Our original blend of beeswax, Brazilian carnauba wax, mineral oil, and orange oil is the perfect product to enhance the natural beauty and depth of grain in all woods, finished and unfinished. Feed-N-Wax was developed as the best follow-up to Restor-A-Finish for maintaining the newly restored finish.

What’s the difference between Feed-N-Wax and Citrus Shield Paste Wax?
Feed-N-Wax is a blend of beeswax, carnauba wax, and Orange Oil that is of a gel consistency. It is very easy to apply and buff off and is ideal for finishes that are dry, faded, cracking, or crazing. Citrus Shield Paste Wax contains much more of the harder carnauba wax (the hardest natural wax available). It provides a higher shine and greater protection. Citrus Shield is great for enhancing high gloss finishes and for unfinished woods – providing a natural hand rubbed finish. Both can be used on finished or unfinished woods.
Feed-N-Wax leaves wax, Orange and Lemon Oil clean wax build-up – are they compatible?
Yes they are compatible. “Build-up” is a combination of dirt, grime, wax etc. and is usually caused by a lack of cleaning and not by over-applying wax. A quality wax will not “build-up” but will dissolve and redistribute itself on every application while the excess should come off on the soft cloth every waxing. Orange Oil or Lemon Oil helps break down this excess build-up, however they do not remove all of the wax like many wood “cleaners” do. Feed-N-Wax should be used every two months or so depending on how dry the wood is, the type of wood finish, climate, etc. – Howard Oils can be used every time you dust.
