Eucalyptus, Rosemary, Ravensara and Tea Tree are traditional herbs used to soothe and ease the minor coughs, colds and stuffy noses. You can use this as a warming chest rub, or put a half a teaspoon full in a humidifier or pot of hot water and breathe in. This is not a medicine or a drug however. This is a traditional remedy that supports your body's innate ability to heal itself. If symptoms persist, seek professional assistance.

Winter Wonder Balm FAQ
Is Winter Wonder Balm a Decongestant?
Winter Wonder Balm can act as a natural decongestant, especially when you use it in a steam. Just put 1/4 teaspoon of balm in a basin of hot water, make a tent over the basin with a towel and breath the steam in deeply. The eucalyptus and other essential oils will help to clear your stuffy nose so that you can breath easier. You can also apply Winter Wonder Balm directly to your sore, chapped nose and not only will it help to clear your stuffy head, it will soothe your poor skin.
What is Eucalyptus?
A piercing camphoraceous aroma, with a woody undertone, the scent serves to clear the head and cool the mind. Also has antiseptic, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory properties. Eucalyptus also increases energy and balances the emotions.
Where can I get more information on the ingredients Badger uses in their products? Badger has a great age on their website which gives great info on their ingredients. You can find it here.
Can I use your products on my children?
Sure. We have received feedback from Moms, Dads and Grandparents that Badger Healing Balm and Baby Balm are safe and effective when used on even the littlest Badger's skin irritations, cradle cap and diaper rash. Many people also use our Anti-Bug Balm, Sleep Balm and Bali Balm as natural alternatives for their children. As with all new products it is best to do a Skin Patch Test prior to full usage to test for any skin allergies and if you have any questions please check with your doctor.
Do you do animal testing?
Nope. W.S. Badger conducts absolutely no product testing on animals, as all the ingredients are safe and "food grade" when used in the proper amounts. (Essential Oils are always properly diluted.) We test all prototype products on families, friends, volunteers and ourselves. It's fun. If the new product does not pass our tough standards it does not make it to the marketplace. We have also gone through the process of getting certified by Leaping Bunny which means that not only do we not test our products on animals, but we have confirmed that none of our suppliers test their ingredients on animals either.
I have allergies to Peanuts and Gluten. Are Badger Products safe for me to use?
Badger products contain no peanuts, peanut oils, wheat or gluten, and should be safe for people with allergies. As always, when using a new product for the first time (and have allergies or sensitivities), it is always a good idea to perform a Skin Patch Test.
What is the shelf life of an unopened tin of Badger?
An unopened tin of Badger stored at moderate temperatures should be good for two to three years. If you open it and it smells good, it is good. Extremes in temperature and humidity will affect shelf life, so it is not possible to give an exact expiration date. The date of manufacture is imprinted on the side of the tin to give you a reference point.
How long will an opened tin last?
As soon as you open a tin of any product and stick your fingers in, the life span varies; again it depends on storage temperature and humidity as well as how clean the fingers are that scoop out the product. Essential oils will slowly but surely evaporate from an open tin; that's the pleasant fragrance you smell when you open one. You can expect your opened balm to stay good for 1-2 years.
What happens if one of my Badger products freezes or melts? Can I still use it?
Absolutely. You may find that the consistency will change a little. Sometimes the product becomes much softer and creamier if it freezes and then thaws, but it is still absolutely fine to use.
