Oiling wood tables and counters

I oiled our old wooden table and kitchen island recently. It had many months.

With a new baby and toddler in the house who often eats off these surfaces, I used edible organic Jojoboa oil.

I'm sure there's many other non-toxic oils that would work, such as Canola (used on metal farm tools I've heard).

Do you readers have any other suggestions for the comments below?

I put the oil on heavy, and then let is soak in for a about two hours before I wiped off the excess.

The silver lining I realized later, was that left over food bits are so much easier to wipe off! Duh, I know, but it had been a long time since I really did this in earnest with enough oil.
