Product Description

essentials Pure Tung Oil is a natural oil obtained by pressing the seed from the nut of the tung tree (Vernicia fordii). Tung oil hardens upon exposure to the air and the resulting look that is transparent, deep & almost a wet look. Used mostly for finishing and protecting Timber, Tung Oil can also be used for lubricating & protect metal surfaces. Our Natural Tung Oil is Toy Safe & is Environmentally Eco-Friendly

Suitable for almost any wooden surface including:

  • Kitchen Worktops
  • Turned Items
  • Interior & Exterior wood
  • Hardwood Floors & Furniture
  • Boat decks
  • Skirting boards
  • Gates
  • Musical instruments

Tung Oil is naturally water, food and alcohol resistant. It is safe for food contact when dry and can be used for salad bowls and chopping boards, however, please note Tung Oil is extracted from nuts and may cause an allergic reaction even once cured. With it being a penetrating oil it allows the wood to age gracefully and develops a natural patina.

Our pure tung oil has a low environmental footprint.  essentials Tung oil is non-toxic and doesn't contain VOCs.

Tung Oil is extracted from nuts and may cause an allergic reaction


Pure Tung Oil should be thinned with White Spirits for the first 2-coats to help the oil penetrate into the timber, reducing the white spirit content as you progress (50:50 1st coat / 75:25 second coat / 3rd coat pure tung oil).  Wipe on a thin coat using finishing tissue or cotton rags, leave for 20-minutes & wipe over the surface with a clean cloth removing away any excess oil. Leave 24-hours to dry and then cut back / 'denib' lightly with a fine-grit abrasive paper or 0000-grade wire wool (for best results use the paper and then the wire wool to achieve a flat surface for the second coat).

Tung Oil is suitable for use with exterior oak and teak.
