Common Question

How often do I wax the board?    If you are frequently cleaning and using the your board every day it will need to be treated once a month if not more. The rub will eventually come off in small amounts during cleaning. When you notice reduced luster, it's time to reapply.

HOW TO MAINTAIN YOUR CUTTING BOARD  

Treating your wooden cutting board with our all natural bees wax sealant can protect the cutting surface and keep it looking like new. The oil & wax combination prevents the wood from drying out which can lead to warping and cracking. It also keeps water from settling into the small cuts and crevices on the board. Rest assured that our food-grade bees wax sealant is safe to use on cutting boards.

Things You'll Need

1. Our 100% Natural Food Grade Bees Wax Sealant

2. Lint Free Cloth

3. Clean dish cloth, mild liquid soap & kitchen towel.

Instructions

1. Wash your cutting board with a clean dish cloth and a dab of gentle liquid dish soap. Rinse with warm water and dry thoroughly with a kitchen towel.

2. Use our sealant/paste or purchase a "food grade" or food safe sealant. These sealants are commonly marketed safe to be used on butcher blocks or cutting boards.  

3. Put a small amount of the bees wax sealant onto a clean lint free cloth and rub it in circular motion over the surface of the cutting board. The exact amount of paste will depend on the size of the board, but you want to use enough to coat the entire surface liberally.

4. It's best to let the board sit for one or two hours while the oil & wax combination work its way into the wood. If you have time, let the board sit overnight.

5. If required, wipe the surface of the board with a clean cloth to remove any excess oil.

WHAT IS MINERAL OIL 

It's is a non-drying oil, which means that it will not polymerize (form a plastic-like substance) over time. This is good for oiling cutting boards because it will stay a bit liquid in the wood and flow into cracks and scratches. It is also food-safe and won't go rancid or support microorganisms.

Serenity Stumps Bees Wax Sealant is a mix of Mineral Oil and natural bees wax, which is designed to condition the cutting boards and other wooden kitchen tools. It's easier to apply than either pure mineral oil or pure bees wax.  As the two are blended together it has more a soft paste consistency which can be wiped onto the cutting board with a clean rag.

What would be a bad choice  -most food oils like Canola, Olive Oil, Nut Oils etc. Unsaturated fats will oxidize (go rancid) and affect your food. Even oils high in saturated fats may have too many anti-oxidants (which are bad in this case), which will prevent polymerization and leave a gummy surface.

  Our "All Natural Bees Wax Sealant" is a beautiful lightly  scented  paste  which can be used to bring out the deep, rich  natural colors of the wood grain. Can be used on bare wood,  new and  used  cutting  boards, wooden toys, leather, stone, &  concrete counter tops to either restore moisture or bring out a  beautiful sheen. 

 The beeswax paste provides a layer of protection for most  surfaces, particularly wood.  Nourishing, sealing and helping to  protect material against dryness.  

 When researching wood furniture & cutting board sealants,  I found that many of the conventional furniture polishes at the  local hardware stores were often loaded with poisonous  chemicals that can cause everything from skin irritations to  burns if it comes into contact with your skin and eyes. The  cutting board sealants had chemicals, were too oily, didn't  protect as long and were expensive.

 I researched organic, chemical free bees wax paste that had  been around for centuries. I experimented with combining  different grade levels of bees wax and natural oils. The result  was the creation of the perfect consistency.  It has a very light  bees wax fragrance that protects beautifully and better than    just oil. 

                          

   If properly maintained your board can be past down to generations   depending on how well you care for your board will determine the      amount of years of use you can expect from it. 

   We strongly recommend that you read How to Maintain Your Board    to ensure that your board will provide a lifetime of enjoyment.

  - Liquids can cause swelling, warping or staining when it                     penetrates   a finish; it’s best to clean up spills right away

  - Wood is very sensitive to changes in relative humidity. As the           weather changes, so does the relative humidity in your home and       in the moisture content of the wood in. This means that wood is       constantly expanding and contracting.

  • Wood does best in moderate conditions, without extreme fluctuations in temperature and a relative humidity of about 50-55%.
  • Do not store or hang cutting boards or wood furniture near a heat sources, such as beside a stove top, close to radiators, or fireplaces.
  • Avoid prolonged exposure to direct sunlight. Reduce the amount of sunlight  on any board or wood furniture.
