I had one bottle last about twenty years. Why? Because it's a tinture - essentially a gum (benzoin) is dissolved in alcohol - if the alcohol evaporates, just replace it. If it totally hardens I suppose it might be difficult to revive the tincture - but it has no "active" ingredient to decay or oxydize. If you look around you can buy powdered bezoin or benzoin chips to make your own. As an adjuntive antiseptic and skin protectant, perhaps it's most important role is in making sure bandaids stick under harsh conditions - like wetness. It's essentially a dissolved gum with antiseptic properties and I use it in place of bandaids for small cuts. It protects it from moisture and closes the wound. Oh, avoid the one with Aloe in it, it's ONLY meant for appliation under large adhesive bandages (like bedsores) and the added aloe inhibits the sticky properties of the benzoin.
