Boiled has solvents and drying agents which may affect the color of some woods in a negative way. RLO is just raw pressed oil, takes longer to dry but wont affect the color of any woods in a bad way, plus it smells way better.
cheers

raw is pressed from the seeds and nothing more, its food save but dries real slow, really really slow

boiled has gone through a process that changes the oil chemically making it quicker in drying, but also makes it poisonous

i love the coloring of the wood, many woodworkers use it to raise the richness of the grain and color of the wood but thats all personal taste
