamot lend a botanical twist to soften the fresh mint and tangy grapefruit high notes.

Bergamot Lime:  This fresh scent features bamboo foliage and green botanicals. The natural, subtle character of it is calming rather than overwhelming. It is a balance between citrus and bergamot essential oil that is well suited for aromatherapy.

Midsummer Rain:  Suggestive and unexpected, Midsummer Rain is a woody, spicy fragrance created to provoke.  Rose and chili pepper create an invigorating retro vibe, while patchouli and cedarwood accentuate this fragrance’s rich sensuality.

Bioluminescent Bae:  An aromatic freshness opens and lingers on the warm, addictive fullness of Cedar and Sandalwood from New Caledonia.  Bioluminescent Bae is an intense, woody, masculine fragrance with notes of musk, ginger, and jasmine that will leave you wanting more.

Egyptian Lotus:  Oaky, incense-filled temples and a passion for rare, precious spices and wood inspire this exotic scent.  Egyptian Lotus embraces you with exotic spices like cardamom, and then exposes its rich and dark blend of sensuality.

Bourbon Vanilla:  Oak-aged bourbon combine gently with Madagascar vanilla bean, hickory, dark amber, and touches of birch wood.  Bourbon Vanilla’s appeal is enhanced with crushed black peppercorns, spicy nutmeg, and golden clove bud.

Cozy + Currant:  A versatile scented holiday inspired furniture salve with wide appeal. This scent has an alluring balance of spicy and sweet, amber and moss. White currant and zesty lemon peel combine with airy ozone before giving way to a botanical heart of juniper and geranium. There is just a hint of peppermint in the base notes to reinforce the tart freshness of this inviting scent. 

This salve is infused with natural essential oils, including lemongrass, fir needle, orange, geranium. 

Walk in the Woods:  Walk in the Woods was influenced by our friend, Veteran and Artisan Brent Haynes of Foxtrot Woodworks and Design. This is our twist on bringing the fresh smell of summer inside. It’s the scent of an adventure exploring the hidden trails through the forest and the smell of sunlight slipping through the trees. The soft base notes of moss, fir, and mint add a hint of earthy depth and foliage. Middle notes of cypress and bayberry carry the scent of a soft breeze whispering through the evergreens, while notes of bright, fresh citrus breathe the zest of new life. It’s the scent of nature on a beautiful summer day, a true Walk in the Woods.
