Expiration/Best By Date - each bottle comes with an expiration date printed on the label. This is the first date that one of the oils might expire. Because of the anti-oxident properties of the oils, as well as the vitamin E from the camelina and abyssinian oil, your oil blend may last longer. Keep it in a cool location, like inside your home. The dark colored glass jar will also help keep it from oxidizing early. If the smell of your oil changes as the expiration date gets closer, or any time after that date, that is a sign it is going rancid an it is best to toss any remaining oil.
