Catchcan will usually fix this.
It comes from the PCV hose which connects from the rocker cover.

Its normal to have oil in the intake manifold.

Catch can will reduce it, but why bother.

Spent crankcase/rocker oil in the form of fumes are sucked in by vacuum pressure normally called blowby, it can assist in lubricating the upper cylinders but is burnt off rather than being vented into the atmosphere. This is also a part of emission compliance.

As stated /\ a catch can will limit the oil residue in the manifold.
