Bill Whyte was a carpenter by trade and an herbalist by avocation. He could
never find a product to heal his rough, dry, cracked hands—the result of
daily hard work in the tough New Hampshire winters. Bill whipped up a batch of
the original Healing Balm in his kitchen using Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Beeswax,
Castor Oil, Aloe Vera and Essential Oil of Sweet Birch—a traditional New
England herbal remedy.
The result was astounding: a simple, all-natural, soothing and healing balm
that really worked! And a company was born.
A team of about 40 friendly badgers formulates, manufactures, and ships
almost all of the products from our facility, known as The Badger Mines. Badger
works hard to create a healthy business with ethical and charitable principles.
Call and ask any employee. You’ll hear about our free organic lunches,
green initiatives in every department and our charitable giving
practices—not to mention our lunchtime full-contact badminton games!
