What Is the Difference between Raw and Boiled Linseed Oil?

Answer

Raw and boiled linseed oils are wood oils used for application on wooden surfaces. Raw linseed oil is entirely natural oil extracted from the flax seed and is so safe you can drink it (for medicinal purposes). Boiled linseed oil is natural oil blended with driers to improve its drying time such that a thin coat can dry within a day.
