I love this conditioner for my wooden cutting boards – three simple ingredients and easy to make. Even though the rosemary essential oil is antibacterial, I never use my wooden boards for meats. I also don’t use wooden cutting boards that I’ve treated with this conditioner for anything I plan to ferment, like cabbage for sauerkraut. Rosemary Essential Oil is antibacterial and can impede the fermentation process by killing the good bacteria.
