    The packaging was great, the cold pack was still a bit cool, but probably could've been colder. I think everything made it. Saw a ton of little floating things inside the package moving around.

    I'm confused by the little compartment that's marked 1/2 oz. and 1 oz. in the phyto container. What's that for? Why is there a tiny bit in there? It's like 1/2 oz? The instructions talk about militers, yet that thing is in oz. So weird.

    Anyway, had to bust out measuring cup and a weight scale to figure out the amount of phyto to dose. I guess maybe I didn't need to be that scientific and should've just dumped some in. But it was weird.

    If you remove the cap from the small section, squeeze the bottle to fill to your desired level for dosing and pour it in. Its very convenient/easy.
