Finishing reclaimed oak floors need guidance.

I live in a restored 160 year old farm house in north east TN. The oak floors are not original but did come from a very old building that was torn down. If I had to guess its age I would say between 75 and over 100 years From what I can tell they have always been waxed. Two years ago I stripped all the wax off and applied a penetrating conditioner with wax in it. I always had a sort of a smudged wax look in some areas. Currently they are very dry looking and I would like to refinish them. I love the oiled hand rubbed look. The moistured rich look. I can not let it cure the time it needs for most oil finishes. What are my best options to achieve the look I want.
