I have never heard anything supporting linseed oil being bad for children that was not speculation or personal opinion. And I have heard just as many people say that it is completely harmless, as people that say it could be dangerous. Maybe it is just a matter of opinion, but I personally think that it might be a matter of bad press. Something like urban legends that start because of something that sounds so fantastic….that people assume it must be true. And then it goes on and on, based on what others have heard someone else say. I mean no disrespect to kolwdwrkrsgirl, or anyone else. I just think it’s an interesting aspect of society.

I think it is safe after cured correctly (most say up to 30 days, I trust 2-3 weeks at room temp, 25c). It’s a natural oil, look up flax seed, it’s just the “hardeners” that need to cure out. I mean really, most things could be called dangerous. If I drank mineral oil I’m sure it would kill me. I heard that eating too many bananas will kill you. well…...I don’t like bananas, so I’ll believe that one and stay away. :)

I think it’s safe Alex, and if you do too, and nothing states otherwise, then no worries :)

Happy New Year to you also!
