Osmo Top Oil is a strong, durable oil designed to enhance the natural beauty of wood on tables and kitchen worktops drying to a clear, matt finish.

Based on natural waxes and oils, Osmo Top Oil does not peel, flake, crack or blister allowing for good performance in high humidity areas.

Hard wearing with excellent resistance against water, juices, wine, beer and fizzy drinks. For a satin finish, use Osmo Top Oil Clear Satin 3028. For an untreated look try Osmo Top Oil Natural 3068.

  • Overview


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 prior to applying the oil with a 120 - 150 grit paper. White spirit can also be used to remove impurities and other contaminates from the surface of the wood.

To remove existing paint or varnishes, use a Paint and Varnish Remover.

Application of Top Oil

Note: This product must be stirred thoroughly prior to application.

This product has a creamy consistency and is quick and easy to apply with a cloth, roller or paint brush. Apply THINLY with 2-3 coats total. No primer is required.

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.


Kitchen work surfaces and table tops that have been treated with Osmo TopOil can be cleaned with Osmo Wash And Care and water on a damp cloth and wiped dry. Stubborn marks and stains can be removed by using Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner, that both cleans and regenerates oiled surfaces.


Should this product get marked it is easy to repair. Normally a clean and a re-application of the top oil is enough to make most marks disappear. However if a wine stain (for example) has been left over night it may start to penetrate deeper than usual. In this instance the area can be lightly sanded with a finishing pad and then refinished with the top oil.

Equipment Cleaning

If applying with a brush, clean used brushes immediately after use with white spirit before the oil hardens. Wash out any application cloths immediately or store in a airtight container (danger of spontaneous-combustion).


Osmo Top Oil has a shelf life of 5 years or more if the tin remains closed. If only part of the tin is used, pour the remaining oil into a smaller bottle, jar or container and fill to the rim before sealing with an air tight lid. The remaining oil should be stored somewhere where the temperature does not fall below 5℃ or exceed 25℃, such as an under-stairs cupboard. This will help to preserve the life of the oil for longer.

Drying Time

Coats of top oil should be allowed to dry overnight for at least 8 to 10 hours. Room temperature, humidity and type of wood can all influence the overall drying time.


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

Oak kitchen worktop came up beautiful after application. Easy to apply and smooth over afterwards. Definitely use again, and only Osmo top oil.
Hannah Speller
Perfect oil for a matt look on your wooden worktops
I read all the reviews before buying, as I'd bought solid Black American Walnut wood worktops (being delivered natural and untreated) so it was really important to me to get the correct oil. I was not disappointed! Delivered quickly. Easy to apply. I used a microfibre cloth and after a few coats, once it had got a sodden, I then used a second clean microfibre cloth to wipe away any excess residue. Microfibre cloths seem to be a good thing for application. This oil does exactly as it says and leaves a beautifully natural matt finish. Also, seems to be protecting the worktops really well from food spillages and water so far (2 weeks after kitchen fitting)! Very happy so far. 2 x 500ml tins (still have about a third of the 2nd tin left) went far enough to oil more than 2 x 4m lengths of worktop a few times!
Very pleased with the finish. Sanded kitchen worktops down slightly before applying three coats over three days with a cloth. An easier job than I anticipated, well worth it.
Donna Everest
Worktop looks great
Used Top oil on our oak kitchen work top and it looks lovely and has made the surface water repellent. Easy to use and lovely finish
Beverley Fitch
Having looked around and getting advice from friends we decided on this oil for our newly installed solid wood worktops, and we are really happy with the results so far, the work surface feels protected but don't feel feel like there is a sticky layer of oil. Will defiantly be using again!!!

After trying other products on our oak table over the last 2 years this Osmo top oil has done exactly what we want, a fantastic Matt Finish
Pam Wilson
Excellent finish easily applied
We were looking for the best product to protect the 8ft x 6ft sculpture in lime that my wood carving tutor was working on. Two coats of this product gave an excellent natural finish, enhancing the wood grain but not leaving a shiny appearance.
Katherine Malkin
