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.

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.

Used on 2 large kitchen worktops which havent been oiled for a number of years. So lots of preparation involved.First coat when on a treat,subsequent coats when on pefectly,just make sure you leave enough time between coats.I used the satin finish as it seemed to added a bit more depth to the wood.

Lovely by Helena Stonehouse

Easy to apply with cloth- used oils in the past that have been thicker and hard work with. I did put an extra coat on as after a few days it looked dry but maybe I spread it too thinly. Nice finish.

I will buy this again, not if but when needed! by Alison Siddons

This is an excellent product, recommended by a very competent and capable painter and decorator. It was reasonably priced, easy to use and provided an excellent finish! My sun faded and grand-daughter damaged oak table it like new again and friends who saw the finished product went home to order Osmo Oil for their own, wood, needs!

Amazing oil by Kathy T.

Had to make sure I put it on really thinly with cloth but the finish is amazing. It kept the worktops really light and I'm really pleased with the results. It's a satin finish which is what I wanted.

Rubbish by Susan Slater

We applied this product to our oak worktops as directed. 4 coats allowed the waiting time it stated and finely sanded between coats. It looks very good but as soon as we put anything wet on the water stained it. Within 4 days it was covered in cup marks, grease marks and allsorts. We had to sand off all the stains and start again. We used the Fiddes Hard Wax Oil and it is now perfect. Fabulous finish and everything just wipes off leaving no marks. Don't understand why this Osmo Top Oil had such good reviews it is RUBBISH.

A note from us...

Hello Susan,

Thank you for taking the time to review this product, its a shame you had a bad experience with this oil as it is generally very good. The recommended coats for this oil is 2 and application needs to be very thin. The oil soaks into the surface of the wood and dries hard making the wood liquid repellent and hard wearing.

Over application can result in the oil drying on the surface of the wood where it stops being effective in it protection and becomes easily, marked. This is easily resolved by removing the excess oil with White Spirits. I am sorry that you did not get the finish that you hoped for originally but pleased to hear that you where happy with the Fiddes Hard Wax Oil which is a very similar product and equally as good.

If there is anything further that I can help with please do let me know.

Many Thanks Samantha.
