Yes, the walnut oil sold in supermarkets will harden. Just make sure it’s pure, with no additives. Will the supermarket oils work as well as the oil sold as a finish? In some cases, they are exactly the same thing. In some cases, the finishing oils have been heat treated to help them cure more quickly.

As for food alergies, I have three comments: 1st — Given the number of people in the world today, somebody is bound to be allergic to virtually every substance. So, I don’t think you can put any finish (even no finish) that is 100% safe. 2nd — The part of the nut that people are allergic to is the protein, not the oil. By filtering the oil (which is done by the maker of the oil), virtually all if not all the allergy causing protein should be gone. 3rd — Even if some protein is left in the oil, once the oil is hardened, the protein is no longer available to cause a reaction.
