    For those of you looking for a glass dropper that has the rubber nipple on it, please be advised that if left more than a couple of months the rubber on the dropper will melt. I got mine, some time ago, at the Pharmacy at Walmart, and the first year I left it in a zip lock bag over the winter, and it melted the rubber nipple. I use mine, then after a while pour the LGO into another bottle. If you leave the LGO in the dropper, it will melt the rubber tip.

    That's why I started using a q-tip... it measure it well without melting...

    Brushy Mountain sells this stuff called Bee Charm. I got some of it last fall and just opened it this past weekend to see if I could tell what it is. It smells like LGO and it in a gel, I was thinking maybe something like petroleum jelly. Not sure that it is any better than just using LGO.

    I was thinking it was a bit expensive, but I liked the idea of it being a gel. But odfrank does real good with just LGO, now q-tip or anything!
