Yes, plain mineral ol works just fine. But as ChefHDAN mentioned, the small amount of added wax makes a big difference in the appearance of the board and how long you can use it between renewing the finish. If you haven’t tried a finish like Howard’s you really should. When the final coat has soaked in as much as it is going to you can buff the surface with a soft rag to give a beautiful look and silky to the touch surface. Not oily at all. I started using just mineral oil and I really prefer the finishes with a bit of wax in them. The end result is much nicer looking for presentation as a gift. I can well imagine it would help sell boards if that is your goal.
