Pure Swedish Raw Linseed Oil

Swedish cold-pressed raw linseed oil of the highest quality. The oil is made traditionally from cold pressed flax seeds and stored for at least 6 months after being pressed so that any slime products may settle. It is a natural treatment without any chemical additives. The absolutely pure linseed oil is then decanted to another storage tank.

Raw linseed oil has a lower surface tension than water and therefore penetrates deeper than water into all forms of substrate. This ability renders it unrivalled where protection against wood rot is concerned. In addition to oiling, raw linseed oil is used to dilute linseed oil paint outdoors. It is also used for storing paint brushes. Raw linseed oil dries significantly slower than boiled linseed oil. This product is not bleached or filtered. Not for food or hygiene applications and not sensitive to freezing.

Applications: Use this organic raw linseed oil as a base coat before linseed oil paint. Wood Shingles, Wood Siding, Wood Decks, Porches, Wooden Boats, undercoating for cars etc.

Paint Removing: Use to reconstitute old paint prior to heating with the Speedheater paint removal system. Softens paint layers and reduces paint dust created by scraping.

About Linseed Oil
MADE IN SWEDEN The Scandanavian people have known about the unique properties of linseed oil for several thousand years. Linseed oil penetrates into wood, protecting it from moisture and rot.

Linseed oil is cold pressed from the seeds of the flax flower. This is done "cold" to prevent impurities getting into the oil.

The raw linseed oil is purified and refined through the addition of oxygen to produce boiled or "cooked" linseed oil. This process eliminates protein and improves aspects such as the drying time, shine and purity. Purified linseed oil is mold and mildew-free.

Uses:
Thinning the Linseed Oil Paint.
Maintenance of old Linseed Oil Painted surfaces.
May be used as a first coat on extremely dried out wood.
Add a few ounces of paint to the boiled linseed oil to create a stain.
Purified Raw Linseed Oil is excellent for long term storage of paint brushes.

  • Has this organic raw linseed oil been purified and refined/heated through the addition of oxygen? In other words, is it the true boiled or cooked linseed oil?

    No! The raw linseed oil is just that, raw. We will be offering boiled linseed oil in the quart and gallon sizes also coming soon.

  • Does the sterilization process boil this product? What is the process that is used for sterilization?

    This products is raw, natural, and contains no additives. The oil is aged for a minimum of 6 months after pressing so that any waste material settles. This acts as a natural purification process!

  • Hello You can eat this product?

    This product is not made for consumption.

  • Is this considered "food grade"?

    There is technically no food safe certification available, however the product is completely pure and natural with 0 toxins or chemicals added. It is up to each customer on how you prefer to use the product!

  • Can you use this on wood for a strawberry planter?

    Yes, you can use linseed oil on wood planters for a natural finish and/or to nourish the wood

  • Can this product be used on kitchen tools like knives, cutting boards, and iron cast skillets to prevent rust?

    Raw linseed oil itself for rust prevention is questionable mostly due to the longer drying time. Boiled linseed oil or even with added turpentine for quicker drying times are better for rust prevention and even drying on the object for rust prevention.

  • Can this be applied to new clean wood after sanding without using linseed oil soap?

    Yes, you can use linseed oil on any wooden surface as long as it is clean and free from debris!
