No butcher ever used Howard’s or any product with carnuba wax. Just straight mineral oil soaks into the wood and replaces lost moisture, stopping shrinking, which results in splitting and cracking or separation of the joints. Many of those are yet around a hundred years or so later.

The oil does not evaporate. Rather, it appears to because it wicks to the dry spots. As such, oil applications are penetrating AND cumulative.
