Here is what you will need:

  • ½ cup of olive oil
  • 5-7 drops of citrus essential oils (I use THESE)
  • 1 teaspoon of grated orange peel
  • 2 tablespoons of white vinegar
  • Mixing bowl
  • Soft clean cloth


1. Begin by mixing all of your ingredients into a bowl. There will be separating and settling of contents. This is normal.

2. Allow the mixture to sit for a few hours. If you wish, you can then strain it so the orange peels are removed. Or, you can leave them in the mixture so they continue to add oils to the product.

3. Store the mixture in an air tight jar until you are ready to use it. To use your orange shine furniture polish, apply some to a soft cloth or rag. Gently wipe it into the furniture in a circular motion. There is no need to rinse the area or do a final wipe. As long as you apply a small amount at a time and massage it in gently, you should be fine.
