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.

Because of its high a-pinene content, it's recommended that oxidation of rhododendron anthopogon oil should be avoided by storage in a dark, airtight container in a refrigerator. The addition of antioxidants is recommended.
