Leather conditioners

This is all I’d really need for leather care…well, other than the brushes, applicators, etc.

Sending these off to a friend.

Queensland beeswax, Victorian farmed emu fat and my home-made leather balm.

Now I need to try and integrate some pigments/dyes into the emu cream/leather balm, to create a polish cream for shoes.

More research and experimentation required…

    1. I have a couple of different formulae for different applications, but the one shown in the post is a general purpose conditioner.
      Yep, similar use to mink oil, but because of the wax content it provides additional protection against the elements (though most commercial mink oils do contain wax.)

  1. Your leather balm looks like great. I use olive oil and beeswax to create my homemade balm.
    My comercial balm is mink oil.
    May you show us some ideas to test a new home made conditioner? I will test it and show you my results.
    You have an amazing blog.
