Mixture of food grade white mineral oil and beeswax
Thinner product than the cream - more easily absorbed and penetrates more deeply into the grain of the wood to help protect & revitalize
Same high quality oil that is used at the factory
Keeps your blocks looking like new
When using the oil, it is recommended you apply a generous amount and let it sit overnight - after checking the result the following morning, add more oil if there are dry spots or for any other necessary reason
**Note: Can use Board Cream or Mystery Oil separately but it is recommended to be used together for extra protection
The Boos Block Mystery Oil acts as the shampoo. The oil and minerals penetrates through the wood surface to increase its longevity. The Boos Block Board Cream acts as the conditioner. It is used after the Mystery Oil to seal the top coating of the wood surface to provide a thick surface protection.
John Boos Mystery Oil is designed to improve the longevity of your Cutting Board, Butchers Block, or other Wood Work Surface. Your Wood Product requires a specific internal moisture- too low and the wood will crack while too much moisture will allow your item to warp and if untreated, warp unevenly. To prevent moisture from entering or leaving the core of your wood product, the item leaves the production line with its natural pores filled and sealed with food-grade Oil and Wax. These pores will open up with surface damage and shock, and John Boos Mystery Oil will re-fill and re-seal these pores to keep the internal moisture at the appropriate level. John Boos Mystery Oil is a special blend of White Mineral Oil and Bees Wax, designed specifically to rejuvenate your board and keep it healthy to the core for added years of use.
John Boos Mystery Oil pairs well with John Boos Board Cream. The Mystery Oil is low viscosity for reaching the core of your wood block, while the thick cream rejuvenates the surface.

Great product once it arrived by: Tom from: Los Angeles, CA on: August 10, 2015
The oil is great. Love that the ingredients are all healthy, not putting something toxic or questionable on our butcher block.
The only issue we had is that the item got lost. It should have arrived with the butcher block top but it didn't. The shipping company may have lost it. It had to be re-shipped so we ended up not being able to use our butcher block top for a couple of weeks til the oil came. But it is here now, we like it, it is very easy to use, so we are delighted overall. Thanks.
