Flax Oil?

What, if anything, can I use flax oil for? I saw some last night at WalMart in the vitamin section so I decided to buy it, hoping that I could use it to make me pretty :)

    Spoken like a true PJ!

    I haven't heard about anybody using flax oil on their hair (but then again, I tend to not pay a lot of attention to home remedies and hair treatments, preferring to save my kitchen for food I will consume rather than apply).

    But I did find this post from June:

    Flax oil goes rancid pretty quickly, by the way. It needs to be refrigerated. It's healthy to consume but has a definite scent, which would probably not be one that you'd like to have other people associate with you.
