Barrettine Danish Oil is made from a blend of rich oils, including Tung Oil. Suitable for a wide range of applications including wooden doors, panelling, furniture, wooden decorations and wood turning projects.

New or Bare Timber

  1. Bare wood must be clean, smooth, dry and free from wax, dust and other surface contaminants
  2. Bare wood may be stained or dyed with either a water based or solvent based wood stain or dye before finishing with danish oil
  3. Do not apply a knotting agent or sanding sealer

Previously Coated Timber

  1. Ensure that all previous paints and varnishes are removed with a suitable paint and varnish remover
  2. Previously waxed surfaces should by thoroughly scrubbed with white spirit
  3. Wipe away the dissolved wax or polish with a clean rag
  4. Wipe surface with water to test that all of the wax has been removed
  5. Repeat the process if the water continues to bead on the surface of the wood

Always do a small test area to confirm performance and compatibility before starting any project and follow the manufacturer's instructions on the container at all times. Stir / shake well before use.

Barrettine Danish Oil should be applied at a room temperature of between 15℃ - 25℃, do not apply below 5℃

  1. Apply the Danish Oil liberally with a clean lint-free cloth or brush, and wipe off any surplus oil after a few minutes
  2. For a superior smooth danish oil finish, the final coat may be applied using a plastic scouring pad, rubbing in the direction of the grain and wiping away any surplus with a soft, lint-free cloth or paper towel
  3. For a smooth, silky finish, lightly sand the danish oil between coats with very fine sandpaper or wire wool
  4. Re-coat once the previous coat is dry, approximately 6 hours in normal drying conditions
  5. New or bare wood should be oiled 3 times initially
  6. Exterior wood requires a minimum of 3 coats applied liberally and not wiped off
  7. To improve the penetration and durability dilute the first coat 20% with white spirit

Please Note: If applying Danish Oil to veneered doors, it is advisable to check with the door manufacturer before proceeding.

Regular Cleaning

For regular cleaning, use a slightly dampened, lint-free cloth and simply wipe over gently.


Wooden surfaces can be periodically re-oiled if the surface becomes tired looking, dry or scuffed. Wipe surfaces with a lint-free cloth or rag slightly dampened with White Spirit before finishing wood with Barrettine Danish Oil.

Please Note: Oiled surfaces should never be cleaned with household detergents and cleaners as these can degrade or eventually strip the oil from the wood. Always use a specifically formulated wood cleaner.

Great product, water proofed the wood, whilst enhancing the colour of the wood by Martin Wiesner

I wanted this product to apply to some ceder cladding on my house to protect from water and to enhance the colour of the wood. I applied 3 coats after a thorough sanding and the Danish Oil has effectively water proofed the wood and brought out the colour of the ceder to produce a warm redish brown.

This Danish Oil is very good and easy to apply with a brush, giving an appealing finish by Peter Jago

Excellent product for oak gates exposed to the north west Cumbrian coastal wind and rain. I used to use creosote but this Danish Oil is much more appealing with its own distinctive smell. I bought 5 litres as I will also use on garden benches. It was very easy to use after wire brushing the wood first. It soaks into the grain well. Rain beads on the surface. When used with old oak, the wood took on an attractive dark colour.

Excellent oil, works very well by Alex Knott

The oil mix is good, goes on well and very simple to finish. The only minor issue was the can that it comes in isn't very easy to pour from, nothing to stop you using the product though.

Easy to Use, dries to good finish by M Granshaw

Having used high pressure jet to remove lichen and dirt on garden furniture I wanted to maintain the restored golden colour. This product went on easily and seems to have sealed the surface well. 10 - 20 year old furniture looks (almost) like new again. I do this once a year as I do not put it away over winter.

Great product easy to use excellent results by Peter Durnan

Protects the wood and enhances the grain without massively changing the colour, not like most stains. Smell is not unpleasant and it's easy to apply, it was recommended to me, glad it was.
