Any “oil” finish will do what you don’t want it to if applied directly to the wood.

Take some scraps and try something along the lines of a “Platinum, or super clear” Shellac. Do 2 or 3 good coats on some scrap, and see if you like the look.

If it’s right use that, and on top you can put a more durable Poly type finish, if you need the durability. I would stay off Oils, and use a water based poly.
