I use mineral oil for anything that contacts food. Totally an “in-the-wood” finish. Non-drying oil that will not go rancid over time. It offers little protection, but it is easily renewable. A quick wipe with fresh oil and you’re back in business.

I also use a blend of 1/4 Cup beeswax and 1 Cup mineral oil on cutting boards. Heat the mineral oil to 140 stir in bees wax and pour into a jar. wipe on, buff off. A little more protection than plain mineral oil. When water quits beading, wipe on a new coat.
