What is Waihi Bush Flax Bloom?

This delicious blend of pure, fresh, cold pressed brown and golden flaxseed oil is enriched with blackcurrant, pumpkin, coconut and evening primrose seed oils. It thus includes the five important polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fatty acids and lauric acid, all in the right balance to give your pregnancy the very best start.

Because a woman on the average modern diet will be lacking in Omega-3, this blend provides twice as much Omega-3 as Omega-6 to provide the crucial Omega-3s needed to build a healthy brain and body for the baby. The brain is developed in utero and supplementation with Essential Fatty Acids during this time aids in the hardwiring process in the brain of a newborn for things such as vision, feelings, movement and language, it can even help sleeping patterns! The blackcurrant and evening primrose seed oils contribute the secondary Omega-3, stearidonic acid (SDA) and the secondary Omega-6, gamma linolenic acid (GLA), which are easier for your body to utilise because no conversion is required, ensuring your developing baby has the building blocks they need for a healthy brain, eye and nervous system and for general health of all body cells.

The pumpkin seed oil provides phytosterols (which possess anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidation activities) and a wide range of vitamins (E and A) and minerals (selenium, zinc, calcium, copper, iron, manganese). The coconut oil provides lauric acid, which is the main fatty acid in breast milk and contributes to increased metabolic rate/energy levels and healthy skin.

Why use it?

Flax Bloom is the product of choice for women who are wanting to become pregnant, are pregnant or are breast feeding.

If Mum is breast-feeding, baby will derive the benefit through her milk.


Flax Bloom is pressed from certified organic seeds of flax (Linum usitatissimum - Linseed) golden flax, pumpkin and coconut. Uncertified blackcurrant and evening primrose seed oils are added. The oil is high quality, extra virgin, unrefined, and containing no toxic substances or cholesterol. The oils are cold pressed in the absence of light, air and reactive metals and packaged in black HDPE plastic to further protect it against light damage.

Flax Bloom is available in 500ml bottles, identifiable by pink and silver FSANZ compliant labels, and now also as capsules.
Please refer to our Heat Sensitive Product Policy in the HealthPost Library for our ordering, storage and handling policy and guidelines.


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.

Store cool.
Can be frozen.
Once open keep refrigerated and use within five weeks.

Easy + cost effective! Review by
  • star

Absolutely love this product, my hair was falling out due to a hormone imbalance. This has helped so much.
I love that I can just chuck it into my smoothie in the morning and its super easy. Ive had the bottle for a while now too,
way more cost effective over a tablet. Would highly recommend!

Fantastic - great taste too Review by
  • star

I started taking this as we're trying to conceive, so thought it best to start now. I've been amazed at how well I feel and for the first time in my life, my nails aren't splitting and bending – they're really strong, and my hair is shiny too. I'm astounded that just a spoonful of this in my smoothies has made such a difference.

Initially I wanted to buy the capsules but I dessert spoon is equivalent to about 5 caps (or something like that) so the oil is definitely the way to go. Healthpost is also the best place to buy it as I shopped around a lot, and it's cheapest place to buy it.

Hugely recommend this product, I'll be taking it indefinitely now. Oh and my husband has started taking the men's version and loves it. Big fans!

My daughter took this throughout her first pregnancy, never had morning sickness and her pregnancy was a breeze (including the birth!!). My other daughter also took Flax Bloom during her pregnancy; again no morning sickness and an easy birth. And both babies have had no problems or allergies (as a lot of children in this day and age do) and have beautiful skin! I don’t know if that has anything to do with them taking the product, but I highly recommend it

Not the best taste, but really nutricious Review by
  • star

I've been using Flax Bloom when pregnant with our daughter and breast feeding. Being vegetarian flax is the best source of Omega and I felt it really help during pregnancy.

Not the most pleasing taste (well, neither is fish oil), so I either took a quick shot or mix with other food. My husband tried a bit out of curiosity and he said he didn't mind it ;)

I took this 90% of the way through my pregnancy and am still taking it now while breastfeeding. I had a dream pregnancy, no post-natal depression, and I have a very happy and alert baby. I feel pretty chipper most of the time too! Whilst I can't scientifically attribute those things to this product I would recommend it and will probably keep taking it once I stop breastfeeding. I like that it has other beneficial oils in it, not just flaxseed.
