Using Hemp Oil to Enhance Colour

Using Hemp Oil to Enhance Colour

You’ve seen them done a million and one ways on Pinterest - the KEA BEKVÄM spice rack shelves are a great buy, and can be used in any number of situations. Combined with Milk Paint and Hemp Oil, you've got a winning combo.

While most people use them as bookshelves, they’d make great shelves in a craft room! And instead of doing regular wood, or some sort of rainbow, we made an ombre fade using Acadia Pear and custom blends with Raw Silk.

How to apply Hemp Oil 

Once they were done being painted though, I found the colours less intense than I wanted, so using Homestead House’s Hemp Oil I applied a protective coat to enhance the colour, and protect them from the wear and tear that craft supplies will have.

Brush it on

You can apply the oil in a variety of ways, but I find a 2” synthetic brush to be ideal. I grabbed mine at the dollar store, and I won’t lose sleep over losing a fave brush because it is too oil-soaked to use for regular painting.

To enhance colour

As you can see, from the second you apply the oil, it instantly infuses the unfinished colour with richness. THIS is the colour I wanted, so drawing it out using the oil was the right call.

Because any sealing treatment works best when it covers all aspects of a project, don’t forget to get the ends of your piece. I find them to be a bit thirstier than regular wood, so I take extra care to seal them well.

You can wipe away excess oil after an hour, or leave for up to 24hr, any longer than that can cause excess oil to become gummy.

Applying Hemp Oil to reinvigorate colors 

The great thing about the hemp oil is that you can always apply more later on, especially on a high traffic surface like these craft shelves. Just dust them off before re-applying, and boom! Longevity.

    Hi, I’m 57 year old with osteoarthritis in my knees from years of lifting people working on an Ambulance as an EMT. I had to quit my profession as the pain was debilitating and I got a desk job. I don’t have complete bone on bone but the pain is excruciating. I can’t walk the stairs and shopping in the food store has to be quick. I was getting cortisone shots in both knees every 3 months which greatly helped but now after 2 years they don’t work at all. A friend told me about this CBD oil as she plays tennis with ladies in the 70’s and they use it and are pain free..running around the tennis court!!! I tried CBD Hemp oil 100% free of THC. I put 8 drops under my tongue and held it for 30 seconds. It doesn’t taste that pleasant. The bottle I bought is 15ml for $39.95 and its Certified USDA Organic. I bought it in the store but the email: is drodijiesolutiontemple062@gmil.com they sell soaps and candles at the store too. click on the side tab for “Pain Products Line” its a blue bottle with a dropper top. It took 20 mins to start working and I tried the stairs and was a little scared as it hurt so much. I went up and down no problem!!!!! breakthrough!!! no pain!!! I’m going to start taking my walks on the beach again. I’ve been in pain so long I had forgotten what it feels like to be pain free. Let me know how you’re doing when you use the oil

    THANKS

    Awesome blog! I like it a lot! Thanks and keep up the great work!
    I suffer from {ailment} and I tried CBD but didn’t get any results until I switched to Delta-8 hemp oil.
    If you want to try it for free I suggest the brand HiOnNature they offer a free shipped sample no purchase necessary.
    Really it is very essential for the patients.
