    Shelf Life of Oils
    The shelf life of an oil will vary based on heat. If you refrigerate an oil, its shelf life will increase. If you have a large amount, you can freeze the rest of it if you know you will not use it for a while. We highly recommend either refrigerating or freezing what you will not use right away.
    All oils can be used up to 100%. The only time you may want to use less is when it is a very rich oil, or it is an oil that is expensive.

The birds are totally free range, feeding on an all natural diet, which includes natural plants with antibiotic properties. No growth hormones or medicines are used, and they are not fed on corn, meat meal or hydrogenated oil feed. This is the real thing, as natural as you can get. All the natural fatty acids are preserved by low temperature refining processes and refrigerated storage.

    NOTE: Research has shown that emu oil is almost 100% Triglyceride which means that emu oil is nearly a complete neutral lipid. Since emu oil lacks phospholipids and the human skin is phospholipid deficient, the transdermal properties are phenomenal. Thus, when emu oil is mixed with herbs known for their ability of acting on skin or muscle-joint problems, the results can be extraordinary.

    I keep some of my oils in the fridge, and some in the bathroom under the counter. I'll probably add more to the fridge; it's just kind of a pain to go get them from the fridge when I need them.

    Wow, this list is extensive and I needed this. I just tossed a lot of oils and butters because I bought a bunch all at once two years ago and didn't get to use them up. I will not stock pile oil ever again for this reason, it has a relatively short shelf life.

    I don't think I've ever had an Oil go totally Rancid on me to the point that it had to be pitched.

    I agree with AtlantaJJ I won't be stockpiling Oils.

    That was my reason for starting the Oil Challenge in the 1st place.

    I do have a nice amount, but right now it's mostly Blends.

    I'm sure this Winter I'll be doing through quite a few of them.

    @IDareT'sHair & @AtlantaJJ, I agree with you both about buying too many oils. Me with my pj behind, I'm still buying some; I am soooo addicted to oils, they just all sound so delicious and work wonders on hair, I just have to buy it :lachen:. I just recently purchased, pumpkin seed oil, broccoli seed oil, Indian Macassar Oil, Hemp Seed, and Wheat Germ :drunk:. Opps, I forgot Mystic Oil, Gleau, Keratasea Serum, and Maracuja oil.

    Coffee Gurl, I know you got thebomb Oil Stash.:lick:

    And you are so right, it is very addicting.:yep:

    My plan is to use those 'Older' Oils on top of my DC'er before Steaming.

    Or maybe steaming with some of them to use up some of the older Oils I had.

    I just wish I could remember to do it.:perplexed

    At this point, I think I have more "Blends" than Regular Oils.:yep:

    IDareT'sHair, I always use an oil over my hair when DCing under the steamer. I also pre-poo with some and use some in my DC. Since I don't work outside of the home, I always keep some in my hair with a plastic baggie on. So, I guess using them in all those different ways helps with not having to throw very many away ~.

    Coffee That's great! I need to remember to do the DC/Oil thang.

    I'm suppose to be doing it throughout the Winter Months to help combat dryness in the cold weather. (Something You don't have to deal with):yep:

    I'd also like to try an Oil Steam on Freshly cowashed hair. Just to try it out.:lick:

    Guys my oils don't go bad because I cook with them as well as use them on both my body and hair.

    DON'T THROW AWAY Outdated oils, if you don't feel comfortable using the, send them to me. I use old oils for my body, and eat fresh ones.
