I was looking for ways to naturally revive these old kitchen cupboards. They were a mess, full of old scruff marks and scratches which can easily be removed with Beeswax furniture polish or coconut butter. A safe, natural, and effective way to bring new life to wood furniture and cabinets. Well since I didn't have any of those in the house, I looked around for what I did have. All I found was Shea Butter face cream by Maiga and thought well if it works on my face, it should work on wood and it's all natural. So I tried it and it worked wonders, I was so excited about the results. Here are the before and after photos. Simply clean your item surface first, and take a cloth or paper towel and put a bit of Shea butter on it and rub over the markings on the wood surfaces. You can also use it to polish finished furniture, to clean up damaged pieces, or as a stand-alone finish on unfinished wood. Easy as that. Make sure you keep some for your face. You can even make sanitizing cream with this Aloe Vera Shea Butter.

*Note I had purchased it at "Que de Bonnes Chooses" in Hudson a while back. I am sure if you call them, they would be happy to fill your curb side order. This is also a time to support all our local merchants.
