Topic tags/keywords: question

I am making some trivits for gifts. I am trying to decide on what finiish to use. I don’t want something that will end up softening and sticking to the pot or hot dish or leaving some residual on the surface. I was thinking about tung oil. Do you agree or have any other suggestions? I know the simplest is to leave it unfinished. But that is the problem, in my eyes it is unfinished.

Pure tung oil would probably work. I would think tung oil varnish would blister/peel.
If it were me and pure tung oil did not work I would go with mineral oil.
Good luck
