Shelf Life and Storage from the time of distillation:
Approximately 1 – 2 years.
It is impossible to say exactly what an essential oil shelf life will be. The storage conditions will vary and make a significant difference. If the essential oil has been received directly from the distiller shortly after distillation and the glass bottle is kept dark, full, closed, and cool, we can make some generalizations.
Note that if an essential oil begins to appear cloudy, thicker, or if it smells more acidic, it has likely begun to oxidize.
Cautions: Lime Essential Oil is considered phototoxic. Users should avoid direct sunlight after application. Avoid use during pregnancy.
