Osmo Top Oil 3068 Natural 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 3061 Acacia is a lightly pigmented / coloured version of Osmo Top Oil. This variation adds colour to worktops for an elegant finish.

Osmo Top Oil 3058 Matt emphasizes the wood's grain and natural characteristics, and provides a warm and rich effect without a sheen.

Osmo Top Oil 3028 Satin is subtle with a noble shimmer which resembles and emphasizes the wood grain modestly.

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.

Arrived well packaged and promptly by Ina Lohrberg

Excellent product - this will be my choice for my worktop protection from now on. Worktops are easy to clean after a few treatments, liquids seem to bead of the wood, and don't stain - but the wood retains its natural look and feel.

Amazing product by Nciky Donald

Really easy to use, looks fantastic. YouTube was handy for seeing how to apply- I did two coats thinly then a generous couple of coats on a fresh oak worktop and the result is stunning. The smell is quite nice, too.

Worth the effort by Nigel Freeland

I was a little worried after reading some reviews, but tried it anyway. I'm glad that I did. I ordered the natural oil because I didn't want glossy oak work tops and definitely not the yellowing that comes with Danish oil. The finish is fantastic, no shine and almost looks almost limed. The oak tops have almost kept their natural colour. Make sure that you sand the wood perfect down to 240 grit then 2 thin coats allowing a day before the second coat. I was worried about putting it on too thick and consequently didn't put it enough on. The surface looked great but marked very easily. So 2 more coats and everything looks fine. Water just bobbles on the surface and stains just wipe off. It's only been finished a couple of weeks but still looks fantastic.

Easy to apply, lasting protection by Paul Ensor

Osmo top oil is safe to use on kitchen worktops showing off the natural beauty of the wood. It is so easy to apply anyone can do it, and provides excellent protection against the rigours of the kitchen.

We purchased the Osmo top oil to wax our new work tops. We found it easy to apply & it didnt smell to much either. The oil really makes the grain stand out & enhances the colour of the wood beautifully

Great product by Jess Taylor

Applied 3 coats of this over a layer of osmo wood protector on my oak worktop. It's only been a few weeks but so far we're impressed. It gives a lovely rich colour to the wood and water, tomato juice, cola, red wine and tea so far have not left any marks. We have been careful and wiped up fairly quickly but still feel that this gives good protection.

Easy to use -- brings a beautiful satin finish to the wood by Debra Freechild

I've used this over Osmo Wood Protector as a water resistant top protection on a brand new oak draining board. It looks fantastic -- but only time will tell if it protects the wood against rotting.
