These oils seal and protect the wood whilst enhancing the wood grain’s natural beauty. Most garden furniture oils contain UV protection to prevent the wood from silvering.
The best way to bring back the natural colour of the wood, as if it was new, is to use either Osmo Power Gel or Barrettine Wood Reviver. These oxalic acid gels create a chemical reaction with the wood surface which revives the colour and cleans the wood. This is recommended prior to oiling if the outdoor furniture has greyed.
If you have teak garden furniture, we would recommend buying Teak Oil. Teak Oils are not coloured but they are thinner in viscosity which makes them easier for dense grained and naturally oily woods to absorb.
Garden furniture oils will protect throughout the spring, summer and autumn months, but we do recommend covering wooden garden furniture during winter months when there may be long periods of very wet weather and frosts.
