Millie’s All-Purpose Penetrating Tung Oil

Millie’s All-Purpose Penetrating Tung Oil is a part of our Botanical line of tung oil wood finishes.

Containing no chemical driers, Millie’s is food safe, low VOC, and our only oil formulation that allows a matte sheen. The combination of beeswax and Polymerized Tung Oil create a classic “butcher block”, food safe wood finish.

An environmentally friendly option for a “butcher block” matte, tung oil wood finish. Milllie’s All Purpose Penetrating Tung Oil uses the same polymerization process as all of our Tung Oil wood finishes, however the solvent used is our proprietary, all botanical, citrus solvent, DiCitrusol™. This formulation contains no petroleum solvents and is a low VOC product.

Sutherland Welles Botanical Polymerized Tung Oil line was created to offer an alternative to petroleum solvent finishes. The solvent is made from the peels of oranges used for the juice industry creating another use from a waste product!

The composition of this line is 99% botanical, tree derived material, so even though it does have a VOC emission the entire raw material source helps to sequester carbon year after year. Working with a natural, all tree product that is sustainably grown and harvested makes the completed formulation a great ecological choice for any project.

Millie’s is the perfect finish for wood cooking utensils, bowls and butcher blocks that you cut on. Millie’s is also used by bowl turners who turn green wood. The piece is turned and Millie’s is applied and it’s placed in a paper bag to dry. Millie’s allows the moisture in the green wood to gently release without stressing the wood fibers that often create checking and cracking in the drying process.
