"Yes you need to oil it once a year at least, the oil and care kit should have come with the worktops when purchased. If you don’t have the kit, you can buy one from any reputable kitchen worktop supplier.. alternatively you can purchase oil and cloths from a decorator centre like Brewers. I hope that helps...."

"Oil is the best way. A very light rub down each time before oiling"

Yes if the work tops have already been oiled then this must be kept up with.
However there is away around this
The work tops will need sanding down gradually using correct type of sanding pads or paper. And then applying a stain and sanded again and lastly by applying an external (yacht) type of clear varnish."
