Make your own cutting board conditioner with this quick two ingredient recipe. You'll be surprised at how revived your wooden cutting board looks after you've used it!
1TblBeeswax Pellets (or grated beeswax)
4TblFood Grade Mineral Oil
Combine the beeswax and the food grade mineral oil in a small glass jar (I used a pint canning jar). Place the jar in a saucepan filled with a couple inches of water.
Place the saucepan with the jar on the stove and slowly heat until the beeswax has melted and the contents of the jar are completely liquid.
Pour your melted mixture into a small jar to cool. Once it has cooled it will have a gel-like consistency.
To Use: Dip the corner of a rag into your mixture and then spread it onto your cutting board, rubbing it in gently. Continue until you have conditioned your entire cutting board
Note - It is recommended to NEVER use vegetable oils like olive oil, corn oil, or sunflower oil for a homemade solution for cutting boards. These types of oils can go rancid, which in turn could give your cutting board a bad smell or transfer a bad taste to your foods.
