1. Twist to open... grab the top in one hand and the bottom with your other and twist. Open.
2. Push gently up from the botton (like a push pop) and apply.

The balm gets real soft if left in the sun or heat just like any other balm. If this happens, place upright in a cooler spot and allow a few minutes for it to reset.
