Osmo Polyx-Oil is a general-purpose Hardwax-Oil wood finish that uniquely combines the advantages of natural oils and waxes in one product. It is stain-resistant, water repellent, and abrasion-resistant and results in a surface that is pleasant to the touch. In comparison to conventional finishes, the use of plant ingredients creates a more even color and more harmonious appearance.
This finish is derived from natural vegetable oils and waxes. Resistant to water, dirt, beer, wine, cola and saliva, Osmo Polyx-Oil is microporous and molecularly bonds with the wood, meaning it does not crack, flake, peel or blister.
The advanced formula of Polyx-Oil has been specially engineered in Germany to be the first Hardwax-Oil available on the North American market that can be easily applied with a brush or roller, with no buffing necessary!Can be spot-repaired and/or restored/renewed with no sanding required, therefore wood never needs complete sanding and refinishing again.
Coverage rates: 0.125L = 30 sq. ft. 0.75L = 194 sq. ft. 2.5L = 645 sq. ft.
Note: Oils enhance the natural tone of wood (permanent wet effect). Applying the product too generously and insufficient ventilation lead to delays in drying.

Project two, I finished a kitchen table, ash with walnut accents, using the oil for cutting boards. It wasn't quite glossy enough so the second coat was received the gloss oil. Overall these oils are expensive but cover a decent amount of area. My first project, I finished a live edge white oak table. I didn't want the amber effect which most oils produce. The natural oil lured me in with the claim of no amber (adding a hint of white in the oil). I absolutely love the results. I applied the oils with a polishing pad via my 6" orbital sander. OMG this stuff is so forgiving and easy to use I'll never go back to Poly. I just wish it was more affordable and available.
I used this product on a coffee table and two end table made of ash. I am very impressed with both the ease of application and the finished look of the tables. Will be my go to finish from now on.
