Any particular thoughts? It looks like raw linseed oil mixed with beeswax is the best idea, but how does western red cedar hold up in Montana unfinished?

I think that is the best for all hives as it perfectly natural .
Other plastic type paints might not be so kind to the bees or pollute your honey . Who would want such material in your honey ?
