Achieve a range of effects with the following Osmo worktop oil products:-

  • Osmo Top Oil Matt (3058) emphasizes the wood's grain and natural characteristics, and provides a warm and rich effect without a sheen
  • Osmo Top Oil Satin (3028) is subtle with a noble shimmer which resembles and emphasizes the wood grain modestly
  • Osmo Top Oil Natural (3068) 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 Acacia (3061) is a lightly tinted version of that adds a brown hue to worktops for an elegant finish

Before opening the 5ml sample sachets, squeeze the packet several times to ensure that the oil and pigments inside are thoroughly mixed.

Ensure that real wood kitchen work surfaces and worktops are clear of dirt, debris and other contaminates before applying Osmo Top Oil.

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 Osmo worktop oil thinly along the wood grain with a lint-free cloth or Osmo Soft Tip Brush
  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, lint-free cloth, then wiped dry. Alternatively, use Osmo Spray Cleaner (8026)

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 and no removal of previous Top Oil finish is required. No repair marks will be visible if applied thinly and appropriately.

Q. Is this the best worktop oil for new, untreated English Oak kitchen work top surfaces?

A. Osmo worktop oil is ideal for all sorts of Oak kitchen worktops. It is easily applied, very durable, resistent to scratches, scuffs and stains from liquid spillages. Osmo Top Oil is also very easy to maintain and patch repair if required making it perfect for your kitchen worktop surfaces.

Excellent finish, easy to apply by Anthony Prigg

We used this product on our oak kitchen worktops and the finish is excellent - smooth, hard-wearing, no shine, and really enriches the colour and grain of the wood. Could not be happier!

Very good for kitchen worktops by Ben Leighton

Quite dark oil, almost honey hazelnut and darker than we thought but that was our choice. Absorbs very easily and water does not soak in.

Used it to reseal a natural wood kitchen surface and it did the job by Hilary Ritchie

I used this to reseal a natural wood kitchen surface with had grease stains, scorching and some ring marks. I used the cleaner first and sanded the surface lightly before using the top oil. It is extremely sticky and also does take some time to penetrate and dry. It is easy to put too much on and get left with a residue. I lightly sanded and did it a second time and got a good finish when it was dried and polished up a bit.

I wish I had found this sooner! by Christine Roche

I’m delighted with this product, for ease of application, and a lovely Matt finish. I had previously used danish oil, that takes a lot of careful application, can be sticky, and shiny. Osmo Top Oil glides on with little effort, has low odour, doesn’t bulk with several coats and dries quickly. Since my first use, after sanding my oak work top back to grain to get rid of the danish oil I have app,ied 3 coats and used it once since just to lean and revive them. I bought two tins of 500m to cover 10 ft of Work top, however I still have plenty left in 1 tin. Highly recommend.

Excellent by G D Brace

We have a relatively new oak kitchen worktop which was finished by the installer and me at various intervals after. The finish was poor and never seemed to completely dry out. I decided to sand it all off (6 months later) and use the Osmo Top Oil. I have now put on 3 coats over a period of a few days and have obtained an excellent matt finish. I will not use any other oil finish in future.

Great product, leaving a natural Matt look by Mulligan

I have used this on my new solid oak kitchen worktops. It looks great. It has a natural Matt finish. I used the whole lot over 3 coats but I am probably going to order another to do a 4th coat as I feel it will give it more protection. The water just pools on top, but I do wipe it away quick enough, so not too sure if it would just sit there.

A subtle finish by Ray Benson

The natural version, with white pigment added, works well in preventing the brighter wet look that oils usually give. It's easy to apply and gives good coverage. White streaks can be left if too much oil is applied, so you need to wipe it well but the end result is a subtle gold just slightly deeper than the natural colour of the wood.
