Do Herbs Have a Shelf Life?
These are common questions we’re asked. And, as with many things, the answer is a bit complicated, depending on a variety of factors.
- Depends on the herb
- Depends on how it is stored
- More specifically, depends on access to light, air, and heat.
Herbs Don’t Expire…
Not like you might think of milk or meat going bad. Or a fruit or piece of bread growing mold.
Expiration dates on items are often not that useful. A typical time frame on supplements is one or two years from manufacturing. But it’s not like they are good one day, and worth throwing away the next.
