Shelf Life of Angelica Root Essential Oil:
Our freshly decanted Angelica Root essential oil will last for 1-2 years minimum from when you open your amber glass bottle if stored correctly:
Primary Storage Considerations:
Keep away from direct light (U.V. radiation)
Keep in the amber glass bottle with lid tightly closed. Only open when you need to and decant into a smaller "working" amber glass bottle if possible (and label so you know what is in it). This is to reduce oxidation.
Secondary Storage Considerations:
Keep in a refrigerator at around 4 degrees celsius.
Why Angelica Root essential oil and not Angelica Seed essential oil?
I have written a more detailed explanation in our News & Blog section. Angelica Root essential oil is much more therapeutic than the seed derived oil. As mentioned please read the article for more details.
PLEASE REMEMBER: All our exotic and rare (hence more costly) essential oils and absolutes are available in jojoba. This allows you the benefit of enjoying Angelica Root Essential Oil but in a jojoba oil base at a great price. An extremely cost effective way to experience essential oils and absolutes!

Because of its (+)-limonene, a-pinene and 8-3-carene content, it's recommended that oxidation of angelica root is avoided by storage in a dark, airtight container in a refrigerator. The addition of an antioxidant to preparations containing it is recommended.
