Badger Anti-Bug Balm

Can a bug repellent be effective and natural?

Badger says yes.

In fact, they claim that their Anti-Bug Balm will “strike fear in the hearts of biting insects everywhere.”

How do they do it? Simple: They use tried-and-true ingredients such as castor oil, citronella and lemongrass to name a few.  And they don’t just throw this stuff together willy-nilly. It’s tested by the makers themselves in the field and carries the certified USDA organic seal — which is especially great when you’re using it on the whole family.

It is suggested that you reapply the balm every three hours, well worth it since it feels good and soothes dry skin while doing its main job.

Badger packs this good stuff in three sizes, but perhaps the most clever and efficient is the1.5-ounce twist-up stick. It keeps hands clear of the balm and has a secure cover. Genius.
