Caring for an Old Spinning Wheel

I need to find how to care for an old raw wood spinning wheel. I belonged to my grandmother. It is almost 100 years old. The wood seems so dry or thirsty. I don't want to seal it but wondered about an oil for the wood.

Is there a museum or antique shop that you can call? you really don't want to do the wrong thing and ruin the value.

Scott's Liquid Gold would be a great product to generously apply, till it looks like you'd want it to. What a find, you have there, you should be proud!
