Carbolin Raw Linseed Oil is a traditional and completely natural oil obtained from the extract of flax seed. Linseed oil penetrates unsealed wood to leave a natural, water resistant finish with a slightly enhanced colour.
You will find that it darkens slightly with age.
Use on oak beams, bean canes, cricket bats and many other woodcraft applications. Carbolin raw linseed oil hardens slowly when exposed to air, so use where a quick drying time is not needed. When the weather is kind, try using it on willow fencing diluted 50/50 with white spirit. Want to know more about linseed oil or other wood oils? Read our blog here.

Please take care when disposing of rags used to apply linseed oil. Rags soaked in linseed oil are a known hazard and can spontaneously combust as this East Sussex Fire and Rescue feature illustrates.
