Tyler, boiled linseed oil is not the best choice, unless you are going to put a sealer coat on top of that.

Edible Mineral oil would be your best choice for a wood countertop. You might could find it at a drug store or a hardware store, label as Sharpening Oil (Norton's Sharpening Oil is listed on the can as "food safe."). Mineral Oil is also marketed as a mild laxative, so that's another place to look for it at the grocery store or drug store.

Not sure how remote you are... could it be that your closest "pantry" is the closest watering hole?!

Now, if you apply a finish coat on top of the boiled linseed oil (lacquer, varnish, polyurethane, shellac), then using BLO would be fine.
