I heat the mineral oil and melt beeswax into it. I then apply the hot liquid on a new board. When the mixture cools, it becomes the consistency of Vaseline. I use this soft paste to re-oil boards by just wiping it on, waiting 15 minutes and wiping off the excess. If the board is real dry, the re-application will soak in and you have to oil it again.

In actual use, washing the board off regularly removes the oil and wax on the surface to the point where the board will feel dry to the touch. Wiping this oil/beeswax mixture back on it will make it look and feel new again.
