I've been reading around the forum trying to find an alternative to mineral oil for cutting boards. I've seen many people say that triglycerides should not be used, for a variety of reasons, and beeswax has its obvious limitations. I realized that I happened to know of a vegetable wax that is liquid at room temperature, is non-toxic, can be safely ingested, and practically does not rancidify. Although it is almost always sold as "jojoba oil", it is actually a wax. I've never seen it mentioned it being used for cutting boards, so I was wondering if anyone here has heard about it. It is used to seal wood by professional woodworkers, and I'm reading that it dries and absorbs quickly. Has anyone here tried it on their cutting boards? The downside is that this wax is more expensive than the other options. In small quantities, the cheapest reputable brand I've seen is Aura Cacia. I saw one vendor inexplicably selling that brand for about $1/oz, but everyone else was selling it for twice that. I know it can definitely be found for below $1/oz when buying by the gallon, but that is still more expensive than the other options.
