July always starts off with a bang. Happy 4th of July weekend.  However you are celebrating, make sure it is safe. 

July typically has some of the hottest days, we need extra water and time in the shade to keep our cool, but so do our furry friends.

Here are a few tips on how to keep your pets safe this month:

  • The 4th of July is the most common day for pets to run away.  Make sure gates and fences are secure.
  • Always have plenty of clean water available. 
  • Know the symptoms of heatstroke(excessive panting or difficulty breathing, increased heart and respiratory rate, drooling, mild weakness) and limit exposure on extra hot days. 
  • Never leave animals alone in a hot vehicle.
  • Don’t let your pets spend time on hot asphalt.  Serious burns can occur. 

Keep yourself and your pets cool and safe this month!

What is Beard Oil?

Beard oil is used to condition, soften and moisturize beard hair. It is an effective moisturizer for the skin beneath a beard as well. If you are considering beard care products you may be overwhelmed by the many products available for beard care. This is especially true if this is your first foray into the beard care product market. Beard oil is used to tame beard hairs and help them have a softer and fuller texture. It can also help to promote beard growth. To guide you through your process we decided to put together this little beard oil guide where you will find answers to the most common questions about beard oil. 

New Product: Bath Tea Bags

Badger Creek Bath Tea Collection

Our bath tea bags come in three varieties that all provide rich aromatherapy for your bath and detoxification and rejuvenation for your skin:

  • Stressless Dreams Relief –  Let your evening bath relax you into enjoying Stressless Dreams. We combine relaxing lavender, rose green tea, and Chamomile for a savory stress-reducing treat. Sea salt acts as a natural antibacterial and will help replace valuable trace minerals.
  • Dead Sea Detox – We blend our Dead Sea Detox Bath Tea with mineral-rich salt from the Dead sea. Our bath teas will help replace minerals your body has lost throughout the day. Here at Badger Creek, we offer a blend of herbs used for centuries known for their detoxifying effects.
  • Celestial Skin Care – Indulge your skin in a tea specially blended to Pamper, nourish, and revive your skin. Pink Himalayan salt acts as a natural antibacterial while also allowing for trace minerals to be absorbed through your skin. Oatmeal and powdered milk and Rose will soften your skin, while Calendula and lemon balm are known for their health benefits.
