Posted by Megan Walker on

If you're like me, you probably use your cutting board for a lot of different tasks - slicing meat, chopping vegetables, etc. And if you're like me, you also probably want to make sure that your cutting board stays in good condition for as long as possible.

One way to help keep your cutting board looking and performing its best is by using cutting board oil. But what is cutting board oil, and why should you use it? Keep reading to find out!

When it comes to treating my boards, I trust and love one brand in particular - Clark's

CLARK'S Cutting Board Oil
 is a delightfully scented formula that’s easy to apply and works beautifully to restore and revive your wood surfaces. Whether it's Granddad's butcher block, the cutting board you received as a wedding present, a wooden salad bowl you picked up at the market, or an end-grain countertop at your very own restaurant, you take pride in making sure they are all well maintained. A few moments of work will bring a lifetime of joy with your wood treasures!

Kitchen surfaces and tools take a beating. Between sharp knives, water, soap, and temperature fluctuation, wood begins to dull, warp, and show wear. This is when a good conditioning oil is needed. Wood naturally wants to absorb everything it can. That’s how trees breathe. Your cutting board or butcher block is also soaking up everything it touches (good and bad), that's why you need cutting board oil with anti-microbial properties to penetrate deep into the wood to block bad bacteria from entering the wood fibers. CLARK'S is obsessed with healthy eating which is why our oil exceeds the FDA regulation on food safety and will never go rancid or harbor germs like plant-based oils.



  • Penetrates Deep into the Wood
    Apply a generous amount of oil evenly to the wood surface and allow it to penetrate for 1-2 hours. Make sure you oil all sides. Oil works its way deep into the grain of your wood surfaces.
  • Perfectly Scented with Essential Oils
    Perfectly blended with organic natural lemon and orange oils.
  • Prevents Drying and Cracking
    Oiling cutting boards or butcher blocks every 3-4 weeks helps prevent wood from drying, splitting or cracking.
  • Food Safe and Antimicrobial
    CLARK'S Oil will never go rancid or harbor germs like plant-based oils. Safest butcher block oil on the market with ingredients that exceed thee United States FDA regulations on safety for direct and indirect contact with food.

  • What wood should not be used for cutting boards?
    Answer: Open pored wood not to use for cutting boards like ash or red oak because these woods are difficult to clean from food stains.
