How would other than food grade mineral oil go rancid. It has no more in common with plant based oils than a piece of petrified wood has with a living tree?

[T]hat product is Mineral oil, Beeswax, and Carnauba wax, all 3 easily gotten. Make sure to get food grade mineral oil, or it can go rancid.

Mix MO at 75% and the waxes at 10 to 12%, and go. Heat all of it in a double boiler to melt the wax fully, allow it to cool, and follow the Howards directions. If you want you can buy wood with money you save, or heck you can send it to me. :-)

Hazards shown appear to be mostly aquatic.
