    • I don’t know an exact shelf life, but the batch we made is still good after a month. Since it is only sugar, coconut oil, and essential oil—3 ingredients that don’t go rancid quickly—I would think it would last at least a year if not longer. Just check for mold and smell it before using. Don’t use if you see mold or if it smells rancid. But, you may not even need to worry since this stuff is so good, you should be able to use it up quickly anyway!
