Storing your salts correctly is imperative to making sure that you get the longest shelf life out of your salts possible.
The packaging that we ship your salts in (whether it is our bulk re-sealable bags or PET jars with a screw top lid) are ideal for keeping the salts stored over a long period of time.
Salts scented with certain essential oils or fragrance oils can break materials down over time. We recommended the following materials for repackaging and storing your salts: PET
, or high quality polyester/polyethylene bags
(this is the same type of bulk bags that we use).
Here are some other tips to storing and re-packaging salts:
-Keep salts well sealed in their packaging (air tight packaging is ideal)
-Store in a location that is dry
-Keep the salts out of direct sunlight
-Store salts in rooms/areas with high humidity or moisture
-Expose salts to undesirable odors as because of the porous nature of the salts, they will absorb the odor.
-Repackage salts and store in metal containers
About Clumping: We sell natural salts without additives and sometimes the finer grains may clump slightly over long periods of time. This is normal, if this happens simply break up the clumps and the salt should flow freely again and not clump for a long time. This is not an issue with medium or coarse grain salts.
Typical Shelf Life of Salts:
-Raw, Natural Salts (no color or scent) - If properly stored these salts don’t really have an expiration date, they’ll keep for years and years.
-Colored & Scented Bath Salts- These salts generally have a shelf life of anywhere between 6-24 months (color and scent may fade over time).
