It depends: It depends on what you mean by "homeopathic products." if they are genuinely single homeopathic remedies (not mixtures) made by a reputable homeopathic pharmacy, they will last indefinitely. Intense heat -- and sometimes xrays ; MRI scans -- can inactivate them. Homeopathic remedies differ from botanical ; nutritional supplements, which do expire and which some people mistake for "homeopathic.".
