C.R.A.F.T.! Wood BeesWax Product?

About three months ago, I read about a beeswax product which was considered the creme' de la creme' for restoring antique wood. My brain has clearly gone South on me (CRAFT), but I spent hours researching it online at the time. I want to say it's Phillips Orange BeesWax?!? Anyone have a clue? Or an idea who might carry it or know what I am looking for. LOL.

I'm not looking to refinish these pieces... just moisturize, rejuvenate and seal the wood.

Thanks,

Beeswax is the softest of waxes readily available on the market. It's usually combined (in various percentages) with carnuba wax (a very hard wax) for various polishing compounds.

Beeswax will NOT seal the wood - moisture penetration will still be a real possibility.

For wax finishes on pieces I restore I use one of the many varieties of Briwax. You can find more information on this product line at:

www.briwaxwoodcare.com

PS - nothing you can add will 'moisturize' the wood, but a good application of wax will restore the lustre.
