STORAGE & HANDLING
Filled drums should be stored in well ventilated, covered areas at temperatures which should not exceed 70°F (21°C) for extended periods of time. Air should be excluded from partially filled drums by displacement with Nitrogen or CO2. Citrus oils are subject to oxidation. This process may be inhibited by the addition of antioxidants. Cold Pressed Orange Oil is "winterized" when it is first produced by storing it at freezing temperatures to remove the majority of natural waxes. Although this process is done as thoroughly as possible, trace amounts of waxy solids may remain and settle out of the product when stored for an extended amount of time, particularly in cold temperatures.
Samples and certificates of analysis are available upon request.
