I first discovered Badger Balm whilst cruising the cosmetics aisle of my favorite health food store.  I was immediately intrigued by their aromatherapy tins promising natural relief from all kinds of ailments, from headaches and stress to insomnia and absentmindedness.  I also liked what I saw on the back of the labels: each product uses just a few simple organic ingredients.  The base is made up of extra virgin olive oil and beeswax, with various essential oils for scent.

So far, I have accumulated five Badger Balm products: Lavender & Bergamot Sleep Balm, Sweet Orange & Spearmint Cheerful Mind Balm, Lavender & Orange Lip Balm, Lime Rocket Lip Balm, and Poetic Pomegranate Lip Balm.

Read on for my full review on each of these all-natural, organic products!

Lavender & Bergamot Sleep Balm and Sweet Orange & Spearmint Cheerful Mind Balm are two of Badger Balm’s aromatherapy tins.  Even though I have no prior experience with aromatherapy, I have really enjoyed using both.  They have strong, pleasant scents that are enjoyable without being overpowering.

I like to use the aromatherapy balms on dry areas of my face, especially around my nose for maximum scent impact.  They also work amazingly on cuticles.  My only wish would be for more hygienic packaging; I cringe at the germy aspect of dipping my fingers in the same tin over and over.

While both Badger Balm aromatherapy tins are almost identical except for scent, each of the the three Badger lip balms are very different.  My favorite by far is the Lavender & Orange Lip Balm, which is basically a miracle product for my lips.  When I use it regularly, my lips stay plump and smooth with no flakes–the heavenly scent of lavender and orange doesn’t hurt, either.

Lime Rocket Lip Balm is also very nice.  Between its über-creamy texture and strong lime scent, Lime Rocket reminds me a lot of one of my favorite desserts, Key lime pie.  Poetic Pomegranate Lip Balm was a bit of a disappointment, as it barely has any scent at all and the texture of the balm is a bit waxy.  (You can see the difference in the photo above.)  However, it still works very effectively at smoothing my lips.

Overall, I love Badger Balm products.  This small company clearly puts a lot of heart into their aromatherapy tins, lip balms, and other goodies–not only do they strive for an organic, fair-trade, and cruelty-free product line, but their products really do work.

  1. Great review. Badger Balms sound wonderful!

    Thanks for showing the ingredients, I’d like to try some of their products. I have had the same thoughts about ‘dipping fingers’ into tins like that, but as I read your post an idea came to mind: one could buy a package of those little tasting spoons that ice cream shops use to scoop out a bit each time – since used for food service they should be pretty sanitary. Or a ‘greener’ solution would be using a household spoon that can just be washed between uses. Not sure why I didn’t think of those solutions before…

      Those are some very clever ideas–I may try using a spoon next time I reach for my aromatherapy tins! I usually just wash my hands each time, but it can get a bit tedious. I almost wish they would just package the aromatherapy balms in the hands-free lip balm packaging! :)

    I really like the Badger lip balm, but haven’t tried the aromatherapy yet! I will probably grab one next time I go grocery shopping.

  4. Deep in my heart I am organic too. Too bad we don’t have it here in the Philippines.

    I love Badger lip balms too. I use them everyday. I also love their sunscreen which I use on my kids.:)
