Blended essential oils - quality and storage

We supply our best selling essential oil blends in classic cobalt blue glass bottles so that the quality of the oil is not affected by light or leaching from plastic containers. To maintain the properties of essential oil blends, its important to know how to store them. Essential oil blends need to be stored differently to solo oils. For example - while citrus oils are particularly prone to oxidation and can therefore be stored in the fridge, other oils like rose otto and fennel may actually solidify if too cold, which can mean you need to warm them up to use them. As a result, blended essential oils should be kept in a cool dark place, but not the refrigerator because while too much heat and light can speed up oxidation, the process of the oils heating up and cooling down, which can damage their qualities, overcooling can mean you cant use them immediately.
