Grothouse Original Oil™ Finish

Grothouse Original Oil  Finish is the best product for keeping butcher blocks and wood countertops properly maintained. Grothouse Original Oil ™ is heavy weight pharmaceutical grade pure mineral oil and is used for lasting protection on wood surfaces. This finish is completely food safe and can be used on surfaces used for food preparation. This finish is hypoallergenic and contains no Tung oils. You can entertain guests with no concerns of nut allergies.

An advantage to using this finish is that it is fragrance free and color free. This finish needs to be renewed on a regular basis depending on the environment and amount of use. The surface should be oiled when it appears visually dry. Maintaining the finish is very important to the long term life of the wood surface, as well as keeping the surface protected from water.
