What is the problem in this Shampoo

These Shampoos are good in every aspect but but after a few months it smell good in bottle but when we apply it to hair it smells  salty or as if we have added too much salt in it. 
What would be the cause?

    What does salt smell like to you?  It doesn't smell like anything to me. 

    My guess is that your orange essential oil is chemically degrading.
  • @Perry if you smell the salt from very close it has a weak but unique smell. Although these Shampoos don't have salt, they smell like they have a lot of salt when you put them on scalp. 

    About orange essential oil degrading, what would be the problem? (This batch of oil, this supplier of oil or this oil and we should try another essential oil?)
