You likely are wondering how often you should apply your butcher block conditioner. How frequently you should apply the conditioner depends on how often you use your countertop and how humid your home is.
On average, you will only need to apply the butcher block conditioner about only once a month. However, depending on the climate in your home, you will likely have to apply every 2-4 weeks.
Another way to tell if you need a conditioner application is when the water begins to soak into the wood, rather than beading up onto the surface as it should.
