Osmo Natural Oil Woodstain is perfect for all exterior woods including doors, windows and windowsills, carports, timber cladding, balcony, wooden decking, screens and smooth fences, pergolas, summer houses and garden furniture.

  • All colour shades can be mixed with each other to create any number of alternative colours
  • We can mix to a specific RAL shade. Use this RAL chart and input reference under "Special Instructions" at checkout, allowing a minimum of 10 working days. RAL matched colours are made to order and are therefore non-refundable

Please be advised that 125ml tins are printed in German only. For application instructions refer to the overview below.

Ensure surfaces to be treated with Osmo Woodstain are clean, dry and frost-free prior to application.

  • Existing oil finishes should be lightly sanded and cleaned before application
  • Existing coatings such as paint and varnish must be fully removed by sanding or stripping back to bare wood
  • Remove sanding dust thoroughly from the surface with a brush or vacuum cleaner before application
  • Use white spirit to degrease and remove surface contaminates if required
  • If additional protection against blue stain, rot and insects is desired, pre-treat the wood if possible on all sides with Osmo WR Base Coat (4001)

Always do a small test area before starting any project and follow the manufacturer's instructions on the tin at all times. Stir Osmo Natural Wood Stain thoroughly before and periodically during application. Wood surface must be clean, dry and frost-free (moisture content max. 20℃). If possible, apply the first coat to all sides of the wood before installation to offer the best all-round protection.

  1. Apply Osmo wood stain thinly and evenly along the wood grain with a brush or microfibre roller, and spread well
  2. Work the oil into the surface grain of the wood
  3. Wipe off any excess oil from the surface of the wood with a clean, lint free cloth
  4. Allow the first coat to dry fully
  5. Apply a second coat using the same method as the first

Please be aware that rough sawn timber is more absorbent, meaning coverage per litre will be greatly reduced.

The dried surface is initially satin-gloss at first and is afterwards satin. The transparent colour tone of the finish will be influenced by the woods natural colour, causing the result to deviate from the colour shown on the colour chart. Lightly pigmented (coloured) transparent finishes have little protection against UV influences and are therefore not recommended for surfaces prone to strong sunlight.

Regular Cleaning

If wooden surfaces develop signs of mould or algae, we recommend cleaning with an appropriate exterior wood cleaner.


If surfaces show signs of wear or a loss of weather resistance, clean and add a maintenance coat of Osmo Natural Oil Woodstain to the existing finish.

This one really does do what it says on the tin by John Travers

I am already a convert to Osmo timber care products and have always found them to be really effective with a long lasting finish

The product covers a large area by Derek Haswell

I used the stain on the windows and frames of the front of my house and was pleased with the result and the fact that I have 200 mL remaining from the 750 mL container. It has rained several times since the application and it is pleasing to see the drops of water obviously not penetrating the product.

Worth the cost by Mrs PJ Green

Had to treat a large wooden garage and was a bit wary of the colour but didn't want "wood" shade. The product was easy to use having done 2 days of prep and base oil treatment. However have had to order another tin as the product did not give me the area coverage suggested by the manufacturer. And the colour? - love it- battleship grey.

Handy sample size Good product by Alison

Ordered the samples first to try different colours and then bought a full tin. Samples were very small but contained just enough to choose the best colour. Based on the coverage of the samples i thought I needed a big tin but I ended up with way too much left over! I used on hardwood window frames around double glazing. I had to apply it very sparingly otherwise it would drip. Needed 2 coats. Very pleased with the final result.

Great coverage Nice colour and finish! by Oleg M

I've used this product for a few years now and it produces a great finish and has good coverage once you get used to using it sparingly. Still looks great two years after application.
