How can you tell when Emu oil has gone bad?

Recommended Posts

The Emu oil I've been using is starting to smell somewhat stronger than when I bought it a month ago. It has a stronger "chicken grease" smell than it once did, but it doesn't smell rancid or disgusting, really.

Does anyone who's been using Emu oil a while know when it's time to toss it out? Skin biology's Emu oil has a 3 month shelf life, it seems. I wonder if it just goes rancid, or it's just not bio-active, anymore. Anyone know?

Good question!

Firstly, I read somewhere recently that you should keep all new bottles in the fridge to prolong life to 2 years.

Up until a couple of weeks ago, I didn't realise the emu oil had a smell! Now after having packed up smoking, I'm finding that it smells pretty disgusting LOL!! I might add a drop of lavender oil to it to disguise the smell.

Hi guys,

Just got this reply from Dr. Pickart:

Dear Misty,

If kept cool, about 6 months. But it is like a food and too much heat can damage it.

I guess that why mine is getting a little more chickeny <--is that even a word...lol. :-k biggrin.gif/

Thanks to the replies to my question. I may have to throw out the emu oil.

Misty, Chickeny sounds better than EMUey! biggrin.gif

Maya, sounds like you're having some kind of "olfactory sense" awakening! Enjoy your new world. I wish you the best of luck with your battle against nicotine. Since you're a fighter, I know you'll kick smoking in the "butt"! smile.gif
