Older medicine bottles starting to lose liquid and failing corks.

I have a bunch of medicine bottles that are starting to lose the seal after displaying for many years. Is there a trick to sealing the cork again without losing the look of the item?

I originally used wax on mine but had some issues with the messiness. On one occasion I had a reaction to getting the contents of one on my hands while performing the repair. I then invested in some good rubber gloves. Currently I use clear super glue.
