Other Information: Citrus oils are easily oxidised. It is often best to keep them in a fridge. Ensure that the bottle does not have too much air in it. Personally if I have purchased a 10ml bottle and find myself with say 3 ml left, I will decant that into a smaller bottle to extend shelf life to prevent oxidisation. You will smell when oils are rancid. If your citrus oil becomes rancid over the years, simply put into a spray bottle with some distilled water and use as an antibacterial spray in your shower or toilet areas.
