You can oil a bleached bat it won't harm it but keep in mind raw  linseed oil will darken the colour of the blade some  brands more  than others.
OWSAT cricket bat oil will  slightly darken the willow but leaves it lighter than other brands lve used.

If you want some colour back in the bat, sand it and oil it.

The idea that one brand of raw linseed oil stains a bat less than any other is nonsense.

If you think that has happened previously then I would suggest it is down to the natural variations in the willow.

Not nonsense at all  Howzat oil gives a more natural look certain other brands can  leave a new bat looking yellowly

The clue is in the name - RAW linseed oil

Be it GM, GN, Howzat or a 5 litre bottle from Toolstation (other hardware stores are available) you're buying the same stuff. The difference in colour is the natural variation in the wood, nothing to do with what brand of oil you apply.

Back on track somewhat... I oiled my Chrome 404 without doing anything else first and it looks just like any other bat
