*NOT FOR INTERNAL USE 

*High in the chemical constituent Limonene which makes it flammable.  Do NOT use when making candles or in the laundry.
*Irritation & sensitization may occur with oxidized oils 2 years and older and should be avoided.
* Best to store in the refrigerator.

*Due to the volatile nature of oils high in limonene, Citrus oils must be stored in a dark, airtight glass bottle in the refrigerator.   ALWAYS verify the cap is completely closed or oxygen with degrade your oils.

*Citrus oils are high in the chemical constituent limonene.  Limonene is a very volatile molecule, meaning is quickly evaporates, causing these oils to oxidize quickly (1 - 2 years).  Oxidized oils are skin irritants and skin sensitizers and should not be used topically or by direct inhalation from the bottle once they’re past their 2 year shelf life or if there is less than 10% remaining in the bottle after a year and a half.  Diffusing expired oils is fine as well as adding them to cleaning products.  The antimicrobial action still remains, though weakened, once past their shelf life.
*Keep out of reach of children.
*Store in a cool dark place.
*Avoid contact with eyes and mucus membranes.
