Should I refrigerate Mustard Oil?

Just bought some at VIKS, and I am not sure if it is one of those highly perishable oils best stored in the fridge.

  1. No, it should keep unrefridgerated.

        I dunno, I never refridgerate it and I never heard of people refridgerating it. I don't know if that would affect its composition.

        You know in places where mustard oil is commonly used, it is quite hot at times during the year and it isn't refridgerated. So I am pretty sure it isn't necessary.
