Below is a little advice from the manufacturer ( translated from German to English)

One thing in advance: It is not absolutely necessary to oil your wooden articles regularly! This is purely a matter of taste and ensures that your wooden products will shine for a long time like on the first day.

Furthermore, you do not necessarily have to buy a special oil for maintenance. You can also use traditional and traditional cooking oils that you probably already have at home. 

An oil treatment makes the surface thicker and prevents germs from penetrating too deeply into stressed wood fibres. The oil also gives the wood a soft and natural feel and gives it a new shine. To avoid unwanted changes such as rancid smell or stains in the wood, the right oil must be used. 


Suitable oils suggested by manufacturer.
