I used a mixture of olive oil, beeswax, and cocoa butter, because I don't keep walnut oil on hand and since I tend to cook for people with nut allergies, I'd rather play it safe. Googling indicated that beeswax and cocoa butter are suitable for wood, and this was a mixture I had already made for skin care so it gets double duty! I heated it before using so that it was applied as a liquid. Also it smells so good because it has rose oil in it. 🌹

Note: Approved with a caution - It's possible that the beeswax will melt into hot soups and the olive oil and cocoa butter may go rancid over time. Be aware if they get sticky or smelly.

I’ve never oiled kitchen woods before! I didn’t even know this was something people did. They look awesome though! I used coconut oil because I didn’t have walnut. The skinnier wooden spoon one was my grandmas and has cooked 90% of my food since my teenage years.

Oiling wood. I received the rectangular spoons for Christmas and just used one to dish out coconut oil saw the little bits clinging to it and thought why wash them off when I can use them to oil the wood. Got the set together with the cutting board and one other spoon to make 6.
