Formulas with alcohol will have a shelf life of about 3 years. Always shake well. Formulas without alcohol will have a shelf life of about 2 years. Always shake well. We do not suggest using expired products because we cannot guarantee the quality of the product as potency of the herbs will decrease after the product has expired.
