You can achieve the following effects depending on the top oil used:-

  • Osmo Top Oil Matt (3058) emphasizes the wood's grain and natural characteristics, and provides a warm and rich effect without a sheen.
  • Osmo Top Oil Satin (3028) is subtle with a noble shimmer which resembles and emphasizes the wood grain modestly.
  • Osmo Top Oil Natural (3068) may produce a slightly milky or white film effect on darker exotic hardwoods such as Iroko. This is caused by the very small amount of white pigment that Osmo add to the oil to retain the natural, unfinished look of lighter woods such as Oak, Pine, Larch and Beech.
  • Osmo Top Oil Acacia (3061) is a lightly tinted version of that adds a brown hue to worktops for an elegant finish.

Ensure that real wood kitchen work surfaces and worktops are clear of dirt, debris and other contaminates before applying Osmo Top Oil.

  • New or previously oiled work tops can be lightly sanded back to a 120 - 150 grit finish
  • To remove existing paint or varnishes, use a suitable Paint or Varnish Remover
  • Fill small cracks, larger joints or holes with an appropriate filler such as Osmo Wood Filler

Applying Osmo Top Oil

Always do a test area before starting any project and follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times. Osmo Top Oil is ready to use and does not require thinning. Stir well before use

  1. Apply thinly along the wood grain with a lint-free cloth
  2. Remove any excess top oil
  3. Allow to dry appropriately with good ventilation
  4. Repeat the same process again

The grain of the wood is enhanced once this product has been applied and if the final finish is not shiny enough, buffing it with a cloth will create a sheen. Because the natural oils and waxes penetrate deep into the surface they help to keep the wood supple thus preventing it from getting dry and brittle and reducing swelling and shrinkage.

If a deeper satin finish is required, the oiled surface can be polished with Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner once the surface has fully dried.

Oiled surfaces should not be cleaned with a steam cleaner or steam mop as this degrades the performance of the finish.

Regular Cleaning

Kitchen work surfaces and table tops that have been treated with Osmo Top Oil can be cleaned with Osmo Wash And Care and a damp cloth, then wiped dry.

Deep Cleaning

Stubborn marks and stains can be removed by using Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner, that both cleans and regenerates oiled surfaces


Renovating, even partially, is easy. Just clean and re-treat worn areas with a thin coat of Osmo Top Oil - no sanding, no repair marks, no removal of previous Top Oil finish. No repair marks will be visible if applied thinly and appropriately.

Easy to use, better finish than I've had using other products by Barry Robinson

A very easy to use product which dries to a very natural looking finish. And , what's more it's easy to refinish if it does get damaged. No need to strip and refinish the entire work surface, just the bit you've been stupid enough to harm! (Voice of experience). Exceeded my expectations.

Disappointed with the product but not customer service! by Marilyn Warner

I found this product to be sticky and hard to work, hence the reason I would not buy it again. However the customer service from Wood Finishes Direct was se one to none and I cannot fault them.

Amazingly good on very light coloured wood by Helen Gillespie

I really rate this product range and this was the first time I have used this particular product. Its amazingly good on very light coloured wood and keeps that lovely light colour perfectly. I also used it on some light oak however you could see some of the white pigment that is within the oil sitting on the top of the wood. It did say on the tin this can happen so I was warned, I just didnt think it would be so apparent on such a light colour wood, but then again this can be used to your advantage as its almost like a limewash, I quite like the effect you just need to know it will happen quite easily.

Excellent and easy to use by Leslie Bode

I used this to re-do our pine counter tops. It took a lot of prep work, but the application of the product was easy. Each coat made it darker and darker (which is what I wanted). They look updated and new. Time will tell how they hold up, but so far, so good.
