cutting board and wood spoons and stuff.  Can I use olive oil, or will that go rancid sitting on the wood utensils because it's not air tight?  

So many things to learn about this cooking stuff.  Wow.

I think olive (or any vegetable) oil will go rancid in the open air.

According to this site, a good board doesn't soak up enough oil to matter if it is rancid, the point is to keep the board from soaking up water to provide a medium for bacteria.

I believe linseed oil can be used. I'll ask BD what she uses. I just wash and dry mine.  :B

What is the name of the product you are using in this video? I have wooden countertops and I'd love to treat them with something like this.

Do you do the lemon 1st then the beeswax or are they done at separate times?

GR,
From the picture and description in the video, and looking around for a similar product, I found this product:
Natural Beeswax & Mineral Oil Wood Preserver Tin, 7 oz.

I'm not answering for Wholefoodie - I hope she confirms or indicates what product she is using...
