The best thing would be neatsfoot oil, that is what you use on good work boots, saddles, reins, etc, being a oil it will darken leather.

Makes the leather soft as babies bottoms.

Thank you both, had wondered about neatsfoot oil and linseed but didn't know if the vapors might vent into the exhaust/smoke and affect the bees. Bsweet
