Low-Odor Alternative for Wood Finishing Projects

Looking to cut down on fumes while working on wood-finishing projects around the house? If so, you may want to learn more about OSMO Transparent Wood Wax Finish.
Available in a variety of colors, and made mostly from organic pigments, vegetable oils and natural waxes, OMSO is a semitransparent wood finish that combines the color properties of stain with the sealing properties of a wax topcoat.

OMSO will not raise the grain of your wood, so there is no need for sanding between coats, and it dries to a smooth water, dirt and moisture-resistant satin finish, which may be buffed to achieve a glossier look.
Manufactured in Great Britain, OMSO products are available in the U.S. through Ecohaus, Phoenix Organics, and other retailers specializing in environmentally-friendly finishes.
