As one of the leading suppliers in the UK, this Danish oil is made from only the finest ingredients including Raw Linseed Oil and Tung oil, which is then blended with a small amount of solvent to improve the drying time, performance and overall qualities of the product.

Danish oil is a very versatile product that can be used on any number of wood types, such as oak, pine, mahogany or beech and can be applied to any surface requiring an oil finish including; doors, garden furniture, kitchen worktops, food surfaces, childrens toys and hard or soft wood flooring. For decking it is recommended to use decking oil.

Ensure all surfaces are clean, dry and free from any previous finish. Sand area with 150 grade sandpaper or finer and remove dust prior to applying the Danish Oil.

How to apply Danish Oil

There are many ways to apply danish oil and no skill required. The most popular method is by cloth so that you can key in and wipe off the excess oil at the same time. A good quality paint brush is particularly useful when working with turned and moulded areas or when you need to apply a straight edge as with skirting boards. Danish wood oil is also compatible with virtually any type of spray equipment.

For maximum performance danish wood oil should be initially applied as 3-5 coats to your wooden surface, these will further improve the look and will continue to feed the wood keeping the surface water repellent. The frequency of subsequent coats depends on the density of the timber but as a guideline, further coats of danish oil should be applied about once a year.

For a smooth, silky finish, lightly sand the danish oil between coats with very fine sandpaper or wire wool.

For future cleaning - use a damp cloth, leave for a few minutes and buff to its original shine. Buffing with a cloth or brush as well as vacuuming will remove minor blemishes. Every so often our Surface cleaner is recommended for areas with heavy use. Brushes can be cleaned with white spirit after use.


If any Danish Oil is left over, decant into a smaller container or bottle filling it to the rim and sealing with an air-tight lid. Oil absorbs any oxygen in the tin causing it to become jelly-like over time. If a tin is virtually full it lasts longer than oil in a half empty tin.

Danish Oil should be stored at a fairly constant temperature such as an understairs or kitchen cupboard. Somewhere like a shed that can be very hot and very cold is far from ideal. As a guide, shelf life of an opened tin is 6-12 months if stored correctly.

Rags soaked in products containing linseed oil are liable to self ignite so it's important that they are soaked and rinsed in water before disposing of them. Please apply to a test area first

  • Keep away from sources of ignition: No Smoking.
  • Keep out of reach of children.
  • In case of contact with eyes rinse immediately with plenty of water and seek medical advice.
  • Wear suitable gloves and eye/face protection.

A generous coat of danish oil finish will dry within 12 - 18 hours at room temperature. A thin coat will dry in around 4 hours.

Provides a great finish at the best price I could find for Danish Oil by Adam

The oil seems good quality and provides a great finish at the best price that I could find. It does seem pretty expensive for what it is though especially as multiple coats are often needed.

Great, easy to use wood finish by Ioan Davies

I have used Danish Oil in a number of my projects and find it a good, all round wood treatment for internal timber. Barretine's product is good and in a convenient plastic bottle that should help prevent the top jamming with dried, built up material.

Does exactly what it says on the can by Clive Whitton

I think I did a total of six coats over a period of two days after sanding the kitchen worktops. The result is very impressive, both in terms of appearance and also the resistance to liquid spills. Very easy to apply and goes an awful long way. Excellent stuff.

Easy to use and good finish by Lindsey Templeman

We decided to use this product over the whole of our new oak door with one coat, then use for a further two coats on the inside and the Osmo protection oil on the outside. We were very impressed with the ease of application and agree with others that thin coating is best. The only comments are that allow plenty for the first coat as the new wood soaked it up and it does take a while to dry so be able to leave your door most of the day before closing.
