Yes, the container does not have a sealed lid with a hole to act as a "dropper". Do you have an eye dropper somewhere in the house you might use? I got one at Walgreens for my lavender oil. It cost around $2. The lavender oil is also anti itch I believe. I put a few drops in boiled water, let cool, then collect in a spray bottle and spray it on my hair and scalp to "refresh" somtimes.

Good luck, hun. I'm crossing my fingers for that scalp of yours.
