I was given 2 badger balms.  

The creamy cocoa:   Ingredients: *Theobroma Cacao (Fair Trade CertifiedTM Cocoa) Butter, *Olea Europaea (Extra Virgin Olive) Oil, *Cera Alba (Beeswax), *Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil, *Ricinus Communis (Castor) Oil, *Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Oil, CO2 Extracts of *Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary), *Hippophae Rhamnoides (Seabuckthorn), *Rosa Canina (Rosehip), & *Calendula Officinalis (Calendula).

and the evolving balm:  Ingredients: *Olea Europaea (Extra Virgin Olive) Oil, *Ricinus Communis (Castor) Oil, *Cera Alba (Beeswax), Essential Oils of *Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender), *Rosa Damascena (Rose Otto), & Anthemis Nobilis (Roman Chamomile), and CO2 Extracts of *Rosa Canina (Rosehip), *Hippophae Rhamnoides (Seabuckthorn), & *Calendula Officinalis (Calendula).

 

I am still breastfeeding my 3 year old, just 1-2 times a day  for a short time.  Do I still need to worry any of the ingredients effecting him since he is breastfeeding at his age.  Is there a good web site to say what these essential oils might do?  Thanks.

I have used both of those Badger Balms on my three-year-old, and on myself while I was breastfeeding.  To my knowledge, they are very safe products.

Thanks for the reply.  I was wondering about all the essentials oils.  I didn't think about using it on him, but if you can then certainly shouldn't be an issue.
