Waihi Bush Flax Original - Flax Seed Oil

- Waihi Bush Flaxseed Oil is produced from organic, New Zealand grown flax -

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.

Flax seed oil is approximately 60% Omega-3 alpha linolenic acid (ALA), and also contains the Omega-6 linoleic acid (LA) and the monounsaturated Omega-9 oleic acid. The formulation is approximately 61% Omega-3, 17% Omega-6 and 14% Omega-9.

You can have absolute confidence in the superior quality of organic Waihi Bush farm flax seed products. Our flax seed is grown organically by selected farmers in the South Island of New Zealand. After harvest we cold press the seed; the oil is absolutely pure, with nothing added and nothing removed. Then we check the oil for quality and taste, then bottle it. We take care at every step to maintain the integrity of this nutritious oil so that it reaches you in perfect condition.

Waihi Bush Flaxseed Oil is Certified Organic by AgriQuality New Zealand.

For more detailed product information please visit the Waihi Bush site.


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.

More than expected good taste! Review by

Amazing!! This is my first flax Seed oil and very fruity! I love one.I will repeat this one for my health.

use it every day Review by

Suggest customers try beating waihi bush flaxseed oil with cottage cheese. Maybe about 1 tblsp to a cup (I do low fat anchor cottage cheese) Amazing creamy texture and yummy healthy topping.

Fantastic product! Totally recommend! Review by

Love, love, love this product! I'm not a great fan of oily tasting things and this product is not at all strong smelling or tasting. Everyday I add this to our smoothie with banana, berries, cinnamon, spirulina, yoghurt, and oat/rice milk - you cannot taste it at all (though I've never had it on its own). The great thing about this product is it has no trans fats either - the only flaxseed oils I could find in our local supermarket did. We are onto our third bottle and I'll keep ordering it. Also thank you to health post for your awesome delivery time! Great service! A very happy customer :).

More than happy with this product Review by

I have found by taking a tablespoon a day of Waihi Bush Flaxseed Oil is most wonderful for aching joints. This has been proved that when I go off it for three to four days my joints ache again so I will stay on this product to get the wonderful benefits.

Interesting taste Review by

Still haven't decided whether I like the taste or not - could definitely see it tasting great in a salad but I take it straight and need a good wash down of water afterwards. Love that's its organic and looking forward to seeing the health benefits after taking it for a while.

I have been using this flaxseed oil for many years now for my daughter and myself to prevent constipation and inflammation. We also love it in a green salad which makes it even healthier and it also tastes good. I wouldn't be without it!

Very happy with this product. My daughter suffers from constipation, and this has really helped her. And great that it is organic and NZ made. Also impressed with the fast delivery from HealthPost. It costs me less to have this delivered than it would to drive into our nearest shopping centre!

I keep coming back to this product,... Review by

I keep coming back to this product, I like that it's NZ, unrefined and being organic is a bonus. While the taste and texture takes a while to get used to (I'm taking it straight) it is well worth it, and there are so many different ways to use it. The price on HealthPost is also way better than retail. is probably the fa... Review by is probably the fastest and most efficient health product company I ever met in New Zealand. I just order the product yesterday and it arrives Auckland today. That is wonderful.The taste of the flax seed oil is great and definitely good for our health

I love flaxseed oil. I think it is fantastic. Great for my skin, hair, nails and also for eczema I have found. The only thing I hate about this form is that it tastes horrible (my opinion only, some people love the taste). I tend to pour a table spoon into a glass of water and when it floats on the top it slides straight down and I don't taste it! Other than that fantastic product!
