Linseed oil health dangers? Answered
I frequently get linseed oil on my hands when I finish my woodworking, is it a health hazard? I sure like the smell!
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm told that linseed oil is edible until boiled. After it's boiled, it becomes hazardous if eaten (that's why you don't cook with flax oil, heat alters it). Is it a danger to the skin?
P.S. I'm using genuine, pure boiled linseed oil. It's not synthetic.
I added a totally random picture, for your enjoyment. :D
