How to store olive oil

Light, air, and heat all contribute to the deterioration of olive oil. How quickly the oil goes bad depends on many factors. This includes where and how you store it and the temperature of where it’s being stored at in your kitchen.  To track the oil's quality, smell the olive oil when you first open it and then again before each time you use it —just like you'd sniff that open bottle of milk before using it to make sure it's still fresh. You'll know when your olive oil is going rancid when it "starts to take on a more crayon or Band-Aid smell.

We recommend storing our olive oil inside a closed kitchen cabinet and keeping it tightly capped, away from any source of strong light, and at a room temperature between 45°F and 72°F.
