Our Tsubaki Oil is an oil derived from the seeds of the Camellia Japonica plant. Its composition is similar to 'sebum', the natural oil produced by human skin, allowing it the ability to penetrate the deepest layers of the skin. This makes it an ideal choice of oil for conditioning ropes, enabling it to penetrate through to the many fibres of the rope, yet still being kind to the skin. Tsubaki oil is known for its anti-inflammatory and healing properties.
We can supply your rope oil in a variety of sizes. We have a handy pocket size 50ml, perfect for travelling and 100ml and 250ml for those of you who have several ropes to maintain.
Ensure your rope is clean and fuzz free prior to application. If you have just singed your rope, then wipe the soot off your rope using a damp cloth. Apply a small amount of oil to a clean cotton cloth. Place the oiled cloth in the palm of your hand and place one end of the rope on top. Close your hand around the rope and run the rope through the cloth in your hand, oiliing it as it goes. Run all the way to the end, topping up the oil as necessary. Repeat as so desired. Hang your rope for a few hours or ideally overnight to allow the oil to penetrate the rope fibres.
Do not over saturate your rope, it is easy to add more oil in stages, but you can't remove it if you over oil it. If this is new unconditioned rope, then you might need to repeat the process a few times until you reach your desired finish.
Regularly inspect your ropes and oil them as required. Do NOT let your ropes dry out.
Ensure you read the supplied 'Safety of Oils and Balms' information sheet prior to use. Known allergy sufferers should consult a medical practioner prior to use.
