I saw a Facebook ad for Odie's Oil: "NON-TOXIC, FOOD SAFE, ONE COAT, NATURALLY EFFECTIVE WOOD FINISH AND STABILIZER!" Multimedia File Viewing and Clickable Links are available for Registered Members only!!  You need to Login or Register

Does anyone here have any experience with it?

It's yet another., oil and wax blend.
I've never used it, so I can't say how it performs. The ingredients that they list are as follows.
Mixture of: Lubricating oil; Drying oil; Natural waxes; Essential oil

A guy in our club is using it and likes it a lot.   Ease of application is one of the main advantages.    It is a satin finish.
  He also has starting to use the wood butter and likes the feel it produces. 
I have not used Odies but I have used Osmo Polyx which is also a hardwax oil.  I also like it and the ease of use and the ease of repair  compared to lacquer and polyurethane varnish is notable.  I can get a gloss finish with Osmo plus Beall buffing

The main disadvantage to wax/oil mixtures is the durability.

We know that wax is a soft coating that will rather quickly wear with handling.  Will the sheen go with the wax?

Would someone contact the company and report back how the company says the product is "effective" and how it stabilizes the wood?

I am not an expert and I have only tried it a few times, and for decorative and not utility items.   But I see these used for floors, so the durability would  seem to be adequate.  Plus they are known as "hardwax oils" so maybe  they are not as soft as you would expect.   There are several YouTube videos comparing them and testing them, the ones I have seen focused mostly on  resistance to liquids but not wear resistance.    For example Odies did quite well in resistance to staining the wood by red wine.
