A dusty, woodworm infested yet
beautiful beam in a renovated cottage is rejuvenated
with a coat of raw linseed oil.
This is an example of the penetration
power of organic linseed oil. It soaks deep into the
wood protecting the wood from absorbing and trapping
water and moisture. This is a feature that can not
be reproduced with any wood preservative made from
petroleum products today. In addition, organic linseed
oil is not dangerous to work with and is completely
safe for the environment.
Organic purified linseed oil has
been taking care of the Teak wood in the cockpit of
this boat for three years. This is the only solution
that is nourishing the wood this well. It looks very
nice. The surface is cleaned with the organic linseed
oil soap yearly and then wiped down with a very thin
coat of the Organic Raw Linseed Oil.

About Organic 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
- 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.
Tip: You can heat with gentle, infrared
heat (we recommend the Silent
Paint Remover) to boost surface penetration.
NOTE: Rags soaked in linseed oil may self-ignite.
Soak them in water and dispose of them.
