Pure tung oil is the ideal oil with which to treat your new hive (and more)! Thought to originate in China as early as 400 B.C., tung oil is made by pressing the seeds of the Tung Tree. It is a natural oil that will prolong the life of your hive, without any additives or chemicals. Tung oil also preserves your hive's beautiful cedar coloration!
Don't settle for other tung oils with chemical additives -- our tung oil is 100% pure. One bottle is sufficient for at least one coat of tung oil on any of our three hives. Not a beekeeper? Tung oil isn't just for hives! Since it's chemical and additive free, it can be used to treat cutting boards, homemade furniture, birdhouses and more. It's no wonder our specially formulated tung oil is one of our most beloved products.
Available in 8, 16, and 32 ounce bottles.

Great product. Makes the hives look attractive -- blend in as lawn furniture. But it does takes several days to dry completely.
I used tung oil on all my boxes that I bought this year. I purchased cedar and pine, both should last a long time and I didn't have to worry about using paint that may have lead and other chemicals.
I really like using this on my cedar hives.
Does a beautiful job on my red cedar Warren hive. Brings out the natural beauty of the wood.
Wonderful, natural way to preserve hive supers.
