So, Bill make a simple concoction of olive oil and beeswax: the original Badger Balm was born.

Badger Balm has been to the South Pole on the hands and feet of explorers on skis; it has soothed the fingers of trapeze artists and rock climbers; it has been a staple for river rafters, sled-doggers and weight lifters for years.
