Why not just use mineral oil? You can get it at any drug store in the laxative section. Some like to gently heat it with some beeswax. It will cool to the consistency of petroleum jelly. I'm not completely sure, but I think that most commercially available butcher block oil is just mineral oil. At several times the price.

Mineral oil is the finish of choice for cutting boards.
