Wildwood>BLO & wax are not a finish nor provides any protection for your bottle stoppers.
Look up the definition of a finish, for centuries that was all they used in the 1000-1800 +. Wax and BLO which back then was just LO B4 they found drier additives, and named it BLO. They did not start using Shellac until some where in the 1800s. Museum restorations of things made in the Middle Ages was all done originally with wax and LO. Then when with restoration they started to use Shellac to get a longer lasting finish and some of the same look.
