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.

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.

Excellent product by Fiona Saugman

Used the Danish Oil on my dining room floor. This oil went on really smoothly. Put 4 thin coats with sponge applicator and worked in with lint free cloth. Left each coat 24 hours to dry completely. The finish is really good and the floor looks really good. A nice deep finish.

Excellent quality and price by Robin Kibble

Product delivered with great efficiency. Works a dream on cherry wood pipes I'm crafting, enhancing the natural colour of the grain with a finished lacquer far exceeding what I hoped for. As for the protection, time will tell!

Dries fast, shiny finish, not too yellow by Robert Macintosh

Because it's fast drying, it's closer to a varnish than the raw linseed oil I use on most things. I wiped it onto a beech worktop, 4 coats in about a week, with a very light sanding with 600 grade emery before the last 2 coats. A nice glossy result that brings out the colours of the wood. And the suction feet on my mixer like it. This amateur is happy.

Great product by Sarah Holmes

Easy to apply, drys well and after a few applications is water resistant. Tip- when you have reached the desired shade with the oil use osmo top oil for the final coats to really waterproof your worktop. No more stains or black marks!

Easy to apply, looks good on my old re-finished worktops by DR

I used this on kitchen worktops that I had sanded down. Although the surface prep was not brilliant the oil has given a nice even finish and was easy to apply.

Top Quality Oil which covers the wood with ease and no drips or runs showing by Frank Birrell

Extremely easy to apply, The Oil is of a smooth and consistent texture which ensures a high definition finish especially when applied with a lint cloth onto the surface. This is the first product I have purchased from Wood Finishes Direct and it certainly won't be my last......

I have made a case for some loose dies which I stained then did with your danish oil which gave it a lovely satin sheen non sticky, a nice alternative to varnish!
