How to Warm Up Baby Oil Easily:
There are more than one ways to get the oil rolling. Typically, the oil comes out cold when you squeeze the container. You could shake the container before taking out a drop or two.
Don’t apply it directly on the baby. Take the oil in your paw and rub the oil with your hand. This will warm it up without needing any more effort.
Although, you are likely to find oil not just cold but solidified in the winter time. No matter how hard you shake or how strong you pull, it won’t work. In that case you will have to warm up the bottle:
