    oiling board with wanlut oil, do i need to worry about patron allergies?

    I've been oiling my Boardsmith board with edible walnut oil I bought from Krogers. I wonder if I have to worry about customer's allergies?

    I would worry about it, you know how people are now days. Also, what about it going rancid?

    if every single person on earth who oils a cutting board switched, i doubt it would make the tiniest iota of a difference.

    That site recommends the finish I've been using (and which I learned of from David the Boardsmith): a mixture of mineral oil and beeswax.
