Badger Balms Offer Quality, Nostalgia and the Green Products You Want

Badger Balm Vanilla Coconut Everyday MositurizerWhen you were young did your parents, or maybe grandparents, have those tins of strange vapor rub like goo they called balms or maybe salves?

My grandma had them for all sorts of things, from muscle rubs and arthritis relief to remedies for colds and flu.

Those are what Badger Balms kinda remind me of, though they smell and feel much better than those old metal tins full of questionable balms and salves. But they remind me of my grandma and give me that nostalgic feeling of comfort.

Badger Balms are USDA Certified Organic. The company started in 1995 and was formulated in the kitchen of “Badger Bill” Whyte’s home and sold from the back of his Chevy van. Now the line of products is distributed to every state in the US and to many other countries including China, Australia, the UK and South Africa. They became USDA Certified Organic in August of 2008.

I like Badger Balms because they are a high quality product with a nostalgic old fashioned feel. Every time I use one I think of my grandma who passed away over a decade ago.

These are products that can be (and are) found in old fashioned General Stores and are also at home in fashionable spas. Everyone from trophy wives to construction workers can enjoy these products. From balms for hardworking hands to the Vanilla Coconut Every Day moisturizer that I currently covet, they have something for everyone, even babies.

Badger makes more than just the balms that are sold in the little metal tins. They also have lip care, moisturizers, soaps, oils, body butters, aromatherapy products, sunscreens, baby products and more- all of them top notch in quality.

I had a weird burn like rash appear on my chest and Badger Balm made it disappear after using it for just two nights. That’s so awesome because I kept putting regular lotion on it for days and instead of getting better it got worse. Then I tried the Badger Balm and it was almost instant healing.

The Bug Balm is amazing and smells pretty good. The cuticle, hand and foot balms all work wonderfully and leave your skin feeling so soft and smooth. I use them before going to bed at night so I wake up feeling great.

A great thing about the company itself it that they are very green. Not only are Badger products 100% natural but the company is owned and operated by family and they use local resources and work with local businesses whenever outside help is needed. They conserve energy, recycle and are committed to doing their part to save the environment and precious resources.

Badger Balm has everything a greenie, and anyone who looks for quality products could want… even a bit of nostalgia.
