I don t think you ll be happy with mineral spirits, it looks good going on but a week later it ll look like you didn t do anything. I would suggest wax. Paraffin is probably the most neutral but you ll have to melt it, possibly thin it. Beeswax might work for you.

I’m with you, but the OP was so specific about “plain oil,” that I skipped suggesting anything else.

Honestly, if you want a beautiful finish, go with Tried & True Original Wood Finish. It’s polymerized linseed oil and beeswax. The results are amazing.
