If you have another place as cool and dark as your fridge, no.

In fact, you don't have to do anything. You can store it wherever you like. If you plan to use it all within a month it doesn't matter much.

But if you want to store it, store it in a cool, dark place. In most houses it won't get much cooler and darker than the fridge.

The cooler it is, the longer it will last. The longer you want to store it, the more important it is to keep it dark and cool.

Can neem oil be frozen?

Freezing Neem Not Recommended
by: NatureNeem.com

You should store neem oil in a cool dark place and away from sunlight. Do not store above 46°C (110°F) and below 5°C (41 °F). When subjected to repeated freezing and thawing, Neem Oil will deposit a thick black viscous layer called stearin, at the bottom of the drums and containers. It is recommended not to allow Neem Oil to solidify and thaw, repeatedly. If neem oil solidifies due to low temperatures, thaw it gradually (for example putting in bottle in warm water below 95°F) . Putting the bottle in very hot water may reduce the effectiveness of oil.

I called agriculture doctor in India, expert in neem oil and its products. According to him storing in cool, dark place it last for at least three years and after that some efficacy is affected. Neem oil is composition of many compounds so it's safe to use. Over time it settles some solids.
