Your Best #BadgerTips

Badger fans rock – and so do your #BadgerTips!

Recently, our customer service team received this delightful email from Badger fan Erin M:

“We use the hair oil to get peanut butter and other exciting (and sometimes unknown) sticky things out of my toddler’s hair and I use the Damascus Rose oil to shave my legs, it makes them amazingly smooth and is so moisturizing.”

We always love it when folks like you share new ways to use our products. So last week we asked our Facebook and Instagram fans to share their best #BadgerTips, and received awesome responses! Below are a few of our favorites*. (Note: For clarity, some responses have been lightly edited.)

Sore Muscle & Sore Nose Relief

Judy H says, “In a bind, the Cooling Blend Sore Muscle rub is excellent relief for a nose sore from tissues during cold and allergy season.”

#BadgerTips: Cooling Blend to soothe sore noses

Badgers have long used many of our balms to soothe our sore noses during cold, flu, and allergy season (my personal go to is Baby Balm). But, Judy’s clever suggestion of soothing skin and also getting the menthol goodness of our Cooling Blend Sore Muscle Rub is nose-soothing 2.0!

Instagram user @stereofab has a new take on stuffy nose relief: “Before going to bed, rub Badger Aromatic Chest Rub on your feet and cover with socks to help with congestion.”

Food for Your Hair

Briana H wrote, “[Argan Hair Oil is] great as a hair mask mixed with an avocado!”

#BadgerTips: mix Argan Hair Oil with an avocado for a DIY hair mask

Is there anything better than a DIY spa treatment at home? The fatty acids in avocados make them a great treatment for hair and skin. Blending in our Argan Hair Oil can boost the nutrients and smooth the consistency while making the mask (and your hair) smell great.

And speaking of DIY, Liz C. shared this #BadgerTip, “I add a pinch of organic finely milled sugar to my Damascus Rose Beauty Balm, and it makes the most fabulous lip scrub. My lips are exfoliated, moisturized, and plump! Love!”

#BadgerTips: use Badger lip balms to soothe dry skin anywhere on the body.

Winter Face Saver

Johanna M shared her tip for winter-beaten skin: “In the winter you can use any of the Badger lip balms on your face as some extra added protection from the winter wind.”

I have taken to using Badger Mustache Wax on my face prior to winter activities, but sometimes I don’t have a tin on me. I almost always have a tube of Badger lip balm, though!

Anastasia B also has a year-round use for lip balms (beyond the lips) Cocoa butter lip balms (my favorite is Creamy Cocoa) as moisturizer sticks for your eyes! Apply before bed, after the gym, etc.”

User @mel_wri on Instagram was on the same wavelength as Anastasia: “Got dry skin? Apply a dash of lip balm out of your #badgerlipbalmstick and banish dry flaky skin from the kingdom.”

Furniture Care

User @vsarmen on Instagram gives the Good Stuff treatment to their furniture: “Any of the badger balms work with removing water spots from wooden furniture.”

…And Don’t Forget the Tins!

#BadgerTips: use empty Badger tins to save small objects, like seeds!

Heather M. says, “I keep my tins and use them to store small items like buttons, paper clips, and thumb tacks.”

Reuse > recycling – especially with colorful Badger art!

You can check out other uses for Badger products (and tins) here, and even share your own #BadgerTips! We love hearing from you, so drop us a line, anytime.
