Butter Them Up

Today I have a great do it yourself conditioner for your wooden tools in your kitchen

I came across this recipe from the Prairie Homestead,
 and thought I'd give it a try.

I chopped up some beeswax and spooned out the coconut oil,
then waited for it to melt.  
I poured it into a mason jar...for I kinda have a few of them. 

Once the mixture had cooled some I slathered some on my wooden spoons, and a couple cutting boards that were in need of some attention.  
Well.....I think they all are, but I'm doing an experiment.  
I'm going to see if the coconut scent comes off on the veggies and such.  If it does, I'll be making this recipe with refined coconut oil instead and using the other for salve or something. 

They have turned out to be a deep honey colour, and I'm so pleased with how they turned out.

Something new for my kitchen...though you might enjoy knowing about it if you didn't already. 

Hope you have a wonderful day!

Thank you for sharing, I have been using a shop bought Danish oil but it would be nice to make something up myself and certainly more cost effective.

Okay so call me stupid but I guess I didn't ever think about conditioning my wooden tools! It makes total sense though. I use a lot of wooden spoons but have gone to using those cheapo plastic cutting mats. It will be interesting to see how your recipe works. Let us know!
