BTD Forums  /  Supp Right For Your Type  /  Castor Oil's longevity ?

Does anyone know now long castor oil lasts?  Back in 2007 I poured castor oil over a cloth to put it over my liver when I was having problems with my gallbladder.  I never did use it and it has remained sealed in a Tupperware container since then.  Since being re-Swamied as an Explorer and having liver issues come back, I was thinking of using it.

  Do you think it will still be useable, or should I just chuck it and start fresh?          Thanks.

if it smells off, chuck it

use it again if not.....next time reuse your cloth, but stick it in the fridge so it doesn t spoil

To be honest, I'd be a tad concerned at storing it in plastic?! Oils do absorb chemicals from the plastic...

two things I remember a figure of up to six months if you leave it in the fridge, no longer and also I keep mine in a glass jar only.

It's been stored 6 years in plastic? I'd chuck it out and buy fresh.
