CedarCraft Protective Wood Oil

CedarCraft Protective Wood Oil

Part of the allure of gardening with CedarCraft products is the ability to do so in a beautiful and environmentally sustainable way.

Our cedar planters are beautiful on their own, but gardening is all about personalizing your own natural oasis. Garden design is based on personal aesthetic preferences for every individual gardener – from flowers, vegetables, to the style of the planters they reside in. We’ve introduced CedarCraft Protective Wood Oil Stains this summer to help give our gardeners the ability to add their own flair to their planters!

CedarCraft Protective Wood Oil Stains are a semi-transparent stain designed to tread lightly on the earth using all natural oils, resins, and new age vegetable based solvents. We have been able to cease using petroleum-based products, effectively reducing the volatile organic compounds to less than 1 gram per liter.

Our Protective Wood Oil is non-toxic and safe for use around children and animals. They are odorless, contain no chemicals known to cause cancer or birth defects and no substances that are listed in the superfund amendments and reauthorization act, the comprehensive environmental response act, or the toxic substances control act. They are truly 100% sustainable!

CedarCraft planters are constructed with untreated redwood cedar and designed to withstand the elements for six to ten years, even without our protective wood oil stains. Without staining you may see the natural color of your planter gracefully fade with age through the gardening seasons.

CedarCraft Protective Wood Oil provides a 99% UV rating that will protect and beautify your wood for many years to come, giving your planters a vibrant, long-lasting burst of color.


Our oil stains are available in four colors:



This stain gives your planter a warm honey hue, slightly saturating the natural color of your cedar wood.




This is slightly warmer and darker than our Natural Stain, giving your planter an almost mountain rustic look.




This oil stain gives a slightly deeper, warmer, richer, red-toned hue compared to our Ash color.




This black stain gives your planter a contemporary, urban-style look while still highlighting the natural grain in each wood plank.



Application is a piece of cake! Make sure you thoroughly shake and stir your can so that it’s properly mixed. With a clean, dry rag or brush, coat your planter and wipe off any excess oil. Application takes mere minutes, just as long as it took to assemble your CedarCraft planter. 

Clean up is as simple as soap and water! 


Using our CedarCraft Protective Wood Oil will help to add a little more personality and long-lasting protection to your planters for years to come.
