If your cutting board looks dry like my board, it may have been washed with dish soap and you can see that it really dried out the wood after happening only once. It's important to re-condition the wood in order to put moisture back into the wood.
I use a mineral oil and beeswax combination, like OZ oil from Ozark West. If you only have mineral oil, that works just fine. The lower left image shows that I worked in the conditioning cream and allow it to soak into the wood.
After letting the oils soak into the board, I wipe off the excess cream. The lower right image is the completed conditioned cutting board. I condition our board at least once a month or when it looks dry.
