Hard Wax Oil FAQ

Are interior Concrete oils safe for use on or near food preparation surfaces?

In general, most interior oils are safe for use on concrete surfaces that are close or come in to direct contact with food. Danish Oils are a good example of an oil that can be used on kitchen worktops, chopping boards and wooden food or fruit bowls. Worktop Oils are a range of oils that are specifically formulated to be used on food preparation surfaces. These products offer increased durability whilst enhancing the natural beauty and character of the concrete.

I’ve over applied the Concrete oil and it’s gone sticky, is there anything i can do?

Yes, over-application of concrete oil can be easily remedied by dampening a clean, lint free cloth in white spirit and wiping off the excess oil. Take care not to use too much white spirit this will break down and remove the surplus oil from the surface of the concrete.

How to Apply – Osmo Concrete Oil transcript. 

Hi, I’m Jay from Wood Finishes Direct. In this video I’ll be demonstrating the very best way to apply Osmo Concrete Oil. In the dark about what the Osmo Concrete Oil 610 does? We have you covered! Check out our preparation video now.


Applying the Osmo Concrete Oil is very easy but your choice of applicator will vary due to the size of your project. Thankfully, the Osmo Soft Tip Brush, my chosen applicator for this product comes in various sizes. It has a fantastic blend of synthetic and natural bristles for even distribution of oils, offering a great level of control making it ideal for small to medium projects like what we are working on today. For larger areas such as floors, I’d go for the  Osmo floor Brush, it’s great for limiting over application issues.


So the prep is done, the applicator is selected and you’re happy with your test area. We are ready to jump right in. Start by giving the tin a good stir before and periodically during application to prevent inconsistencies in the finish. Load the brush with oil, dab off any excess and apply thinly in long even strokes in manageable areas to prevent inconsistencies. Once applied, remove any excess from the surface with a lint free microfiber cloth before allowing it to dry.

After 8-10 hours give it a light rub down with a finishing pad, then youre ready to apply the second, final coat in the same way as the first. This method should be repeated over the two coats required and you’re done!

The results we got on this industrial style coffee table and decorative flower pot are great. We’re really happy with them.

  1. Does a lithium densifier/hardener count as a previous sealer? Most things I can find online involve a densifier and a separate sealer applied afterwards, which makes me think I can use densifier and Osmo? But it’s very hard to work out for sure. Thanks.

    • Good Morning Rob,

      Osmo products are designed to be applied directly to a wooden surface, any previous or current treatment applied could or would prevent the oil from soaking into the wood as needed. And so I would not recommend this combination. A densifier for wood substrates is not something we come across very often and if you would like to get some further information on your project why not get in touch via our contact us page and perhaps we can help with product and preparation guidance.

      Kind Regards Samantha.
