Vintage Martin

What solution is safe to beautify but not harm the tone of a vintage Martin acoustic guitar?

I have a 1954 O-15 in solid mahogany. I have been recommended everything from mineral oil to carnuba wax, and everybody warns about one and permits another, but nobody seems to agree what is safe, and what will not impede the instrument from resonating, nor dampen it. I want it to look as lustrous as possible without leaving a film, coating, or residue that will harm the wood or ruin its beautiful sound.
