About Danish Oil
Our Danish Oil has been formulated to seal and finish any wooden surface as well as re-oiling wood for maintenance. A time tested and proven blend of natural oils and resins, it penetrates deep into all interior and exterior wood and dries to provide a hard, durable, and highly attractive satin finish.
The natural finish provided with the application of Danish Oil provides water resistance to all woods (including bare wood), helping to reduce staining and make the wood easier to clean and maintain. This protects and enhances the natural beauty of your wood and does not leave a surface film that can chip or scratch with use. Incredibly versatile, our Danish Oil may also be used as a primer before painting or varnishing.
In addition, it is compliant with Articles In Contact With Food regulations, Danish Oil is also ideal for the treatment of worktops and utensils used in the kitchen and dining areas, where contact with food, spills and exposure to water and other liquids are a frequent hazard to unprotected surfaces.
Danish Oil can be used on all types of wood (oak, pine, beech, walnut etc) and on wood used in any environment.
- Interior & Exterior Wood
- Hardwoods and Softwoods
- Kitchen Worktops & Utensils
- Doors and Windows
- Hardwood Floors

Danish Oil for Maintenance of Wood
For maintenance of new or used items, simply re-oiling once a year is sufficient for year-round protection. Further coats can be applied to high use areas, if required.
Danish Oil for Restoration of Wood
When restoring old items of wood, it is important that you remove all previous oils, waxes or finishes before applying the Oil. If the surface feels rough, it should be sanded smooth first, for best results.
How to apply Danish Oil
Ensure the surface is clean and dry before application, and any old oils or waxes have been removed if restoring an item. Use our Wood Cleaner to clean the wood if needed.
Shake well before use. If you are unsure of the finish, test it on spare wood, or an unseen area first.
Apply the Danish Oil liberally to a Foam Brush and wipe onto the surface following the direction of the grain. Leave to penetrate for two to three minutes and wipe away any excess oil with a Lint Free Cloth.
Leave to dry for four to six hours.. Two more coats should be applied after the first, leaving the full four to six hours drying time between each coat to ensure the previous application has completely dried before applying the next.
For the finest of finishes, use one of our De-nibbing Pads inbetween coats of oil to create a super smooth finish. Once the last coat of Danish Oil has dried you can use the wood as normal.
If you’d like a polished look to the wood, use our Beeswax Polish at this stage
