Tips about flax seed oil:
- Oil should always be kept in the refrigerator in a dark bottle to maintain freshness.
- Never cook with flax oil or heat it on the stove or in the microwave; this destroys the benefits of the oil.
- As the oil sits over time, it loses its freshness, smelling and tasting stronger.
