I ordered rosehip seed oil a couple of weeks ago, and did not put it in the fridge. The other night I used some with DMAE and Collagen serums, mixed together in my hand. I thought the rosehip seed oil smelled a little funky, or is it supposed to? Should I keep it in the refrigerator? Should I throw it away? Its only been a couple weeks, but maybe a couple of weeks is all it needs to go rancid....

I doubt it very much. I think the problem is that different oils smell different, and rosehip oil smell strange to you.

Rosehip does not smell good to me either, nor to my kids !!! They say YUCK mom your hands smell gross !!  However, I don't think mine has gone rancid, it just smells bad (to me) naturally.  But I have read that it has a very short shelf life, like 6 months, so use it quickly. 

Is a 6 months shelf life accurate on rosehip?

Also, I have heard rosehip has vitamin c in it, is there enough to interfere with my copper peptides (supposed to be spaced 12 hours apart from Vit c).?

Thank You.

Not vitamin C but other antioxidants. We sell very fresh rosehip oil, so that helps. From time to time we may be out of stock because we try to keep very low stocks.

I guess this all begs the original question, does it really need to be refrigerated to prolong its shelf life?

I keep ours in an air conditioned environment below 70 F, but not in the fridge.

It will probably be fine in the fridge.

My Rosehip Seed oil has a distinctive smell to it, too.  But every time I order it from SAS the smell is the same.  It's kind of "nutty" with an organic smell (I don't know how else to describe it).  I keep mine in the bathroom cabinet and it's fine.

Call me strange .... but I love the smell of Rosehip oil, for some reason it reminds me of coffee.

Can the shelf life of the rosehip seed oil be extended by adding T-50 vitamin E oil?  or some other preservative for oils?  This is what I do with my other essential oils, which was recommended by the place where I bought them.
