Chelsea Classic Spike Oil

This safer historic alternative to turpentine and mineral spirits has a distinctive lavender, herbaceous scent. Use it to thin oil painting mediums, resins, and varnishes. It's not overly abrasive or streaky, and it evaporates at a similar rate as turpentine. This natural solvent has been used since the Renaissance, and is non-carcinogenic

Chelsea Classical Studio Lavender Spike Oil Essence is made using only the best natural materials. This high-quality natural solvent has historically been used as a paint thinner and to make mediums and varnishes. Spike Oil comes in glass bottles. It can also be used to blend coloured pencils.

Though Spike Oil is non-carcinogenic, it has a strong herbaceous scent. Use in a well-ventilated area and may not be suitable for people who are sensitive to strong scents.
