How To Care For Your Olive Wood

Caring for olive wood is very simple and straightforward. When looked after properly olive wood can last a very long time. By following the techniques below, you will be able to prolong the life of your olive wood items as well as maintain the natural colour of them.

You should never leave your items to soak in water or even use the dishwasher. This is because the wood can absorb the water and cause it to swell. Instead, hand wash them with hot water with a dash of soap.

Make sure you regularly use oil to oil your olive wood. Any food grade cooking oil will work, such as: coconut oil. I recommend using Olive Oil. Make sure you only use a small amount of oil.
