Made from 100% pure cold pressed flax seed oil, great-tasting Waihi Bush Flax Original is a widely used New Zealand favourite for topping up Omega-3 levels.
Research has shown that most western diets have an imbalance of Omega essential fatty acids. While our bodies are evolved on a 1:1 ratio of Omega-3 to Omega-6, researchers have shown that many people consume more than 20 times more Omega-6 than Omega-3! This deficiency of essential Omega-3 fatty acids results in the symptoms of sub-optimal health, including low immunity, vision problems, dry skin and hair, low energy and fatigue, learning problems, mood swings and depression.
Waihi Bush Flaxseed Oil is Certified Organic by AgriQuality New Zealand.

100 % Cold Pressed, Unrefined, Extra Virgin, Certified Organic Flax Seed Oil.
Waihi Bush recommend taking 1 to 2 tablespoons of oil a day (15-30ml).
When first taking flax seed oil, they advise that you start off slowly with a small amount (e.g. 1 teaspoon a day), and build up the amount over time. Excessive amounts of flax seed oil may cause diarrhoea or nausea. Do not take on an empty stomach as this can cause nausea in some people.
I have suffered from back pain and dry skin. After a couple of weeks of using flax seed oil my back pain was relieved and skin was smooth. I have found flax seed oil good for joint ailments and skin conditions.
This flax oil is lovely, and great for both humans and animals! I put a spoonful into my dog's food each night. It's good for her coat, and to help ease itching of her skin. Flax Oil keeps well in the fridge.
My family and I love Waihi Bush flax seed oil, I whizz a cup of the oil with a block of organic butter - tastes delish, easy to spread straight out of fridge!
simply the best I have tried. I dont use butter or margarine anymore, I drizzle the oil on my toast and sandwiches and even pour a tablespoon over my breakfast cereal super yummy and way healthier than all the chemicals in margarine and the saturated fat in butter, great way to get your omegas.
My husband has been taking flax seed oil liquid for some years now. It is marvellous for stopping his skin itching because of having to take medicines for High blood pressure. He always notices it when he is away and we forget to take it, so much so that when we did a month down south in February we stopped at a health food store in Alexandra and got some for him to use and that was only a week without it.
Love this product - just a tablespoon a day plus a balanced diet and I know I have the Omegas covered! No need to disguise the taste as it is really yummy. Swear by it.
We take this every day - absolutely fantastic for skin and hair and teeth, wow, great product and tastes nice too. Easy to use also in smoothies.
Fab product, use it liberally on toast, tastes amazing! Great substitute for olive oil in salad dressings as well.
I have been giving 15mls to my chooks and they are giving back to us beautiful eggs with a very deep yellow yolk and their plumage looks great. thanks for such a wonderful product.
Excellent oil, I add it to my protein shakes, stir it into my yoghurt with LSA and add it to my porrige once it's cooled down. Great tasting oil, one of the best I've tasted.
100% no additives, Extra-Virgin, always tastes fresh and yummy. My Optician also says eating Flax Seed oil helps with increasing the natural eye lubrication and moisture for people with dry eyes, so thats an extra bonus! If you're comparing brands, the Flaxomega brand of Flax Seed oil has a 0.1% soy anti-oxidant additive which just doesn't measure up - tastes like inferior bulk cooking oil. I always go back to Waihi Bush happy for over 10 years now.
Excellent stuff. I swear by it. Lovely nutty taste too. Superb!
Delicious on salads, roast veggies and added to protein shakes. Far tastier and better for you than using shop bought dressing that are full of preservatives.
Lovely product, nice subtle flavour awesome in smoothies and muesli.
This is the best Flax Seed Oil product I have tried, hands down. A little pricier than other NZ Flax seed oil products, so I usually wait until it is on special to buy it.
This is one of the best Flax oils I've tried. Great tasting and an easy way to get your Omega 3's. I take it after dinner with a little water. Perfect for salad dressings as well :o)
Highly recommend this product! I use it daily on salads & veges. Great to know I'm getting my Omegas easily!
Tastes good and helped relieve dry skin.
I love this product, it is a great alternative to fish oil.
I love Waihi Bush Flaxseed Oil!! It makes my skin & hair feel fantastic & healthy! I wish i had it on tap!
Waihi Bush organic oil is so yummy and light. I use it on my toast and in my smoothie for a healthy breakfast start to the day. There is no after taste, like with fish capsules, and knowing it is Kiwi makes me proud. Healthpost gets it to me cool and a couple of days after ordering it. Brilliant product and service.
Wow, my husband and I have discovered this amazing flax oil on your website, and now won't use any other brand. The taste is really fresh and nutty and the fact that it is NZ produced and organic is a bonus. Discovering Healthpost in general has been a real advantage.... great company providing fantastic friendly and speedy service.
Fantastic, if you don't like swallowing supplements, this is an ideal way to get your Omegas. I mix it in with homemade yoghurt and its undetectable. Was diagnosed with arthritis in the neck a couple of years ago and tried this on a friend's advice, and have not been waking up with a sore neck on the chilly winter mornings as Previously experience, highly recommend to all. AA++
I have been taking this oil daily for several years now and am impressed with how it keeps my usually dry skin moist. Happy to recommend it to anyone who has problems with dry skin.
Waihi bush is outstanding! Great product. Would definitely recommend it to athlete who wants some decent repairing food for their body.
Simply magic! This oil was recommended to me about 3 years ago when I was suffering, every month, from debilitating PMS. I have taken a daily dose of 1 tablespoon (over my fruit and yoghurt based breakfast) ever since and no longer experience ANY premenstral symptoms. I started on Flax Bloom and moved on to Original after several months. My hair shines, my finger nails are strong and healthy - the benefits just go on and on. Thank you HealthPost for your competitive pricing. I'm a dedicated fan!
Fantastic product - helping my skin condition and weight loss
Found this product to be good, the taste is also not to bad to take directly and is also great to add to smoothies and other food. Great for the skin
Just love this oil. Fantastic results for hair, skin and nails but also I find this is great for healthy weight maintenance. Gives me vitality. My partner jokes by saying I'm oiling up the engine. True in a way. Highly recommended :)
I take flaxseed oil every morning. This is amazing stuff! Be careful to keep refrigerated once opened. With the liquid option you can mix into smoothies or barley grass and water.
Since I have been using Waihi Flax Seed Oil I have found my skin to be a lot less dry and flakey and it has a nicer taste than a lot of other oils. I either put a table spoon full in my smoothie or dribble it over my cereal.
My husband just loves this flax seed oil and if we are going to be away from home for longer than a few days he insists I pack it as he finds it keeps his skin from itching.
I love this product! It's inexpensive & is loaded with omega-3 fatty acids. It can be added to just about anything, making flax seed a great bang for your nutritional buck. I shake some Flax seed oil and tamari together in a glass bottle for a fantastic dressing for salads and steamed vegetables.
Love, love, love this product. My whole body and well being benifits from this oil. My nails are strong, my hair is beautiful, my feeling of being healthy and refreshed is noticeable. I love flax seed oil.
Very good natural product. Great for keeping those bad joints loose and free.
Great stuff, with a pleasant nutty taste. I have a large spoonful of it in my cereal every morning. I take it for the Omega 3, which I'm pretty sure has been instrumental in preventing my formerly regular (hormonal) migraines. It's also improved my skin (smoothed out rough patches) and my mood.
I love this product. I have a spoonful each day and I have noticed a great improvement in the health of my fingernails. I have always had trouble with brittle nails and now they are in really good condition.
