The purpose of reoil is protecting the board from water damage.
As long as the wax is on the surface, the area is safe.
Just reoil after using for a while ( how often is depending on usage), that’s enough
to keep the board in good shape.
I’ve done this way past 16 years, it’s been working and I’m sure it’ going to wrok for
a long time.

I use pure tung oil, walnut oil, or mineral oil. I’ve heard that any type of pure oil
would be ok but cooking oils, which get stale and smelly.
