Shelf Life

3years

Safety & Warnings
  • May irritate skin and mucous membranes, use at 0.7% maximum. May be skin sensitizing (try using oils high in d-limonene or alpha-pinene to help). Use caution for young children. Tisserand suggests the use of citral be restricted to 0.5% maximum on the skin during pregnancy. Oils containing citral should be avoided with antidepressants (specifically Bupropion) that inhibits CYP2B6 enzyme. Tisserand states that this risk is considered "theoretical" based on the research.
  • Oils high in Citral are known to be a mucous membrane irritant.
  • Aldehydes are sensitive to oxidation and for this reason and can be stored in a refrigerator for the longest possible shelf life.
