My sister made me a jar of this last year and I finally used it on all of my wooden spoons. The bamboo spoons especially needed it and it definitely made them look less dry.

The post with the recipe said that any extra could be rubbed left on your fingers could just be massaged into your skin like lotion. I rubbed some into a part of my right hand, and I ALWAYS have horribly dry hands during the winter, and I have to say that part of my hand felt awesome for about 2 days. And I'm excited to give my wooden salad bowl and spoons and cutting boards a treatment. I think the 1/3 of the recipe I took home will be more than enough to do all of that and then some.

Thanks for the invitation, ladies. I'm excited to try out the mustard as well. It's so very hard to be patient and just let it "cook".

Thanks for this great tip, my spoons are definitely ready for this treatment. I do a ton of home canning and was a bit nervous when I saw your jars in the pot of water. You ought to have something under them like a dish cloth or rack so they are not touching the bottom of the pan as they could explode.

Hello Ladies!
Silly question...as long as the beeswax is 100% natural, it's "food-grade" right? I love the idea of this project, especially since all of my wooden kitchen things are in a sorry state :(

Kimberly, Im not entirely sure. I would think that kind of beeswax would be considered food grade. I think the reason this determination is made in the recipe is because they dont want you use beeswax that is for use in making candles. With my experience in using that type of beeswax, the material is white, almost clear, and creates different results than when I melted this foodgrade beeswax. I hope this helps! Kathy

Great information and perfect details!

I have been using mineral oil and beeswax mixtures for reviving, conditioning and protecting wood spoons and cutting boards for years.
