There is no requirement to oil soapstone. You can leave soapstone unoiled however oil in general will oxidize with soapstone and darken the stone. Therefore if you touch or drop any oil on the countertop, it will darken thus creating a more uneven appearance over time. Some customers do choose to leave their stone unoiled to darken naturally. It is a more natural look. The beauty of soapstone is, if you decide later, you can always oil it. You can't go wrong with soapstone!
