How is it applied or is it mixed in with the final coat. [snip] Mix one part bee's wax with two parts linseed oil (you will have to heat it to melt the wax) & apply with a clean rag. This is a floor wax to be applied after you have applied all of your coats of linseed oil. This will cause water or other spills to bead up and keep them from soaking into the floor. It will need to be reapplied periodically just like any other floor wax. It also helps to heat your linseed oil when doing the linseed oil coats, since it will help the floor to absorb it faster. NOTE: Linseed oil and bee's wax are both highly flamable, be careful when heating them. Shannon Dealy dealy at deatech.com
