Food Safe Beeswax Wood Finish
If you want a food safe alternative to our beeswax wood finish, then try our Ye Olde Beeswax Cutting Board & Wood Spoon Finish. It will moisturize and protect your wood creations that make contact with your food, such as wooden bowls, wooden spoons, wooden knife handles, and wooden cutting boards.
Directions for Applying Wax for Cutting Boards
Make sure that the wood surface has been adequately hand planed or sanded to your desired smoothness, and wiped clean. Use a soft cotton cloth or old T-shirt to apply a small amount of Ye Olde Beeswax Cutting Board & Wood Spoon Finish to the bare wood. You can either leave it, or buff it after 5-10 minutes with a used cotton T-shirt if you desire a sheen. On some open-grain or dry woods you may wish to initially apply a second coat.
This finish uses a perfect blend of natural beeswax and food-safe mineral oil. Like with any oil-based wood finish, remember to properly store or dispose of your rags after use, to prevent the danger of spontaneous combustion associated with oily rags (follow these safety tips). Reapply more beeswax finish when the sheen dulls in appearance and needs a new polished look.
Reapply after washing & drying your cutting board, wooden spoon, or wooden bowl. Or whenever the wood feels too dry. Enjoy!
