According to the University of Minnesota, Apricot Kernel Oil is a cold pressed oil with a faint aroma that makes it an excellent carrier oil. Since it is cold pressed and unrefined it is best to store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Shelf life is about a year. Extreme heat will shorten the shelf life. Discard if it becomes rancid or discolored.
