Rub it down with a light coat Flax seed oil and start it off in a cold oven set it to 350 with the inside pointed to the oven floor for 1 hr. Leave it in until the oven is cold iron. Do this every day for 1 week then every week for 1 month then every month there after.
I tried using flaxseed oil to season my skillets a while back after stripping the old seasoning with lye...they looked great, but when I started cooking on them, the nice black seasoning flaked off. I just did another one, and used a couple of coats of lard...that seems like it worked much better. It cooks great, and no issues with anything flaking off.
