  1. Measure out 1 part beeswax to 3 parts coconut oil into heat-safe container, such as a canning jar.

  2. Using double boiler, lower heat-safe jar into water, being careful not to allow water into your jar. Then on medium heat, allow water to simmer and heat jar with coconut oil and beeswax until melted.

  3. Carefully remove from double boiler and stir to fully incorporate ingredients.

  4. When slightly cooled, lightly coat wooden cutting board or utensil surface with wood conditioner and leave overnight.

  5. Buff with cloth the next day to remove any extra conditioner.
