  • Only buy what you need and what you will use in a timely matter
  •  Corn, flax, sesame and hemp seed oil will last about 6 months
  •  Extra virgin olive, almond, hazelnut and macadamia oils will last about a year
  • If the oil smells like glue, it is rancid and needs to be disposed of. Do not pour oil down sink! Pour into a container and throw away.
