You all know that it's a thick balm in a glass bottle (yes, there is a plastic bottle option but it looks cheap, the glass bottle is a classic).

I have one and really like it. I use it quite often. My bottle has about 10% left, but it's getting harder and harder to "get it out" of the bottle. No matter how much I shake it, you have to shake it even if it's full, the balm stays in the bottom and only very tiny drops of balm come out.

My question is if there is any way to use the remaining product without shaking the bottle like crazy. I don't want to throw it away, it's a really nice balm.

can you microwave it? How about putting the bottle in warm water before use?

How about leaving the bottle upside down and letting gravity do the job.

It sounds funny to some, until they experience how strange it is. Undecided 


I'll try the warm water before application.

Gravity doesn't work here. It will take many minutes and still half of the quantity stays inside. For real.





Talking about the upside down...

Foolproof solution, just break the bottle

I'd use the gravity method to get the remainder into a small sample-type jar, which would allow you to scoop with a finger.

Alternatively you could suck it out with a straw

I own Myrsol Emulsion in both the plastic bottle version as well as the glass bottle version.

To get the remaining out of my glass bottle, I just store it upside down  Lightbulb  Shocked

I use the Emulsion daily. Same problem. I grab a box of those long wooden coffee stirs, and scoop it out - works well. A bit "Sally" like but a don't have a counter situation to allow upside down storage - which is most practical or seems.
