Raised bed wood treatment needed

Hi, I have just built a raised bed vegi garden out of douglas fir 2x10's and need to find a VOC free, natural wood treatment to help prolong its life outdoors and still be safe to harvest the goodies. I would have used cedar or redwood but the cost was 3x!

I lined the inside of the beds with a 6mil black plastic.

I live in AZ..so its very dry. Good and bad, I know.

Any ideas? I have done some searches and not found a lot of into on this topic.
