Oil Painting on Paper

I heard that if you paint with oils on paper that you need to stretch the paper, is that true? Because I’m only seeing paper stretching with reference to watercolour…although I do use very thinned down paint.

Also, if you want a thin wash do you use turps or linseed oil?

Impart thine knowledge unto me o painters of WordPress.
