How to Save Leather Cowboy Boots from Oil

A few months back we did a wedding I coordinated that was a  bit chilly and a bit rustic. AKA I was rocking’ Chanda’s comfy cowboy boots with a dress and busily working around the venue in style. All was well until I carried some delicious cheesy garlic dip to the bride and managed to drip some of the oil on Chanda’s boots- gasp!! Not the boot!!! Isn’t it the worst when you are borrowing clothes and manage to somehow make a boo boo?? Chanda being the dear she is brushed it off and simply suggested we oil her boots. I was up for the find n fix it!!

You can get the recipe steps for our homemade conditioner HERE but it’s 1 part natural beeswax to 4 parts of sunflower oil (or any other neutral vegetable oil).
