When finishing your hives with tung oil , its beneficial to thin the oil that is used for the first coat so that it will penetrate the wood more deeply. Subsequent coats of tung oil can be applied without thinning. What is most commonly used to dilute tung oil is mineral spirits, which is a petroleum-based solvent. Citrus solvent is a natural alternative to mineral spirits. Simply mix some tung oil with an equal amount of citrus solvent and apply a liberal first coat. A detailed instruction sheet is included.
NOTE: Although this is a natural product, it can be hazardous and must be handled with care. It is combustible and is also eye, skin and lung irritant.
