It depends exactly which oil was recommended, many edible oils are "drying" oils and would actually impart a rather nice gloss to a wooden bowl rather than going rancid. I do remember seeing (possibly Cary Grant) doing this in a film and thinking that the garlic should be in the dressing rather than the bowl.
You lot are often very wrong in cooking, this only confirms it.
