Jesse Grease

Jesse Grease

Jesse grease is used to keep everything leather soft and subtle. I’ve even put it on my braided leashes and flying jesses to keep them a bit more waterproof. You can, of course buy jesse grease online, but for the same amount of money, you can make enough to last you several years.

1 ounce of beeswax
1 1/2 ounce of paraffin wax
10 ounces of mineral oil

The wax can be found in many craft stores.

Cut the beeswax and paraffin wax into smaller pieces and put into a GLASS jar. Melt the wax in the microwave, giving it a stir every now and again. Never use anything else but glass. The wax gets so hot, it will melt just about anything else. Use a jar with a large lid and you can store the jesse grease in this.

To use this grease, simply dip your fingers into it and smear on the leather. You don’t have to heat it back up to use. Rub into the leather well and use a paper towel to wipe off any excess. Any you have on your hand can be rubbed onto your glove.
