    • Protects Cutting Boards, Butcher Blocks & More
    • 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.

Product Reviews:
Works Great!
by: Harry   Verified Buyer      from: Lockport, Il      on: June 7, 2021
 We received the oil in the time frame that we were told we would. I put the oil on the new cutting board, and it looks great!

by: Rebecca Hoeppner   Verified Buyer      from: Ames, IA      on: April 21, 2021
 The oil makes my cutting board look great... but 3 bottles was a lot to have to buy.

Easy to apply!
by: Joann Eng-Hellinger   Verified Buyer      from: Saint Louis, MO      on: March 23, 2021
 The special oil does a magnificent job and applies easily. I would recommend that a kit of the oil and your cream be offered for purchase. Three containers of the oil is too much.

Easy to apply
by: Roger   Verified Buyer      from: ROBINS, Ia      on: December 23, 2020
 An easy way to keep ones cutting board in good shape.

Good product for ongoing care
by: Brian Henderson   Verified Buyer      from: Philadelphia, PA      on: June 22, 2020
 compliments the cream product well. Keeps the cutting board from drying out and helps with recovery from dryness. Used regularly with an overnight application it keeps the board in good shape.

Soaks right up
by: Linda P Rickson   Verified Buyer      from: Paradise, Ca      on: February 21, 2018
 So far so good! the oil soaks right in, and by morning the finish is like new.

What our tops needed.
by: Leonardo Savona   Verified Buyer      from: Westwood, MA      on: December 1, 2017
 Another quality product that helped restore the luster our tops were missing. Over time we take for granted and don't notice the toll of everyday use if we put the new top next to the current condition it would be as noticeable as night and day. Thanks also for helping us out with the information we received when we called in... Keep up the good hard work, it really shows in your service and what you produce. Happy and Prosperous New Year.

 My husband really likes the oil. Much better than varnish.

Great product
by: Lanette Adams   Verified Buyer      from: Kennewick, WA      on: January 4, 2016

Great product once it arrived
by: Tom   Verified Buyer      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.
