Making Wood Conditioner to care for all your wood kitchen items
For those of us that love using wood in the kitchen, wood cutting boards, spoons, spatulas, rolling pins and all those other utensils taking care of them can be challenging. The best solution is to use mineral oil and beeswax mixture for reviving, conditioning and protecting your wood items. It will keep wood items from drying out and make them look great again. My Wood Conditioner is very popular for use on wooden spoons, sometimes called wooden spoon wax.
With a purchase of wood kitchen wares from my shop I include a 2 ounce tin of Wood Conditioner. It has been a huge hit and many write to me requesting more.
I began making my wood conditioner years ago, sometimes called wood butter or spoon butter, or Bees oil for all my cutting boards that I make in the shop. I would make a good amount in a large jar and use it as I needed it. When someone purchased one of my cutting boards, they would always ask me how should I care for my cutting board. This year I began making up tins of my beeswax finish to sell and give away when someone buys a board.
It is wonderful for all your wood when they start looking dry. My Wood Conditioner penetrates wooden bowls, wooden utensils, cutting boards, rolling bins and more. Prevents drying and cracking, removes knife marks adding a soft lustrous finish.
I purchase the beeswax from a local source and the food grade mineral oil from the local pharmacy.
After melting the wax and adding the oil I add the Wood Conditioner to the tins. You can see the first tins I did are starting to get firm. When it is firm and cooled I put the lids on then add a label to the top and a label with directions to the bottom.
I include a tin of my Wood Conditioner with each cutting board that I ship. The Wood Conditioner is a nice gift or surprise to someone’s package. Then I know their wood will look great for many years.
My wood conditioner will keep your boards looking great.

Directions for using Wood Conditioner:
All you need to do is apply sparingly in a circular motion using a dry soft cloth or paper towel. A little goes a long way. Let sit for an hour or so and buff using a clean soft cloth. The mineral oil soaks into the wood to condition it while the beeswax seals the oil into the wood and helps to keep the moisture out.
