Is lemon oil good for wood furniture?

Answer

Lemon oil does not harm furniture and it is easier to rub into wood than a paste wax. However, when comparing the two products, lemon oil does have some disadvantages.

Any kind of oil that is applied to furniture attracts dust, which increases the amount of daily or weekly maintenance that is needed. Typically, paste wax does not require upkeep for about three months. Paste wax provides a layer of protection, so minor scratches occur on wax and not the furniture. Oil also builds up over time, while wax does not. As a new coat is applied, the old layer is removed by a solvent in the paste wax.
