Badger was created by Bill Whyte who, as a young boy, loved nature and would check out the fragrance of every blossom, fruit, leaf and herb he came across. At the age of 12 he visited a herb garden and learned the medicinal and aesthetic properties of each herb and as a result his love and passion for herbs were cemented. Now having, created Badger, he gets to realise his dream and passion by experiencing some of the best essential oils and herbal extracts the world has to offer.
The inspiration for Badger products came about after Bill, who owned a contracting business building healthy non toxic houses, suffered from severe cracks on his hands along with some of the carpenters that worked with him. Bill and his carpenter friends couldn’t find any lotions to treat their severely cracked hands, so Bill decided to formulate his own by mixing beeswax and olive oil on his stove. He started to experiment with this basic formula and Badger was born.
Bill and his carpenter friends tested out this formula and, to their relief, it worked fantastically. From it’s humble beginnings in 1995 Badger has grown into a thriving family run business.
Badger aims to create fantastic, pure and effective products of the highest natural quality, based on simplicity and thoughtful preparation, with the sole intention to protect, soothe and heal.
