For the do-it-yourself crowd, the online "Guide to Less-Toxic Products" (from the Environmental Health Association of Nova Scotia) suggests concocting your own all-natural wood floor wax by warming up a combination of olive oil, vodka, beeswax and carnauba wax. Once the concoction is allowed to harden, it can be rubbed directly into wood floors with rags.
Ingredients: Sugar, corn starch, partially hydgrogenated veg oil (cottonseed, soybean), dextrin, soya lecithin, confectioners glaze, FD&C Red#40 Lake, FD&C Yellow #6 Lake, natural and artificial flavour, carnauba wax, FD&C Yellow#5 Lake, FD&C Blue#1 Lake.
He'd found pieces of rare carnauba wax and ordinary paraffin wax.
* Furniture Polish * Melt 2 1/2 ounces olive oil, 1 1/2 ounces coconut oil, and I ounce each beeswax and carnauba wax. Add 4 ounces distilled water and blend.
Oils 3/4 cup of one of the following: Apricot (a good light oil for oily skin) Almond (for a rich non-greasy or heavy oil) Olive (great for a rich, thick, wintertime cream) Soy (for a nice economical cream) (You can use a blend of the oils as long as 3/4 of a cup is the final measurement.) 1/3 cup Coconut Oil 2 Tablespoons Mango Butter or Kokum Butter (These are nut butters from the seeds of these plants.) 1/2 ounce Shea Butter, Candelilla Wax, or Carnauba Wax (Both waxes are plant source waxes.
New and updated profiles on the following chemicals have been completed: Brilliant Blue FCF; Carnauba wax; Castor oil; 1,3-Dichloro-2-propanol, and 3,4-Dihydrocoumarin.
An entire year's crop can be destroyed and prices inflated by adverse weather conditions, such as the storms that blew through northeastern Brazil in 1998, thereby decimating the harvest of carnauba wax and nearly doubling prices within a two-week period.
* To better resist surface staining and etching, apply a penetrating sealer and then a hard wax, such as carnauba wax, or a newer natural-synthetic blend.
