Raw Linseed Oil is used to put oil coats on the bat.Â
The oil sips through the wooden sheets of the bats and it helps the bat to not soak any moisture.

You should ideally oil the bats with 2 coats when you purchase them.
Let the oil be soaked in the wood and once the surface becomes dry, you can start knocking in with old cricket ball mallet or a bat mallet
