Howard Butcher Block Conditioner says it is made of food grade mineral oil stabilized with vitamin E, beeswax, and canauba wax. Last night and by accident, I wiped a piece of teak with it and then, after I discovered what was on the rag, wiped the entire piece with more of the Howard’s. The results look great and feel great this morning! You just want to touch and rub your hands over the wood. Now my question is this: If I wanted to make my own version, say to use on teak in a boat cabin for instance, what proportions would I use and is mineral oil the right oil to be using? Would I just use an old pot on the stove?
