Linseed or flaxseed oil is derived from the seeds of the plant. It has been used for hundreds of years for the protection of interior and exterior wood. Linseed oil is becoming more popular again, as it is non-toxic and shows environmentally friendly characteristics. After application, it penetrates deep into the wood and shows the natural grain beautifully.
The most popular kind of oil is the double-boiled or polymerized linseed oil. It can be used to finish food contact surfaces such as wood cutting boards etc. It is also used on moldings, beams, furniture, and floors. Scratches can be repaired easily with a small application of oil.
