Heritage Natural Finishes (formerly Land Ark Northwest) makes small batch, high quality finishes that are used extensively by fine craftsmen and DIY home owners. Their simple, but effective, plant based formulations are created using only naturally purified Linseed Oil, pure Tung Oil, pine rosin, unbleached beeswax, and a solvent extracted from orange peels.

The Linseed oil penetrates deeply into wood, while Tung oil adds hardness and durability. Both of these ingredients are so pure they are listed as food safe by the FDA. The beeswax is filtered, but unbleached and free of chemical additives. Besides adding visual depth to the grain, beeswax slows evaporation so that the oils have more time to sink into the wood.  Heritage Natural uses only top-grade, crystal-free and water-white pine rosin that combines with the beeswax on the wood surface and fortifies the mixture. Orange oil is distilled from the peel that’s a by-product of industrial juicing and is, perhaps, the safest solvent available today.

Heritage Natural offers 4 finishes for wood: Original, Exterior, Concentrated Finishing Oil, Liquid Wax End-Sealer. They also make a formula especially for earthen floors as well as selling their pure Linseed Oil, Tung Oil and Citrus Solvent individually. The Original and Exterior finishes share the same formula with the exception that the Exterior Finish contains a mildew-cide and UV guard. The Concentrated Finish has less solvent than the Original and gives a richer look. If used alone, it may need to be rubbed into the wood to ensure it penetrates deep into the fibers. The Liquid Wax End Sealer was originally used to seal the ends of logs in cabin construction, but can be applied to add shine, when buffed, to wood previously finished with other Heritage Natural products.
