A few years ago we bought an olive wood chopping board. It’s an irregular shape with lots of nice wood grain, bit of a keeper. I’ve neglected it lately and it was looking really parched so I made some wood butter to bring it back to life. Most of the recipes I found contain mineral oil (a petroleum by-product) which wasn’t really what I wanted. I bought some Cornish beeswax on our trip to Cornwall at Christmas and used that with coconut oil to make a natural alternative. I’ve been using it on our kitchen utensils and wood furniture and they look great. If you want to make some, here is the recipe.
