Notes

You can use these tags https://saltinmycoffee.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/Spoon-Butter-Gift-Tags.pdf
Grapeseed oil, coconut oil, walnut oil, or flaxseed oil can be used as alternatives to the mineral oil.
To use, scoop out just a bit with your fingers or use a rag or paper towel and rub it over your spoon or cutting board. Massage it into the wood. Let it sit at least an hour but preferably overnight. Then use a lint-free rag to wipe any excess off and give it a good buffing.
This should be repeated as needed depending on how much you use your spoon, but once a month is a good schedule.
