The Most Useful White Elephant Gift Ever! It's Under $20, too!

Posted by Battle Balm on

The yearly white elephant gift exchange can be a blessing (because you save money on gift buying) or a curse (because you have no idea what to buy your recipient).  You may be wondering how your $20 is going to buy anything worthwhile for your co-worker. You don't want to be the laughing stock at the office party, especially if your present was not meant to be funny! And you certainly don't want to be the gal who couldn't come up with anything good and just settled on a box of chocolates. During the holidays, we don't think anyone of us needs more sweets!

What the heck is Instagram? This CEO is using the pound sign!

Posted by Dylan Jawahir on

We've grown out of our diapers. Battle Balm is no longer a startup company. We survived what I believe to be the most difficult part of the product life cycle, proving that a market exists for us. Now that we are viable, it's time to grow the product and the brand. But in order to grow, we need to reach out to people who haven't yet heard of Battle Balm.

Posted by Dylan Jawahir on

Recovering From Major Knee Surgery Without Ice The whole RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) idea is almost completely dead.

Yet, the method continues to be used in sports facilities and doctor offices everywhere. The mnemonic is too easy to remember and thus, has been too difficult to forget. It’s still written in school textbooks. Teachers are still teaching it. Medical doctors are still recommending it. Physical therapists (PT) are still practicing it. And, the injured are still using it. I am not a believer. I have never been a beli...
