Q: My wife bought a wood spoon which was treated with a blend of mineral oil and beeswax. Is that a kashrus issue?
A: Wood spoon oil made of just mineral oil and beeswax is kosher without certification, and therefore the spoon which your wife bought may be used. If the spoon had been treated with some other oil (e.g. coconut, hemp) we would have to know the source of that oil before deciding on the status of the spoon.
