    I find a 4 to 1 ratio by weight of oil to wax is best.

    Also wash the board with cold water and no detergents. If cutting meat, fish, bloody products, wash with warm water and lightly scrub surface with a sink brush. You will eventually wash off the protective surface oil but its designed to be washed off. Like ablative bottom paint on a boat. Also, for best absorption, apply oil when the board is dry not after use.
    One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.

    I made the oil with 4 to 1 ratio and used on my board and wooden utensils and I like it a lot. Thank you all

    I´ve mixed 100 gram of bees wax with 1 litre of mineral oil, works as good on knife handles, cutting boards and tired feets
